This is the second time I have stayed in this hotel. I was with my two daughters for a cheap break to Alton towers, it is approx 30 miles drive to the park, with a McDonald's breakfast stop on the way if that is what you like. We were checked in quickly and efficiently by Ash, he told us of... More

Stayed here on twice on the up and down journey to Drayton Manor. We stayed elswhere for the night inbetween. This is a budget stop and we wanted somewhere cheap to get our head's down. For this purpose it was fine and comfortable enough. As stated, it is in massive need of an overhaul, it is dated and feels old.... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times but my most recent stay is likely to be my last. After a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed I attempted to have a shower before heading out the next morning. Each time the water was turned on the shower head/rose popped out, resulting in water running straight down the wall... More

as this hotel is showing tiredness awaiting refurbishment I feel that the nightly charges are too high for the state of this hotel. On the other hand the staff are second to none and nothing is too much trouble which made our stay that much more enjoyable and they should be complimented which we did.

Staff helpful and friendly. One staff member saw I had left a forgotten bag next to my car and brought it to my room. Hotel clean, beds comfortable. Grounds tidy. Hotel near several places of interest and for food.

Un refurbished travelodge old style furniture towel rail rusty and not working old style tv makes your eyes go funny, but saying that, Ash on reception is a big asset to this branch he is friendly informative and very helpful, and the rooms were cleaned properly, The only thing that let's it down is the refurishment that's due.

I'd only stayed in a refurbished Travelodge before so didn't know what to expect. I've heard mixed reviews of the hotel chain so was a little apprehensive, but, I turned out to be pleasantly surprised! When I initially walked into my room I thought it was a refurbished one, because it looked so fresh and clean, but judging by the... More

I stayed at the Southbound Travelodge for 4 nights whilst attending the Bearded Theory music festival at Catton Park. The staff were just brilliant. Friendly, welcoming and charming. I was on crutches and the manager went to great lengths to make sure I was accommodated on the ground floor. The bed was really comfy, everything clean and pleasant.. and the... More
