POSH BOSS, KEITH ALEXANDER, RODNEY HICKS AND JAMES GHAICHEM OFFICALLY OPEN NEW £3.1 MILLION TRAVELODGE HOTEL

10th Nov 2006


Today, Keith Alexander, manager of "The Posh", Rodney Hicks and James Ghaichem officially opened the new Peterborough Central Travelodge, which is the first branded budget hotel to open in the city centre.

The 3.1 million hotel has 79-rooms and has created 20 new jobs within the area. It is located at New Road, Peterborough, PE1 1QF and will be the third Travelodge hotel within the city.

Joining the Posh Boss and players were Deputy Mayor, Marion Todd and pupils from Bishop Creighton Primary School. To mark the opening of Peterborough Central Travelodge, Year five were set a class project of drawing their "Dream bedroom". The Deputy Mayor selected the winning picture, which was drawn by Amy Pragnell aged 10 years.

Amy won a weekend stay at a UK Travelodge hotel of her choice for her family and her picture will be hung in the hotel reception area. All participating children were awarded a goodie bag.

Matthew Greener, Peterborough Central Travelodge's Manager, said: "We have seen tremendous growth in budget accommodation within the Peterborough area. Our new hotel is centrally located for visiting business and leisure travellers. Local residents can also benefit by putting up family and friends at the hotel to avoid the additional stress at home. We offer a comfortable room from as little as 15, which is the smart choice for any type of stop-over."

Peterborough Central Travelodge will offer a choice of either Family, Double or Disabled rooms. Each room provides a comfortable setting with en-suite bathroom, luxury king size bed, colour TV and free tea and coffee making facilities."

Locations include Caterham Whyteleafe, Stanstead Airport (Great Dunmow), Romford Central, Barnstaple, Ludlow, Hatfield Central, Kendal, Birmingham Maypole (City centre), Ayr, Manchester Trafford Park, Hereford, Camberley, Croydon, Watford city centre, Birmingham Five Ways and Sheffield City Centre
