OK, so Travel Lodges are pretty basic. No, there is no restaurant, no breakfast included, no mint on the pillow, etc. However, if you are looking for a comfortable bed and a fantastic shower then this is a good cheap place to stay. I booked a family room (this was all that was left when I booked) for £39.99 and got a huge double bed and a couch that can sleep two. There was a TV in the room providing me with all the crappy terrestrial TV that there is but useful for the news in the morning.
It is perfect for those not wanting to pay for luxuries you generally don't use. The shower is one of the best I have had also. Very strong and warm and the whole room was very clean. They provide a kettle and coffee/tea for the mornings however there are no irons, hairdryers, etc. You can borrow these from reception if you need. As for food... they offer a £4 breakfast which includes orange juice, croissant, cereal, banana, and coffee. It gets delivered to your room at whatever time you want. They also allow you to go out for food or order from a take away into the hotel. Overall the place was clean, the staff friendly and helpful and a good nights sleep was had.
