In 1985, Travelodge became Britainâ€™s first value hotel brand when it launched in the UK, opening its first hotel at Barton under Needwood in the heart of England. It is now the UKâ€™s largest independent hotel brand, with more than 560 hotels and 40,000 guest bedrooms, right across the UK as well as in Ireland and Spain. Travelodge aims to become the favourite hotel for value. We seek to offer unbeatable value in leisure and business travel. With attractive modern bedrooms, comfy new king size beds and great value wherever you need to be: weâ€™re the Travelodgical choice.
