Travelodge, the UK’s first budget hotel chain, is supporting the Cardiff community by keeping its Cardiff Central hotel open during the Covid-19 lockdown, to provide accommodation to critical workers and vulnerable groups

during these unprecedented times.


The hotel chain is currently operating just under 50 hotels across the UK from Plymouth to Aberdeen. This includes 20 Travelodge hotels close to major hospitals, including the new Nightingale hospital to support NHS workers.


In addition the company is supporting around 30 local councils around the country by providing accommodation for the less vulnerable.


In Cardiff, Travelodge is operating its Cardiff Central hotel, located at Imperial Gate, St. Mary’s Street, Cardiff, CF10 1FA.


Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge, Spokeswoman said: In these unprecedented times, our hotel teams across the UK are working enormously hard, under great pressure, to support the national efforts. We have hotels open from Aberdeen to Plymouth, providing accommodation for critical workers and other groups. This includes 20 hotels close to major hospitals such as our Cardiff Central Travelodge which is our closest hotel to Cardiff Royal Infirmary.”


“We are reviewing daily which hotels are best positioned to support the needs that arise with the government while ensuring we comply with the restrictions in place to protect the public.”


Travelodge, in common with all UK hotel operators has been obliged to temporarily close the majority of its hotels and is currently operating just under 50 hotels in critical locations to support critical workers and local authorities in the fight against covid-19.
