Arriving in reception during the late afternoon, it was not an auspicious start to our stay to find four very disgruntled ladies ahead of us. Somehow their room bookings had been 'lost' and the hotel was now full. The poor chap on the desk was doing his best to sort things out. As I understood it, he managed to find them rooms in a sister hotel not far away, put a refund on one of their cards and credit them with funds to cover extra taxi travel. It was with some trepidation that we presented our credentials after the ladies had left. However, despite a bit of confusion caused by two of our three key cards initially being issued for the same room, we managed to secure our three rooms.
Though the hotel is very much a 'no frills' establishment, we find it good value for money. We stayed here last year around the same time. It is clean, comfortable and very conveniently placed for walking into the heart of the city as well as for the castle and waterfront areas. I was impressed with the shower: all too often these are unsatisfactory in hotels we have visited, being without much pressure and of unreliable temperature. However, our room's shower was fine. True it was a fixed shower head (though partially adjustable) and powered via mixer taps, but it gave a good pressure and a decent, reliable temperature.
The NCP car park across the way doesn't seem to get overly full (during a November weekend), but is a bit of a trek if you have large/heavy cases. Also beware of the cost. Though a validated ticket (done at the Travelodge reception) entitles the bearer to 24hrs stay at £9, once you go beyond that period the fees rise. We arrived at about 11.15am on the Saturday and departed shortly after 5pm the following day, which cost £19 in total.
Though we didn't take advantage of it, the buffet style breakfast they offer (advertised as 'all you can eat' and free for kids) looks to be quite good value. Probably not top notch grub, but likely to match the nearby Wetherspoon's in terms of quality and quantity. Maybe we'll give it a try next time.
