Travelodge is looking to open two new hotels in Cumbria.

The company has announced that it is currently interested in developing Travelodge hotels in the area, either on its own or as part of a mixed-use scheme.

The company is targeting new hotel sites in Ambleside and Ulverston

The company’s UK development director, Tony O’Brien said: “Our mission [is] to develop hundreds more Travelodge hotels across the UK, Ireland and Spain.

“During the last five years, we have opened over 80 new Travelodges throughout Great Britain.

“We are currently seeking development opportunities that could incorporate a new Travelodge hotel, either on its own or as part of a mixed-use scheme, and will consider new developments and conversions of existing buildings and hotels operated by other brands.”

Last year Travelodge opened 17 new hotels, in locations including Bristol, Kendal, Leicester, London, Mansfield, Poole, Rochdale, Sandwich, St Albans and Witney and is looking to open a similar number each year.

The company is asking interested parties that have details of a site or hotel in the North West which is available to be redeveloped as a Travelodge to contact the development managers for the North West and North Wales, Nick Howard on 07825559787 or Jeff Hocking on 07876675364.
