Pascal Bamford, Travelodge district manager, said: “Dalkeith has been selected as one of our key locations. We are actively looking for the ideal site to open our first hotel there. This will represent an investment of £6m and a job creation of 15.

“It’s also great news for the local economy as Travelodge customers spend double their room rate with local businesses during their stay which equates to a multi-million spend annually.”
