Work starts on sustainable West London Travelodge

Travelodge has begun construction of its London Chiswick Travelodge, which is expected to be completed in the first three months of 2025.

The development includes a number of sustainable initiatives, such as the new carpet being made from recycled fishing nets and the carpet backing is also made of old plastic bottles.

Other green features include low energy lighting, motion sensing controls and aerated showers and taps. 

London Chiswick Travelodge is being developed to the group’s new, premium look and feel design specification and will be built to BREEAM “Excellent” standards and with an EPC rating of “A”.   

The 113-room hotel, located next to the Chiswick Roundabout, will feature the group’s on-site restaurant.

It is the company’s fourth hotel currently under construction in London.

The other three sites include the group’s 600th Travelodge, a 95-room hotel at the Kia Oval Cricket Ground (in partnership with Surrey County Cricket Club); a 73-room hotel in Bermondsey and a 72-room hotel in Beckenham.

Steve Bennett, Travelodge, Chief Property & Development Officer, said: “Nowadays, more Britons are choosing to stay in a budget hotel than any other hotel type, but London cannot fulfil this growing trend as it has a shortage of good quality and low cost accommodation. 

“Therefore, to help fill this growing gap, we are actively  searching for over 100 new hotel sites across the Capital. This London expansion programme could collectively represent a multi-billion pound investment for third party investors and create thousands of new jobs.”
