On the way back from our short city break to Brussels, we decided to stay an extra night in London, as we love any excuse to have some free time in one of our favourite cities although accommodation can be pricey in the Capital. We wanted something near St Pancreas as we were arriving into London around 6:00pm and did not want to be trekking across the city centre with loads of bags and a tired toddler so the newly renovated Travelodge Euston which is in walking distance from the Eurostar terminals seemed like a good option.
The last time we stayed at a Travelodge was when Mr A was around a year and half years old on a short break in Bath, the Travelodge was housed in a beautiful old building and even though our stay was very comfortable the rooms could of done with a bit of a refurbishment so we were really keen to see what the new-look London Euston Travelodge would be like.
As soon as we opened the door to our room we were greeted with a clean and stylish room, with a king sized dreamer bed, four plump pillows for extra comfort and small seating area with tea and coffee making facilities plus an equally simply but chic shower room. The refurbishments have really brought Travelodge back into the 21st century and has perfectly combined budget travel with comfort and style.
With hotels such as Travelodge you often get what you see but we were really pleasantly surprised with all the bonus features such as a flat screen TV, hand, face and shower gel, fresh white towels, 24 hours for Wifi in your room for only £3, plus kids go free and the reception staff were also very friendly and helpful.

We decided to try the breakfast which was well stocked and had a lot of variety and choice for all of us to find something we liked including Mr A. They had a range of cereals including muesli and granola, plus toast and wholewheat bread, muffins, croissants, yogurts and cooked options with included scrambled egg, sausage and bacon, beans and tomato plus coffee, tea and fruit juices. It's all you can eat so you can really full up for very little and once again kids eat free.
Overall we were really pleasantly surprised and think the revamped rooms are great and would recommend them for any city or short break. The hotels are very family friendly and we could not have asked for a better location as we could walk to Regents park and was right opposite the underground. I am sure we will be back again as it really had everything we needed.
Our stay was complimentary in return for an honest review
