Travelodge has announced plans to build a 58-room hotel in The Mall shopping centre in Bromley, with hopes of opening by summer 2017.

The Bromley hotel is one of three Travelodges being built within shopping centres across the UK, creating 75 new jobs in total and giving a combined investment value of £22m.

Owned by Henry Boot Developments The Mall is home to Poundland, Iceland, Argos and Sports Direct amongst other shops.


Paul Harvey, Travelodge managing director for property said: "Building a Travelodge hotel in a shopping centre is a win-win solution.

"It helps shopping centre owners to add value, generate additional income and increase football by developing underused assets such as: empty office space, the top of low rise buildings and car parks.

"Our customers benefit by being located in a desired quality location with a host of shops and restaurants on their door step."
