TRAVELODGE OPENS £2 MILLION, 55 BED HOTEL IN MIDDLESBROUGH
4th Dec 2008
Vice Chair of Middlesbrough Council, Cllr Ron Lowes, today formally opened the brand new Travelodge on Newport Road, Middlesbrough.
The hotel, Travelodge's 353rd, represents a £2 million investment in Middlesbrough, has created 20 jobs and offers rates in its 55 bedrooms from just £19 a night.
Unique about this hotel is that it is the first that has been opened in a partnership with the budget hotel chain Aldi. The supermarket chain is the freeholder whilst Travelodge has taken out a longterm lease on the property.
The Middlesbrough hotel is styled in the company's new room design. Created in a contemporary style, incorporating a red, white and blue colour scheme, the new room is furnished with dark, rich tone furnishings and mood setting coloured lighting. Also included in the room is a digital flat screen TV and Wi-Fi. The rooms ensuite facilities have also been updated to reflect the new style.
Debbie Husband, Northern Regional Director for Travelodge, said:
"I am delighted that we have opened our first hotel in Middlesbrough and I expect it will not be our last.
There is a desperate need for lowcost accommodation in Middlesbrough and our new hotel will help to meet this demand. We sell rooms from as little as £19 per night, which is great value whether you are staying on business or on a leisure break".
