Travelodge has Colchester town centre in its sights
3:00pm Wednesday 30th January 2013 in News
A BUDGET hotel is still hoping to open a branch in Colchester even though the town has been left of its plans for this year.
It is understood Travelodge has earmarked space to build a 90-bedroom hotel at the heart of regeneration scheme in St Botolph’s Quarter.
But the site has been left off a list of 12 new UK hotels due to open in 2013.
A spokesman for Travelodge said: “We are still in negotiations with people in Colchester, but we are not in a position to say where our plans are build.
“Colchester is very much on our list and we want to be in the town centre.”
