Travelodge recently announced the introduction of their ‘dreamer’ beds to a number of refurbished hotels across the country. I had the chance to test one of the new king sized beds at the Covent Garden Travelodge last month and it did make for a good night’s sleep.
The hotel chain has partnered up with Sleepeezee to create beds which boast a mattress made of more than 950 pocket springs. Meaning, they are specially designed to follow the natural contour of the body and provide the right amount of comfort and support while you sleep. The ‘dreamer’ bed was very comfortable and spacious – and if you’re looking for a hotel to stay in at the centre of Covent Garden at short notice, what more do you need?
Being so close to the West End makes Travelodge a convenient place to lay your head if you’re attending an event close by, visiting the popular sights and attractions that London has to offer or going to the theatre to see the latest play. The room was very clean and there were nice little lights on either side of the ‘dreamer’ bed which made the room glow giving it a little cosy ambience (and proved good for reading).
Each room comes with a number of plug sockets, a television and a mini kettle with some tea and coffee readily available. So, theoretically, if you’re running around the West End during the day and have an important even to attend in the evening, you could check in, recharge yours (and your phone’s) batteries, grab a quick cup of coffee and a shower; head back out – refreshed – and return once again later on, to the comfort of your room without any real hassle.
The staff at the hotel were lovely and though it’s not the most quiet place to stay, the hustle and bustle that’s expected from Covent Garden simply serves as a friendly reminder of just how close you are to the heart of the city.
