IT'S the hotel room that is, quite literally, in a field of its own.

Budget accommodation giant Travelodge is to launch trials of the world's first mobile hotel room.

They say that it will be the ultimate accessory for lovers of outdoor entertainment.

"Forget waterlogged tents," says Wayne Munnelly, Travelodge's evocatively-titled Director of Sleep.

"Now you can have for the first time, a mobile bedroom or 'Travelpod' to make even the fussiest festivalgoer feel at home.

The room comes complete with a luxury double bed, bedside tables, lights, duvet, pillows, fully carpeted floor, dressing table with light, mirror, chair and even its own WC! It's a palatial pod sealed in a 6m by 2.4m by 2.6m clear polycarbonate glass box but inside has features that you will find in any Travelodge hotel across the country." The Travelpod will be trialled this summer in a number of 'soft' tests in various environments, with a festival earmarked for next year to run the first customer tests.

"We are always looking at new ways of making budget accommodation more accessible to the public," says Wayne. "The Travelpod is a great way of taking our Travelodge room to the customer."
