Intu Lakeside leases hotel space to Travelodge

The Intu Lakeside shopping centre has signed an agreement to let space to Travelodge for a new 74-room hotel.

The five-storey hotel is to be built on land at one end of Alexandra Lake which is a three-minute walk from the shopping centre. The ground floor, which could accommodate a restaurant, will be let separately by Intu.

Neil Short, Travelodge development manager, said: “We are delighted to be opening a newTravelodge hotel at one of Europe’s biggest shopping centres. With all of Intu Lakeside’s fantastic retail, leisure and restaurant facilities on the hotel’s doorstep, this will be a superb place for our business and leisure customers to stay and will enable us to offer the best value accommodation in the area.”  

As well as the new hotel, plans are also ongoing for the construction of a new £100 million leisure quarter at the shopping centre, which will see the arrival of further catering names, as well as family entertainment venues and health and fitness facilities. The overall investment at Intu Lakeside is part of the shopping centre operator's £1.3 billion development pipeline over 10 years.

Julian Wilkinson, regional director of Intu, said: “For business people and families looking for a conveniently located hotel, the new Travelodge at Intu Lakeside will be perfect. Just two miles from the M25 motorway, by a railway station with fast direct trains from London, and next to all the dining and retail attractions of the shopping centre, we think the hotel is certain to do well.”
