Hey folks!
I'm wanting to take the odd weekend break in Wales with my partner, in order to relax a bit, and explore new areas. Can anyone recommend what, in their opinion, is the best Travelodge that they've been to in Wales?

    I live in Bridgend and although not stayed in Pencoed Travellodge its just off the m4 and set in pretty quiet country area.close to lots of places cardiff or swansea way.St.Fagans Folk museum of wales is lovely.good shopping at Mccarthur Glen at Bridgend if you fancy shopping.Gower coast and waterfront museum which is new and very good swansea way.
    Have stayed in Bangor one when son and daughter in uni there and thats ok.Enjoyed Monmouth one and lvely scenery and quaint shops in area.As you will have guessed l love a bargain travelodge room for a weekend away!Pm meif l can be any help if you chosePencoed-junction 35 M4.
    :j this money saving is such fun:T
  • agree with sharon ( i too live in bridgend,and I work in pencoed!) the pencoed one is ideally situated for discovering many lovely places nearby

    Ogmore By Sea isnt far and is lovely,also Llantwit major for beach and walks etc
    Bryngarw and Margam parks are nice to explore / walk round
    you also have Cardiff within easy reach ( train station @ pencoed if you didnt want to drive,about 3 miles from the travelodge)

    theres also a travelodge in Pembroke (ive not stayed there) I am originally from pembrokeskire and you will be spoilt for choice deciding what towns,villages,beaches,castles etc to go to !

    a lovely,lovely part of wales have a look here

  • anywhere in Wales in particular ??

    Although Wales isnt that big a country i wouldnt like to walk it on stilts
    :cool: hard as nails on the internet . wimp in the real world :cool:

    Friends came to stay earlier this year and said they thought Premier Inns were better than Travelodges - especially recommended the Wallston castle in Wenvoe

  • There is a newish Travelodge in Caerphilly which I hear is very nice. Close to town centre and also nearby cinema/bowling/Frankie & Benny's etc., Caerphilly Castle nearby and not too far from Cardiff city and St Fagans museum which is definitely worth a visit. If you need any further advice please feel free to ask.

    they are definitely better ,i agree

    BUT they dont offer £9 rooms ;)
  • They are just building one on the outskirts of Porthmadog, (it will be ready early next year I should think) great little town, only a couple of miles from some great beaches and less than 30 miles (roughly) from Snowdon. What could be better!!!!!! google porthmadog to see the area.
    look after the pennies and the pounds look after themselves.
  • Crosshands near Llanelli is ok i believe. Aren't they all to a similar standard?

    Well situated for the Gower coast and Pembrokeshire, West Wales coast.

    Within very easy reach of Swansea, Llanelli and Carmarthen.
  • Don't know about a travel lodge as they all the same but I know a fab B&B in Abergavenny called Ty Llew it's right in town and really good and clean and fab hosts call 01873 850086
    they'll be able to help and the rates are good and the breakfast is huge and delicious
  • I've stayed in the Caerphilly one about a month ago. Had a family room (double bed and pull out sofa bed) so a good size, small flat screen tv on the wall, very new and clean, lots of free car parking and nice and quiet at night.

    Easy and quick to drive into Cardiff and about 30 min drive to the outlet village at Bridgend and not far from there onto ogmore by sea which a previous poster mentioned and as they said, is lovely. I've always found the M4 really quiet past Cardiff so quick to get between places - might be cos I always go around October time though, maybe busier earlier in the year.

    Only thing with caerphilly was they don't have a cafe for breakfast - only the lighter breakfast in a bag option. we just took croissants and stuff with us. tea and coffee in the room.

    would recommend it and if you want to pay the extra get a family room cos you'll have more space/sofa to sit on.
