TRAVELODGE has said it will start work today on the first phase of £223m refurbishment programme, as the budget hotel chain looks to put its financial woes behind it.

The firm, which underwent a debt restructuring last year, will splash out £53m revamping 30,000 of its rooms over the next 18 months including at its flagship sites at Covent Garden, City Road, Southwark and Gatwick airport.
