Very strange place. It seems there are no resident staff. The owner greets one effusively then disappears off the premises, never to be seen again. It felt like the Marie Celeste. Our twin-bedded room (No. 1) was "interesting". The furniture was old stained, as in marked, and not varnished. There was no sleep to be had as the coils in...

The lady who greeted us was friendly, the beds were clean and comfy and it was a relatively good night sleep albeit the creaky beds. The bathroom needed a lot of maintenance and it can get especially noisy during the morning. Overall, that part of the stay was ok. The pièce de résistance, the thing that stopped me from giving...

I'm afraid it was awful and I would never stay there again. On arrival at four in the afternoon there was nobody around to check us in. We phoned and were given the entrance code for the door and told which room we had been allocated, rather strange we thought. After humping our luggage upstairs we found the room. The...

Basically the worst B&B I've every come across, should be shut down. As previous review stated this doesn't even deserve 1 star. Felt unsafe, it was unclean and awful! I've added some pictures, The picture of the breakfast tray was given to us that evening for the next morning for all 4 of us, no toaster was supplied. People were...

My boyfriend and I cycled up to Cambridge from London over the bank holiday and booked this cheapy B&B as somewhere to shower and crash! We arrived and the lady who greeted us couldn't speak a word of English. She just showed us our room, The bathroom and pointed at the breakfast instructions! We went out for dinner locally and...

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...

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...

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...
