Berwick’s Travelodge is set to undergo an extensive makeover to the tune of £160,000.
The work at the 40-room North Road hotel, which opened in 2004, is part of a company wide refurbishment programme designed to grow the business, strengthen the brand and make Travelodge the UK’s favourite hotel brand for value.
The hotel will be completely fitted out in a new modern, fresh Travelodge design.
This includes a new room design which has been created by Travelodge customers and includes a bespoke luxury king size bed called the Travelodge Dreamer - which is deemed in the industry as the Rolls Royce of beds and is usually found in luxury hotels.
The room also features a sleep inducing colour palette in a tranquil blue and cream, as well as stylish swoosh stripes on the curtains and bed runner. Other additions in the new Travelodge room include a larger desk, new carpet, artwork above the bed and a stylish white contemporary en-suite bathroom.
Travelodge chief executive Peter Gowers said: “2014 marks the next stage on our journey to build a new Travelodge that is Britain’s favourite hotel for value.
“During the last year we modernised more than 200 of our hotels across the country and we are on schedule to transform the majority of our portfolio by this autumn, with our hotel in Berwick-upon-Tweed a part of that.”
The hotel chain is also announcing an investment of £100 million into its business this year, which will see the company open 15 new hotels and create 1,000 new jobs this year.
