Stay Clear....... !!!!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 28, 2010

I am not normally one to write a review, in fact I'm very shy when it comes to complaining however, my recent experience at the Travelodge, Blackfriars Street has been such a bad experience I thought I had better warn other people.

I booked this hotel for 6 couples who were having an early Xmas break together in Manchester. When checking in there was total dis-interest from the reception staff who's attitude was clearly that they would rather be somewhere else ( and total chaos) !!

Parking was an absolute joke, the pay machine gave details how you could pay by credit card however, after following the voice activated system it then asked for the bay number where you were parked. Could I find a bay number (or any bay numbers), not a chance !! I gave up and went to reception but they didn't have a clue what I was talking about (and it is their car park !!!). The saving grace was that they were able to give me change for the parking machine, after 10 minutes of scratting around for the change !!

What was shocking was seeing a lady guest bringing a very dirty and stained duvet down to recpetion only to be handed a replacement which she had to carry back to her room. It was clear from the attitude of the reception staff that this was a regular occurance !! I was amazed, surely the staff should have been apologising and getting one of the staff to take the duvet to the room rather than the guest.

Not a moment later another guest apperared at reception saying that there was no duvet and pillow in their room. Once again, rather than the receptionist make arrangements for the bedding to be taken to the room a staff member handed over bedding over the Reception Desk !! What a joke !!!

The room was sparce and the hotel generally grubby and in desparate need for a refurbishment.
Now I know your saying, well it is a bargain basement hotel chain however, at £75 per night, there is absolutley no excuse for the state of the hotel and attitude of the staff.

Will I stay there again, not a chance !!! STAY CLEAR... you have been warned !!!

Unique Quality: Handy for shopping, the only saving grace !!!

Directions: Central

Situated on Blackfriars St this handy Travel Lodge is great for city centre breaks. Conveniently located just off Deansgate and within easy walking from most of the city centres attractions and an Ideal place to stay for any VT meets in Town like the Christmas markets meet.

Like with any Travelodge the earlier you book the cheaper it is.

If this one is full try Manchester Ancoats which is also Conveniently located

(Carparking is charged and could be expensive, check website for details)

Unique Quality: To keep prices low they do not provide shower gels and toiletries but Travelodge’s are comfortable and spacious.

Prices are for the room not per person and you can get 3 people in a family room

There is nothing much too special about the Travelodge. It is easy to point out the bad things about it;
there is an awful view from your window.
although clean, it is a bit grubby,
breakfasts are very basic but expensive
but it is just a reasonalby priced (£40 room only) place to get your head down if you are staying in Manchester over night.

Unique Quality: I chose the hotel as it was very close to the MEN arena (where I was waching a Queen concert)
Rooms equiped with tv and kettle (with couple of tea bags, tubs milk etc)
