NEW HASTINGS TRAVELODGE CUTS EXISTING HOTEL ROOM RATE BY 75%
16th Dec 2005
Today, Travelodge, the UKs number one budget hotel brand officially opened its first hotel in Hastings at Summerfields, Bohemia Road. Travelodge has spent over £100,000 refurbishing the former 40-bedroom Cinique Ports hotel into the new 50-bedroom Hastings Travelodge. The hotel reception area, restaurant and bedrooms have also been refurbished.
Hastings Travelodge will offer rooms from as little as £26, which is a 75% reduction from Cinique Ports room rates. You only pay for the room and not the number of guests staying (A family room caters for two adults and two children under the age of 16). With the Christmas holidays fast approaching, booking visiting family and friends at the Travelodge hotel, could avoid the additional stress and hassle at home for local residents.
There is a choice of rooms from family, double and disabled, each offering a comfortable setting with en-suite bathroom. Also included in each room is a luxury king-size bed, colour TV, pay on demand movies, telephone, Internet services and free tea and coffee making facilities.
The hotel has a Bar Café, which offers a range of meals and refreshments throughout the day and evening. (Breakfast, evening meals and snacks 24 hours a day and a bar service until 1.00am). The Bar Café is also open to non-staying guests.
The new hotel opening has created an additional ten new jobs, which includes:
Bar Café staff
Guest Room Cleaners

The opening of Hastings Travelodge has supported two charities, the first being Seaview, a local housing association, who have been given a range of furniture and kitchen equipment. The second charity to receive help has been the Asia Earthquake appeal, where a lorry full of donated bed linen, curtains and towels and been sent to help the victims in Kashmir.
Dave Jagga, Hastings Travelodge Hotel Manager said: "There is tremendous growth opportunity for budget accommodation in Hastings. My team and I look forward to welcoming former Cinique Port and new guests to try the Travelodge experience of a comfortable night sleep at a low cost. With rooms from £26 we offer fantastic value, ideal for a business or leisure stopover."
