“A few days in Cambridge”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

We stayed at Orchard Park for 3 nights on a short break in Cambridge.
Satnav was accurate, which was fortunate as there weren't any local street signs until we actually arrived on site.
We parked close to the car park entry and did not immediately see where to go, and consequently walked to the front of the building. A directional sign to the car park entrance would be useful.
Checking in was speedy and the reception staff welcoming. We saw the front of house staff dealing with a number of customers during our stay and were impressed by their manner, helpfulness, and clear customer focus.
On the day of arrival we needed to meet with family at another Travelodge and the reception staff produced printed directions which were easy to follow and accurate. On another occasion we decided to use local buses and were directed to the nearest bus stop and even told how much a day rover would cost!!
We hit lucky that the weather was good for our stay, but the lack of air-conditioning meant we felt uncomfortable at times.
The hotel is at the side of the A14 and about 15 minutes (driving) to the Centre of Cambridge.
There are no adjoining facilities such as pubs/restaurants but the bar and diner seemed well used.

I would use this hotel again

I was for a week in this hotel for a congress.
Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Even gave me a power adaptator when needed. Breakfast was OK. Food not so much.
Wifi dysfunctional, half of the time not working and very slow the rest of the time (not suitable for working conditions). Comfortable bed and pleasant room but bad smell. Not well deserved by public transportation.

Useful that the car parking is free and there are plenty of taxis to take you into the centre if you do not want to drive. Staff are very helpful and welcoming. Choose a room on the side away from the main road as there is a bit of traffic noise on the A14 side of the motel. Stayed here many times and it is a very nice Travelodge.

Husband and I needed somewhere to stay whilst attending a formal function in Cambridge for a night. As event started at 2100 and finished (for us) at 0200 all we really needed was a clean, functional room for the night with the promise of something greasy in the morning.
For £63 (including 2 breakfasts) the Travel Lodge offered exactly that. Check in was easy, staff were pleasant, room was clean and modern, forewarned noise from the nearby road was negligible and breakfast was sufficient.
The room itself was a particularly pleasant surprise in that it really was very clean and modern but for some reason did seem superheated compared to other parts of the hotel.
During our stay the Wifi had failed (husband nearly had a coronary!) but the staff seemed proactive about trying to fix it (we logged in via BT in the end, so never found out if they did).
The breakfast was exactly what you'd expect for £6.95 a head, but there were adequate options on the table regarding hot options, cereal etc.
For what we needed, and what we paid the hotel was perfect.

Room Tip: We were in 139 - quite a walk from reception, but no noticeable road noise

The new building is very nice! New big rooms and clean as always. Okay location, out of town but a easy 15min bus ride into town. Not great service at the bar or reception. Delicious breakfast but not cheap

My husband and I stayed here for one night and it was excellent from the speedy check in by very friendly staff to the small but very clean room. I had my doubts about staying here as I have not had very good experiences in the past with Travel Lodges but I would recommend it to anyone. Not quite as many amenities as the Premier group but everything you could need, just remember to ask for a hair drier at reception. Tea coffee in the room, and they did have a bar. Bed was very comfy and we both had a really good nights sleep.very good value for the money as quite a bit cheaper than the nearby Premier inn and Holiday Inn. Thank you to all the lovely staff who made us feel very welcome. Lots of parking to.

Recently stayed at Orchard Buisiness Park in Cambridge on business, hotel is modern ,clean, well maintained and ideal for access too and from Cambridge. Although this is a relatively new hotel it lacks design in some areas . The reception area seems far too large and could've been split into a lounge, the bar is hidden away as you walk into the so called restaraunts. I would class this more as a cafeteria and felt it again was poorly designed. The room seemed adequate for my stay but I have to say that the room temperature was sweltering. There was no air conditioning and it was impossible to leave the window open due to the vicinity of the busy A14 for traffic noise.. The shower and bathroom facilities where fine. WiFi was poor after paying an extra £3 for the wifi for 24 hours it limited the number of devices I could use and then kept dropping out so I couldn't complete the work I needed. Overall I felt that Travelodge hasn't changed much and if they have invested as much as they say, they where given poor advice on how to and where too invest.
