Guys and gals - whats the general consensus of the Travelodgery? I'm about to book our room, and Kingston Central is about double the price of the Chessington Tolworth one, but it'd be worth it if it afforded an increased chance of a meet up with Frosties* pre/post gig - especially if the curry house is nearby. Also it's staggering distance from The Peel looks better, which may be an important factor  :D

I seem to remember Pedders saying that parking is a bit hit and miss with the Central Travelodge though??

So who's staying where? Sorry if this has already been posted elsewhere in the forum - I've had a look around but couldn't dig up the info!

I was driving back home after the gig but things seem to be changing so a stayover looks on the books.
Looking at the travelodges myself. I think Mouse stayed in the central one last time. I know i parked in the car park alongside it.

Yep, I'm in Central.
Didn't have any trubshaw parking last time I stayed there if I recall... or was that the old central one?

I have only stayed at the nearest travel lodge once and you most certainly could NOT park there.  I parked near The Peel and walked back to get it the next morning.  This was several years ago now tho.

I am thinking about getting accommodation too even though I am relatively local.  If I drive I can't drink and if I get public transport I may miss Cosmic Lawnmower doing his thing again (or whatever may happen this year).

There's a gurt big car park just over the road from the hotel. Have a look on Google Streetview. We parked there when we stayed at the Central. That was a Saturday and we nearly parked in the underground bit which would have been locked until Monday (or something) so read the signage.

There's a multi story next door to the Kingston Central travelodge as well.
