Travelodge Aberdeen Central Justice Mill Review

Written by Karen Bryan

We stayed a the Travelodge Aberdeen Central Justice Mill on a Sunday night in early May 2018. I booked the room during a £10 off the price on Friday and Sunday nights promotion, which brought the price for the room down to £21 for the night.

The Travelodge website said that the hotel has a free car park on a first come, first served basis. I was hoping that by staying on a Sunday night and arriving at around 5pm, that we would find a space in the car park. But the car park was already full when we arrived.

As a Travelodge guest you get a 25% discount at a nearby multi-storey car park. But that was going to cost £9 to park until the following morning. I decided to pay £4 for two hours street parking close to the hotel, which meant that we had to be at the car by 10am.

When I first entered the room, I thought that the window had obscure glass. This effect was generated by the window looking onto a wall and the glass being dirty. Even with the lights on the room felt very gloomy. There was no light above the desk area.

On the bright side, I thought that we wouldn’t be awakened by bright sun and as were at the back at the hotel, we wouldn’t hear any external noise.

The room was pretty small, especially compared to the room at the Travelodge Peterhead, at which we had stayed the previous night.

Our stay at the Travelodge Aberdeen Central Justice Mill has put me off taking the car to a Travelodge in a city centre. If you have to pay for parking,  it adds to the cost of the cheap room. Plus, you have to spend time looking for a space to park. I felt that the room was too small for two people, but we did sleep well.

If you are travelling to Aberdeen by public transport and will be out on the town in the evening(s). then the Aberdeen Central Justice Mill will offer you a comfortable bed for the night in a central location.

As we’d been out for the day, taking a walk at Forvie Sands in Newburgh and visiting a couple of castles, we’d have preferred a larger, brighter room in which to spend the evening.
