Hotel chain Travelodge and pub company Marston’s have announced plans to co-locate in Newquay as they look to expand further in Cornwall.
The two firms have exchanged contracts to develop a new mixed-use site in Newquay, Cornwall, which, subject to planning permission, will see a 66-bed hotel built towards the end of 2012. Meanwhile, Marston’s will commission a Two for One Family Pub Restaurant with 188 dining covers at the same site.
Crantock Development will be running the development in two phases. The first will involve six business units comprising 25,000 sq ft are available. Phase 2 will see larger units released onto the market. In addition, 120 residential units are being built.
Stephen Tyler, development manager for Travelodge, said: “As we are the only branded budget hotel in the town centre and are in a great spot directly above the Great Western Beach, we’ve had fantastic occupancy rates from literally the day we opened.”
“The Newquay Business Park represents a new commercial hub for what is already one of the most visited towns in Britain. A thriving business community coupled with an all-year round leisure demand means this site is ideal for a Travelodge hotel.”
Travelodge said it has updated its target location list for Cornwall and is currently looking for new hotels in: Camborne or Redruth, Falmouth, Truro and Penzance.
