A new Travelodge has opened in Eastleigh, opposite the railway station. It's perfect for me, being half way between the yard and the office. I need never go home! I'm looking forward to being invited round to view and select my personal suite in the very near future.
Meanwhile the new hotel was the hot topic of conversation between two senior citizens chatting in Eastleigh bus station one morning this week.
"There's absolutely no need for the new Travelodge", said one of them, "nobody ever needs to stay the night in Eastleigh anyway".
"You're right", agreed the other, "and Eastleigh's traffic is gridlocked. The Travelodge will just push it over the edge!"
