Travelodge this week launched a dual celebration with a common theme. The hotel chain celebrates its 25th anniversary in the historic city of Cambridge in the same week that the royal baby Prince George of Cambridge is 25 days old.

Travelodge will be opening its sixth and largest hotel to date in Cambridge on Newmarket Road, and is offering any Britons called George Cambridge a free overnight stay there or in any other of its 502 UK hotels.

“To celebrate the arrival of Prince George of Cambridge, we thought it would be quite fitting to also mark our 25th anniversary and, the opening of our largest hotel in the historic city of Cambridge, by offering Britons called George Cambridge a free night stay,” says Travelodge spokeswoman Shakila Ahmed.

“George Cambridge can stay in an of our UK hotels, which include royal connected locations such as: London, Windsor, Edinburgh and Holyhead. To add to the royal experience George will get to sleep like a king in our brand new Travelodge Dreamer bed, which is deemed in the industry as the Rolls Royce of beds and is made by royal warrant holders.”

British citizens called George Cambridge can claim their free room by registering their details at, which will involve sending proof of their name. They can then book a room in a UK Travelodge of their choice.

The new Cambridge hotel boasts a unique 14-metre stain glass window created by artist Julian Stocks. This piece of art showcases quotes inspired by travellers.
