Travelodge is looking to open new hotels in Oxfordshire.

The company has announced that it is currently interested in developing Travelodge hotels, either on their own or as part of a mixed-use scheme, in the county.

The company is targeting a new hotel in Oxford's city centre near the New Theatre.

It is also looking at sites in Didcot, Henley-on-Thames and Banbury.

“Our mission [is] to develop hundreds more Travelodge hotels across the UK, Ireland and Spain,” said the company’s UK development director, Tony O’Brien.

“During the last five years, we have opened over 80 new Travelodges throughout Great Britain.

“We are currently seeking development opportunities that could incorporate a new Travelodge hotel, either on its own or as part of a mixed-use scheme, and will consider new developments and conversions of existing buildings and hotels operated by other brands.”

Last year Travelodge opened 17 new hotels, in locations including Bristol, Kendal, Leicester, London, Mansfield, Poole, Rochdale, Sandwich, St Albans and Witney and is looking to open a similar number each year.

The company is asking interested parties that have details of a site or hotel in Pembrokeshire that is available to be redeveloped as a Travelodge to contact the development manager for the Midlands Andy Silverwood on 07770 652558 or

“The DM’s will be delighted to consider any opportunities within their areas,” added Mr O’Brien.
