Weston-super-Mare Travelodge, the company’s 526th hotel, is an 84-room hotel with a Bar Café. The hotel represents an investment value of £6.5 million and has created 22 new jobs.
Located on Beaufighter Road right next to the Weston Business Quarter, the hotel is ideally located to serve both leisure and business customers.
The hotel features the company’s brand new contemporary brand look throughout, which has been designed by customers. All rooms feature the new bespoke, luxurious king-size Travelodge Dreamer bed. In addition individual beds have been introduced for children in all family rooms. The hotel reception and Bar Café area are also designed in the company’s brand new look.
Travelodge recently completed a three-year £100 million modernisation programme across all of its UK hotels, meaning all Travelodge hotels now offer this new look and a consistent quality room experience to guests, updated for the needs of modern travellers.
Travelodge currently operates six hotels across Somerset and to meet the rising demand from business and leisure customers for good value accommodation, Travelodge has embarked on an expansion drive to open a further 250 hotels across the UK. At today’s opening ceremony, Travelodge Chief Operating Officer Jon Hendry Pickup announced that Travelodge is seeking to open a further four hotels across Somerset. The locations include: Bath, Keynsham, Minehead and Yeovil.
This proposed Somerset expansion programme is expected to represent a total investment value of £20 million and will create 75 new jobs.
