Press releases


7th May 2008

Today, local school girl, Lois Briley and the Mayor of Carlisle Councillor Elizabeth Mallinson officially opened Carlisle Central Travelodge. The 66-room hotel represents a 3.3 million investment in the town, creating 15 new jobs. Situated on Cecil Street, Carlisle, CA1 1NL in the converted telephone exchange building, the new Travelodge will offer rooms from 29 per night.

To celebrate the official opening of the hotel, pupils from Brooke Street Primary School were set a project of drawing their "dream bedroom". The Mayor of Carlisle Councillor Elizabeth Mallinson selected the winning picture, drawn by Lois Briley aged 8 years.

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

Douglas Walker, Carlisle Central Travelodge's Hotel Manager said: "There is a desperate need for low cost accommodation in Carlisle and our new hotel will help to meet this demand. We sell rooms from as little as 29 per night and our location is perfect whether meeting on business or on a leisure trip with friends".

Mayor of Carlisle Councillor Elizabeth Mallinson said: "I would like to wish Carlisle Central Travelodge every success for the future on behalf of Carlisle Council. This new hotel will fill a real local need for budget accommodation and I am thrilled that it has created so many new jobs".

The hotel will offer a choice of either family, double or single rooms, each providing an en-suite bathroom, luxury king size bed, digital flat screen TV, Wi-Fi and free tea and coffee making facilities. The best deals can be found via
