We have just returned from Monday-Friday trip staying at this hotel. Firstly have to recommend the coach co. Lovely clean bus, fab drivers, tea served whilst travelling and travel we did.

They had good entertainment considering the time of year it was. We heard... More

Ok having read several past reviews I was a wee bit apprehensive about this place. However it was perhaps others that had a higher expectation of what a cheap weekend break is. The short version is: Yes it is dated…. but it is clean, food is more than good enough , people are helpful and friendly, beds are perhaps a... More

Enjoyed recent coach tour at this perhaps dated but nonetheless clean and friendly hotel. Staff helpful, courteous and efficient. Varied menu choice and good food. Bedrooms clean and warm. Hope to return later in the year. Bill & Effie Brown.

Breakfast was ok but again some got small portions and others got platefuls, no... More

This Hotel is situated in the Victorian Village of Straphpeffer, although giving the appearance of a little run down from the outside, the Travel Lodge rooms are of good quality and the food excellent as is the friendly service, the Reception and dinning area are in need of up grading but the pool and gym facilities are very good.
