“Basic but Comfy”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

This was one of the better Travelodges I have stayed in, but bearing in mind it is only a few years old, it still should be fresh and clean looking. It was basic but good enough for an overnight stay.
One of the lamps was broken, the heater didn't work and I had to re tune the T.V, to get any channels at all.The staff were lovely, polite and helpful though. The new bed was extremely comfortable! It was also very quiet considering it was near a busy road.

we stayed here early May for 2 nights. Having never stated in a Travelodge before i wasnt sure what to expect. Check-in was quick and efficient by a very polite lady.

I was pleased that there was a card security door for access to the rooms, made it feel safe. The corridors were extremely clean, no scuffs or anything on the paint work. The room was the biggest surprise. It was very spacious and immaculately clean, not a speck of dust anywhere. The bathroom was spotless. The room lived up to any room you would get in a "highter" rated hotel. I was extremely impressed with bed and bedding. White bedding which was immaculately clean. This was one of the most comfortable beds i have ever stayed in while at any hotel, and i have stayed in some expensive ones but none live up to the comfort of the bed here.

Despite this Travelodge being next to a main road and major roundabout, beside a garage and a KFC, it was extremely quiet and peaceful, no noise at all.

Its in a very convenient location for access to Barnstable and Bideford. The carpark was adequate, never a problem getting a space at any time.

The only tiny thing i will mention is that when we were booking we were offered a "breakfast" inclusive rate, which we didnt take. On arrival i was glad as breakfast is served in a box? Maybe this is standard at travelodges, as i've not stayed in any others.

I would highly recommend staying in this Travelodge if you are looking for somewhere very comfortable, peaceful and in a great location to explore this area. Thanks Travelodge Barnstable for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: we were in room 11, this was a ground floor room at the back of the building, very quiet.

We stayed here at the weekend with our two small children. We have stayed at Travelodges in the past but this was the best yet. The decor was perfect - no scuffs on the walls of stains on the carpets (as is often the case at some Travelodges). The receptionist was very welcoming, the bed was exceptionally comfortable and the room was spacious and welcoming.

My only two negative observations was the clutter outside the bedroom window (undoubtedly overlooked by staff) and the attention to detail in cleaning (there was an empty toilet roll on the floor behind the bin and some plastic rubbish left on the bathroom floor). Also, three towels for a family of four is not really enough.

As is the case with the Travelodge brand, you tend to get what you pay for. However this particular branch has had a recent return and it is one of the best Travelodges that we have stayed in to date.

I stayed with my girlfriend on a wed night as we used it as a base to go surfing at Westward Ho! Online price was £37 if I recall, we did not have breakfast included. Car park was tiny but we managed to get a space early eve. It's free too. Friendly receptionist. It is pretty much located right off the busy main road ( currently undergoing repairs) which concerned me when I realised our room was facing the road on the first floor. I needn't have been worried though as I only heard one motor bike and a lorry the whole night.... And I am a light sleeper!

The room was clean, no grotty curtains, marks on the walls or tired looking bathroom as in recent Travelodge stays around the country. Even a little pot of shower gel! And another pleasant surprise.... Two substantial pillows each! No more trekking to reception to ask for more. New bed....very comfortable and no noise from other guests in the corridor as people came and went.

All in all a marked difference to many of the Travelodge hotels that we have stayed in and a handy base. The town of Barnstaple is a bus ride or 10 min car journey away (45 main walk according to the receptionist) We picked up fresh crossaints from the Spa attached to the petrol garage opp the hotel. Alternatively there is a big Sainsburys a couple of mins drive away.

We are visiting Bristol in the summer.... Choice of two Travelodges within the city centre.... One of which has just been refurbished... That will be the one we book!

Room Tip: Rooms along the front are quieter than you would think!

Really, all we want is a comfortable clean room preferably downstairs that is reasonably quiet. This is what we got. On arrival we were allocated an upstairs room but on asking if there was one at ground level we were immediately given room 15 by a very pleasant lady. There was a disability toilet about 10 seconds away from our room and we had a very pleasant night's sleep. I like the new curtains and bed runner that Travelodge are now using, too.

Room Tip: The window overlooked a hedge and not the car park so nice and private and a little quieter

Very pleased with my stay here, great base for the area, a few fast food outlets and supermakets in walking distance, staff were all fine, good nights sleep.
Had to leave a night early but this was a family matter and no reflection on the hotel itself.

Clean and friendly free parking although have to pay for wi fi usage.
Booked by phone booking completed beware of extra booking fees ie £2.50 for booking over the phone and another £2.50 if you use your credit card to make payment. Quick email and text confirmation.
