Room not cleaned, room smelled damp, sofa bed mattress blood stains, main bed too hard and uncomfortable, carpet stains, wall stains, sink in bathroom unsuitable because water kept splashing out the sides and running everywhere. Inadequate supply of towels although these were changed daily. Hair dryer kept shorting out. Inadequate window coverings. Shower not too bad kept warm however flow was reduced at times of demand but didnt affect the warmth. Nice choice of food outlets and a supermarket which doesn't charge service station prices. Route into the hotel was strange over the bridge and looked a bit dilapidated.

good points - beds comfy.. large flat screen tv. very good shower. tea/coffee facility room for improvements - could have a phone near the entrance for communicating with reception (as they are based in another building).. Even though we booked a family room (for 4) towels and tea/coffee facilities were only catering for 2.(had to ask to accommodate). room cleanliness was just ok..(dusty window ledge tired looking carpets.

The rooms were spacious and have been updated since our last visit. The bathroom has improved and the large shower was lovely. Was disappointed with the cleanliness of the duvet used on the children’s bed as partway through the night the duvet cover had come off and the duvet had numerous blood stains on both sides. These stains would of been easily visible by the housekeeper who had placed the white duvet cover over the top. This did spoil our experience as both my children had been in close contact with the blood stains during the night This was reported on departure and the staff member just said sorry! I would use the lodge again as excellent value for money for a family of four, but will be checking the duvets prior to going to bed!

Ideal location for Manchester

Pros: Ideally located for visiting Manchester and the north west
Cons: I am sure any improvement would put up the cost thereby loosing what they have achieved.
Location: Directions should include the fact this lodge is accessible from both motorway carriageways
Very much a case of getting what you pay for, if you expect 5 star luxury you won't get it paying under £30 per night! If you want a clean, warm room then this is the place for you!

Really really strong smell of damp.

Awful hotel that Travelodge got shot of. Smell of damp is strong and no doubt bad for health.
