As usual clean, tidy and friendly staff. However it is very easy to miss this hotel due to the appalling entrance though a working hand car wash. When it is open there are many people and stationary cars you have to thread your way though. When closed it is in pitch darkness. On leaving the Travel lodge there is a... More

The hotel itself is one of the best I have been to. We were checked in by a helpful and friendly lady. Our room was nice and clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was also clean but do be careful when getting in the bath as it was slippery and quite high, My 11 year old daughter struggled... More

If you want a normal Travelodge room, then this is ok, however if after a long drive and all you want to do is relax, have a meal, forget it. No restaurant on-site, no cooked breakfast, a box is offered but it's a aeroplane breakfast in a box. Point being, you have to drive to get a meal.

To start with this hotel has been refurbished and is clean ,tidy and well located from the A14 only 7 miles from the city of Cambridge.Finding it however is not easy at all,it is on the opposite side off the carriageway to Cambridge services,not accessible from the hotel,I would imagine this hotel was built with a little chef on site,however...

Travelodge has vastly improved since the last time I visited. My problem appears to be the same as all the rest -it is so poorly signed that I completely missed it the first time & had to make a detour to find it. I know it was dark and I don't know what it would be like in the daylight.... More

Usual Travelodge facilities, no complaints...lovely big room, comfy bed etc etc etc. BUT...the access is appalling! Arriving after dark..Almost immediately after driving under a bridge, your attention is taken by the services signs on the other side of the dual carriageway and you miss the pitch black closed car wash with rutted tarmac and the empty, closed Fish and Chip...

This Travelodge is fiendishly difficult to find, especially in the dark, and when you have missed it and driven past you are on a dual carriageway with a long drive back again. It is set back from the road behind other buildings and the sat nav will not take you to the door. Be well prepared in advance to pinpoint... More

This was the second time I had stayed at this hotel and I will be going back. I was wary of travelodge as their reputation had not always been good but I really could not fault the hotel. The service was fantastic and the room was spotless. All newly fitted.

For a 1 night stay this hotel was great just off the A14 and close enough for visiting our friends in Cambridge. The hotel is set back from a fish and chip shop and car wash not very picturesque but to be honest arriving on a cold windy night and once inside was neither here nor there. Check in was... More
