Travelodge has taken a lease to operate the Holiday Inn Express hotel at Liverpool John Lennon Airport from Peel Land and Property Group.

The hotel now trades as Travelodge Liverpool John Lennon Airport. It has 100 rooms, a bar café, three meeting rooms and on-site car-parking. The hotel sits minutes away from the airport and the New Mersey Speke Shopping Park. It is the company’s 549th hotel and its 14th property in Merseyside.

Peel Land and Property Group was the owner and operator of the Holiday Inn Express under a franchise agreement and it has now granted a 25-year lease to Travelodge and is also investing to convert the hotel into Travelodge’s new contemporary brand design.

The refurbishment is expected to be completed by the end of this year and the hotel will operate as normal during these works.

Tony O Brien, Travelodge Property Director, said: “We are delighted to have secured our fourteenth hotel in Merseyside at the prestigious location, Liverpool John Lennon Airport. The local economy is growing at pace and with increasing visitor numbers to the area, there is a big shortage of good quality accommodation at a great value price. With our new airport hotel, we are offering unbeatable value at all the key business and leisure points across the city.”

Following a £2m investment in upgrading the customer experience and raising quality levels across all Merseyside Travelodge hotels, the company has seen a significant rise in sales; interestingly, with more business customers staying at Travelodge than ever before.
