Travelodge opens second hotel in Wembley

The new hotel offers 86 rooms and 20 new jobs within the local community

Travelodge has unveiled its new hotel in Wembley - the second for the area.

The hotel - the 62nd in the capital - was opened on Tuesday (March 31) after a £6.5m investment, built above Wembley Central train station in partnership with St Modwen.

An opening ceremony was held at Travelodge with Barry Gardiner, local MP for Brent North and the Mayor of Brent, Cllr Kana Naheerathan, joining Tom Edwards, Travelodge's Revenue Director to officially open the hotel.

Tom Edwards said: “We have experienced growing demand for good value accommodation in Wembley for some time and we are delighted to open our second Wembley hotel in such a prestigious location.

“Being located at Wembley Central train station provides our customers with easy access to Wembley stadium and to central London.”

The opening is the company's 518th hotel and has created 20 jobs, employed via Travelodge's long-term relationship with the Job Centre, helping the long-term unemployed get back into work.

Travelodge opened its first Wembley hotel in 2006 and as part of its ongoing commitment to grow its business within the area, the hotel has also invested £1.1m to modernise this hotel.

Jessica Jackson, London Wembley High Road Travelodge Hotel Manager, said: “I am thrilled to be managing this brand new Travelodge hotel in the centre of Wembley.

"The hotel has got off to a flying start and we are nearly full for the big events happening at Wembley Stadium over the coming months.”
