Travelodge stays open

Some 50 of Travelodge’s 570 budget hotel portfolio are currently staying open in critical locations across the UK to support NHS workers and local authorities.

Of these 20 are situated close to major hospitals across the country including Dockside Road half way between London City Airport and the Nightingale ExCeL emergency facility.

In addition, the company is supporting around 30 local councils around the country by providing accommodation for the more vulnerable. 

Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge spokeswoman, said:  “In these unprecedented times, our hotel teams across the UK are working enormously hard, under great pressure, to support the national efforts. We have hotels open from Aberdeen to Plymouth, providing accommodation for critical workers and other groups.

“We are reviewing daily which hotels are best positioned to support the needs that arise with the government while ensuring we comply with the restrictions in place to protect the public.”

Travelodge, in common with all UK hotel operators, has been obliged to temporarily close the majority of its roadhouses.
