Travelodge celebrates 30 years of London trading with three openings

Travelodge, London’s first budget hotel chain, celebrates 30 years of trading in the Capital with a hat trick of three London hotel openings.

The three new Travelodge hotels are located in Acton, Bromley and Dagenham. Collectively they represent an investment of over £35m for third party investors and have created 80 new jobs.

All three properties have been styled in Travelodge’s contemporary brand design and feature the company’s signature, luxurious, king size Travelodge Dreamer bed which sits within a mood lighting surround, which features spacious bedside shelves for smart devices and USB charging points. All family rooms include two individual beds for the children.

The rooms also feature LED ceiling lighting, providing a warmer ambiance, Travelodge’s ‘comfort cooling’ to enable to regulate the temperature of the room, a 32-inch Freeview TV, complementary tea & coffee making facilities and WiFi.

London Acton and Dagenham Travelodge hotels both feature the hotel chain’s on-site restaurant called the Bar Café, where customers can enjoy a breakfast, lunch, dinner and bar menu. In addition, London Acton Travelodge also offers the company’s premium economy SuperRooms (pictured).

Travelodge launched SuperRooms in 2017, bringing the ‘premium economy’ concept familiar to airline users to the UK budget hotel market. This new class of room, the first of its kind in the UK budget hotel market, dials up the comfort factor with a concept designed especially for business and leisure customers who want the extra choice of a more premium room. With the addition of London Acton Travelodge, the hotel chain offers over 1,000 SuperRooms across 24 hotels in London
