stayed here for 2 nights , didn't have to much cash at the time so it was a perfect price for a cheap get away , only cost around £29 per night for a room . There isn't any thrills with this hotel but it did have a big food area and a bar which is nice. Friendly staff and the location was great , not to far from the city centre and station.
Travelodges have certainly come in handy for me in the past, when I was doing the old open days before picking my university, my Mum and I stayed in these in each city as they were the cheapest and it was a name we knew and trusted. Of course it's no 5 star experience and I don't think it's meant to be either. But for a clean simple bed, complimentary UHT milk cartons and coffee sachets and some unlabeled soap in the shower room - this company is a winner!
My most recent experience of this Travelodge though is with their conference rooms; I was booked on to a training course that was held here. My work friends and I went on in and made our way past the open doored kitchen (bizarre, I know), lounge and bar area, the toilets and a bunch of guest rooms. After commenting on how strange a location it was for a conference room we went in.
The room was pretty spacious, with wheelchair access (ramped), big bright windows and white walls and we were provided with an OHP. Complimentary teas, coffees and biscuits were provided and overall it was a fairly decent place to go for a training session. I imagine the price for the room hire here was vastly less than some of the other conferencing centres dotted around Leeds and it was really easy to get to being in the city centre. However, you get what you pay for, and in the same way that the overnight stay here won't have you wowed, neither will the conference rooms.
Simple, clean and cheap. That's it!
Think back to the start of 2009 when it snowed...that's when I stayed here. Working in Leeds but living in Huddersfield, I had to be in Leeds for a 6am shift the day after a shift finishing at 9pm. Boyfriend was also in a similar situation, and with my car still buried under what felt like a foot of snow, we decided to just play it safe and book a hotel for the night instead. It was an ideal location for us both and they didn't mind that we'd brought a take out Nando's in with us! The room was quite small with a double bed, desk and chair and a small bathroom. Unfortunately for us, we were put in a room at the back of the hotel and there was a gig going on at nearby Rio's which kept me awake for most of the night (not the other half though, he'd sleep through an earthquake if he could!). Checking in and out was fast and simple and the staff were friendly too.
