One of the UK’s leading budget hotel chains, Travelodge, has officially opened its second and largest hotel in Kings Lynn.
The 68-room hotel, which is situated at Hardwick Business Retail Park, represents an investment of £5 million for the landlord and has created 15 new jobs within the local community.
Kings Lynn Travelodge, which is the company’s 544th hotel, was officially opened by the Mayor of Kings Lynn, Councillor David Whitby and Travelodge People Director, Hannah Thomson who was born and raised in Kings Lynn. Hannah lived on South Everard Street and attended Whitefriars Primary School.
Norfolk’s eighth Travelodge hotel has been designed in the company’s new contemporary brand design and features the new upgraded room concept and bespoke luxurious king-size Travelodge Dreamer bed.
At the opening event, Travelodge, also announced that the Norfolk economy is growing at pace and with increasing visitor numbers to the area, there is still a shortage of good quality accommodation at a great value price. Therefore to meet this growing consumer demand it is looking for new hotel sites in Wisbech and Cromer. These two hotel openings could create around 30 new jobs within the local community.
As part of its investment within the local area, Travelodge recently opened its first hotel in Thetford and has spent £100,000 upgrading its six other hotels in Norfolk in line with the company’s new contemporary brand design.
Kings Lynn Travelodge is being managed by Keith Sturman and a 15-strong team.
