New Lincoln Travelodge to open later this year

The development company behind a new city centre hotel in Lincoln has announced that work is currently ahead of schedule and on budget.

York-based S Harrison awarded the build contract for the new Travelodge to R G Carter, and the work is due to complete by November.

The Lincoln Travelodge is due to open by the end of the year and is located on Tentercroft Street in the heart of the city.

There will be 127 bedrooms and 22 dedicated car parking spaces. Mainly constructed from red and buff brickwork with recessed grey aluminium window frames, the ground floor of the hotel will also incorporate a reception, breakfast area, café, bar, seating area, kitchens and storage areas.

S Harrison recently sold the hotel, which will be operated by Travelodge Hotels Limited on a 25 year lease, to City of Lincoln Council for £13 million.

Andrew Wharton, from S Harrison, said: “We’ve just completed the main structure of the building which was a major milestone for everyone involved.

“We have been very impressed with R G Carter, the firm has dedicated almost 30,000 man hours to the project already and the quality of the work to date has been outstanding.”
