Travelled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This property currently doesn’t exist - it wasn’t until I arrived and tried to enter the hotel I was told via intercom it is closed. I booked the room months ago when it was the Travelodge hotel and only noticed the name change to Mecure the day before I travelled with my partner and my 6 month old child to the hotel. I called different numbers and no one helped me - especially 138 642 which is apparently the ‘Travelodge hotel’ helpline whoever the lady was on the phone was rude and told me to call Expedia as it was not their problem. Thankfully Expedia customer service went above and beyond and connected me to a lovely lady named Mara from the Mecure who organised me a room at the Novotel in Newcastle. Had it not been for them I’d have had to do the 2 hour drive home. I will never book a hotel room moving forward without calling the hotel first and I’d never book a room at the Travelodge again. Thank you Expedia and Mara for your help.

Check in was fast and efficient. Staff were professional. Room felt old, cupboards chipped, curtains had stains on them and bathroom looked like it had seen better days. Clean enough, with a bottle of disinfectant for me to clean with. Street noise at night was horrendous, yelling, screaming, drag racing and music from cars stopped at lights floated straight into room. Room service options limited. Two pizzas and two toasted panini. Convenient location but no character. Couldn’t wait to leave.
