Just stayed at the Coach House for one night and were allocated room 10. The room was small and the bathroom smaller. When entering the room it smelled of damp and on closer inspection the shower had mould around the shower tray and the curtain also had mould on it. The toilet bowl could have done with a good clean as it was brown! We found the room so depressing that we actually paid to visit the Duxford Museum just to get out. The room was generally dusty. The bed was clean but you could feel every spring. Breakfast well what can I say - how anyone can spoil one is beyond me but the tomatoes had just about seen a pan, the mushrooms were microwaved and the sausage under cooked.

If you are disabled or unsteady on your feet then not a good place to visit as all the paths have gravel and unsuitable with heavy cases.

Not good value for money at £70 a night for two people.

The hotel was the worst hotel we stayed in over a six week trip through France and the U.K. The "one acre park" was a gravel parking lot. The room our traveling companions stayed in was ant infested and the manager blamed them for bringing in the ants! The rooms may have been "recently upgraded," but it is difficult to note how unless it was the new electric tea pot. The shower was so small the soap dish was outside the curtain and we could sit on the toilet and wash our hands at the same time. It was noisy, dirty and very uncomfortable.

We stayed for one night at this hotel. I was totally dissapointed with the hotel.

The room was poor- walls and ceiling were so thin than we could hear everything that was going around us. As the people in the room above were up early- we were not able to sleep being able to hear their every step above.

If you stay here ask not to be in room 8. The room was tiny- the toilet was like a hostel toilet and the room was in no way worth £73 a night. I've heard some of the other rooms were ok but if you stay here avoid number 8 and those in the same block as it.

The bizzare thing was the the hotel had called and taken full payment from my partner 2 weeks before we stayed meaning we are having trouble being compensated. Maybe that's why they get money upfront- so people can't refuse to pay as I would have done. My room was a poor excuse for accomadation.

This review has been brought to my attention by staff at Coach House Hotel. We are dependant to an extent on our guests feed back - good and not so and are grateful to those who take time out to correspond with us. It is true we had problems with air circulation since installing new power showers which has since been irradicated. All staff now have thorough training which has led to pride in their work and a clean guest friendly hotel.

The hotel is situated on a very busy main road, and there is traffic noise day and night. Bedrooms (in mock tudor style) are in seperate buildings around a courtyard. They are spacious and very clean, with small en-suite shower rooms. Bed was a bit on the soft side, but comfortable. Dinner was excellent and reasonably priced, breakfast good too. Service was exceptionally good. Staff were both attentive and courteous.
Only complaint was the heated towel rail in the en-suite was very hot and close to the WC and washbasin and one could burn themselves if not careful.

My family stayed overnight at the Coach House, Flintcross, Melbourn, Cambs...With two young boys my husband & I found the two adjoining rooms, both with ensuite shower rooms ideal. They were located across the courtyard from the main resturant/bar & reception which gave it te feel of a private apartment but with the convenience of a hotel. The staff were very friendly & the service was very good...The resturant & bar have a high standard of contempory decor. There was a private function in the resturant on the evening of our stay, but the staff offered alternative bar meals & even offered to serve meals in our rooms for us, with a yound autistic child this was an ideal option.The following morning the English breakfast was of a high standard (This again can be served as room service if pre- ordered) .
the only downside was that there was quite a bit of noise due to unsupervised children of guests at the private function running around the courtyard until late, which made settling our children to sleep difficult. This was not a reflection on the hotel as they did try to control this & offered sincere apologies the next morning without a mention of it from myself. The grounds are nice & there is ample parking available . All areas of the hotel & rooms were clean, The floors in the bathroom were spotless & there was no trace of dirt/dust even on skirting boards or in corners.......Overall I would defiantely recommend this hotel and would certainly stay again......I hope you find this review useful...............
