Travellodge London Tower Bridge Review

Posted by on Sunday, April 28, 2013 Under: Hotel Reviews
As far as location versus cost in the city of London, this hotel is probably the best I have experienced, it sits a 2 minute walk from Tower Hill tube station and Tower Gateway DLR station, not to mention 2 of the biggest attractions in the capital, The Tower of London and Tower Bridge which are a mere 5 minute walk. 

As you would expect from a budget hotel chain the rooms are incredibly cheap considering the location, so if you're prepared to sacrifice a few creature comforts then it's the perfect place for you. 

I travelled down to London for the London Marathon so I wanted a place that would be clean and nicely furnished in order to prepare and recover! Luckily the Travel Lodge is both of those things, however, you do get what you pay for and the rooms are extremely basic with a small bathroom and shower. There is a television in each room with all main British TV channels and a desk with a plastic chair. 

Breakfast was served until 11am every morning which is great news if you fancy a lie-in and they were good enough to open at 6.30am on the Sunday morning for all marathon runners. There is a bar on the ground floor serving food and drinks, however there aren't many couches or comfortable seats so your best bet is to venture out and the area around Tower Hill station has plenty of pubs and restaurants, including a German Bier Keller!

My only criticism of the Travel lodge tower bridge is that the staff weren't very helpful and found it hard to crack a smile when on reception. In addition we couldn't store our bags when checking out, as our train home was departing at 9pm we had to walk all the way to Liverpool Street Station and pay to keep out bags in left luggage, again you get what you pay for I guess. 

Location 9/10
Rooms 6/10
Staff 4/10
