... and your family in shape. Many people let their savings accumulate over years to find a way to take part in commodious adventure vacations. Luckily usually there are some that don't require a life time of saving. These are some excellent plans for up coming trip. Dog sledding is a great adventure! You most likely guess that going canine ...

again just for the shopping!! We went to the Go Falafel store and grabbed some
takeaway falafel and salads for after game dinner that night. We couldn’t help ourselves
though and stopped in the gardens to have a few of the falafel while they were
still hot! They were AMAZING!!! The best falafel we’ve had since arriving in
the UK – real falafel!!!!

Shockingly, a second entry to this thing. Mainly as I'm bored at the airport. Rules of the airport in full force... having a pint. Pondering a family member that we lost at the weekend, keith (my cousin lizzies husband) left us suddenly on saturday. Brilliant man who ...
... around in Manchester. We mostly just walked around the main sights, ended up finding ourselves in the Gay village as we walked along the canal and onwards to ChinaTown. The streets were bare, but you could tell they all saw a good time the night before. The rest of the day we really just strolled. I loved exploring the back streets as we found an abundance of street art, most of which was by a new fav called TankPetrol.

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Manchester Central
We stayed here between Christmas and New Year as travelodge were offering rooms for £10 per night.
What more could you ask for? Bang in the middle of the city, cheap room (£45 family) with lots of space, and very helpful staff... even following us to the room to show us how to use the tv ! ...
Great place to stay if you fancy a night in Manchester - it is basic, but after a night out, all you really need is a clean place to sleep it off... this fits the bill perfectly.
We had booked a room some five weeks before our stay on the Travelodge web site. The room was reserved using a credit card. However, when we arrived at 8pm the reception was busy and we were running late for a party. We decided that we would check in later as we had already paid for the room. On checking in we were told that there were no rooms left. I pointed out that we had already paid and the receptionist said they had oversold 15 rooms for that night.(other guests were arriving anfd were told the same thing). After 90 mins we got into our room..which had suddenly become available.. the other guests who were knocked back were offered refunds or taxis to other hotels. I felt sorry for the reception staff who were put into an impossible position by their company overbooking the hotel and they should be congratulated for their diplomatic skills.
I stayed in the Manchester Central Travelodge last night, with my husband & 2 teenage sons. It is definately much improved, since the last time I stayed there 12 months ago. It has been refurbished & the reception/bar area is now bright, clean & spacious. There were 3 receptionists, who were fast & pleasant in dealing with a long queue of guests checking in. - Rather than one, understandable, harrassed young girl, last year. The room was large and spacious. Last year, the room I stayed in was badly in need of an upgrade, especially in the bathroom, where the grouting was very grimey - but very clean this time. Please be aware that Manchester is an extremely vibrant, dinamic city & the downside of this is that there is no respite from the noise of traffic from any of the city centre hotels. Weigh this up, however, from the fact that this hotel is minutes away from the best shopping in Europe, the coolest bars, including the "Living Room" & a great Italian Restaurant next door but one, & this hotel is an excellent choice. This was enhanced only by the fact that I only paid £26 for a family room.
My experience with the travel lodge was not pleasant.
Its pretty basic but i guess thats why it's so cheap.
The staff there are horrible! Especially one woman who gave us the 3rd degree when we asked for more pillows, accusing us of having other people in our room, more than allocated.
Horrible. Don't go there.
I stayed for one night at the Travelodge, Blackfriars Street, Deansgate. The first issue was that I went to book it at 14.55 and was told that I had to wait until 15.00. Myself and about 30 other guests were crammed into the very hot reception, standing, waiting until it hit 15.00 exactly and booked us in. This 'jobsworth' attitude did not start the day well.
I was not happy with this hotel at all. First they did not supply any soap, face cloths or tissues in the rooms. Second, the hallways in the morning were littered after the evening I guess. The lift was also dirty. The worst was the phone system. You could only use a credit card to make a call and at first it would not accept mine. The font desk told me that they have problems with America credit cards! I later got accepted only to find that my pre- paid phone card was not a free call. You could only buy full meals at the hotel, no just a coffee or a snack and everything was pay ahead. I can now see why. I only see 3 reviews on this board and they are good reviews I wonder if mine will be posted? As speaking to people at the Hotel there were a lot of unsatisfied customers.
I stayed at this Manchester central Travelodge on two occasions in June 2005. The first I stayed for one night and had a 25 pounds room deal I found online. Two friends also had the same deal, stayed in seperate rooms, and the interesting thing was, we each had a noticebale fault in our rooms. For me, the bathroom would not close, for my friend the shaver was broken and the radiator failed to work in my other friends room. So, I think that any rooms they give out for this price will have some kind of fault. That is fine though if you are willing to have the cheaper price in return. We had breakfast the next morning and it was terrible -nothing like as shown in the breakfast brochure (for example, it showed fried eggs, yet only scrambled eggs were on offer, and it was all badly cooked).
Basic but cheap
OK, so for ten pounds a night, you don't expect much (a truly amazing internet special offer price - even the receptionist was surprised). The location's good, if you want to be in the centre of Manchester. The hotel itself is utterly charmless; our room was large and basic, albeit not quite as clean as it might have been (stained cover on the sofa).
Gotta love Britain. This place is reasobale value until the negative sides kick in. You can't check in until 3pm - no negotiation and then they charge £2 to leave a suitcase there until the room is 'ready'. And this is at 1pm. Plus the charge 25p per minute for INCOMING calls. Genius. The world's most complicated system to make outgoing calls as well. The rooms are characterless but very clean and the location is central but a good 15 minute walk from either Victoria Station or Picadilly.
