Airport hotels

Travelodge, the Dubai-owned budget hotel group, is getting even more business traveller oriented and has now issued a list of new UK hotel openings near or just by airports and ferry terminals.  Major intercity railway stations will no doubt follow.

In 2010 Travelodge opened the following properties, best described as airport adjacent: Bournemouth Cooper Dean (28 rooms), Cardiff Airport (28 rooms), Newcastle Airport (30 rooms) and Stansted Bishops Stortford (70 rooms).

On the port/ferry terminal front Plymouth Derriford is operational (75 rooms), as is Roborough (40 rooms) which also serves the airport.  At Portsmouth, Hilsea has 33 rooms and is close to the city's Continental Terminal.

Now fast approaching 400 UK rooms Travelodge offers a king-sized bed, en-suite bathroom, remote control colour tv and courtesy tea and coffee-making facilities.  Some properties have wi-fi and also a café.  Readers should check before booking on the facilities offered as whilst some hotels are excellent, others acquired from previous competitors have not always been upgraded. www.travelodge.co.uk
