Each room offers a comfortable setting with en-suite bathroom, luxury king size bed, colour TV with pay on demand movies, Internet services and free tea and coffee making facilities. Free onsite car-parking is provided for guests.

Travelodge is always the smart choice whether staying for business, leisure or when you have family and friends visiting. Our room rates start from just £26, which is fantastic value for a family of two adults and two children staying in a family room."
