HOTEL of the week; TRAVELODGE LONDON WATERLOO.
WHERE AND WHY
A five-minute walk south of the railway station and just behind the Old Vic Theatre, this grand old building has been recently renovated and is usually buzzing with life. Guests from all over the world want a clean and comfortable place to stay that makes their holiday or business cash go further. With rooms from PS19 they won't be disappointed. This was our second Travelodge stay within a few weeks and we came away from both hotels impressed by the helpful staff and the deep, restful comfort of the beds. At this price it's no-frills of course. But rooms have been upgraded to a swish new design featuring king-size beds and restful decor. Many have slide-out "truckle" beds that help families save money by staying in one room. And in Waterloo our windows ran the length of the room, filling it with light.
ON THE MENU
A big choice of burgers and stuffed-crust pizzas, plus other options like lamb shank and roast chicken in a piri-piri sauce. Book online for a meal deal offering two courses plus drink for PS9.95. The breakfast buffet costs PS7.65pp (PS1 less if you book online) and the variety and quality cannot be faulted. Two under-15s eat free for each paying adult.
WHILE YOU'RE THERE: Take a stroll in the littleknown haven of Waterloo Millennium Green. Carry on walking and you're on the Thames riverbank with the London Eye and the whole South Bank arts complex as your playground. If you plan an outing to the Old Vic (currently showing Sweet Bird of Youth starring Kim Cattrall) there's no handier place to stay.
WAKE-UP CALL: Rooms from just PS19 if you plan ahead. Book online for best rates. www.travelodge.co.uk, 08719 848484
