A company has apologised after delays in opening a new landmark hotel.

The 14-storey Travelodge in Station Approach, Walthamstow, was due to welcome its first customers on June 23.

The company said work was taking “longer than anticipated” and apologised to customers who had booked rooms.

A spokeswoman said: “Unfortunately, as a result of this delay, all bookings that have been made for this hotel have been transferred to one of our nearby Travelodge hotels or customers have been refunded according to their preference.

"We would like to sincerely apologise to all affected customers and to the local residents of the inconvenience this delay has caused.

“The building team are working around the clock to get the hotel ready for business as soon as possible."

This has to go down as one of the ugliest new landmarks in Walthamstow! It looks more like a shipping container depot than a hotel with its ugly corner facade visible for miles around. How could LBWF planning committee pass this as something to enhance the environment? How could any architect think this was an appropriate design for the area?

I don't think the artist's impression helps as it looks like something out of Gomenghast. Indeed the cover illustration of the book is not a million miles away from it http://www.mervynpea
ke.org/ if a bit more attractive! I suggest anyone booking should carry a clove of garlic with them at all times.
