My fiance and myself were up for a concert, and after a near miss experience with another B&B in Cambridge, I booked this one with just over a week's notice. It was quite a way from the rail station, but worth it. The owner and his wife were very nice people, and our room was lovely. Nice small ensuite bathroom... More

I booked a single room for 2 nights, for a citybreak in Cambridge. The room was very small, but very clean, did the job. Toilet and shower shared, on the same floor, also very clean. Breakfast not cooked, but a wide choice of cereals, cheese, ham, salami, plenty of tea, coffee and toast, butter and jams. Close to the city... More

As I was feeling ill, it was late in the day and I was tired of driving my girlfriend & I decided to stop In Cambridge for the night. We saw the sign and stopped. Only a family room was available but the owner gave it to us for the double price. Good start. The owner was friendly & helpful... More

Please note I'm a generally positive reviewer so please take this into account when you're weighing up your options! I realised that it was better value for money to stay at the Lodge than train and bus it to my place of work, due to a night out with colleagues in the city. The lodge is well sign posted, and...

If you don't mind small basic rooms and tiny bathrooms, this B&B is a good choice in Cambridge. Everything was very clean. Flat-screen TV, and tea and coffee facilities in room, but bring hair-dryer. Rooms are very quiet, at least no.4 was, no traffic noise from the main road. Very well served by public transport to central Cambridge (buses 1... More

I spent one night at Carlton Lodge. It is well placed for central Cambridge, the technology park etc.All exactly as described on their website. If you are looking for something 'flash' it's not for you. The accommodation is simple, has a very friendly owner, is warm and clean and provides a substantial, though not cooked breakfast. I would definitley stay... More

I stayed 3 nights there. The room was clean with tea and coffee. The owner is very friendly. Surely at Carlton Lodge I found the best value for money option. I really liked it and recommend for short stay.

I had one night here only, directed there by the Cambridge Tourism Office. The good points - the room was quiet, the owner is friendly and welcoming, the rooms have flat screen TV and tea and coffee making facilities. But this is a very basic B&B, rather dated and with otherwise minimum facilities. The very small ensuite (ie no room... More

My stay in Cambridge was necessitated by working in the area for a few months. I stayed in various other establishments in the area before staying at Carlton Lodge and did not find the same value for money anywhere else. Carlton offers (to the best of my knowledge) the most affordably priced short-medium term accommodation in the Cambridge area. The... More

Our room was on the bigger side, clean but the bed was shortish. The shower is often a challenge in England. The Carlton Lodge provides parking and if full, there is free parking around the corner. While listed as a hotel, it really is a Bed & Breakfast.
