Travelodge is already a go-to for holidaymakers after a bargain break, but the budget hotel chain has just upped its game as it unveils a second brand of cheap hotels.
Set to open from mid-July, the new Travelodge Plus hotels have been designed for “the budget traveller who wants that little bit more style and choice” with sleeker room designs, updated Bar Café areas and the chain’s already existing SuperRoom offering.
The biggest difference will be in the new Travelodge Plus rooms, which have been designed with a ‘Tranquility Zen’ colour scheme, not to mention they will offer guests a host of features for a comfortable night’s stay.
For example, there will be the brand’s signature king-size Travelodge Dreamer bed, as well as blackout curtains so that guests can get their beauty sleep.
As well as plenty of USB ports so you can stay connected on all of your gadgets, the rooms will boast pixel wall art showcasing the region’s best attractions from London hotspots to the landscapes of the Scottish highlands.
Travelodge Plus will also offer up a new Bar Café to suit both business travellers and those visiting for leisure.
Think counter seating with built-in USB and laptop power ports, as well as booths and dining benches for groups.
The hotels will also include premium economy SuperRooms, with Hansgrohe Raindance showers, in-room Lavazza coffee pod machines, irons and ironing boards, larger desks and more USB power points.
The flagship hotel will be in the City of London with 395 rooms, establishing it as the group’s largest ever new build hotel. It will be the first to open this summer, with the brand also rolling out the format in other cities such as Edinburgh and York.
Where are the new Travelodge Plus hotels?
You can already book your stay on the Travelodge website here but it’s always worth keeping your eyes peeled for Travelodge deals and discounts if you want to try and snap up a bargain.
Peter Gowers, Travelodge Chief Executive said: “Britain is now a nation of budget travellers, with more of us choosing to stay in budget hotels than any other hotel type.
“The launch of Travelodge Plus helps us offer that little bit more choice for those who want it, while staying true to our mission to be the favourite hotel for value.
“The hotel market is following the same path as airlines and retail.
“Budget hotels launched as niche offers but now dominate the market, with a wider customer base than ever.
“After investing more than £100m to upgrade our hotels across the UK, bringing in our ‘premium economy’ SuperRooms and now launching Travelodge Plus, we are now well placed to match the needs of today’s travellers.
“From business people more used to high-end hotels to those just getting away for a quick break, budget hotels now offer a wide range of travel choices to suit everyone.”
