    Default TravelLodge are having a laugh!

    so me and the wife are going away the morn to edinburgh for some piece from the kids, dont get away often so looking forward to it. we were looking to stay at the Edinburgh west end branch of there hotel chain, secure carpark and such now the rooms have been around 65 quid mark all week but we have held off incase of a bargain room.

    now this morning found out they had rooms available in the branch we wanted to stay at for 29 quid! so straight away went to book it just to realise the wife had withdrawn all our money in cash! so wellied it thru to the bank to pay in money to book the room. got back went to book the room and yep not available any more at 29 quid. shot up to £89 for the same room so needless to say i wernt to impressed. jumped on the phone to see if there was anything they could do and the little inbreed on the fone basicly told me "tough" nothing i can do about it. now the wife thinks ive booked it and got a bargain. just wait till she gets home and finds out.

    so looking thru the likes of lateroom's to see if i can grab a deal but looks like its gonna be round the 80quid mark for a room now should have been quicker, her fault tho for withdrawing all the cash. but will be my fault for not driving fast enough gonna be a war shortly

    last time I went to Edinburgh,.. I turned up at Hotel No. 10 only to be told, 'ah yes, we were expecting you last week'!.... and you guessed it ... no rooms left!
    So paid thru the nose for that one and had to get another booked within 10 minutes!... but did ... cost £500 all together for both!!

    Try Fraser Suites just off the royal mile ... my friend telephoned and got a great room for £70 per night

    Try the Pollock Halls
    Basic, cheap (much like monodge) and if you are planning to eat out and be touristy, then it's fine
    £77.50 per night


    How about the hotel next to the Forth Road Bridge?
    They currently **subject to time** have rooms at £33 per night for Friday to Monday (otherwise £36 per night)

    Above, are based on twin room, room only

    Also look at visitscotland.com accomodation but not much left with such short notice... premium kerching

    we were wanting something closeish to the center of edinburgh as its a nightmare trying to drive round it and we have got the underground terror tour at 10.30pm. so would have been great to jump in a taxi back to the room.

    but will give it a look.


    as for 500quid for a room ive got that much to find a room, fuel the car, and doo stuff lol
