Mayor of Marlow, councillor Richard Scott joined Tony O’ Brien, Travelodge UK development director at the opening of the property, which is the company’s 584th hotel and it’s eighth in Buckinghamshire.
The purpose built, 83-room hotel which features an onsite restaurant called the Bar Café and a car park, is located in the Globe Business Park. The opening represents an investment value of approximately £11m for the landlord and was built by Barnes Construction on behalf of a major UK pension fund. The new hotel opening has also created 22 new jobs within the community.
Tony O’Brien, Travelodge UK development director, said: “We have been trading in Buckinghamshire for 21 years and we are delighted to mark this milestone by bringing our new budget chic Travelodge Plus hotel concept to Marlow.
“Our new hotel format is designed around the needs of the budget traveller who wants that little bit more style and choice whilst staying true to our mission to offer great value.”
He added: “As we look to the future, Buckinghamshire remains a key potential development area for us. The local economy is growing at pace with increasing visitor numbers, however there is still a shortage of good quality accommodation at a great value price.”
