Edinburgh Central Princes Street Travelodge is now open in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Travelodge Hotels Inc, a US-based company that owns and operates hotel properties, has developed the hotel, which is located above the Topshop store in the Princes Street area of Edinburgh.
The new hotel has been constructed with an investment of £10m, and has 96 rooms.
The company has also opened the 85-room, Edinburgh Central Queen Street Travelodge hotel, on Queens Street, Edinburgh. The hotel is the product of a GBP8.5m investment, and the two new hotels are expected to provide 40 new jobs in the area.
The room rates for the hotels commence from GBP19 per night, with additional amenities to be paid for as required.
Paul Harvey, the managing director of Travelodge, said, ‘As Edinburgh largest retailer we are delighted to be opening a further two new hotels in the city centre. Since 2008, we have invested £64 million into Edinburgh and today we have 13 great hotels across the city. By offering rooms from £19 we are making Scotland’s capital more accessible to business and leisure customers.
With over 16 million people annually visiting Scotland, the need for good quality low cost accommodation is in great demand and our objective now is to grow our properties in other key areas across Scotland. To fulfil this need we are working with our retained property agents, Sandy Cameron & Co, to find new sites.
This autumn we are opening a 60-room hotel in Fort William and I am delighted to announce that we have just exchanged on a new property in Glasgow city centre.’
