This latest investment will create 150 new jobs within the region and boost the local economy annually by £11m.
“Hertfordshire is one of our top performing counties within the UK, with demand growing at great pace for good quality branded budget hotel rooms from business and leisure travelers,” said Travelodge’s UK development director Tony O’Brien.
“We are excited about the growth opportunities in Hertfordshire and hope to be able to announce more details soon about specific sites.”
Travelodge is looking for new sites in the following locations:
- Potters Bar
- St Albans
- Welwyn Garden City
Travelodge currently has nine hotels in the Hertfordshire area and employs over 100 staff members.
One of those hotels, Watford Central, recently became one of the first of 500 hotels from the Travelodge estate to benefit from a major refurbishment - part of a company-wide brand investment of £223m this year.
