Travelodge Newmarket Road Cambridge

Reviewed 12 January 2014

Standard Travelodge fare here - standard clean rooms, quiet, comfortable bed and clean functional bathroom. Selling point was the free underground carpark, which was great because it meant avoiding the sickening Cambridge central parking fees. Another was the location - 15 minute walk to the centre, and that walk is past pubs and restaurants down Newmarket Road - ideal if you arrive late and need some food (and dont want to eat in the hotel). It was very quiet here and seemed not even half full - the price was good.

Generally a good hotel for the money - but...

The shower in the very well appointed accessible bathroom with a roll-in shower and a very secure shower seat. Except I couldn't get the water hot, or even warm! When I mentioned the water temperature to reception staff I got a very half-hearted apology, which didn't really cut it.

I had an accessible room but the narrow single bed was so low. The hotel was unable to provide riser feet to raise the bed (despite them being available in other TLs) so they put a foam sofa bed mattress on top of the bed; it was too short so my feet hung over the end, the mattress was uncomfortable and I worried about falling out of bed it was so narrow!

NOTE: If you are arriving with a wheelchair you will be better using the setting down point in front of reception rather than coming in through the car park entrance as the turn as you come through the door (which has a lip) is very tight!

All said and done, we coped with the inconveniences and had a very enjoyable girls' weekend on a budget!

Great Travelodge this one; in a good location about 10/15 minutes walk into the centre of Cambridge. Massive bonus is that it had free parking. Quite new so everything in good condition, staff pleasant and quick check-in time. We stayed in November and it was freezing but the room was lovely and warm. Recommended. I've given everything top marks because even though it's a budget chain, I was very happy with everything.

I stayed here for 1 night. It was only £45 so was a good deal with free parking. Was a little disappointed about location it was about 15 minute walk but I still had to get a taxi back as i didn't feel it was close enough to walk back at 2am. Also although its cheap they are trying to get extra money from you all the time £10 to check in early, £10 to check out late and you have to pay for WIFI!, granted it does tell you this when you book though. Also there is only 1 disabled toilet in the reception and it had no toilet paper and was constantly busy. As I say though it was cheap and the rooms were impecably clean (even though no shampoo etc) so I would stay here again.

Stayed here in New years eve with a few friends. Me and my boyfriend shared a double room. The hotel was lively but clean and staff were friendly. Hotel is only a thirty minute walk from town and is a totally bargain, £48 for a double or triple room. Highly recommend if you're planning a night out in Cambridge or a shopping weekend!

Not an auspicious start when, for the first time ever at a Travelodge, there was a hiccup with my reservation - the hotel didn't have us even though we had a reservation number and the receptionist came across as a little brusque initially when she implied we were at the wrong hotel. She eventually sorted it out and was very helpful and accommodating. Our room was clean and tidy and obviously new (the new look is good!). For a hotel on a busy street it was remarkably quiet too! One obvious improvement would be an adjustment of the shower curtain - with the best will in the world, a shower curtain that ends a good 4 inches above the shower tray is going to lead to a very wet bathroom floor no matter how careful you are!

I stayed at this travelodge as I was attending a works do in Cambridge and this was a cheaper alternative to a taxi home. Check in was easy and without any fuss. My room was perfect for what I needed with a comfy bed, powerful shower and hanging space for the next days shirt! It's location was ideal and was able to walk to and from the city centre without any trouble.

If your looking for no frills clean 1 night accommodation close to Cambridge City centre you can't really go wrong with this nearly new travelodge.
