New Travelodge opens in Dagenham

Tue 7 April 2020, 6:46 pm

Dagenhamís newest addition to its selection of hotels opened for business on a site near the much-anticipated Dagenham film studios.

The 78-room London Dagenham East Travelodge opened its doors in February, with Barking and Dagenham Council leader Darren Rodwell paying a visit to mark the occasion.

Rodwell was joined on his site visit by Paul Mathias, district manager for Travelodge, David Harley from the council’s regeneration arm Be First, as
well as Jonathan Carkeet from Berkeley Square Developments.

The hotel and a Costa Coffee drive-thru were built by Barnes Construction through a funding agreement with Berkeley Square Developments on behalf of Be First.

Mathias said: “The central location of this hotel will help attract more business and leisure visitors to the area which is great news for the local economy.”

Carkeet says the hotel development “has regenerated a key part of the former Sanofi facility to create new local employment opportunities, supports inward investment within the area and provides residents with new amenities.”
