Just a basic welcome. We have been allocated in room n° 1 just next to the entrance. We could hear everyone coming in and going out mainly "thanks" to the early birds and the large gaps all around the door frame. No proper double glazed windows so it was very noisy too because of the traffic. The bathroom was filthy,... More

I booked a single room for one night with separate toilet and shower. It was only £30 and I decided to add the breakfast for £5 extra. The room was small but functional. It was a bit tired decor wise but everything worked fine and the bed linen was clean. The shower and toilet were not far away and both... More

We booked through booking.com and were presented with the professional photos that can be seen on trip advisor as well. Based on this and other gleaming reviews we had read we booked straight away for two nights only to arrive and be told we had only booked for one despite our confirmation stating two. Net curtains were brown instead of... More

The Hamilton Lodge was bigger than I had expected and run like a hotel, not a guest house as I had expected. Although not in the centre of Cambridge, the city centre is within easy reach of the hotel. I was able to cycle along the river Cam to the centre in under 10 minutes. My single room was on... More

Stayed there last July and it fulfilled its role: it provided me with a good night sleep. Other than that, it’s a quite average place. It’s one of those places that you neither recommend nor tell people not go there. Then again, this is the UK we’re talking about. Budget travel isn’t synonymous with quality over there. I must say...

My husband and I have stayed here on many occasions whilst our son was at university. The service is excellent - lovely friendly staff and really good breakfast. The rooms are a bit shabby and the whole place would benefit from redecoration - but saying that we wouldn't stop anywhere else now - everywhere is spotlessly clean, staff can't do... More

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights for my friends wedding - I was really excited to get a 4 poster bed, but it was a bit of a disappointment. The place is ok, it is a huge rambling building, but the smell and atmosphere are rather drab and foosty. We had 2 TVs in the room -... More

Considering that in general the hotels in this city are crazily expansive, Hamilton Lodge offers a good deal. It is not "too" expansive, it's clean, close to the center, offers wifi and the service is good. Still, in another city the same hotel would be "far too expansive for what it offers".
