We stayed on a Saturday and Sunday night and had a fairly typical Travelodge experience. This is a new hotel in a convenient location. Although our room was very clean and in good condition, there are already signs of wear and tear in common areas. The car park (free) is small. If you turn up at midday, there's a good chance that someone will be checking out so you can grab a space. You don't need to check in early - just let reception know you've parked up and they'll give you a ticket to put in the window. The bar and café areas are light, bright and impersonal and bar prices comparable to expensive pubs. We had breakfast both mornings and both experiences were dire! No orange juice, just apple or water. Rubbery scrambled eggs. Really poor quality bread for toast. No croissants on the second morning. It's quite poor value for money and you would be better off going outside the hotel for breakfast. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful if a little ineffective. For instance, on the first morning, we discovered on going down to breakfast that someone had vomited just outside the lifts. We let reception know but I don't think anything was done until the normal cleaning schedule as there was a residual mark on the carpet. My husband wanted to rest after a fairly tiring tramp around Cambridge and so returned to our room at 15:30 to find it hadn't been made up. Even after mentioning this to both reception and housekeeping staff, the room wasn't made up until well after 16:00. Our room was at the back of the hotel on the second floor which cut down the noise from traffic although we could still hear sirens etc. However the worst noise problem came from inside the hotel. Unidentified thuds and door slams continued until quite late at night. We probably will stay here again just because of the location but when the Premier Inn is completed I think the competition may be too much for the Travelodge.
