I was down in Torquay on a business trip, and had planned to do the normal Travelodge experience (i.e. you know what you're getting - not much!). I'm thoroughly glad I took the time to check out the opposition though.
The owners were really friendly and didn't mind the obscenely late hour I turned up. The room was immaculate, with a good shower, an excellent TV and an extremely comfy bed. The breakfast was superb (full English - nice!) and the overall approach was irreproachable.
It's too easy when travelling on business to plump for the obvious option of the chain. Take a moment to pause though; for the same price (or cheaper) you can get friendliness, better facilities and a cracking breakfast.
Bit of a no-brainer really!
