Six more hotels are being opened in the UK before Christmas by Travelodge in a £45m investment that includes Scotland’s first new-build Travelodge Plus property in Edinburgh.
Continuing the company’s general UK expansion (BTN 12 August), the programme is creating 135 new jobs and brings the company’s UK, Ireland and Spain portfolio to 595 hotels.
The Travelodge Plus concept, which the company calls “budget-chic”, features newly-designed budget rooms, upgraded SuperRooms and a new-style restaurant. The Edinburgh property will be the company’s 46th in Scotland.
It will be located in the Edinburgh Business Park, close to Edinburgh Park rail station and Edinburgh Airport and also home to the headquarters of Royal Bank of Scotland, Lloyds Bank and NHS Scotland.
The other new openings include a third Travelodge in Chippenham as well as two more in London, in Dagenham and Beckton. Rochester and Sittingbourne are also getting their first properties under the brand.
Spokesperson Shakila Ahmed said: “Despite the uncertainty facing the UK, the long-term prospects for low-cost hotels remain strong. We are focused on ensuring that we can give consumers the right choice, in the right place, at the right price.
“Today’s Travelodge not only offers the same great value as always, but the extra premium choice of our new Travelodge Plus and SuperRoom concepts.”
