Construction is ongoing for a new Travelodge in Gosport High Street, a £5m development for a 54-bedroom hotel approved by the council in 2017, creating 24 new jobs.

But now, official confirmation has been given that the hotel will be coming in the new year.

‘We are looking for the Travelodge to open at the end of February,’ a spokesman told The News.

Councillors who approved the plans two years ago hope the site will encourage more people to visit Gosport and explore the town’s heritage.

An exact date for the hotel’s opening has not yet been set.
