Burford Travelodge is conveniently sited on the A40/A361 roundabout to the south of the town. it is an attractive long low building constructed with the local stone.
It has been recently refurbished in the new colour scheme with magnolia and pale blue contrast walls and blue, red and grey striped curtains. It is fresh and inviting. Best of all, mattresses have been replaced with ones specially designed for travelodge. They are very comfortable and a definite improvement.
As it is one of the older lodges, rooms are a generous size with plenty of space. We had an extra small bed as well as a pull out bed. There were two arm chairs but no sofa now (which was never very comfortable to sit on, but did provide somewhere to put belongings off the floor).
There was a good size working area and reasonable hanging space. As we were stopping four nights, we could have done with an extra shelf.
The bathroom has the new non slip floor which is an improvement especially as it feels warmer on the feet. The over the bath shower was excellent, although we found the non slip surface in the bath not as non slip as it could be. We had to be careful when getting in and out. Towels did rather let them down though, as they were thin and did get wet quickly. We assume the refurbishment didn't stretch to new towels.
There was a small flat screen TV and welcome tray plus the usual plastic mugs for water….
The room was warm and quiet.
There are plenty of places to eat in Burford and there is a Little Chef next to the Travelodge providing basic cheap meals.
For cheap, no frills accommodation, this can't be beaten. It is also a good base for exploring the Cotswolds and is only 40minutes drive into the centre of Oxford.
