“DO NOT STAY HERE - I REPEAT DO NOT STAY HERE!!”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

The staff are not friendly or helpful and as they are foreign they have limited understanding of english. To be honest they really do not care about you! We stayed here as it was close to the train station but it is not close to the shops or town centre. I went here because it was my graduation and my husband and 12 year old daughter went also. The bedroom was very dark, filthy and very dated. There was little enough space for a double bed never mind a double and a single. The ensuite was so small and also filthy - the shower cubicle had been broken at one time and the owners had just brutally nailed it together with big clumsy nails. The door into the ensuite did not close and we had to put our suitcase to the door when one of us used the toilet or shower. The breakfast was minimal with little choice. We did notice that the table were all set straight away after breakfast so when you came down for your breakfast the next morning this delph and cutlery had remained on the tables overnight!! My cup was filthy one morning - it had the remains of someone else,s breakfast in it!! Our tv did not work and when we approached a staff member he tried to reset it and when that didnt work he just shook his shoulders and said"It must be the wind". The staff really do not care!! When checking out the manager did not even speak to us or make eye contact - he just wanted to get paid and get us out of there!! If you want a comfortable, enjoyable break away in Cambridge PLEASE, PLEASE take my advice and do not stay in this guest house. We are not a fussy family but when you pay £90 a night we do explect clean facilities, a good breakfast and helpful, friendly staff.

Northern Ireland.

We chose this guest house because it was near the Railway Station, but thought this and many other Cambridge Guest Houses seemed overpriced.
The cooked breakfast was acceptable, but with little choice. The family room was basic and dated, in need of a lick of paint. We were kept awake one night by a noisy neighbour playing loud music.

Cambridge is an expensive place to stay and The Bridge fitted into our budget, but to be honest if I had more time to plan I would have booked a cheapo-chain-hotel instead. The room was a reasonable size but the decor is seriously dated, and I doubt the furnishings were anything special even when new, the comfortable bed was let down by thin pillows. As a base for the town it did the job but I wont be in any hurry to return.

It's a bit thight everywhere. The bathroom is a converted wardrobe. And you can hardly walk around the bed. But all and all the place is ok. The staff is friendly and it's clean. Breakfast is good.

Room was over priced, out dated, cheap furniture with squeaky beds well past their sell by date. En suite was a horrible affair, it was dirty, pipes half hacked into the floor, hand prints and dirty Walls everywhere.
Just very old and tired and in drastic need of refurbishment.

Having said that, after talking to the manager we were released from the room without charge, and staff were friendly. We literally stayed half an hour in shock, and then found alternative accommodation.

I booked a single room, the en suite toilet was a patch-up job! the plumbing was dubious to say the least, the wash basin was in the bedroom, with the hot water and cold water taps separate??

The bed was ok, but not a 3star hotel worth! the neighbors were partying late, and hence could not sleep well.

location next to railway station and the city centre was good points! Missed the breakfast as it opens only at 7.30am.
