Trowell has a history of being slated but Moto have worked hard to brighten it up a bit. The northbound and southbound sites are very different, with northbound having had an extension. The car park is very small and finding spaces can sometimes be difficult.

Trowell services was originally awarded to Mecca Leisure who had a very unique styling. Granada extended it, but Moto reduced the number of brand partners.

During early 2017, the southbound EDC restaurant was removed to make way for a M&S Simply Food store which opened on March 30 2017 to join its northbound counterpart.

In October 2019, the southbound West Cornwall Pasty Company unit was replaced with another Greggs store meaning that there are now a total of 4 Greggs stores here.
