Trivia and History
The petrol station was built in the 1960s, on the old alignment of the A30. It was joined by Hayle Little Chef in 1989.
The Premier Inn, adjoining pub and McDonald's all opened around 2000.
Facing increased competition (especially as the McDonald's was more visible), the Little Chef closed in 2004. Travelodge then built a hotel in the former restaurant's car park, and plans were made for the Little Chef to reopen to coincide with the hotel opening. However, the owners of Little Chef got into financial difficulties and the restaurant remains closed to this day.
