Scheme Design

We’ve produced a handy checklist of the issues that must be taken into account when designing a new Travelodge, which can be found in our dedicated Scheme Design section.


BREEAM (BRE Environmental Assessment Method) is the leading and most widely-used environmental assessment method for buildings. It has become the de facto measure used to describe a building’s environmental performance. For more information about environmental assessments and how they relate to new Travelodge developments, visit our BREEAM section.

EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) is also a leading sustainability assessment for existing and new builds. For more information about EPC Assessments and how they relate to Travelodge please visit our EPC section.

Planning Applications

Nick Jenkins of Smith Jenkins is retained by Travelodge to provide planning consultancy advice in connection with all of Travelodge’s development projects. For more details about how Nick and Travelodge can support a planning application through to a successful approval visit our Planning Applications section.

Room Types

All Travelodge hotels have three standard bedroom types. To see the minimum internal dimensions, read about our policy regarding non-standard rooms and download specifications for each room type, visit our Room Types section.

Floor Plans

Travelodge does not have a standard footprint, nor a minimum or maximum number of bedrooms per floor. To read more details about our requirement and to see example floor plans from existing developments, visit our Floor Plans section.
