We booked this place after looking on line (forgot to check this website, unfortunately!) and found it wasn't the way it looked in the pictures. After a long drive form Windermere this place was an unpleasant surprise. The bed and mattress are way past due replacement, the room's tiny, the floor coverings throughout are threadbare and the shower just dribbles.... More

It has taken me 6 months to get round to writing this. I keep thinking of doing it, in an effort to stop other making the same mistake I did, but then I shudder, and find myself in a corner weeping. Ok. Bit dramatic perhaps. But this place was horrific. My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights in... More

We stayed here one night, choosing this for its location within walking distance of the Cambridge Folk Festival. We paid a premium price and the website led us to believe we would be staying in a boutique style b&b decorated to a high standard. We booked a four poster double bed. We did not see the room until we returned... More

We booked this B&B as part of a group of friends going to the Cambridge Festival six months before the festival. We rang the day before our arrival to confirm our booking, but the lady on the phone was "too busy" to check. We 'phoned again on the morning of our booking only to be told that we were moved...

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.
