“Above average for a 3* hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

As frequent travellers and bearing in mind it was an Airshow week-end and the hotel was busy we found this hotel warm, comfortable, clean and tidy, ample parking and well kept grounds. On arrival we were greeted at reception and were asked if we needed assistance to our room with our baggage. Two little bug bears; had to find someone for a drink at the bar and the food was a little slow but when it did arrive it was tasty, hot and very good. We stayed 2 nights and the same staff for breakfast and dinner on the second night looked jaded

Room Tip: Room 9 on the top floor was very comfortable, had everything you needed and was quiet

my husband and i stayed for one night in an executive room! expectation- was very different to what we got. The room was very old fashioned, dark and too much furniture in there which made it feel cluttered. the mattress was very soft and left us both with sore backs. the bathroom was carpeted and gruby and the decor very tred. on arrival we were left standing in reception for 10 minutes before anyone came. when staff did appear they were unsociable verging on unpleasant.
we ate in the resteraunt, waitress was very pleasant and the food was nice.
following morning the newspaper that was ordered waited for us in reception, and not delivered to the room. breakfast was good.
checking out- staff was same lady who had booked us in and again i found her particularly unpleasant, no smiles or exchanging pleasantries, just took my money without a word.
all in all we wont be going again

I am a frequent traveller throughout the UK and at times Europe. This is my second visit to the Duxford Lodge Hotel. My client had previously told me about this establishment which they rated very highly but only recently were they successful in booking me in.
It is in a pleasant location with gardens surrounding it although only well groomed lawns were the order of the day when I visited (once with snow!).
Upon arrival I received a very friendly greeting and every thing was done to ensure I was aware of all the options available to me. The rooms are a little dated but must have been expensive to furnish, as the quality was very good, despite that the rooms suffered very little wear and tear. I noticed in another review the comment about the carpet in the bathroom and must agree, not a good idea. The rooms have the usual complementary Tea, Coffee and Hot Chocolate and a flat screen television.
The restaurant is again pleasantly furnished in half oak carved panelling in a Mackintosh type style, again very well kept. The food is freshly cooked and excellent with friendly attentive service. Upon arrival I was informed that dinner commenced at 7 pm however, preferring to eat about 6:30 the chef offered to start earlier, what more could you ask for?
This is a very pleasant, honest and traditional hotel where nothing is too much trouble, highly recommended.

Room Tip: I had rooms 5&6 during my two stays both good.

Very nice and familiar hotel out of the ordinary. Situated not far from Cambridge in a small town with the countryside nearby. Small house with different types and sizes of rooms and a graden outside. Clean, very good service, kind personel and a faboulus restaraunt. Intermediate prce range vith a good value for money with respect to the hotel facilities. Can clearly recommend the hotel.

Nothing too wrong, just tired and average. The sort of place your Gran would like. The rooms need some updating, the bed was awful, soft and spongy and the headboard banged against the wall as the bed wallowed around. Bathroom was carpeted; a pet hate of mine, altogether cheaply furnished and the shower was tricky to get right.

Staff not overly friendly, breakfast OK, well-cooked and decent selection. Public rooms and bar very quiet and old-fashioned, so we went to the pubs around the corner (the Plough and the Wheatsheaf).

It was convenient for our business visit to Duxford airfield, but other than that nothing special.

Wow. What a hidden gem, my wife and I were visiting the museum just round the corner so decided to book here after a google search bought up the hotel. Everything was just fantastic. The food, service and rooms were all way above what I expected and would deffinately stay here again.
