A Travelodgical Stay At Travelodge City Road

Recently on my visit to BritMums, the biggest blogging event on a bloggers calendar I was offered a room in Travelodge to save me having to travel home and then back again the next morning. I have written a post here about the hotel on the first day, and here is my second post describing the atmosphere, the friendliness of the staff and the breakfast. my first post is here.
computers are available for everyone

We were in a room on the 4th floor, but if your staying there with a family like I was, then its perfectly safe. We all know how adventourous children can be and if you take your eyes of your child, they can be found doing something naughty. Well these rooms are perfectly safe for them to be in. The windows have window locks so you can only open them a little way. There is a kettle in the room but it is on a side unit, pushed to the back out of the reach of a child and it has a short lead to avoid accidents.
The King size bed is one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in and having to get up and go to breakfast was almost a chore. I could of stayed in bed all day. There were only sheets on the bed as the hotel is very warm, but there was an optional duvet in the wardrobe.

We did finally get out of bed to go for breakfast and we the staff had a bit of difficulty finding our breakfast booking, but the hotel was very very busy with Bloggers going to BritMums. Once we were allowed into the breakfast room, we were not disappointed with the choice of breakfast. There is a good old fashioned fry up or a choice of continental produce, or both.



The breakfast can be booked with the room or added once you arrive at the hotel for the cost of £7.65 and a child eats free with every adult.

Check out is at 12 noon, but we paid £10 to secure a late check out. This meant we were able to explore London for the day and not have to return until 2pm. You can add this option when booking online or you can book it on the day.

The staff at Travelodge City Road were very helpful, they were friendly towards Tilly which is extremely important because I want my child to feel welcome when she stay somewhere. I have stayed places in the past and felt pressured to keep children quiet. The staff here interacted with Tilly, making sure she didn't need anything. If there was anything we needed from the reception they were on hand to help us out and they were really helpful with the local area and had a folder of things to do in London.

This year Travelodge turns 30 and to celebrate they are offering rooms from £35 or less this summer, this can make for a cheap holiday this year. To make a booking pop over to www.travelodge.co.uk.

We loved this hotel and it was very clean, it was nicely decorated and the bed so so comfortable. The staff couldn't have been faulted for anything and they were there if we needed anything. We would definitely stay there again if we were staying in London. The bus stop outside the hotel makes it easy to hop on a bus to all parts of London.
