BUDGET hotel Travelodge is looking for new premises in Somerset.

The firm has revealed it is on the lookout for sites in Minehead, Yeovil, the centre of Taunton and Weston-super-Mare.

It says the potential investment could top £32 million and create around 100 jobs. 

Currently, the nearest Travelodge to Taunton town centre is at Hankridge and there is a venue at Chelston, near Wellington.
