Four of us (2 couples) were looking forward to a great weekend in the north, booked this as a central location with easy access to Newcastle etc.
On checking in a stag party were in front of us already the worse for drink throwing chocolate bars around and being loud and using foul language. Our hearts sank a little bit wondering what was to come.
Room was clean, tidy and servicable.Went out Fri night to Tgi Fridays and Skiff pub which was good and within walking distance. However later that night back at hotel had to put up with rowdy guests returning from their night out, bloke running naked from room to room on 2nd floor, people knocking on random doors etc, did not get a good nights kip.
Saturday night more hi jinx ensued, more female and male groups arrived!
We returned back to hotel after a fab night in Newcastle ready to get a good sleep only to be denied this from the antics of some of the other guests also returning from their night out but not respecting any other guests.Screaming , shouting , banging doors , throwing cans out of windows and running around corridors.All four members of our party did not get any sleep!
On top of all this lift and vending machine went out of order.The Police were called on both days.
Upon checking out I complained to the lady on reception who was very apologetic and said that travelodge used to advertise this hotel as a stag/hen do location but have recently removed this status, however it is still regarded as such a venue, and in our experience to be avoided at all costs unless travelodge are willing to have more staff and security to back up the one female receptionist on duty.
DO NOT stay here.
