Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge spokeswoman, said: “We are delighted to re-open Gainsborough 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.

"With safety at the forefront of our business, we have worked closely with our hotel teams that stayed open during the lockdown, government and industry bodies to develop our new Covid 19 safety programme called TravelodgeProtect+.

"This safety programme is designed to keep our customers and teams safe and has been implemented into all Travelodge hotels.”

TravelodgeProtect+ has been developed by a dedicated cross-functional hygiene strategy team and will become the way Travelodge operates going forward.

During the lockdown, Travelodge kept 62 hotels open across the UK from Plymouth to Aberdeen to support key workers, vulnerable groups and local authorities.

In addition, as hotels are not allowed to currently operate their restaurants or serve a hot breakfast buffet, Travelodge has launched a new version of its popular breakfast box that customers can purchase from their hotel reception desk or online at just £5.25.

The new ‘Breakfast To Go Box’ will ensure Travelodge customers can still continue to kick start their day with a tasty breakfast and enjoy complimentary tea and coffee in their room.
