The two hotels, which are located in Beckton and Dagenham, represent an investment of £22m by third party investors and have created a combined 55 new jobs.
London Beckton Travelodge, a 113-room hotel is the group’s first hotel in Beckton. It represents a multi-million investment by the landlord, SEGRO, and has created 35 new jobs.
Travelodge said the new hotel is a “key part” of the recently completed SEGRO Park Newham, a former landfill site that has not been utilised for over 40 years.

With these two new hotel openings, Travelodge has opened 10 hotels in London in the last three years and created 320 new jobs. This includes the company’s new build 395-room flagship hotel, London City Travelodge Plus hotel. These 10 hotel openings represent an investment of approximately £200m by third party investors.
