Travelodge at East Grinstead and Waterloo

Just eight miles from Gatwick Airport and sitting by some of the prettiest countryside in Sussex, the East Grinstead Travelodge has opened. It is the company’s 568th hotel, with 20 more to come this year.

Rooms feature the company’s signature luxurious king-size Travelodge Dreamer bed which sits within a mood-lighting surround and has three-pin and USB charging points on both sides. Also featured are LED ceiling lighting, providing a warm ambiance, a "comfort cooling" system, 32in freeview TV, wi-fi and free in-room tea and coffee making facilities.
Travelodge UK development director Tony O’Brien said: “Over the past three decades, Travelodge has become famous across the country for offering unbeatable value and making travel affordable for everyone, which has helped attract more business and leisure travellers to the area.”

BTN stayed at the Waterloo Travelodge for AOA (see this issue). The large SuperRoom offered a Lavazza capsule coffee machine, Hansgröhe Raindance shower, a choice of firm or soft hypoallergenic pillows, hairdryer, iron and ironing board. At just £8.95, the unlimited breakfast was very good value, the bar and social area open 24hr.

Grumbles? Yes – 30min of wi-fi should be unlimited, a "soft" closing for the WC is needed, and in the shower the shabby plastic curtain should be replaced by glass.
