    £90 is a bargain. Who ever said old people weren't smart?

    I pointed out to my son he is paying more for his university digs,

    Why not simply stay in the local travelodge, have your breakfast made for you every day, and your room cleaned everyday and the bedding changed for you. :thumbsup:

    (or perhaps Travelodge should start managing university dorms...)

    Book the entire hotel up & sublet each room on a daily basis - make a fortune!
    You've only got to rent out 25% of the hotel to break even.

    Somehow I think they have a one-off special deal ;)

    £90 a week, breakfast every morning and a maid to clean the room. Ha, those two had the right idea.

    I didn't think Alan Partridge was married?

    Why does everyone think they get breakfast included?

    It does say they occasionally eat at the Little Chef, anyone actually been there? Last time i went a few months ago it was £4.99 for a bacon butty! And that was in Cumbria not flashy London.

    Correct, all Travel-Lodges that I recall do NOT serve breakfast but are sited near some establishment that does (at a price).

    Well, I hope that very few ever said it! In any case, the wife is currently 70, so was only 48 when the couple began this mode of living. And surely even those of an ageist tendency would not think anyone under 50 was "old".

    Take it easy Geofbob. No-one is being ageist.

    Perhaps you should have a cup of tea and a lie-down? :)
