Beware, don't book the Brooklands, Ashtrees or Mowbrays guest houses in Cambridge. Booked for one night for me and my husband for his birthday treat at the Brooklands Guest House in Cambridge, 95 Cherry Hinton Road, Cambridge. I then realised it was too far from our favourite Cambridge restaurant Browns (awesome restaurant) and punting, so cancelled the same day I... More

This is a nice B&B with easy walking access to Cambridge and the colleges. We stayed in the attic room 2nd floor (level 3 American). It was small, but comfortable. The breakfast was very good. I booked with a Credit Card, but cash seemed to work better for paying the bill. We had free parking and a comfortable bed for... More

I wasn't really sure what to expect so took a leap of faith and booked one night at this Guest House. To say the rooms are small would be an understatement and 2 people navigating the room was impossible. On entry I knew I had made a terrible mistake. On a plus side the owner was helpful and the bed... More

I only regret not having read those Reviews before. Unfortunately, I have to agree on all the negative points that have already been mentioned here... The only positive things is the location however, Travellogde is defninitely the better choice. Brooklands is a rip-off .

I booked the four poster room in September through their own website "brooklandsguesthouse.co.uk" for two nights as the pictures looked lovely. However after reading some of the horrendous reviews on Tripadvisor, I cancelled the booking the next day. My card was debited for the full amount immediately on booking. Their cancellation policy states,and I qoute - "Cancellations If You cancel... More

I stayed in Cambridge for three days. The place is very old and needs a serious touch. Very dirty floor and shower was not working even after changing rooms. Staff not really helpful. After reporting my problems they were not fixed and I was still charged the full price.

We booked this B&B for its location near the railway station, and because of the photos on its website which showed light, airy, spacious rooms with 4 poster beds. The reality was very different. Forget the 4 poster bed, the double bed practically filled the very cramped, awkward room, and there was almost nowhere to put anything. The bedside tables... More

I stayed at this B and B last Saturday as I was watching a theatre performance at the nearby Homerton College. I was a bit concerned after others' reviews and maybe my expectations had been lowered by what I'd read. Unlike others, we had booked the "four-poster" with en-suite and that's where we stayed. (We did phone the day before... More

You book this establishment at your peril. I booked it online, choosing it mainly because of its convenient location. I arrived at 7.45pm with my written confirmation. To cut a long story short I couldn't rouse anybody using either of their doorbells or by knocking, so rang their number. The lady who answered told me that I had been reallocated... More
