Our stay here couldn't have been worse: the owner had a dog that barked constantly and was allowed to roam around the B&B; the breakfast does not include a full English and is delivered to your room at 830am on the weekends; the breakfast itself was comprised of cheap cornflakes, a yogurt and cold toast; the rooms are not ensuite...

Having read the reviews on here, I was absolutely dreading my stay here! The good thing was that I was dreading it so much, that I was actually pleasantly surprised! The room was clean and tidy and the bed was comfy. They have maybe been reading comments about lack of provisions provided because there was plenty of tea, coffee and... More

We knew when we booked it would be basic, but there were a few things not right. Sheets that didn't fit the bed, no choice on the cereal for breakfast, no knife to cut the scone, no butter or jam on the second morning, the cold tap was loose, no way to wash or dry your hands in the loo... More

Just to add my thoughts on Jan Y's posting. We were in the group of 5 guests who had booked (some months ago), one night at Brooklands B&B,including cooked breakfast and en-suite.As Jan rightly says we were only told on arrival that we had been moved to the Mowbray, "our sister hotel" !! We never saw anyone at all which... More

This is the sister 'hotel' to Portland Guest house on Cherry Hinton Road. I was under the impression that I had booked at the Portland Guest house. However on arriving there was directed, over the phone, to this dump. We had two doubles and one single room (ensuite - joke) and paid £75 and £55 respectively for B&B. This must... More

This has to have been one of the most laughable and scary experiences, on booking I was lead to believe that it included breakfast, on arrival we were told it was already in our room, this included a tray with a few boxes of cereal, uht milk, and a few sachets of coffee , the rooms were really basic but...

It's stretching things to say this is a Bed and Breakfast. Breakfast constituted a packet of cornflakes, UHT milk and a carton of orange. For some unknown reason there was tea, coffee and jam but no mugs for tea or coffee and nothing to spread jam on. The shower leaks. There are no staff available at any time of day... More

We arrived before check in time, so we had to wait a little because the B&B personnel comes just for that time. It was not a problem, because the specifies it clearly in the booking form. The toilette and shower was "shared", but there are so enough toilettes and shower that it was barely noticeable. The room was spacious, fresh,... More

We booked the Mowbray B&B for a wedding with a check in time of 12-2.00pm. This time is given by the hotel as the prescribed time you need to arrive to be greeted, unless you want to use a key code to get in. We arrived at 12 as we needed to walk to a wedding for 1pm and needed... More
