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.

I looked at the En-suite double room pics in the Internet and book it through, When I went to check-in She just shown me the ABSOLUTE CRAP IN THE ATTIC WITH TWIN BEDS AND YOU CAN'T EVEN STAND STRAIGHT THERE IN THAT CRAP(That's the room), WOULD U BELIEVE THAT I HAVE PAID £57 for a night & haven't spent 15...

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

I thought I had booked this hotel about four months ago for ourselves and our friends. We booked two double and one single rooms. We booked this hotel because it was walkable to the Corn Exchange in good weather and there was a good bus route if the weather was bad. When we arrived last week we were told over... More

The foreign lady who runs the place for the owner seems very good, although I think she has to apologise to many people for the state of the place! You can have a full English breakfast without extra charge, even though it is not mentioned on the website (the lady said that she had asked for this to be changed,... More

There was nobody to let me in when I turned up. I had begun to wonder if I had actually made the booking before the keeper drove up and immediately blamed me for the fact that she had not been there to welcome me upon my arrival, saying that I did not tell her exactly what time I would arrive,...
