Manchester to get new Travelodge hotels

Two new Travelodge hotels are set to open in Greater Manchester following a £9 million investment.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the hotels will be in Sale and Stockport and form part of a major planned expansion throughout the region by the independent hotel chain.

The deal comes after bosses exchanged contracts with Orbit Developments for hotels in Sale and Stockport.

The Stockport hotel on Heaton Lane will have 86-rooms and occupy part of Regent House in the town centre. It will also include a Bar Café. The Sale hotel will be created by converting an existing four-story 1980s office building into a 67-room hotel with a Bar Café and 75 on-site parking lot.

Planning applications have been submitted, with both hotels expected to open towards the end of 2016.

Travelodge is reportedly looking to open seven more hotels in Greater Manchester, representing an investment of​ ​£35 million.
