Travelodge investing in new Lincolnshire hotels

This story is over

Travelodge has sights set on new hotels in three Lincolnshire towns as part of an expansion programme in the county.

The company is looking for new sites in Boston, Skegness and Stamford, which would create 60 new jobs.

The expansion programme would represent an investment of £13 million for third party investors, boosting Travelodge’s portfolio to 13 hotels in Lincolnshire.

Travelodge UK Operations Director Nigel Mackenzie said: “We are delighted to be celebrating 30 years of trading in the region with a hat trick of growth and investment announcements.

“This includes: opening our Lincolnshire flagship hotel in the heart of Lincoln, together with Gainsborough’s first branded budget hotel, as well as announcing further growth in the county.

“Over the last three decades, Travelodge has become famous across the county for offering unbeatable value which has helped attract more business and leisure travellers to the area.

“Looking forward, the Lincolnshire economy is growing at pace with increasing visitor numbers to the area. However there is still a shortage of good quality accommodation at a great value price.

“Therefore to meet this growing consumer demand we are looking for new hotel sites in the following tourist hotspot locations: Boston, Skegness and Stamford. Collectively this expansion programme would represent an investment of £13 million for third party investors and create 60 new jobs.”

The new flagship 127-room hotel in Lincoln City Centre recently had its official opening, which is the company’s 572nd hotel and its 10th property in Lincolnshire. It is the first Travelodge hotel in the region to offer SuperRooms and also has an on-site restaurant called Bar Café.

It was opened by the Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Keith Weaver, the City of Lincoln Sheriff, Roy South and Travelodge UK Operations Director Nigel Mackenzie.

Gainsborough’s new 56-room Travelodge hotel opened for business after a ceremony at the site at Marshalls Yard last month, which created 16 new jobs within the community.
