Travelodge goes nice and simple – less quinoa, more sausages anyone?

Travelodge Hotels has undergone a brand-wide refresh that promises to keep things ‘refreshingly simple’. They won me at the mention of sausage actually, but I really like this idea. Less fuss, simple meals (yay – a menu that is quinoa and kale-free!) and basic creature comforts like a strong hot shower – one that doesn’t need a manual to operate the taps.

The hotel chain promises a down to earth attitude and an honest sense of humour in its refresh. A conveniently located hotel, without all the unnecessary extras, but with all the parts that make it a comfortable and practical place to stay, from the hearty new breakfast offering, to the standard 11am check-out time, comfy beds, kitchenettes and strong hot showers.

One of Travelodge Hotels’ key offerings is that the hotels are positioned in some of Australia and New Zealand’s most convenient central locations, and with new, stylish touches in-room, open lobbies, and Wi-Fi or internet access throughout, the hotels are great for business travellers looking to set up office.

Guests are encouraged to go online and book directly, there are no booking fees, best rates guaranteed, value-added benefits and earned incentives.

And as of this month, following the age-old tradition of Tight Arse Tuesdays, every Tuesday is now known as Chooseday at Travelodge Hotels. If you book online on on any Tuesday you can select from a number of great extras for free, adding to that ‘just the way you like it’ promise. Whether you’d like 2 for 1 breakfast, unlimited free WiFi, a late check-out or 2 for 1 drinks, Travelodge want to personalise your stay and make it more about you.

TFE Hotels Group Director of Marketing, Emma Fraser said, “We want our guests to feel like they created the space themselves, with more of what they want, and less of the things that seem completely pointless.

“A shower that is just a shower, without the six-body massage jets that flood the bathroom floor. A breakfast that is just that, a break in the fast – with less quinoa and more sausages. Less fuss, and more of what we actually want.  It’s Refreshingly Simple.”

Travelodge Hotels in 17 locations (Australia and New Zealand). Other locations coming soon include Travelodge Sydney Airport (2017). More information and bookings:

  1. Wow – D is always planning an Australian/New Zealand trip somewhere. I can’t remember the last time we stayed in a Travelodge but maybe it is time we had another look at them.
