“Nosiy...but lovely staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Absolutely lovely staff and very clean generally.Our bathroom had frayed towels and grimy floor and skirting. But Friday and Saturday night is party night, and all the other guests seem to be clubbing. I had no sleep until 4.00 am as people were running up and down the corridor, slamming doors, shouting and generally partying in their rooms. Probably ok in the week. I know they the rooms are cheap but I would of liked some sleep!! You have been warned.

Excellent reception staff - but to pay for the car parking is ridiculous - Travelodge need to sort out a deal with the car park owners.
And I expect clean pillows, a hot shower and free wi-fi. 2 out of 3 aint good enough - no wi-fi in the 21st century unless you pay ridiculous money shows the management stuck in the 20th century. Wake up and smell the coffee - business users come here and do not expect to pay extra to park the car and get connected. It smells of the Ryanair school of business management, where soon you have to pay extra if you want to sit down.
Of course if they sorted this out everything else is good - so sort it out.

The Staff was the only thing about the experience that was in any way pleasant.
It completely ruined the nice evening me and my girlfriend had! And very much spoilt our first Valentines together! We have used Travelodge a view times together and have no problems. However after our experience we will consider looking else where.

My stay here couldn't have been any better, rooms are basic but very clean and you get what you pay for. I found the service here second to none, joe on reception and Kate I found to be extremely helpful.
Parking is a bit of a nightmare but I understand this has nothing to do with the hotel itself. Will definitely be staying again.

This is a lovely hotel for a travelodge the beds where comfy, staff really friendly and very welcoming. Rooms are spacious, clean, but my only fault for this hotel is extremely hot it felt like we where about a kitchen but reading other review seems like others felt the same. I would return but with a fan :)

Room Tip: More than I expected :)

Clean, safe, conveniently located hotel in the heart of Chelmsford. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. , The room was basic but comfortable and extra towels, bedding and a hair dryer were provided upon request, free of charge. Good variety in the continental breakfast. I only had to pay for myself and my kids ate free. I would definitely stay there again. Parking is a bit expensive because it is operated by a different company but I did not have a car so that was good. 30 minutes free parking for anyone picking me up or dropping me off. Overall excellent value for money in this cheap and cheerful hotel.

We had a one night stay, I accidentally booked a double room for my son and I, which the staff changed to a family room with no fuss at all. The staff were polite, helpful and accurate with directions to the university and station. They booked Taxis immediately as I requested. I was advised of the cheaper parking option as soon as I arrived. The room was very clean, and extra pillows were brought as soon as I asked. The breakfast was great for £5 booked on line in advance. Travel lodge as it is meant to be, ideal for our visit. No complaints at all. Thank you.
