Last weekend was my first stay in this Travelodge and it was clean, tastefully decorated and a real credit to the Travelodge brand and today I booked two more nights later in the year.
OVERALL, AN EXCELLENT HOTEL!
On chatting to the nice chap on reception however, I learnt that it was a former Innkeepers Lodge, which made sense as the last Travelodge I stayed in of such high quality was Fleet, also a former Innkeepers Lodge. I was however disheartened to hear that Northampton Round Spinney was due to be hacked to pieces for what Travelodge call a ‘refurbishment’. To downgrade such a pleasant hotel in such a way is an utter outrage.
I look forward to staying there again and perhaps the Travelodge Directors should also visit and compare it to their new so-called ‘refurbished’ hotels and see how they are downgrading the brand.
My room was a double, very large, with a good size TV providing a good selection of channels. Situated right next to a Toby Carvery it also has free parking.
If I had to make a criticism at all, it would be that the low energy light bulbs made it quite difficult to apply my makeup for my night out, though this isn’t really the fault of the Travelodge who are just doing their bit for the planet!
