Me, my wife & our twin girls checked in at this Travelodge. We were greeted by a very friendly guy at reception who introduced himself as 'Mad' Mick. We were checked in quickly & shown to our room. Even though the hotel had not yet been refurbished our room was still satisfactory for our stay. The stay was made extra... More

If you want a no fuss, no hassle stay, with fresh comfy beds and pillows, free parking, very friendly staff, this Travelodge is great. Its basic, but for a few days its comfortable. Only issue is poor phone signal

Been staying here now for the past 4 weeks. I work in the nearby town of Swadlincote and highly recommend this overlooked gem. Firstly, the staff. Everyone is great. I've gotten on well with all reception staff and in particular, Mick who will do absolutely anything to ensure your stay is as pleasant as possible. The room is clean and... More

Stayed here for one night and it was very comfortable. We actually went to the northbound one accidentally but the lady was great with directions to lead us to the southbound Travelodge. Mick checked us in and was brilliant, he even put an order through for us for takeaway and delivered it to our room. I work in a four... More

We arrived and was greeted by the most helpful receptionist. A very warm welcome and couldn't help enough. Demi you are a credit to Travelodge. Thank you for your help. Room was basic but that's what you pay for. It was very clean. :)

I stayed here for a single night with my toddler for a day out in Alton Towers the next day. It took us two hours to get there and there are no signs for the hotel prior to the turn off. It can take you unawares. Also the Northbound Travelodge shares the same Postcode. So make sure you are approaching... More

After a terrible nights sleep, I decided to get an early shower. As I got into the shower, to my disgust I found pubic hair up the shower wall and to add to my disgust, the mirror which had steamed up, revealed a msg from a previous occupant. Needless to stay I will not be using Travelodge in the future.

Firstly, I would recommend you commute to this hotel in daylight as leave it too late and it is extremely difficult to find (and easy to drive past). Sat Nav postcode the website gives is of no use! Secondly, don't stay in room 27; the boiler/plant room next door will keep you up, even more than the traffic noise from... More
