Travelodge in Merthyr Tydfil – Bikes in rooms?
Never had a problem at any hotel, Premier Inn or Travelodge inc. Hilton at Newport. In fact most let us lock them in a conference room.
The PI in Llantrisant said they were used to it as long as they are clean, and as they werent the then gave us some spare towels to put on the floor!
So PI in Llantrisant isnt so conventient for BPW – but FYI it is conveniently located next door to Glamorgam A&E……Posted 4 years agoMoreCashThanDashSubscriber
We used the Windsor Travel Lodge earlier this year and most of Long Eaton Velo Club had their bikes in their rooms – day 2 of a week long stag ride to Paris apparently
The bikes weren’t clean either, it had been hissing down all day, admittedly not off road riders thoughPosted 4 years agoterrahawkSubscriber
Travelodge aren’t bothered at all about people taking bikes in the rooms. Or filthy, post-24 hour race bikes that mysteriously emerge from the room cleaner than they did when they went in…
they’re not arsed about turbo trainers either 🙂

We got told off in the Travelodge at Cambridge, cos it was the new one at Orchard Park and they didn’t want their new paint scratched! After pointing out to them that they had numerous signs in their car park telling us not to leave personal possessions in the car, they offered us the use of the laundry room to store them.Posted 4 years ago
We had actually got them in unseen the first night, but got stopped as we were going out in the morning – doh!MrSmithMember
I have stayed in Merthyr travelodge as I have a client there, after the first visit I insisted they book me into the premier inn or at a hotel/B&B that was further up the valley near the reservoir.Posted 4 years ago
I doubt they are bothered about bikes but I would put the frame and the wheels in separate bin liners and stroll through reception like a boss.
As it turned out, we left them in the car, no problems. Parked right outside reception, though. Family room slept three in comfort, very cheaply. Four would have been OK, as long as people are happy to share a double. Shower was perfectly fine, but no gel etc provided, so take your own. All in all, a good very cheap place to stay for Bike Park Wales. Nothing special, but damned cheap!
A nice stroll in to Merthyr for a Saturday night curry. Moksh, on the High St, very highly recommended. Great food, and good service. Several beers at the Wetherspoon’s in the lower high st, all perfectly fine if nothing amazing. The real value of the night was the people watching, however…..Quite superb value!
Breakfast choices were limited on the “Leisure park”, but Frankie & Bennies served up a £5 breakfast feast of pancakes, eggs and bacon and all the coffee we could drink. Much needed after the night before.
Oh, you want to know about BPW? OK, good fun. Lots of fun, actually.
Sixtapod, Wibbly Wobbly and Rim Dinger are probably my pick of the bunch. Crashed hard on first run of Willy Waver as friend in front lost it equally hard in to that tree. I reckon, looking at the way it’s been beaten up, many people have hit it! Overall, a laugh, and a different scene from a DH only uplift day.
Food at the centre was OK. OK, the flapjack was EPIC, but the burger was just OK.
Nice day at Cwm Carn having a leisurely hangover ride of the Twrch today as well.Posted 4 years ago
