New Lincoln Travelodge opens to first guests

The new 127 room Lincoln city centre Travelodge budget hotel has officially opened its doors.

As previously reported, works began in November 2017 to build a brand new five-storey Travelodge on Tentercroft Street – the second in Lincoln.

It’s located close to the new transport hub and offers 22 dedicated parking spaces.

Prices start at £29.

Works were ahead of schedule in July and the hotel is now fully operational and open for business from today.

The building was bought by the City of Lincoln Council for £13 million in March and will be leased to the company by the council for 25 years. 

There is an option for this to be extended by another 25 years.

York based construction company S Harrison completed the build and spoke to us at the time of construction. David Clancy, development director of S Harrison said: “Lincoln is a fascinating cathedral city that attracts plenty of tourists, and it is also a great place to do business.

“It’s an incredibly exciting time for Lincoln with such major investment in this central area in particular, and we are proud to play our part in helping to bring Travelodge to the city.”
