Travelodge expands

The last 15 months of tumult has been quickly put behind by Travelodge who last week announced it expects to open 17 new hotels across the UK in 2021.
It is anticipated that most of these 17 hotels will be open and trading in time for the summer season.
As part of this expansion, the group is continuing the rollout of Travelodge Plus, the group’s ‘budget chic’ hotel format. Launched in 2018, this concept is designed around the needs of the budget traveller who wants that little bit more style and choice with little touches to make it easier to work and relax both inside and outside the room. This year, the group is opening a further three Travelodge Plus hotels, and boosting its collection to 14 properties in prime locations across the UK.  This includes a further two Travelodge Plus hotels in London and the company’s first property in St Albans.
Travelodge is also taking its SuperRoom premium economy product to more locations across the UK this year via its new hotel openings programme. It also continues to grow and extend its on-site restaurant business with eight of this year’s new openings featuring the company’s Bar Café concept. These new additions will boost the group’s portfolio to over 200 hotels now featuring a Bar Café.

Opened last week were Travelodge London Mile End and Travelodge Portsmouth City Centre.  Both Travelodge Plus hotels, collectively they represent an approximate investment of £37m for third party investors and have created 55 new jobs.
