Construction of six new Travelodge hotels at a cost of £41.5 million is starting today (Tuesday).
The development will create 500 new jobs, splits between 405 construction workers and 95 hotel positions.
The six properties, which will provide a total of 579 rooms, will boost the budget chain's portfolio to 517 hotels and 38,359 rooms.
The hotels are being built in Glasgow, Greenwich, Raynes Park, Ryde on the Isle of Wight, Southampton and Winnersh in Berkshire.
The expansion is part of a £223 million brand investment which includes refitting 153 hotels to date.
Travelodge managing director for property Paul Harvey said: “We are very excited to be starting on site to build six hotels today in prime locations across the UK.
“They will be a great addition to the Travelodge portfolio and offer consumers more choice for good value accommodation.
“All of these six hotels are scheduled to open throughout next year and we are hopeful that our Glasgow hotel, which is our largest hotel in the city, will be ready for the Commonwealth Games.”
