Scanning the Racing Calender for the next few weeks,<br>[Week Days’ only!], a few fixtures caught my eye.<br>The combination of being an unsuccessful gambler to the fact I am a succesful Drinker, accommadation is necessary.
Noting the prospective race fixtures I cross referenced to the Travel Lodge Site, seeking the nearest Lodges’.
The prices’ on offer are excellent, some at Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£13.00 per room per night.
I have allowed the staff of a lodge at Skeeby, on the A1 to look after me, and family, next week to facilitate visits to Wetherby and Catterick.<br>The Family Room was only Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£22.00 a night, and is a short Taxi ride from Richmond.
If the Room Sale is still ongoing, I highly recommend a visit to their site.;)

I’ve stayed at more Travel lodges than I’ve had hot dinners. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â If you book well in advance you can often get them for the prices quoted otherwise it’s often Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£50 or so and I find that some of those near larger towns and cities it’s very difficult to get at the cheaper prices at any time. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Should you find yourself in Scotland the one near Stirling is just about the best I’ve been in so far, and the one opposite Fontwell is quite convenient.
Just a word of advice, never get a room on the ground floor. I know it’s easier to get all your luggage in etc. but you may not get a good nights sleep with a family group [much like yourselves…lol], clunking around in the room above. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Most annoying ! and if it’s another couple then we often hear them humping.:biggrin:
So if you are on the first floor please think of the poor folks below trying to get some shuteye. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â ta.. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â <br>March 29, 2007 at 19:19 #49127BurroughhillParticipant

We’re real cheapskates when it comes to holidays, and for this year’s jaunt we’re staying for a week in a Travelodge in London near the Tate Modern. You know what you’re getting with Travelodge, and I love the area, so why not? It’ll be fun!March 29, 2007 at 21:54 #49129Lovely LadyMember

Well I hope you enjoy your holiday. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â We’re hoping to get to the new Great Leigh’s racecourse near Chelmsford [raceday buses to course from station] when it finally opens and combine it with some time in London. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The most convenient Travel lodge near Liverpool St station is Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£95 with seemingly no concessions for booking in advance [for the autumn], whereas the one not far away at Kings Cross Royal Scot can be had for Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£26 – can’t beat that for a double room en suite.
I like the look of this Great Leigh’s course just judging it Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â from their website, probably a bit too far for you Gilly:)
