Getting #travelogical with the Travelodge :)

A little while ago we were lucky enough to be invited to stay with a travelodge of our choice to experience their newly refurbished rooms and to have the ''travelodgical'' experience and I have to say that we really were not disappointed.
When we arrived at the Travelodge Canterbury Chaucer the first thing that struck me was how pretty the building looked. It really fitted in with old, character buildings around it and it was really refreshing to see that the Travelodge had kept a lot of the character and features from the original building. The other bonus was that they had ample parking and we were given a parking permit which meant we didn't have to pay!

When we walked in we were greeted by two very friendly and polite members of staff at reception who explained everything we needed to know. They explained about breakfast, where our room was and said that if we needed anything such as more towels or water then to let them know. I loved that both of the members of staff seemed genuinely happy to help rather than just forced to follow a script as such as it was their jobs. The reception area itself was tidy and clean and it gave a really great first impression.

When we arrived at our room I was honestly shocked. It was huge with a wonderful clean smell that hit you as soon as you walked in. The room had a huge, very comfy king size dream bed (which I will talk more about in a moment), 2 single beds and a travel cot. With all of this in, the room still looked big and had loads of room for bubs to crawl around in which was great! Going back to the bed, I am normally very fussy with beds and mattresses. Hubby is the polar opposite. He will sleep where ever his head hits the pillow but I am a lot more particular. This bed was amazing. I didn't get any backache or have a bad neck at all. I was seriously impressed and am now a huge lover of their Dreambeds!!  The bathroom was also lovely and was immaculately clean! There was a tub in the bathroom which bubba enjoyed having a bath in and a wonderful shower which me and hubs both enjoyed (not together I hasten to add!!!! Hahaha!!). The other part that I loved about this room was that you could still see the character of the building in the decor. It had beautiful coving and plush carpets which fitted in with the 'historical' feel that the hotel had. The whole room just honestly exceeded my expectations. The size, the cleanliness, the decor, the amenities (had tea and coffee, a kettle and a wardrobe with hangers) were all brilliant!

We were up early the next day as we were off to a wildlife park and we got down to breakfast at around 7.30am. The buffet style breakfast was served in a good sized cafe/bar/restaurant area and had a great selection of breakfast items from a full english to fruits and yogurts in their Continental
section. The restaurant also had a small corner with chalk boards, books and toys for their younger guests which I thought was a really lovely touch.

Overall, our stay at the Travelodge Canterbury Chaucher was fantastic. The room, the staff, the facilities all exceeded my expectations. I would not hesitate to stay with them again and would very strongly recommend them be it for a stay with family or a couples night away.

Note: our stay at the Travelodge Canterbury Chaucer was provided to us for review purposes but this has in no way effected my opinion of them. This review is all true and 100% by own thoughts and opinion.
