Travelodge to spend £61m on 10 new hotels in UK

Travelodge has announced the development of 10 new hotels, at an investment value of £61m.

The hotels will provide an additional 1,133 rooms and will create 300 jobs, with all entry level staff being recruited from the long term unemployed.

There will be three new hotels in London, two in Manchester and further openings in Bristol, Liverpool, Camberley, Cannock and Andover.

The new London hotels underlines Travelodge's commitment to being the biggest hotel brand in the capital by London 2012.

"During the recession we have taken the opportunity to grow where many have put their development on hold," said Paul Harvey, Travelodge's managing director for development.

"In 2009 we secured more hotels than any other year in our history and have been able to attain superior sites due to lower property prices."
