If you plan to visit the Cambridge area, consider a stay at the Ambassador Lodge in Milton - close enough to Cambridge, but without the traffic/parking hassles. We very much enjoyed our two-night stay in mid-July 2012. The owner, Phil Turner, was a very genial host and whipped up some very tasty breakfasts - my wife was particularly fond of Phil's morning coffee. Having two young children, we also appreciated the fact that the Ambassador Lodge welcomes kids and had games and toys that our kids enjoyed playing with in the reception area. The proximity to the Park and Ride in Milton was a big plus. Having seen how congested Cambridge can get and after hearing how expensive it can be to park there, it was nice to just hop on a bus and leave our rental car in the Park and Ride. We also enjoyed some very good evening meals at a nearby Freehouse, Jolly Brewers. We highly recommend Ambassador Lodge and what's in its environs.
