Sorry, didn't mean Travelodge at this point, was referring to someone else's
suggestion of using  It was a random (but nicely located in
West Ken, iirc) small hotel, 50 quid for a room for the night.

technically no, the cheapest available room now is 9 pound, during the
autumn sale.  I'm not sure when it runs from/to and what the availability
is, thoguh.  Probably none left by now.

Oh, and to the original poster - might also be worth considering eBay.  I
know it sounds a bit odd, but I have seen some good hotel deals (presumably
by the hotel owner, with rooms to spare) on there recently (or at least,
they look superficially good)

Right, sorry, I'll go back to sleep now.
