I had planned a child free day for my wife and me, including an overnight stay in Canterbury. After spending out on Marlowe Tickets and budgeting for lunch, dinner and several drinks in the local pubs, I didn't really have stacks of money left for a hotel. We have previously stayed in the Catherdral Gate Hotel (which is a corker), but at £111 for the night was a bit too extravagant on this occasion.
The new Premier Inn came in at over £60, but the Travelodge was a very nice £47.
It's not inside the City Wall, but only just across the road near the subway, which keeps it quiet when you are ready to sleep. We have used Travelodge in the past and found them to be very basic, but worth it for the money. The beds in particular used be be quite uncomfortable and creaky, but we were very pleasantly surprised to find that they seem to have improved this little issue. My wife wasn't impressed to find that there wasn't a bath to soak. The wasn't a massive selection of tea and coffee stuff either, but reception were happy to supply more when we ran out.
The restaurant is pretty basic, but provided a nice all you can eat buffet breakfast for £7.65. The dinner menu didn't look too bad either, but we ate out in Canterbury (Tacos Locos - Great mexican).
Not the greatest, but worth it for the low prices...
