The room was moldy and the toilets were extremely dirty. The service was poor -- the owner didn't even bother to serve breakfast during the indicated breakfast time. To anyone thinking of staying at the Aylesbury Lodge -- don't! It was the worst experience of my life.

I stayed here on business as I wanted somewhere close to Addenbrookes Hospital - which in deed this 'hotel' was. However that is the only positive thing I can say. It was dirty, the staff unfriendly, it was noisy and all in all a thoroughly unpleasant stay was had! I woke up on the first morning with what looked like... More

For a start the room had a nasty odour hence Pee the bedding itself smelt feisty like damp washing been left too long before drying it. It was very poor value for money and i wouldn't recommend going there to anyone plus i would never stay there again rather sleep in a tent.

This was a last minute company booking and the hotel was on our recommended list. I don't know who would recommend this place or who would say it was 4*. I was met as I checked in by a female. Very scruffy and uninterested. The reception desk was taped together. The room doors had post it's on displaying the room... More

My partner and I stayed for one night and found everything to be perfectly fine with all our needs met. Free parking, great location, and George the owner was very friendly and helpful. Perhaps the decorations are a little bland but we didn't spend much time in the room because we were out doing fun things and not sat around... More

I arranged accommodation for my daughter at Aylesbury Lodge and was promised that she would be well looked after. She arrived late in the evening following her first day in her first job to find that the room allocated to her was dirty, the walls were marked in the bedroom and dirty in the tiny en-suite, bins were unemptied from...

Read some reviews and totally smashed this place BUT people I think expect the earth now a days, it's not a ramada or Novotel it's a B&B! Yes, looks a bit dated but it ain't that bad as I've stayed clearly in some dumps. If you expect the earth you rarely get it, ok for single night in and out.... More

I have stayed in hundreds of hotels and I would have to say this is in the top 5 worst hotels that I have stayed in. I have never left a review on any hotel I have stayed in but felt obliged to leave one for this terrible B&B. The decor is dated and the room was filthy e.g. Dirty... More

Expensive booking cancellation. I booked and in few days changed my mind because. After several mails and lose of time, I obtained the refund of the amount except for the cost of one night (on six booked). When I met Mr. George, he told me the cost was the amount due to bank. He admitted his bank is very expensive...
