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".

Enjoyed our long stay here and were impressed by the staff and the quality and choice of breakfast. Rooms are clean and quiet and if you do not mind a good walk it is easy to walk into town along the river bank. Walk takes about 20 minutes.

I stayed at this hotel with my girlfriend for a couple of days when we were in the process of moving to Cambridge. The hotel is clean and we found the rooms quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was good and the staff were helpful. Unfortunately, the location isn't great, it probably takes around 20-30 minutes to walk to the city... More

We stayed for one night and paid £60. It was one of the cheapest around with a car park. It was pretty basic, room needed a lick of paint and clean around the skylights. Remote didn't seem to be working, only one teabag, breakfast was again quite basic. Fine if you are out all evening but was warn against room... More
