A couple of weeks ago we were very kindly invited to visit the new Travelodge in Weston-Super-Mare, North Somerset. We love little family trips away and so jumped at the opportunity. It’s a two and a half hour car ride from us which isn’t too bad. Daisy slept most of the way and when she was awake she sat there happily eating her ‘crispies’. (Crisps). When we walked into the hotel we were welcomed by the manager, Caroline, she was very friendly and made us feel right at home. The first thing we noticed was how nice the hotel smelt – not only was it absolutely spotless but it had the most amazing ‘new’ smell. The hotel had only been open 6 days when we arrived. The ‘new’ smell never faded, which was perfect. I wish my home would constantly smell new – haha.
We spent the first day down at the beach just wandering around. That’s one of the best things about traveling to a new part of the country, just simply wandering without a motive. I have to admit that Weston-super-mare wasn’t particularly my cup of tea, that’s not to say that it wasn’t nice, but it just wasn’t the kind of place that I like to stay. However the hotel itself was perfect and situated a short distance away from the main town and beach. When we got back to our room we relaxed for a little while and after going to leave, we noticed our door wasn’t locking. We let Caroline know and she sincerely apologised and helped us move rooms after offering us a complimentary drink. She was absolutely great with Daisy, talking away and getting her to help her out here and there with little duties. She made us feel very welcome, along with the other staff members, and made our stay more enjoyable. It’s always nice to have friendly staff! We then went out for dinner (well I say we went out for dinner but we just went through a good ol’ McDonalds drive thru) Daisy was tired and we just wanted to get her to bed, so we wanted something quick and easy.
The second day we did pretty much the same, wandered around Weston-super-mare followed by a nice meal out at the local restaurant pub, The landing Flight, just opposite the Travelodge. The food was amazing and there’s a lovely little pub garden with a playground for the children. I love these photos of Daisy as the sun was setting and the famous ‘golden hour’ was making it’s slight appearance. I had to tear her away from the slide so that we could get back to the room in time for Hollyoaks on E4+1 😉 Living the life, right?! We did start the day with a fantastic breakfast in the on-site restaurant. You can pick between an unlimited lighter breakfast for £5.75 or a unlimited full breakfast for £7.95. Definitely worth it and they start serving from 7am, perfect for those troublesome early rising toddlers. We then spent the next day wandering around Bath, which is a handy 55 minutes away. (I’m going to do a separate post about that soon).
We LOVED our stay at Travelodge! Thanks for having us.
