Travelodge Opens New Flagship Hotel In Lincoln City Centre
Now open – 127 Rooms
The new hotel, which is the company's 572nd hotel and its 10th property in Lincolnshire, was opened by the Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Keith Weaver, the City of Lincoln Sheriff, Roy South, and Nigel Mackenzie, Travelodge UK Operations Director.
Lincoln City Centre Travelodge, a 127 room-hotel with an on-site restaurant called the Bar Café, is the company's largest hotel in the county. It is also the first Travelodge hotel in the region to offer SuperRooms.
This new class of room is the first of its kind in the UK budget hotel market. It is designed around the 'premium economy' concept familiar to airline users. It dials up the comfort factor for business and leisure customers who want the extra choice of a more premium room.
Lincoln City Centre Travelodge is located in the heart of the city centre, next to the railway station. It represents an investment of £14 million for the landlord, City of Lincoln Council, and has created 40 new jobs within the community. Rooms are available from £29 and £39 for SuperRooms at www.travelodge.co.uk.
In November, Travelodge announced the official opening of Gainsborough Travelodge, the town's first branded budget hotel to open during the hotel chain's 30th year of trading in the county.
Situated at Marshalls Yard, Gainsborough Travelodge is a 56-room hotel with on-site car-parking. It represents an investment of £4m for the landlord, Dransfield Properties and has created 16 new jobs within the community.
Thirdly, the company announced today, at the official opening of Lincoln City Centre Travelodge, that it is actively looking for a further three hotel sites across Lincolnshire's key tourist areas which include: Boston, Skegness and Stamford.
This proposed expansion would represent an investment of £13 million for third party investors and create 60 new jobs. It would also boost Travelodge's portfolio to 13 hotels in Lincolnshire, cementing its position as the county's largest budget hotelier.
