Video: Travelodge poetry winners at opening

HORSHAM Central Travelodge officially opened on Tuesday, representing a £2.5m investment in the town, and creating 20 new jobs.

Located in Worthing Road, on the former site of the Black Horse Hotel between the bus station and Shelley Fountain, the hotel offers 67 rooms from just £19 per night.

The Horsham Central Travelodge was officially opened yesterday at a special event attended by senior Travelodge managers, the County Times poetry competition finalists, and its editor in chief Gary Shipton – who along with 12-year-old Georgina Easterbrook – Horsham’s Sleeping Poet and competition winner – had the honour of cutting the red ribbon.

This is the budget hotel chain’s 460th opening to date, but many more are planned by the UK’s fastest growing hotel chain.

Sussex is a key target area for growth for new Travelodge hotels, and will form part of the groups ambitious target of having 1,100 hotels and 100,000 rooms by 2025.
