Travelodge Hurstville Brings 'Refreshing Simple' Mantra to Sydney's South

AUSTRALIA: Sydney’s busy southern corridor will boast a brand-new Travelodge Hotel today, the very first international hotel chain to open in Hurstville’s bustling business district.

Developed by the Illawarra Catholic Club and operated by TFE Hotels, the 124-room Travelodge which sits adjacent to the club, features a new design direction for the interiors by Chada, complete with a natural colour palette and plenty of greenery; Above 8 - a rooftop bar and restaurant with a vergola and unobstructed views to Bowral, Botany and Mittagong; a ground floor St Marks Road Co. grab ‘n go; and the largest corporate function space outside of Sydney’s CBD.

TFE Hotels’ Group Chief Operating Officer, Chris Sedgwick said Travelodge Hurstville would not only deliver great value accommodation options for locals and visitors alike but would also deliver long-term economic benefits to the Club and the community.

“Our Travelodges are always situated in great locations and typically offer a refreshingly simple customer service philosophy he said. “This rings true for Travelodge Hurstville which, in addition to the Club offerings and hotel amenities, also gives guests the option to host large-scale meetings and events at Club Central and within striking distance of the CBD, plus multi-functional communal spaces for those impromptu meetings and gatherings.”

Sedgwick says the hotel will hold wide appeal to leisure travellers visiting the southern corridor, those with friends or relatives in hospital, or weekend warriors wanting to explore the nearby Royal National Park or eastern coastline.

“I think our Travelodge guests will be pleasantly surprised by the new design direction and by how inviting the rooms are to be in,” he said.  “This hotel offers smart, functional design - with particular attention paid to spatial planning and to the colour palette - alongside higher-than-normal ceilings and full glazing which lets in loads of natural light; great spaces to relax in; and, most importantly, offers a quality, affordable accommodation option just 20 minutes (by fast train) from the city.

The hotel’s distinct architecture - likened to giant white shoeboxes stacked on each other - was conceived by Crawfords and is indicative of the urban regeneration underway in Hurstville at the moment.

“We wanted this building to stand out,” says Architect Paul Godsell. “Think smart good-looking architecture, attention to detail in all aspects of design; and rooms that are flooded with natural light and so many angles of vision from every direction.”

And, as you’d expect from a Travelodge, the location is superb offering travellers easy access to the Royal National Park. Travelodge Hotel Hurstville is also close to the airport and to Netstrata Jubilee Stadium. A nearby hospital precinct and Westfield Shopping Centre and Club Central offerings make this hotel equally desirable for leisure and business travellers.

General Manager Announced:  TFE Hotels has appointed Travelodge Hotel specialist, Ansarina Flower, as pre-opening General Manager. Ansarina is not only a posterchild for brand “Travelodge”, but also for being a full-time working mum at TFE. The super mum-of-four started her TFE career as Reservations Manager at Travelodge Wynyard, with a variety of management roles at Travelodge Sydney, Travelodge Blacktown, Bankstown, Newcastle, and Martin Place.
