“Decent value if the price is right”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We booked this at a very cheap rate as we had a morning flight from Prestwick and it is superbly situated for the airport and just a few minutes drive away.

It’s hard to argue that we didn’t get value for money as the room was cheaply priced, clean and quiet, albeit very sparsely decorated. However, the main thing we wanted to do was sleep and the bed was not very comfortable. It had a huge dip in the middle and both of us felt like unless we slept to the outside of the bed at opposite sides, we would be sucked into the middle.

Whether this was just bad luck with our room, or typical of the other rooms I don’t know, but the hotel does provide decent value as long as the price is not high (i.e. if I’d paid their normal nightly rate, would not have rated as high as 3).

We stayed here for a night prior to flying out on holiday. Hotel is fairly close to the airport and there are a couple of restaurants nearby plus a 24hrs Asda. The rooms are clean but basic and there is not a lot going on down at reception or facility wise but for a bed to get your head down its hard to beat the value it provides.

Good value for money. We were able to book in advance and take advantage of cheap rates! Clean, comfortable, plenty of hot water. A very nice room. We were able to get a meal at Frankie and Bennys next door which was really good as well. Easy to find, but not a lot of parking for the size of the hotel, still we always managed to find a space. Staff were great and very helpful.

Extremely good vfm! It would be ridiculous to rate this other than 'excellent' for value at £15 for the night. Booked in advance and got exactly what we expected basic hotel room in a good location but a little noisy from the main road, plenty of local restaurants we ate at frankies and bennys on a Monday night and got a 25% discount (Monday night discount!).

You know what you're getting with the Travel Lodge - basic accommodation at a reasonable price. This is true for the TravelLodge in Ayr also - where we stayed for two nights at half term. The family room was basic - pull out kids bed, TV, kettle, bathroom. We slept well. Staff friendly. Bathroom could have been cleaner but was fine once I wiped it over with a baby wipe.

The location was pretty good - easy to find right next to a Frankie and Benny's and a Subway. Asda with a cafe within 5 minutes drive. Ample free parking. 5 minutes drive into Ayr and Prestwick. A good base for exploring the surrounding area including The Robert Burns Museum.

Room Tip: Room 7 is on the ground floor overlooking the car park.
