Bryn Taylor, Travelodge Regional Director for South East: “North London is a key growth area for Travelodge, as there is a big shortage of branded hotels and customers are crying out for more good quality and low-cost places to stay at across the region.
“Therefore to meet this growing demand we are actively looking for 11 new hotel sites across North London. This investment will also create great career opportunities within the community and boost the local economy, as our research shows Travelodge customers will annually spend around £2m with local businesses during their stay.”
