If more than 1 occupant in the room, even though you may have booked as a couple, make sure you have more than a single towel in your room, no phone to call down and ask for another... No A/C so you'll need the windows open and will be woken up by the train passing at high speed. Pillows are very hard, there are extra ones but they are all the same.

Lovely staff, clean room and good bathroom. Bed was very hard. Room was quite noisy, although this was clear on booking and check in. Staff made us aware they did have stag and hen parties and that our room was well away from theirs. It wasn't a problem at all but they were great in telling us what to do if it became an issue. Problem was it was room very hot, we couldn't sleep with window open due to outside noise as advertised (its right behind KFC drive through and got noisy with cars being revved up etc), but it was incredibly hot with window shut. A fan in the room would have helped a lot, rather than a card saying the room was hot so they had opened the window!

Overall the stay was what you expected from a Travelodge that is reasonable in price. The price can not be faulted, as it is good value for money. The receptionists were helpful and friendly, although the place was very quiet for a Saturday night. The room was tidy and simple. When we first walked into the room, there was a particular fusty, smell which was not pleasant! There was a loose cap on the desk, which looked as if it had been thrown back on rather than attempted to fix. As we visited in a summer month (July) it was particularly hot, and the staff had made an effort to open both windows, which was nice. However the was no air conditioning, and so it was extremely hot at night. I was woken up at 2:50am by a group of loud people all talking outside the Travelodge, which then meant I struggled to get back to sleep. Also the hotel is extremely close to a train line which was disturbing as the train was very loud as you would expect. If I had known about the train line then I may not have chosen this hotel. Therefore this disturbed us most of the day and night too. Apart from these factors, the Travelodge was what you would expect.

Fantastic overnight stay before flying out from Newcastle airport. Receptionist was helpful and advised on eating places that we could go too. She also gave us directions to another store we were looking to purchase things from. Friendly, helpful and professional.
