Arranged to have a cup of tea with my Aunty Dorothy who is an octogenarian and her partner Eric who is a nonagenarian. Now before thinking I have the longevity genes, Dorothy is not a blood relative. My Aunty Marion who is my mothers sister reached her early 80s so I live in hope that I will still be able to annoy my darling wife for another 30 years. Derby ...
... car park some distance from the centre of Bakewell but a park is a park. Off we headed to town via the market square, jumping over puddles, to where various stalls were set up. The housing, like most towns in England are picture postcard images. Of course being in Bakewell we thought we should have some Bakewell tart. We found a nice ...

We arrived in Matlock to continuous rain. Not to be deterred we found a car park and strolled around the town looking in various stores. We rummaged through various antique shops, not sure what we are looking for but there is so much choice.
The rain continued so back to the car and off to ...

We walked the town and completed Katie 's 23rd birthday by making our surrogate grandparents an American meal. These are turkey some amazing people. They opened their homes to us, helped us, gave us food, wouldn't let us pay for a thing in that annoying way that grandparents do. They showered us with love and gifts and they will always have a special place in my heart.

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge York Central
My wife and I stayed at this Travelodge for a couple of nights during a short city break to York having used this accomodation a year or so previously.
Satisfactory stay at the York Travelodge
Took advantage of the offer Travelodge are promoting at the moment-£26 a night. Didn't take long to check in and staff seemed friendly and helpful. I have stayed here before and each time I have been woken up by either doors banging or the geese outside. The walls seem thin too, I could hear an entire converstation from the people next door! In addition the room did not seem as clean as it chould be,the carpet was in need of a hoover and there were stains on the bed. The only plus point I can think of, is that it is convienent to town and there is a carpark close by-£7.50 for 24hrs. Overall not bad for £26 but would be reluctant to pay £65 which is normally the price for the room.
Cheap and nice location
I stayed here beginning of January in a family room. The room was basic but ok for a one night stay. It was on the road side and I have to say it wasn't noisy. We did stay on the bank holiday monday after new year so it was quiet with everyone being back at work the next day. Not sure if on a weekend there would be a lot of noise from the pub below. For £26 I would stay there again but I wouldn't stay there if I had to pay full price.
The location was ideal, the car park wasn't far and places like Jorvik and the castle musuem were a 5 min walk away. Ideal when you have children with you.
my friend and I stayed here for three nights at the beginning of december, for a short break to get away. the reception staff were fair, but no great customer service were seen to be honest. Our room smelled really bad and backed onto where the lifts were...and these squeaked all night long!! not a good first impression. the following morning we found that our shower was faulty. we let reception know and they moved our room immediately. there was no lock on the bathroom door on either of the rooms we stayed in. I wouldn't stay here again, we stayed in a couple of the hostels in york and found that these were much better. York is a great place we loved it! i just wouldn't stay at this travelodge again. other travelodges have been fine. i have now been issued with a free night at any travelodge after writing to the area manager: so alls well that ends well.
Basic but Ideally Located
Check in took about 15 minutes as there was a hen party in front of us.
Rooms were clean but very small, we booked on the internet and paid £55, they were advertising rooms at £65 which is quite dear considering how basic it is. Our room was on the road side but we weren't affected by the traffic. Very basic, one small bar of soap, tea making facilities and towels.
The best thing about the hotel is the pub next door, it does amazing breakfasts cheap (£1.99 for full English)....oh and the other best thing is the location, quite central.
The parking is a slight inconvenience but at £7.60 for 24 hours it isn't bad, at least you know your car is sucure over night.
A nicely located hotel - right next to a Wetherspoons pub and within walking distance of all the City Centre attractions. Fine for a short leisure break. A well used hotel and it shows. A bit smelly and worn in places but the rooms were clean and the bathrooms showed signs of over use. Those typical fixed head Travelodge showers are awful but they'll do if you can get a £26 a night promotional rate. Parking is OK, £7.50 for 24 hours at the nearby NCP 1 minute walk down the road on the left. Would stay again at the £26 rates but no way would I pay any more.
My husband and I stayed here on a Sunday night and got a very cheap internet deal - £26 for the room. We had gone to York for a bit of a drinking session on the night time so weren't wanting much in the way of hotel accommodation. The reception staff were friendly, however they were dressed casual and not in company uniform. We checked in around 4.30pm, yet when we walked up to the room, the cleaning staff had yet to get round to clearing room service glasses and plates etc as these were all along the side of the corridor, as were dirty sheets.
With the radio station playing in the foyer on arrival the scene was set. Not classy! And the carpet in the reception was grubby.
We stayed at the Travelodge York Central in June 2005 and enjoyed it. We took advantage of the 26 Pound per night offer and stayed from Sunday to Monday, hence no problem with noisy hen or stag parties. Room was simple but pleasantly furnished, comfortably sized and clean (see pics). Bathroom was in good working order, however hairdryers have to be obtained from reception. Toiletries (apart from a bar of soap) are not supplied. Towels, of course, are provided. The hotel is near a fairly busy street which in some rooms causes a considerable level of noise if you have to leave the window open. Getting to the Minster takes about 12-15 minutes on foot, pedestrian zone about 7-10 minutes. Car park (NCP) is about 200 metres from the hotel. Some on-street parking (pay and display) is available as well. Right next to the hotel is a stylish Wetherspoon pub which may be 'rowdy' at weekends but offers very good value breakfasts and meals any other time; during good weather you can sit on the pub's patio or near the canal. I would surely recommend this hotel to budget travellers who want to explore York. The combination of a low-price room and a Wetherspoon pub is ideal if you want to enjoy yourself without spending the earth. We'll definitely go back some time.
Cheap but not cheerful
I should've known better. Basically you get what you pay for. Staff were willing but very poorly trained. Receptionist seemed to be reciting set phrases -- when I reported a lift fault she replied 'thank you for your call'!
On the first day breakfast was OK if a little cold but the cutlery and plates (underside) were dirty; There were no knives out on the second day and the staff were still setting up at 8.15 on the Saturday morning which meant no glasses, no orange juice etc. I was in a rush and had to leave my breakfast unfinished. The Travelodge is also VERY noisy. I was woken very early both mornings by geese honking after having been kept awake by a gaggle of Scouse hen-nighters outside in the corridor till 4 a.m.
I wouldn't stay there again.
