Cambridge today

Ahh the dreaming spires of Cambridge. Fantastic old town+gown place, full of old pubs and interesting folks. So obviously, with a night to spend there, I would consider something appropriate.
God knows what I was thinking. I landed up in a sh*thole Travellodge on a new cinema complex. No food at the bar (but lots of screaming brats at 11pm), no smoking in the hotel. Hilarious.
