Travelodge has provided an update on its London developments, with a total of four properties now being built.

The group recently started construction of its 113-room Chsiwick hotel, which was announced last year and is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2025.

It will be located next to Chiswick Roundabout and Chiswick Flyover, and around 400 metres from Chiswick Business Park.

Meanwhile construction continues at Travelodge’s 95-room property at the Kia Oval Cricket Ground in Kennington – in partnership with Surrey County Cricket Club – as well as the group’s 73-room hotel in Bermondsey, and the 72-room property in Beckenham.

The four developments will bring Travelodge’s London portfolio to 84 operating hotels. The group says that it has a dedicated team in “to secure a further 100 sites across the Capital”.

Commenting on the news Steve Bennett, Travelodge, chief property and development officer, said:

“We are delighted to be expanding our London hotel network with the construction of our first hotel in Chiswick.

“The new Travelodge will be in a fantastic location on Chiswick High Road, 400m from Gunnersbury underground and railway line, 450m from Chiswick Business Park and within easy walking distance of the Gtech Community Stadium, home of Brentford FC; so a great place for business and leisure customers to stay, either visiting the local area, or Central London.

“With over 80 Travelodges in London, we now operate in 31 out the 33 London boroughs and are one of London’s biggest hotel chains. We are currently building four more new London hotels, including our 600th Travelodge at the Kia Oval Cricket Ground, but we still have room for further growth in London.

“Nowadays, more Britons are choosing to stay in a budget hotel than any other hotel type, but London cannot fulfil this growing trend as it has a shortage of good quality and low cost accommodation.

“Therefore, to help fill this growing gap, we are actively searching for over 100 new hotel sites across the Capital. This London expansion programme could collectively represent a multi-billion pound investment for third party investors and create thousands of new jobs.”
