Travelodge London Kew Bridge

I've recently discovered that there are certain activities that will guarantee you strange looks. One of them is listening to Peter Kay on your iPod whilst travelling on the Tube. Laughing hysterically to yourself is not conducive to being considered "normal". That said, the guy next to me was going through the free London newspaper tearing out ( …
... and had a much appreciated shower and change. I'd had a small toiletries blowout, but thanks to packing mostly in plastic bags, only one pair of jeans got collected in the fallout. Betadine also splashed out of its bottle, but was luckily well confined in its zip lock bag. After refreshing, Chez and Iain very kindly gave us a great tour of Greenwich. We walked through the pack to see the ...
Where do I begin... Well we'll start with this morning. I woke up at the crack of dawn. And when I mean the crack I mean the crack! 6am! Found it hard to fall back asleep but seemed to get to sleep for a few more hours. We got up at about 8:30, got ready and headed towards The London Eye. We got some healthy breakfast at Pod (pod is a healthy food chain... Was pretty tasty) I got the chance to check some Facebook and Viber call Dan, the poor guy ...
... number of towers linked with high walls like castles) we then queued inside for another hour to see the Crown Jewels. They are locked in a vault and are priceless. So many to see it takes about half an hour to get through there. But, simply amazing. They were absolutely beautiful. Regrettably, like most Palaces, Abbeys etc photos are not permitted. To think that William the Conquerer commenced building the tower in 1066. It must cover about 30 acres at ...
... of place, and I enjoyed the atmosphere. It was pretty much how I expected a casino to be, including the alcohol prices (5 pounds per brew). What I wasn't sure about however, was whether or not I would enjoy gambling. My dad told me that I would probably dislike it, since I can't stand losing money, but I wanted to try it anyway. Aside from Las Vegas, London isn't too bad of a place to gamble for the first time.

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge London Kew Bridge
This is a fairly new Travelodge and I was very, very pleased with it. This was my first ever stay in a Travelodge and I was really pleasantly surprised, I usually stay in 3 or 4 star hotels which often give you a room half the size of this one. For the fantastic bargain of £10.00 for one night I had a very comfortable double bed, a full bathroom, a sofa, a writing desk, extra pillows and extra duvet in the room, a TV with regular channels plus pay movies and in a very good location to boot. Also included free was a kettle with coffee (normal & decaf), tea, sugar and milk, this is something that often isn't supplied in so-called 4 star hotels these days.
Very basic accommodation
The room was only £26 for a Saturday night but we had to plead for 2 pillows each and they were taken from another room. Room was not clean, toilet stained and I am not sure what was in the bath drain as the water was very slow to drain. Carpet full of hairs(not ours) and the bed was one of the worst we have ever slept in. Still the location is excellent for Kew.
Fantastic hotel! Book rooms on the travelodge website for rooms as low as £10! Perfect location for visiting London. Stayed there on numerous occaisions and will definetley return. Friendly staff, clean, happy...
Stayed for four nights at this Travelodge. Not much more to add to my previous review - everything was much the same. My only complaint was so very rowdy guests decided to make a lot of noise on the Saturday night. There was no way to ring reception from your room phone that I could see, and with a gang of very young, drunk guys running up and down the corridor with bottles of alcohol, I was not comfortable leaving my room to go to reception to complain.
I have just returned from a two night stay at the Travelodge kew bridge. We were delighted with the hotel and thought it was fantastic value for money. Ideal if you want to bring kids to London and not break the bank.
We stayed at this Travelodge on 3rd July 2005, the day after Live8.
DO note stay here!!!!
My wife and had a horrible 4 night stay here last week.
Upon arrival, the staff was surly and rude, there were no towels in the room, there was a kettly base, but no kettle and the TV was broken. Asking for towels was a huge issue for the rude staff, and I had to fix the TV myself as they said they were too busy. They could not find a kettle, or were too lazy to do so.
The icing on the cake was when the we were woken up at 3:30am our last night there by a family who had been issued a key to our room, as the Travelodge staff had somehow forgotten we were staying there. Upon confronting the front desk about this, they found it quite funny. We had to call the head office to have our money refunded.
Overall, a disgraceful hotel and no one should stay here!
I had slated the Travelodge at Gatwick, so in fairness I should say this one is excellent. Clean, well furnished and outstanding value [for London] at £45 per night with a £5 parking charge (although we could have parked free in the adjacent street, the car park was very secure). It's a very short drive to the A4, M4 and North/South Circular.
For visitors with car
As with most of the Travelodge chain, totally adequate accomodation at reasonable cost. If you have a car, its not too difficult to find all day parking near South Ealing tube station which is on the Piccadilly Line.
Very good no-frills hotel
This is a typical no-frills hotel, clean, decent size, TV and a bonus is a free car park. The surrounding area is pleasant enough for London, safe but few eating places. Handy for the 20 minute train journey into London.
Ideal if you don't plan on staying in your hotel all day.
