Travelodge is continuing its UK expansion with by announcing three new budget hotels in Manchester and Edinburgh, as part of a £50 million programme that includes a total of ten new properties.
Samsung Electronics Europe, the leader in flat panel televisions, has today announced the findings of a new research project looking at consumer spending habits in hotels across Europe. The research examines the factors that matter most to guests when booking a hotel room and demonstrates that the recession has led to a renewed focus on quality of experience as well as cost – making Europe’s budget hotels ideally placed to prosper during the downturn.
European travellers are shunning five-star hotels for budget properties, according to a new survey. Almost 40% of those polled said they were becoming “less convinced” about the added value of premium properties. And 29% said they considered staying in a budget hotel to be “a great experience”.
