“Trip to Scotland ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

The hotel was clean and we could always park very close to it, usually right by the door. It was not noisy during the night. Tony the receptionist was great and v welcoming. The room was well presented but one plug did not work. An ideal place for dogs as they can stop in the hotel and there was a dog walk from the car park. The hotel was very basic though, no food available and no bar but if you just need somewhere to sleep it's perfect. There is a restaurant a minute walk away.

Stayed May 2015, traveled with family

The room was large & freshly decorated, the double bed & the single bed were comfortable, an electric kettle & tea, coffee, sugar were provided and there was a small but adequate LCD TV on the wall. The room was quiet. There was plenty of nearby parking and also another company's pub / restaurant across the courtyard which was very convenient. The only slight problem was that it was not well sign-posted and so the first time we passed it and had to turn back and look again and we found it second time round. We arrived in broad daylight so I don't know if it would be easier or more difficult to find if you arrive at night. Altogether we were very happy with the accommodation for the very reasonable price we paid for 3 people sharing a room.

My wife and I stayed two nights. It's definitely a budget hotel with few amenities. Like all hotels in this chain, the rooms are very sparse, there is only a single plastic chair to sit on. Amenities are virtually nonexistent, they don't even provide kleenex. The "free wi-fi" is only for 30 minutes every 24 hours - so if you move to a new hotel and used up your free time, you'll need to pay more. They are inferior to the Premier Inns and Days Inns where we also stayed.

On the plus side, it's conveniently located near the motorway. There are two restaurants within walking distance. And Robert, the Haitian manager on evening duty was absolutely exceptional - very friendly, informative and helpful. His positive attitude helped compensate for the hotel chain's miserly aspect. The housekeeping staff also did a good job keeping the room clean.

My husband, myself and son stayed here for 1 night and thankfully it was only 1 night. Check in was quick but receptionist wasn't very talkative. Our room was pretty dirty, the carpet had loads of stains on it, the light behind the bed was filthy and the toilet door had something smeared on it which I haven't a clue what it was and don't want to know. We never complained as we knew we were only there for 1 night. There was a wedding on in the place next door and I think there must have been loads of guests from the wedding staying here as there was loads of noise with people going to their rooms.

The person in the room directly above us walked around the room for about an hour and all we could hear was creaking floorboards. Wouldn't stay here again.

typical travel lodge, comfy and cheap. We use travel lodges frequently. However we were very disappointed this time. The website states it is 1 mile from Falkirk city centre, It is however 5 miles!!!!

Dear Guest, Thankyou for taking the time to review our hotel. We are dissapointed that you found the hotel 5 miles from Falkirk town centre but the web site states that the hotel is 2.5 miles from Falkirk and not 1 mile,
I will look into the distance and contact our IT department to change if it is in fact 5 miles from the town centre but I hope it did not deter you from using Falkirk Travelodge again.
many thanks

Greeted by Robert on reception. A very helpful young man . Then Room was spacious and clean . Although our room faced onto the highway we didn't find this a problem and even had the window open as there is minimal traffic during the night. The shower was good and we especially like that Travlodge put their hand and shower/hair gel in dispensers now. The bed was super comfy , you can borrow a hair dryer , extra tea/coffee/milk is available from reception if needed. Parking is free.
