Having travelled to The Potteries to visit part of the family, I stayed the first night in this Travelodge. I hired a car so appreciated the free parking, but it was a long way to the centres of Stoke, Newcastle or Hanley so a car is needed preferably, however, there is a Toby pub attached which was lively on a Friday night without causing any noise in the rooms.
Check in was very friendly and efficient and I was given a real key rather than the swipe card so no need to get it reprogrammed if it goes near another card in your wallet. The room hasn't yet been refurbished by Travelodge, and is very dated, and the matress was also very worn. The walls were also quite thin, and it didn't help that there were a very amorous and noisy couple in the adjacent room just as I was dropping off to sleep, and again in the early hours, I'd say their rating of their room will be significantly better than mine!! The bath was clean and comfortable in the morning.
The attached Toby pub also serves breakfast which was sampled and enjoyed. Being in buffet style it meant that I could choose what I wanted, and not have things I don't like on the plate, or make myself look like a fussy eater by asking for things to be added and left out etc. The Toby also has free WIFI so was a handy way to look at my emails before departure.
