Ok let me start this lengthy review by saying I do not write bad reviews, I was bought up with the beliefs if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all. Unfortunately I feel it is my duty to break my rule on this occasion as this poor excuse of a b&b is undoubtably the... More

After receiving a phone call whilst in France myself and a colleague had to be in Cambridge by the next morning. We searched the Internet and happened upon "aylesbray lodge" as all other hotels seemed to be booked up (apparently it's a a lot to do with tourism from Japanese and Chinese tourists) Anyway so after a long 8hour drive...

Couldn't get any other accommodation while visiting Cambridge. Says it is four star, but would rate it one. Bathroom wasn't clean, but the beds were comfortable enough. Breakfast was an extra £10, so didn't have it. The room for what it was, was expensive enough. Would I stay again. No!!!

My work were holding a conference and needed many rooms to accommodate our professional colleagues, I firstly emailed them on the 10th July to ask how much they would quote for all their rooms they had available on the dates needed. I had to chase the lodge twice as they did not email me back, eventually got a response on... More

I stayed at Aylesbray Lodge for business at the beginning of June. There was a boat race the following day so hotel rooms in Cambridge were scarce and this was the first place I called with any availabiliy. The website said that the guest house wouldn't normally provide breakfast, but when my colleague called he was informed they would do... More

Booked by my company, shared bathroom, paper thin walls, and ceiling, not enough tea making stuff in the room, lumpy bed, all the worst aspects of British bed and breakfast hotels. Thanks goodness it was just one night.

This booking was made for me in order that I could chair a seminar at Cambridge. On reading the reviews, I expected much, much worse than was provided. The lodge is in essence a converted and extended dwelling. And I was accommodated in the annex a few houses down the road. I stayed in the back room of a semi-detached... More

I was quoted one fee and my credit card was charged a more expensive fee without my authorisation. Room was tired and smelly. Bathroom was dated and mould in... More

what can I say... the hotel was dated, reception unmanned 90% of the time even when checking out, there was a box to put the key in, the room was small and bed was ridiculously uncomfortable. breakfast was not included and was an extra £8 per person, the bedroom doors was not self locking so anyone could walk in at...
