Travelodge, Scotland’s budget hotel chain celebrates its 35th milestone birthday by opening its first hotel in Elgin – which is also the company’s most northern point hotel.
Elgin Travelodge is the company’s 592nd hotel and its 47th property in Scotland. It represents a multimillion investment for third party investors.
The purpose-built hotel is located at Elgin Gateway Business Park, close to the county of Moray and the world-famous whiskey region of Spreyside.
Elgin Travelodge features 61-rooms which includes SuperRooms, the company’s premium economy room concept. This new class of room is designed around the ‘premium economy’ concept familiar to airline users. It dials up the comfort factor for business and leisure customers who want the extra choice of a more premium room.
The hotel also features an on-site restaurant, called the Bar-Café which offers a breakfast, dinner and bar service menu and there is complementary on-site car parking too.
Elgin Travelodge also features the company’s new multimillion-pound Covid-19 safety and social distance programme, called TravelodgeProtect+.
Ann Howie, Hotel Manager, Elgin Travelodge, said:
I am honoured to be managing Elgin Travelodge which is not only the town’s first Travelodge hotel but it is also our most northern point hotel within the estate. Opening a new hotel is very stressful at any time but during a pandemic it goes up a good ten notches. However I am delighted to have built a fantastic team who are as passionate as me about delivering great customer service and together we have overcome the hurdles. Our multi-million Covid-19 safety programme, TravelodgeProtect+ which is designed to keep our customers and teams safe sits at the heart of our business and has been very well received by our customers.
