I make a lot of use of Travel Lodge.  On average, I find them OK.  I 
prefer Premier Inn.

The third bed is the sofa.  If you want it and it isn't made up, ask at 
reception.  When you fill in the on-line form, tell them how many people 
are staying - they usually get it right.

I stayed in the one in central Edinburgh for Christmas and boxing day 
about three years ago.  Booked six months in advance.  Total cost £20.  
For what *I* paid, it was excellent.  Over that Christmas, we strung 
together 11 x £10 rooms and toured the country.  A week's holiday for 
£110 was not to be sniffed at.  The minimum price has nearly doubled 
since then and it is tougher to find cheap rooms in the right places at 
the right times.

This happened to me exactly once.  They paid about 100 quid to put us in 
a rather excellent private hotel.  It was a few miles away but that 
happened to make no difference to us.
