2nd Dec 2005
Today, St Austell Travelodge made history as part of Travelodge's UK record of opening eight new hotels throughout the country in one day. The £2.5 million, 67-bedroom hotel has created 20 new jobs within the area and is located at Pentewan Road, St Austell.
Room rates at St Austell 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, which includes 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.
There is also an onsite Bar-Café at the hotel, which offers a range of meals and refreshments throughout the day and evening. (Breakfast, evening meals, snacks 24-hours a day and bar service until 1.00am). A free onsite car-park is available to guests.
Louise Thompson, St Austell Travelodge Hotel Manager said: "There is tremendous growth opportunity for budget accommodation in St Austell. Our new Travelodge hotel will provide a high quality, lost cost stop-over for business and leisure travellers from as little as £26. Local residents can also benefit by putting up family and friends at the hotel and avoid the additional stress and hassle at home. Perfect for the forthcoming Christmas holidays."
The other Travelodge hotels to open today include: Manchester Airport, London City Airport, Aberdeen Airport, Bury, Norwich City Centre, Nottingham City Centre and Pembroke Dock which results in a total investment of £27.5 million, 725 new rooms and a creation of 240 jobs.
