Booking I booked on the Internet at www.travelodge.co.uk. This is very quick and easy. Some areas have lots of Travelodges, so its best to type in the postcode on the front page and a list of the nearest 5 Travelodges are given. Be careful, this is "as the crow flies" so check on a map the nearest really is the nearest by road. The room cost £30 per night, winter special rate. Breakfast not included. Finding the Travelodge Travelodge provide a very clear map in their directory (order one online) or you can print out from the site. In this case the Travelodge is located approximately 4 miles south of Shrewsbury at the A5/A49 roundabout. Parking is plentiful and free. Checking in I thought I had paid online but giving credit card details only reserves the room. Booking in and paying (cash, visa, switch) took less than 5 minutes. Facilities Standard Travelodge room with king size bed and sofa bed. There is a small amount of hanging space, extra quilt, pillows and spare sheet (to make up the sofa bed). Shower over bath is a "self-mixer" (the newer Travelodges have temperature controlled showers). Tea tray and kettle in the room, with extra supplies available for free (when reception is open). Make sure you arrive prepared with toiletries etc, these can be bought from reception but are expensive and choice is limited. Nearby Next door is a Little Chef with pizza and Harry Ramsden takeaway. Takeaway is very good value, especially since I was given a 20% Travelodge customer discount. Opening hours vary. There is also a Dobies garden centre which has a market style food area. Two minutes walk brings you to a petrol station. Hints and Tips Within five minutes drive is a Sainsburys which opens at 7am, idea for buying cereal and milk (from roundabout take exit towards Shrewsbury, superstore signposted). This is also the park and ride into Shrewsbury.
