Travelodge announces expansion in Greater Manchester

Budget hotel operator Travelodge has exchanged contracts with Orbit Developments for two new hotels in Greater Manchester, costing a total of £9m.

The first hotel, in Stockport, located in a section of office block Regent House, will feature 86 bedrooms, while a 67-bedroom hotel will be developed within a four-storey 1980s office building in Sale. Together, the two hotels will create 45 jobs. Planning applications have been submitted, with both hotels due to open at the end of next year.

Travelodge, which currently has 522 hotels, is looking for seven more sites in Greater Manchester, representing an investment of £35m.

Paul Harvey (pictured), managing director, property, Travelodge, described Manchester at being at the forefront of the UK boom and a key growth area for Travelodge.

"The powerhouse is a vital hub for business, tourism and is also home to four universities. Therefore we are delighted to boost our current portfolio of 16 hotels in the city with two new prime additions in Sale and Stockport," he said.

"However we think there is still a huge opportunity to grow further in Greater Manchester in response to the growing demand from business and leisure visitors for good value accommodation."

Harvey added that Travelodge is targeting further sites in Manchester city centre (two), Cheadle, Oldham, Rochdale, Wigan and Worsley.
