Myself and two friends, Tony & Jonathan (known mainly as Gegg) set off from Newcastle after finishing work on the train to Manchester Airport for the night before the full travel day to Budapest for our first ever F1 weekend.
I was so stupidly excited I pretty much ran from work to the station to meet the guys, who had already started …
4th May 2008: Milovaig - Armadale: We have requested our breakfast to be at 7.30am today as we have a long day planned to get back to Inverness. We have booked our ferry from Armadale to get to Mallaig on the mainland. From there, we will take the famous "Road to the Isles" (from the opposite direction of Fort William). However, after rushing all …
... The town adopted this long name to promote tourism and it's in the Guinness Book of Records as being the place with the longest name in Great Britain. We had lunch there. There was a little wool shop across the street. I went in but didn't stay long: not much in the way of yarn (mostly acrylics) and it smelled really bad! The proprietor was speaking to a customer in Welsh. We then travelled through ...
This morning started with a 6:30 taxi ride to to the Ulyses IRISH FERRY in Dublin. We boarded after going security with our luggage and went up to the Club where we had free snacks for our 3 hour voyage to Holy Rod in Wales. I didn't get sea sick but Iayed down most of the trip. As you am see from pics it was not at all crowded. We landed about 11:30 and a bus drove us to the station to get a train to Liverpool . We only had to wait about 15 min. We rode it about a hour ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Yes it's not the most beautiful of places to stay, but if your just interested in a few hours kip before an early morning flight then you can't really go wrong at this price! £6 each- bargain. Had to go and ask for extra towel, tea and mug at reception but got them straight away so no bother.

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Manchester Airport Hotel
Good But No Air Conditioning
The room was clean, the people at the desk were courteous and the restaurant was fine. However, it was a very hot day when I arrived and to my amazement, the room had no air conditioning. It didn't have a fan either and the window could only be opened about six inches. The temperature in the room was very uncomfortable. So overall I would say it is a good value unless it is a hot day.
I Have to Disagree - Not That Good
Travelodge Manchester Airport is relatively new. One would therefore expect it to be clean and pleasant. What I didn't expect was the lack of amenities: no in-room phone and no pay phone anywhere on the premises; a 3 pound charge for the van service to the airport; no cable tv; no toiletries beyond a cheap sliver of soap. All for 50 pounds! The rooms are constructed on the cheap so much so that I suspect the hotel will be a shabby place to stay within a very short time. Alas, there are not many alternatives in this price range.
Ideal stay for an early flight
Check was quick and efficient. Room was clean and comfortable with everything we needed for an overnight stay.
As we had an early flight we did not want to worry about going out for something to eat so we had a drink and some food in the bar, we were really impressed with the food and the portions were huge, much better than expected. The staff were friendly and the service was good.
We could have left our car at the hotel and paid the rate there however we had booked the shuttle park which was only a very short drive away, a bus then takes you from the shuttle park to the terminals.
We would definitely stay here again.
Fairly new hotel so although rooms are the fairly basic Travelodge standard they are bright, clean and comfortable. We booked a Saver room at £26, so at £13pp it was amazing value. The hotel is in a great location, only 5 mins by taxi to the airport and a short walk to the local pub. When we arrived (mid afternoon) we were the only people in the hotel bar so it wasn't exactly atmospheric! I had heard there was a nearby pub so asked staff for directions and the nearby 'Romper' pub was v easy to find, just 5 mins walk away. It's an old style pub and well worth the walk as the food is excelllent.
What a bargain 10.00 on the website as a supersaver room.
Stayed there for the night before we flew off to Spain and checked in at 7pm then out at 4am. Only catch was we had to pay 5.00 to park our car there.
The location is perfect nearly at the end of the runway and only took us 5 mins in the car to get to the airport.
This travelodge is almost brand new and it showed as the rooms were lovely and very new/clean with nice big bathroom, 2 beds and a bed/settee all nice and comfy.
If you can book inadvance it's a bargain
Stayed one night in this new hotel after a long travel day. Need a car or taxi to get there, but only about 5-10 minutes' drive from Terminal. Staff was helpful and check in was fast. Hotel was completely booked for the night. Rooms are typical Travelodge - nice comfortable beds, but no extras. If you just want a place to sleep and shower, this is it! I think the hotel has a restaurant, but we did not use it. Definitely recommend it.
We stayed here a day before a flight, as I'm from Manchester we just stayed here as the room was a £10 bargin due to the travelodge special offer.
Stayed overnight here before flying off to the States early the next day. Took a taxi from the airport, which was £5 and took 5 minutes. It took a few minutes for the car park barrier to open, so as we only had hand luggage hopped out of the cab at the barrier. Check-in was quick, friendly and efficient. Reception area very spacious with a few seats and vending machines. Our room as a family room with kingsize bed and sofa. Bed was quite comfortable but did have the 'roll together' factor - as I've found do all Travelodges! The corridors smelt new - carpets etc and the whole hotel was spotless.
Needing to be in Manchester (UK) for two nights, I noted that the Travel Lodge were doing a £26 special. Now Travel Lodge are notoriously basic, utilitarian to a fault and usually require a trip to the adjacent Happy Chef for breakfast. WOW !!!! What a surprise. This is as near to a normal hotel as possible with real live receptionists and the adjacent bistro/supper bar had the most incredibly helpful staff.
Good value for money
We stayed at the Travelodge in December for one night to save the hassle of travelling to the airport in the morning from Leeds. Total cost was £10 for room (bargain price), £5 for taxi there from Manchester Airport rail station then £6 from hotel to terminal 1 - so £21 altogether!
We ate in the restaurant at night - food was good and good service at restaurant, bar and front desk. Rooms like any other travelodge but fine for one night.
The only thing I would say is if you are getting to the airport by public transport don't bother turning up any earlier than early evening as there isn't really anything to do except drink and eat as the location is a fair trek from the airport, but I'll use it again, especially if I can get the £10 rate!
