The Travelodge Hotel on Aylesbury End in Beaconsfield appears to have been temporarily closed months ago – but the chain has not been forthcoming about the reasons why.

A spokesperson for the UK’s largest independent hotel brand told the Free Press this week that its Beaconsfield branch had been “temporarily closed for ongoing surveys” while operators “assess their options (upon) the completion of these”.

They said the closure would not impact the Travelodge hotels in High Wycombe, Maidenhead or Marlow and apologised for “any inconvenience caused (to) our customers”.

The most recent review of the hotel on TripAdvisor suggests that the building was closed partway through one customer’s stay back in February due to “being condemned by builders”.

The reviewer described their visit as “complete chaos”, with “staff knocking on guest’s doors late into the night to inform them”.

Locals in the Beaconsfield Chat Facebook group also suggested that the site had been closed “for refurbishment”, with one person claiming that management told them it was slated to reopen in 2027.

Conservative candidate for Beaconsfield and incumbent MP Joy Morrissey said residents had recently “raised concerns” with her over a failure to book stays at the hotel in Old Town, prompting her to reach out to the company and receive a similar response to the one given to this newspaper.
