A budget hotel in Hastings will be opening its doors this Thursday (July 16).

The Hastings Travelodge, in Bohemia Road, has been closed since March when lockdown was imposed because of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The hotel chain, which operates 573 hotels across the UK, said it has invested in a new Covid-19 safety and social distance programme called Travelodge Protect +.

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

The new programme includes cleaning throughout its hotels using an antiviral disinfectant, additional post clean room checks with digital tracking, increased cleaning frequency in high touch points in public areas and rooms, all linen and towels thermally disinfected, training of staff on cleaning, hygiene and social distancing, and installation of customer hand sanitiser stations in key locations in the hotel.

Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge spokeswoman, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming customers back to our Travelodge hotels and excited to be reopening Hastings Travelodge.

“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 Travelodge Protect +.

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

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 breakfast box that customers can buy from their hotel reception desk or online.
