Travelodge opens door for work windfall
Hotel chain Travelodge has sparked a potential jackpot for architects by announcing £135 million expansion plans for 37 hotels near the UK’s national parks
Sites near all of the UK’s 15 national parks are being considered, with Aviemore (Cairngorms), Betws-y-Coed (Snowdonia), Grasmere (Lake District) and Minehead (Exmoor) top of the firm’s list of areas.
The developments could range from 30 rooms to over 100 bedrooms depending on the location and building requirements.
The firm recently fianlised a deal for a hotel in Glossop, Derbyshire, in a former mill building.
Nick Dines, director at Belgrave Communications, said: ‘Each of the 37 Travelodge sites act independently and will work with architects and developers in forming the plans.’
