“Good value B&B”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2012

For the price a reasonable standard B&B. No issues with booking or payment.

Comfortable and clean room although one or two bits of wear and tear, to be expected for this very reasonable price.

Ideal for cheap one night business stay - no frills should be expected.

A short drive into Cambridge.

Only (small) gripe was limited parking if you came in late but on street available if you dont mind walking a bit.

Where to start!! Stupidly booked a room here before reading reviews!! As we arrived we were greeted by no one, rang the bell twice, no answer then the dog finally greeted us! Finally we were greeted by the miserable landlord who showed us to our room. Our room was based at the back near the kitchen, as we arrived the door and window were open, (may have been May but it was a cold rainy day!) we looked around, and it had not been recently modified, two mismatched beda with mismatched bedding, old dusty wardrobes and doors and a small unclean bathroom. After a while we began to notice a smell of damp and fust, clearly the reason the door was left open! The smeel stayed the whole time we were there ans obviously left us reluctant to hang clothes in the wardrobe. As the room was still cold after a while I decided to speak to the landlady, who stated well its May, otll comw on soon and be off by 11pm and back on at 6am...neither did ir come on soon...two houre later....it went off after an hour or so and never vame on the following morning...lucky for us we had spare blankets in the car! The next morning we woke, cold and still being able to smell the lingering fusty odour. As the bathroom did not look clean, had two dirty bath mats and soap whochbhad clearly been sat there a while we gave the shower a miss and headed to pay! On reluctatnly paying for the bill, I explained it was cold throughout he night and about the smell and the woman just stared at me, i also noticed as payong she had a handwritten record of debit card numbers for booking which i made her erase whilst i was present, clearly confidential when on view to the public!! Oh and sorry to go but id also like to agree with another comment below, it feels as though your are interupting a family home, an unclean.one at that! The dining room has animals running about and the garden has all the waahing haning on, not proffesional at all. Also on passing.our room we.noticed the kitchen door open.which a groupbof smokers were forever stood by had a strong smeelnof grease, needless to say we gave the breakfast a miss!! Finally id like to point out how unsafe to women felt sleeping in a room at the back of a house on an estate which only had a plyeood door on with a small lock and a fist mark on the front, luckily there was a chair to put up the door, but not that would.do much good if there was an intruder!! PLEASE PLEASE DONT WAIST YOUR MONEY STAYING HERE, PAY A LITTLE EXTRA AND STAY IN A NICE B AND B CLOSER TO THE CENTER WITH FRIENDLY STAFF AND NO COBWEBS AND FUSTY SMELLS! This woman does not care.for your custom so dont waist time or money!!!

Hello, this was my second visit to Oakley Lodge and I was as impressed as I was on my first visit last year.
I stayed in a double room en suite (room 14), it had also been refurbished and was as immaculately prepared for me as was my room last year (room 5, en suite).
Both rooms were at the rear of the hotel and were quiet. Breakfast was as good as last time.
Plenty of parking and buses into town plentiful and handy.
