    Travelodge has recently announced that it will be adding an additional nine rooms to its Aberdeen Central Justice Mill Lane Travelodge hotel (which currently has 119 rooms), by converting an adjacent, vacant retail unit. To help to meet the growing demand for good quality, low cost budget accommodation in the city, in addition to these extra rooms, Travelodge is also actively looking for its fifth hotel in Aberdeen, after revising its target location list.

    This announcement comes on the back of Travelodge’s commitment to invest over £500,000 refurbishing its existing four hotels in Aberdeen.

    Both Aberdeen Airport and Aberdeen Central Justice Mill Lane Travelodge hotels received a complete brand refurbishment toward the end of 2012, which incorporated the new Travelodge room design, which has been created by the hotel chain’s customers. This saw all bedrooms receive new Travelodge Dreamer beds, which are deemed in the industry as the Rolls Royce of beds.

    Aberdeen Bucksburn and Aberdeen Central Travelodge hotels will undergo their refurbishments in March this year.

    The extension at Aberdeen Central Justice Mill Lane Travelodge hotel will create 20 construction jobs and building work is expected to take nine weeks beginning in Spring of this year. The hotel will remain open for business during this period.

    Tony O’Brien, UK Development Director for Travelodge Hotels, said:

    “The demand for good quality, low cost accommodation is growing at great pace in Aberdeen and, as a result, the city has become one of the strongest performing hotel markets in the country. So, we are delighted to be adding additional rooms to our Justice Mill Lane Travelodge hotel and looking for a new hotel site.

    “Our retained Scottish agent, Sandy Cameron & Co, is actively looking for a suitable location in Aberdeen, so that we can boost our portfolio to five hotels in the city.”
