Travelodge starts work on London flagship amid expansion

Travelodge has kicked off construction work on a new flagship hotel in London and announced plans to build 15 additional hotels across the UK this year as part of £125m investment. 

The budget hotel chain said the new 395-room  site in the capital, on Middlesex Street in the City of London, would be the group’s largest ever new-build hotel.

It will open next spring, a company spokeswoman told Construction News. Construction firm Tolent is the principal contractor for the project. 

Travelodge revealed the 15 other hotels opening this year will be located at: 

  • Brent Cross, London 
  • Bromley Shopping Centre, London
  • Romford Quadrant (shopping centre), London
  • Wood Green shopping centre, London
  • Harrow, London
  • Westgate, Bath 
  • Dudley
  • Inverness
  • Swing Bridge, Newcastle
  • Peterhead
  • Redhill
  • Stirling
  • Lakeside Shopping Centre, Thurrock 
  • West Bromwich
  • Layerthorpe, York

It will bring Travelodge’s total number of hotels in the UK, Ireland and Spain to 558.

Travelodge chief executive Peter Gowers said: “With room to grow, we have identified 250 further locations where we believe we can take Travelodge over the years ahead.

“We expect to further extend our national network and also to add more rooms in London.”

Construction News reported last year that capital spending on UK hotels reached about £1.5bn in 2014.
