Trivia

Cambridge was the first of Extra's many planned services to open, opening on the 1st December 2000. Extra said that most of the units would become conference facilities and they would not use franchises, but this has not been adhered to.

There was once a service station on the eastbound side which consisted of a petrol station, Little Chef and a Travelodge. The petrol station has since closed and been converted to a hand car wash, the Little Chef is now an American Diner and the Travelodge is still going strong, however the service area is now signed as "Hotel"

Ramada is owned by Welcome Break and the Costa outlet and the M&S Simply Food store are both owned by Moto.

The Ramada was originally a Days Inn however it was rebranded and refurbished in July 2015.

Survey Results

In 2012 and 2014 the services won a gold loo award.

Cambridge won the motorway service station category in the 2013 Loo of the Year Awards, despite being a TRSA.

In May 2012, it was rated as 3 stars by Visit England.
