Did the job - wouldn't return
Posted Apr 5, 2015
Booked this as I couldn't get into the Travelodge next to the leisure centre where we were seeing The Blackout play for the last time. I paid £45 so didn't expect much and so didn't feel it appropriate to complain, however no staff actually asked if everything was ok, so can only assume they weren't fussed anyway! Room was spacious enough and chalet style away from main building & very well heated. Toilet hadn't been cleaned, just had cleaner squirted round it, hand towel dirty (although another was provided), bath plughole seemed to be held in with sealant and shower impossible to use as shower head was too heavy for bracket and so pointed down and flooded the floor. Skirting boards dirty, cobwebs, panels missing from vertical blind and I didn't dare investigate what was going on under the bed sheets or pillow cases as, judging by state of bed-base, I may have been put off sleeping in it! A pity really because it could be a good hotel; it's handy for the town centre, but if the basics of good cleaning and maintenance are neglected it only serves to highlight other lacking areas.
