Biggest Accessible Rooms Ever Stayed In!
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Symbol Cane, Wheelchair, Powerchair
I stayed in one of the 'accessible rooms' at the Travelodge on Waterloo, London in July 2018. Staff were friendly and helpful. Spoke to me, not my partner when checking in. Member of staff lead us up in the lift to our room which was nice. Could not get over how BIG the accessible room was. The Queen size bed isn't directly in the middle so if gives far more room to navigate in a wheelchair or swing around a mobile hoist. There was ample room underneath the bed for a mobile hoists legs to go under just fine. You could easily ask for an additional single/camp bed for another individual and still have enough room. Room features a nice height desk that I could get my legs under in my powerchair, wheelchair height plug sockets and USB ports, light switches next to the bed you can easily reach from your chair. Bathroom was equally spacious with a nice size wheel in shower with pull down seat, lots of grab rails, sink was accessible too. It is a busy, popular hotel so despite there being 3 functioning lifts, sometimes (esp in the morning) there will be a queue for the lifts. Restaurant was nice, good variety of food. Love the modern seating area at the front aswell. I'd definitely recommend this hotel for a wheelchair user.

Transport & Parking
Taxi parking outfront was ideal. Its about a 10 min walk from Waterloo Station but was disappointed to realise there's no step free access to many of the lines so attempting to the tube was off the table.
Enterance was all flat, 3 lifts to all floors.
I cannot use standard disabled toilets so I did not check theres.
Very helpful, friendly and spoke directly to me.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
The surrounding cafes are really nice so definitely check those out!
