I have stayed at the 247 Hotel and the previously named Travelodge Hotel over the past few years and can give an honest opinion of the hotel in it's present state and the transition from a Travelodge owned hotel.
The staff are friendly and will go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay.
For e.g., I booked my Niece, Nephews and great Nieces (from E.Sussex) into the 247 to attend a family funeral late last year. They told me that their accommodation was great, clean rooms and the staff were very flexible on allowing more time to vacate their rooms (obviously, if they're very busy then flexibility can be negotiable at a cost).
Improvements since the 247 Hotel people took over are:
Free Wi-Fi in every room and in the dining area (used to have to pay for the Wi-Fi...so much per hour/day)
Reasonably priced drinks, e.g., presently they are selling John Smith's bitter at £1.50 a pint and the usual price per pint is around £2.30 which is fairly good.
Breakfast is cheaper (used to be £7.50 and now around £5.00/£6.00)
They've also started making bacon butties + coffee for £2.50...sounds good.y
My criticism is that you can't order snacks, a range of sandwiches (with chips/salad?) during the day...we don't all want a main meal....
I remember this hotel when it was known as The Avant Hotel with a conference suite attached.
It seems the new owners are in the process of refurbishing the exterior and interior of the conference suite, which makes sense as there is a lack of conference/training rooms in Oldham.
There is a swimming pool also attached...not sure what the new owners are going to do with this as it's currently closed but was frequently used under the Travelodge name.
Erm...that's about it....except that I don't understand the 'serious' negative comments being made...e.g. a complaint from a lady about being treated differently because she was Asian....I've never experienced this, maybe some people have their own agenda. (and...Amina B....it's Asian not "Asain")
I have no interest in this hotel other than I stay here regularly. It's a budget hotel but well run by new staff and great staff from the (old) Travelodge days....
