“Got a decents night sleep.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for a wedding we attended at nearby Chippenham Park.
This was my first ever stay at a Travelodge. Myself and husband usually stay at a rival budget chain hotel.
I was pleasantly surprised by the decor and overall appearance of the place, it's recently been refurbished.

We received a warm welcome from the receptionist who advised us on where to get breakfast etc.

The rooms were clean and spacious. They included a TV and tea/coffee making facilities.
I was quite shocked by the fact there is no hand soap to use in the bathroom after going to the toilet!
The bed was very comfy and I got a very good nights sleep, couldn't hear any noise coming from outside.

A good stay and would use this particular Travelodge in future should the occasion arise.

Oh and just quickly! We ate at the Little Chef, wasn't amazing but our breakfasts were OK. Bit shabby inside.

This was are first visit to the area and we chose this hotel for its location. It is a basic hotel with no cafe or bar but there is an excellent pub in Mildenhall (The Half Moon, see my review).
We were greeted by a lovely lady, named Sheelagh who made us feel very welcome and gave us some useful information about the area. It was nice to see the same staff each day. We stayed for three nights. When we first arrived in our room, which was on the first floor, we were surprised to see a baby deer in the garden. The room overlooked the woods and was very pleasant. Considering the hotel is at a junction (fiveways roundabout) it was incredibly quiet except for the military aircraft, which we didn't mind at all. (The hotel is located close to two RAF bases which we understand are being used by the US airforce). The hotel has recently been refurbished and the bed was very comfortable with fluffy pillows. On site there is a petrol station and a Little Chef from which we had a take away breakfast roll.
We drove into Cambridge and parked at the park and ride (free parking and £2.60 return each for the bus. A bargain!!). Cambridge is well worth a visit. While there we also visited Ely and Thetford Forest. To me Ely is nothing really to write home about but was nice for a morning visit and has a lovely Cathedral. There is plenty to see and do in Thetford Forest with lots of walks and cycle routes. There is also a Go Ape adventure centre.
The hotel is ideal if you are going to Newmarket races as it is only a 10 minute drive to the racecourse on the A11.
One more thing, don't be put off by the major roadworks in the area (A11 road widening) as they caused us very little problem and we heard very little noise.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel face onto the woods.

Travelodge have really smartened up their act, I have used this place many times and this year was the best ever. Newly decorated rooms good amenities, if you just need a bed for the night with a decent en suite you cannot beat a Travelodge for around £45.00.opposite is a nice pub and free Wi-Fi for the surfers. All in all a great link to east Anglia.

Room Tip: book a family room and if you end up taking the family you have the extra bed to hand

This Lodge is ideally located and central for East Anglia. It has almost everything going for it. A good Little Chef and a Petrol Forecourt with a 24 hour Spar shop on your doorstep. Also a very good pub and restaurant over the other side of the dual carriageway. Even though the Little Chef advertise Free WiFi, it doesn't have it. The Lodge has. but at a price. as all lodges have.

Our welcome to the hotel was very warm and the receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was easy to find and very clean. The hotel was very quiet during the night and we were not disturbed at all. Overall, very satisfied with our stay.

We came down for a funeral and stayed here, as we came down after work we didn't arrive until late (11.30pm), I had phoned in advance to check this was ok and they put a note under our names just to say this, they also said doors locked at 10pm so just to buzz, thought it was good that they put a note down so as not to have any confusion when we got there.

Staff friendly, rooms comfortable but basic, good stopover point. Don't really rate the Little Chef next door, but that's got nothing to do with Travelodge, just a shame it's your only option. Car park is large, plenty of spaces, well lit and there were still plenty of spaces even when arriving that late, though it looked like the hotel was very full.

This hotel has had a refurb, still a budget chain and was a good price. We have family friends locally and have stayed once or twice before and I must say that this hotel is much improved from the last visit. If I hadn't of read positive reviews recently I wouldn't have stayed this time, but after staying this time I would definitely recommend as a good base or short stopover point.
