“Great value for money”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Good hotel, clean rooms, does what it says on the tin and more. Staff at the reception were welcoming and really helpful. Night food also was very tasty. Bar was a bit limited, but did what it should.

Breakfast also really good.

Town Lodges are a reference all over the country, but a special mention for PE, as the staff is smiling and more than helpful and the view on the sea is the perfect way of waking up. Breakfast is great. A good place to stay for business or leisure.

Room Tip: Ask for the view on the sea.

I stayed for 3 nights on business. The rooms are small but comfortable. The service is excellent. I was pleasantly surprised at the personal attention payed by staff at breakfast. The breakfast itself is very good. Town lodge is perfect for business.

Stayed here for a week on business, the rooms are nice and clean and you get a very nice reception with great service! They have transport for you to travel to and from the Boardwalk for those who want to go gambling or enjoy many of the great restaurants there. Great breakfast with a lovely view!

This is a well run economy hotel. Rooms are rather small, and would be cramped for two. Otherwise the room was well furnished and equipped, including tea and coffee facilities. Great comfortable bed. The room was spotlessly clean as was the lovely bathroom.

Breakfast is up to the usual good standards of the City Lodge group. Reception staff are friendly, helpful and efficient.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are better

Stayed here for 3 nights, over a weekend, in September. I had very professional service from Bianca at the front desk, however on asking for my room to be made up on Saturday afternoon, the cleaning staff were not great. The facilities are average - nothing overly exciting - same with the breakfast. I was impressed with the undeground parking facilities thought - a real genius idea in PE, where the wind can make getting out of your car in the open impossible. I would recommend the Town Lodge for a one nighter, longer and you'll need a little more space and better service.

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms have a lovely view - try the floors higher up though, the lower down floors do get...

Spent 5 nights here, exceptionally high standard for budget range hotel. Rooms are not overly large but are clean, well appointed comfortable. Usual tea and coffee facilities provided in room (only drawback is nowhere to put suitcase so has to stay on floor). Bathroom very clean, however shower only no bath. Staff very attentive and helpful. Very good breakfast buffet excellent variety, if weather good you can sit outside on terrace and enjoy breakfast while looking out over the beach and sea. Free wifi for 15 minutes every day. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance.
