Travelodge is accelerating its hotel reopening programme and is fast-tracking the reopening of a further 100 UK hotels this week - to include Ryde Travelodge.
The reopening of the Ryde hotel marks the company’s halfway milestone of reopening its estate of 573 UK hotels. The company says it will continue to reopen around 100 hotels per week.
The company has invested in a multi-million pound Covid-19 safety and social distance programme called Travelodge Protect + which will feature at Ryde Isle of Wight Travelodge.
During the lockdown, Travelodge kept 62 hotels open across the UK from Plymouth to Aberdeen to support key / critical workers, vulnerable groups and local authorities.
Travelodge has taken its key learnings whilst operating in the lockdown and launched TravelodgeProtect+ a programme of cleaning and social distancing measures in line with Government guidance - designed to keep its customers and teams save and protected post lockdown.
TravelodgeProtect+ has been developed by a dedicated cross-functional hygiene strategy team and will become the way Travelodge operates going forward.
Travelodge spokeswoman, Shakila Ahmed, said:
“We are delighted to reach the halfway milestone in our hotel reopening programme with the reopening of our Ryde Isle of Wight Travelodge.
"The hotel is open for business from this week and the team are set for a busy summer season as we welcome customers back."
