Travelodge Cosmic Night Sky Room

In a UK first, Travelodge has launched a hotel room which will allow customers to sleep under the stars in the comfort of their bed.

A secret technique has been used to create the stunning ‘Night Sky’ at a dozen Travelodge hotels across the country.  Each bespoke cosmic panorama has been created by artist Carl Marshall.
Carl and a colleague have artistically transformed a standard white ceiling into a cosmic sky by hand painting individual shooting stars, milky ways and constellations of twinkling stars.  On average it took them three hours to complete one ceiling.      

Neil Shah, Founder of The Stress Management Society, said: “The Travelodge night sky room is a great concept to help you de-stress after a long day.  Focusing on something, such as a sky full of stars, which the brain is unable to consciously analyse or tune into, encourages our minds to switch off and drift into a stress free deep sleep”.
Chris Idzikowski, Director of Edinburgh Sleep Centre, said: “This new innovation can help towards attaining a good night’s sleep.  The way it works supports our natural sleep / wake cycle.  In darkness our brain’s (pineal gland) releases melatonin, the hormone of darkness which supports sleep.  Whilst dawn light is very important for keeping the biological clock ticking to the right time”. 

The Travelodge cosmic night sky panorama hotel room is available at the following hotels:

  • Birmingham Bull Ring
  • Blackpool South Shore
  • Bournemouth Seafront
  • Bristol Central Mitchell Lane
  • Cardiff Atlantic Wharf
  • Edinburgh Central Waterloo
  • Liverpool Strand
  • London City Road
