“Couldn't be more friendly ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Originally booked at a different travelodge outside Cambridge on the A14 road but at arrival (at midnight!) outside the entrance was flooded from quick downpour during evening. Me and the girlfriend was greeted by a friendly staff holding an umbrella and has wellies on, he told us because of the flooded entrance we been transferred to this travelodge nearer the city centre (at no extra cost) which we drove another 15 mins to there and we was greeted by another friendly staff. We were told we can have breakfast for free in the next morning. The bar was still open at 1am which I enjoyed a drink before a good night's sleep. I was feeling refreshed for spending a day visitnh Cambridge for the first time. The friendless of the staff as enabled our stay to be stress-free and I would come back here again if I visit Cambridge again in the future.

Stayed August 2014

Room was spacious and clean and airy. Daily room service of cleaning and replacing towels was good service. All in all, good value for money and very pleasant stay. Recommended. Good location just out of town but within walking distance and near to smaller shops and supermarket.

Very clean and comfortable rooms I had a quiet room out the back. Have stayed in some crummy travelodges in my time but this one I would definitely recommend as good. Loads of busses into city centre with stop just outside hotel. I will be back.

This travelodge slightly on the outskits of the main centre yet within an easy 15/20 min walk was comfortable and provided all thats needed for an overnight stay. Clean rooms, comfortable bed with nice linens. We were also pleasantly surprised at the lack of noise from within the hotel, the rooms are clearly well insulated.. The breakfast buffet was also a reasonable purchase with the food being continually freshly cooked, although the atomosphere of the eating area is more like a motorway service area.
The downsides were an incredibly small bathroom (shower only) with an extractor fan that wasn't working so the whole room misted up very damply. More oddly there were only hand towels provided, not sure if they had run out of large towels or if this is just their policy ?
The rooms could seriously do with air conditioning, although a fan was provided which we had to run all night, plus with the window open the traffic noise was evident.
The positives outweighed the negatives. The staff were friendly and helpful, they could do wih more staff on the desk at main checking in and out times always a queue. Didn't need to use the car park but I suspect a 200 room hotel with only 50+ car parking spaces is a huge problem for the local people who live around there. On a walk out in the morning we did notice a car parked on the outside of the car park with a smashed window.
If we were visiting Cambridge again for an overnight stay we would use again. One note if you are looking for good evening food you do need to go into the centre of Cambridge there appears nothing reasonable in the immediate vicinity.

Room was basic as expected but very clean and a lovely big comfortable bed, the only real issue was the heat in the hotel, although it was 23deg outside there was no aircon except in reception, the corridors and rooms were stifling, a desk fan in the room made very little difference, everyone seemed to have an issue with it. Even when things cooled down outside the hotel retained the heat all night. It spoiled the weekend.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms round the back away from busy road but all rooms are too hot

Stayed in this travelodge for 4 nights whilst visiting the Cambridge Folk Festival.
The staff were a pleasure to deal with, very helpful and welcoming. The number 3 Bus to the city centre was right outside the front door - also continues to the folk festival at Cherry Hinton - perfect!
Found parking very easy - self parking and at no extra cost. Had a room on the ground floor at the back of the hotel. Very quite, good comfortable bed and slept well. Bathroom with shower was on the small size but had everything needed for a short stay and was clean and fresh. Breakfast standard Travelodge offering.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel quieter.

Staff were very happy to help and location was good if you didn't mind a walk to the city centre, but was close to a local shopping centre and retail park. Rooms we're quit hot at night as it was summer.
