When visiting London for a weekend away this is the hotel I will look at first. It has good links to Stratford Westfield to shop and then into the centre of London. The hotel (usually) is a decent price also compared to the surrounding area. The check in process is always easy and the rooms are decent size and clean..... More

Just back from a weekend stay . The staff were excellent and were very friendly. One lady even helped to carry luggage to the room. The room was clean and tidy and the bed comfortable. We had a problem when the plug sockets kept fusing. The culprit was a faulty kettle and the fault was sorted cheerfully and promptly. Despite... More

I went for dinner with friends the night before the Star Wars Celebration event so we could catch up and plan our weekend. They definitely needed more staff in the kitchen as there was only one person doing the cooking and with such demand that evening, it would have been good if they had been more prepared for the potential...

This hotel is excellent value for money, the food is was really tasty and a reasonable price. The staff were really friendly and couldn't do enough for you especially Josie who went above and beyond the call of duty when I needed a feminine product and she provided it for me out of her own bag

This was my second visit, but this time we stayed two nights instead of one. I booked to take my daughter to summer and the city, knowing the location was good. It's very close to the dlr, the royal Albert stop, turn right and you re there in a couple of minutes. On check in, I was told the room... More

Usually go to a Travelodge when staying in London, and this is the best one we've stayed at so far. Kids loved the airport just outside and watched the planes coming and going for a bit. Close to DLR station so easy to get in to central London quickly. Breakfast nice enough although I would probably recommend eating out somewhere... More

Visited 13/8 when the temperature was 23 degrees, hardly scorching, however the room was unbearably hot. Thankfully a fan Had been left without requesting. This was helpful to a point but only if the fan was directly on you. With 3 people seeking relief from the heat, this wasn't really an option. This is the second Travelodge Ive stayed in... More
