Travelodge opens third Gatwick hotel

Travelodge opens third Gatwick hotel

Travelodge has opened its third hotel at Gatwick airport.

Crawley Travelodge, on Pegler Way five miles from the airport. The £7m hotel has 110 rooms.

The new hotel includes king-size beds, while their colour palette has been developed with a chromotherapy expert to induce sleep. Walls have been painted blue to encourage a slow down in metabolism, which in turn promotes sleep.

Crawley Travelodge is being managed by Andrina Wooler who started working at Travelodge as a part-time night receptionist in 2008.

Wooler said: "I am so thrilled to be managing Crawley's first Travelodge hotel in such a prime location. There is a growing demand for good quality, low cost accommodation in the area, as getting value for money is hugely important for consumers in today's market. As a result, we are ideally placed to be the smart choice for business and leisure travellers.

"The hotel has got off to a flying start and there is no doubt that our new room design has had a great impact on sales. Customer feedback has been phenomenal, especially in relation to the Travelodge Dreamer Bed and the overall enhanced new experience."
