Maybe I am too easily pleased but I can't understand how people find this place terrible. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was decorated in a strange but quaintly quirky way but everything did what it was supposed to. Bed was very comfortable, shower worked perfectly as did the TV and WiFi and there was loads of...

I'm a bit confused about this place. Everything is so small, so you don't really want to spend too much time here. The first day there was some strange smell in the room and it was extremely hot, but this is because of the not-so-English weather :) The bed is comfortable, however, it fills all the room :) The wifi...

The price was attractive; However, the service was very poor, I arrived at 6:00pm and the room was not ready although I booked over the phone, 1h before. While the room was being prepared, I was offered to have a coffee and to wait in the breakfast area; I started to work and catch up on email.. Shortly after the...

What can I say, the bed had clean sheets, the staff were very pleasant, but the DIY botched up poor excuse of a shower, with black moldy curtain, and decor really let the place down, and if you were a larger person, heaven help you, will not book again unless they can prove it has changed.

I chose this guest house as it is just up the road from my son and I was visiting him. I booked on Booking.com and the pictures there looked fine. It was a similar price to the Travelodge up the road so I booked in. I was offered the choice of 3 rooms and I chose the ground floor room...

Called on the day of arrival.. At approx 11am to tell us they'd forgotten about our booking and we're now fully booked!! Luckily the premier inn came to our rescue but an extra £50 more!! Compensation? I think so.. As we were stranded!! Thank you!!

I make regular trips to Cambridge for work and sometimes book accommodation at short notice. I selected 'Brooklands Guest House' because of the reasonable price and the location close to the railway station. Although the decor is rather dated - particularly in the entrance hall - the bedroom, although small, was serviceable and the dining room was pleasant. Despite arriving...

Can't figure out why there are so many negative views upon this hotel and the owner -- a kindly lady with a handsome white dog. I think it's really worth the price to get corresponding services here in expensive Cambridge. If you want a 5-star hotel experience, just don't go there. Upon arrival, the lady gave us warm welcome. We...

I think this place gets a lot of bad press but then if you dont know Cambridge then you can be forgiven for thinking this is a high quality place to stay. Its not. Pay more if you want Cambridge luxury and stay central. Ive never paid more than £55 for a night here (single tariff). You can pay the...

We had booked 2 rooms in this "guesthouse" for 2 nights based on their nice looking website, it all appeared to be very misleading. Me and my wife were put in the attic where, if I bended my head, could touch both walls with my shoulders. It was impossible to stand upstraight. The fan of the shower compartment was so...
