For a Travelodge, this is nowhere near as bad as others I've stayed in. I can only put that down to the fact that until fairly recently it was an Innkeepers Lodge, and it appears the management have not yet got around to stripping out all the furnishings and allowing deterioration to start. Only a matter of time.
Until that happens however, the rooms are pleasant, there are still pictures on the wall which add warmth, and the place is clean and comfortable.
M&B Vintage Inns next door with decent beers and food also coop and Macdonalds.
Would stay again.
