Travelodge is planning 17 hotel further openings this year in locations including Chippenham, Glasgow and Marlow.
The next wave of its expansion programme will be developed by third-party investment amounting to around £115m and will grow the budget hotel firm's business to 595 locations in the UK, Spain and Ireland.
As part of the programme, Travelodge will continue the roll-out of its Travelodge Plus concept, with its seventh property, a new build regional hotel at Marlow-on-Thames, to go alongside its city centre hotels in Edinburgh, York, London and Brighton.
The Travelodge Plus concept is described as a ‘budget chic' format aimed at the budget traveller who wants that appreciates a little more style.
The 17 Travelodge hotels expected to open in 2019 are:
Bury St Edmunds
Gosport High Street
