ABERDEEN AIRPORT TRAVELODGE MAKES HISTORY AS PART OF UK'S BIGGEST HOTEL OPENING PROGRAMME
2nd Dec 2005
Today, Aberdeen Airport Travelodge made history as part of Travelodge's UK record of opening eight new hotels throughout the country in one day.
Travelodge has converted the existing 40-bedroom Premier Travel Inn at Burnside Drive to Aberdeen Airport Travelodge, This represents a £2 million investment and has created 20 jobs within the area.
Room rates at Aberdeen Airport Travelodge will start from £26 per night. You only pay for the room and not for the number of guests staying. There is a choice of rooms from family, double and disabled. Each room offers a comfortable setting with en-suite bathroom, luxury king-size bed, colour TV which offers pay on demand movies, telephone and Internet services and free tea and coffee making facilities.
The Hen Blackie Gastro Grill, which is located next door to the hotel, will continue to service guests with a breakfast, lunch and evening menu.
Gavin Paterson, Aberdeen Airport Travelodge Manager said: "We have seen tremendous growth for budget accommodation in Aberdeen over the last 12 months. Our new hotel is ideally located at the airport to offer business and leisure travellers a low-cost stopover. It makes sense to stay over and get a good night sleep before catching an early morning flight. For as little as £26 you can avoid the hassle and stress of getting to the airport on time."
The other Travelodge hotels to open today include: Manchester Airport, London City Airport, Bury, Norwich City Centre, Nottingham City Centre, Pembroke Dock, and St Austell which results in a total investment of £29.5 million, 752 rooms and a creation of 245 jobs.
