Budget hotel chain Travelodge recently launched an extensive refurbishment programme to its bedrooms, giving its city locations a stylish new look.
I was fortunate enough to be offered the chance to see the newly refurbished rooms at the Travelodge Bath Central, ideally positioned in the city and within walking distance of the Christmas market.
Driving into the city centre was relatively easy and once we found a place to park we made the short walk to where we would be staying.
Although the Travelodge itself did not have a car park of its own, it was good to be able to see a short bit of Bath and we were only walking less than five minutes before we reached our destination.
The city is steeped in history and the Travelodge Bath Central is no different. The grand Georgian building was in a great position for visitors, with a cosy restaurant/cafe opposite and several restaurants nearby. After being welcomed by a polite member of staff at reception, we went up to our room.
The room was what every person would enjoy; a spacious retreat with good facilities including a TV and kettle with tea and coffee.
The upgraded new luxury king size bed, The Travelodge Dreamer, is deemed in the industry as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of beds and produced by royal warrant holders Sleepeezee Ltd.
It boasts a 952 individual pocket sprung mattress. Each individual spring is designed to follow the natural contour of an individual’s body in order to provide the correct amount of support and comfort to ensure they receive a good quality night’s sleep.
Other additions to the new room include a stylish white contemporary en-suite bathroom with a power shower, stain and water resistant carpet, a larger desk area, new reading lights and a phone charging socket built into the bed frame.
The bed was very comfortable but it was the room view which was a real bonus, looking out onto Bath Abbey and the countryside beyond.
Despite having a less than anticipated night’s sleep on the first night (owing to the fire alarm ringing out at 2am), it was a really comfortable room.
After spending the day exploring the Christmas Market near the abbey, we then headed out to grab a bite to eat.
The location of the hotel was great and we were spoilt for choice on the amount of restaurants nearby.
Once walking through Royal Avenue Park and then back into the city centre and along the River Avon, it was clear that this hotel is a perfect retreat for those visiting this great city.
Travelodge stays are ideal for those wanting a city break without breaking the bank balance, whether you’re exploring the tourist attractions as a couple or partying with friends.
Bath is one of those English cities everyone needs to visit. I had a great and relaxing time visiting the city, and would recommend the Travelodge Bath Central for anyone wanting a stay that is both convenient and easily priced.
