Work is starting on a £7.5m, 80 bed new Travelodge hotel at Monks Cross which is set to complete in November this year.
Max Reeves, development director at Helmsley Group, comments: “This positive investment from a major hotel brand is another strong endorsement for the city of York”.
We are delighted to be welcoming Travelodge, which will add to an extensive range of facilities now available for both residents and commercial occupiers at Monks Cross”.
“This scheme, along with the major refurbishment of Arabesque House nearby, will create fresh employment for the area. We’re looking forward to seeing both projects come to life.”
