About Travelodge

One of the UK's leading hotel brands, Travelodge was the first budget hotel brand to launch in the UK in 1985, when it opened on the A38, in Barton under Needlewood.

Since those early days, Travelodge has undergone a radical transformation, opening more than 500 hotels (over 37,000 rooms), and moving from being a roadside hotel chain to become one of the UK's largest, fastest growing and most highly recognised budget hotel brands.

More than 16.5 million people stayed with Travelodge last year and 90% of reservations are currently made through Travelodge.co.uk which is the UK's most visited hotel website, attracting over 1.1 million visits each week.

Travelodge is the smart choice for leisure and business travellers, consistently offering them great value hotels in locations where they want to stay.

More than 80% of Travelodge hotels are located in major city centres, towns and popular holiday hotspots. The Travelodge brand has a range of hotel designs including: purpose built hotels, grade ll listed buildings, office conversions, acquisitions of existing hotels and co-partnerships with leading pub companies, supermarkets and retailers.
