We have stayed here a couple of times and both times the room very cold . All staff disappear in the evening times so you cannot get hold of anyone of you have a problem . There is probably a reason why this is one of the cheaper places to stay in the Cambridge area . Rooms are very dated...

I received more than I had expected for the very competitive price; A very friendly and helpful welcome. I had a clean and comfortable room with TV, use of a clean shared bathroom with copious amounts of hot water for a shower; an excellent serve yourself, healthy, buffet breakfast; the use of the car park whilst taking a local bus...

Basic is rather too kind for this place! While the rooms were comfy and clean, they were in need of repair. Breakfast was incredibly basic, and totally self service, and I got the impression the other "Guests" were residents! The whole place felt the care home it clearly used to be, the staff were standoffish and barely spoke English, when...

My family and I were away on a family celebration and was only looking for a place to sleep. The bedrooms were basic but clean. I would describe breakfast as continental style, so if looking for full English this is not for you. Staff were helpful as we needed to book in early so we could change after our journey,

From the moment we pulled into the drive we felt something was wrong. We entered to find no one on the desk, just a room key with our name on it. The lodge looked out-dated, the kitchen room was filthy. The room was tiny, we a horrible bed, a disgusting smell in the bathroom and marks/stuff all over the wall....

Worst hotel we have ever stayed in. Arrived around 7 pm nobody on reception just room key and our name left on the desk. Went to room. Just a bed, small cupboard, small shelf/desk thing and a chair. Only 1 pillow each and 1 towel to share. Never seen such a small tv before. Curtains hanging off. Only mirror was...

We stayed here for one night as it was close to friends we were visiting. I have to say I will never return! I wasn't expecting luxury but I was expecting cleanliness. When we arrived there was nobody on reception to greet us. Our first mistake was booking the place and our second was tracking someone down to book us...

Room was basic but very clean, had an en~suite which was also very clean. Good selection of breakfast. Staff were friendly and it is situated in an ideal location for sight seeing. Bus stop right outside with buses running every 20 minutes so leave your car at Lodge. Will definitely recommend for a nice cheap stay and will definitely visit...
