Travelodge announces expansion plans after opening £5-million Cornwall hotel
Travelodge will increase budget accommodation options in Cornwall as it opens the doors to its latest branch and prepares for up to eight more.
The most recent offering from the low-cost hotel chain Travelodge is a £5-million hotel just off the A30 between Camborne and Redruth in Cornwall. Officially named Camborne Redruth Travelodge, this branch welcomed guests for the first time on December 5th and boasts 63 rooms available from £29 per night.
With its modern exterior, every room within this particular hotel is furnished with a king-size Travelodge Dreamer bed, as well as USB charging points close by.
Travelodge lists this hotel as being near to Camborne Retail Park and just a seven minute walk from World Heritage Gateway site Heartlands, with its mining attractions, botanical gardens and café, while “coastal beauty” is just a ten minute drive away.
While this branch employs 15 staff members, Travelodge hopes that its target to launch eight further hotels in the South-West could create the potential for 160 new jobs, many of which will offer flexible working hours to support those who cannot commit to a 9-5 job.
Sites for future Travelodge hotels could be found on the Isles of Scilly and on the North Coast of Cornwall in locations such as Bude, Newquay and St Ives, as well as the towns of Looe, Fowey, Truro, Falmouth and Penzance on the South coast.
Travelodge’s regional director for the area, Gary Steele, cites the shortage of budget hotel options as one reason for the expansion: “The Cornwall economy is growing at pace, and as the UK’s top staycation destination, visitor numbers are increasing year on year, however there is still a shortage of good quality accommodation at a great value price. Therefore to meet this growing consumer demand, we are actively looking for hotel sites.”
Travelodge has steadily expanded since it first opened its doors in 1985 and now consists of over 560 hotels with 40,000 guest rooms, and employs more than 11,000 people across the UK, Ireland and Spain.
