Leamington Motel Cambridge
Ranked #12 of 30 Cambridge B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Shabby chic or just shabby? So dated I felt it must be on purpose! We stayed overnight in a one bedroom unit. No complimentary milk on booking in (dairy across the road).Soap only complimentary toiletry. An array of notices stuck on wall "do your own dishes", "turn oven off" "no smoking" and others.
Narrow lounge area full with single bed/ set drawers/sofa/dining table/full size frig/small table against wall holding multiplugs for TV, fan,DVD,lamp. Concrete block walls. Horrible plastic flowers. Stains on carpet/mat.
Freeview/ no Sky TV. Located handy to town.
In the drawers was a folder of places to dine - sticky dirty folder and a mess of papers. Broken overhead lamp above bed in bedroom.
However - bed was comfortable - not sure what size but it seemed smaller than a Queen. The shower was adequate - not much pressure.
Overall - a tired motel badly in need of some cheering up and a more welcoming atmosphere.

Room Tip: On main road - not sure if front units get road noise - we could hear cars 3 units back.

All we needed was bed for the night as we were travelling on the next day. Very helpful staff - room nice and clean - just what we wanted.

Only criticism would be the the door lock was very fiddley to use....

Room dirty, things were broken (doors did not shut, oven door broken, holes in walls) to name a few). Motel staff told us not to check out early as she did not do mornings - we went to the office at 8.15 am and were greater by staff in their PJs. Decor very tired ands needs upgrading. I would not stay here again and would not recommend to anyone else.

We stayed here to get to Karapiro easily. The room was clean and suitable accomodation for our needs. We were welcomed with a friendly greeting. There are some shops just a walk away from the Motel to pick up a few needs. There is good easy access to get to the Cambridge town centre where there are some nice eating places.

I have recently stayed at the Leamington Motel and found it a most relaxing place . It is very reasonable ,clean and tidy. Very friendly staff. Clean swimming pool was most inviting. I can recommend to anybody looking for place to stay in Cambridge. My little dog was also made very welcome.

Room Tip: They have units of all sizes. All Quiet

We stayed here because it was pet friendly. We were the only ones staying at this motel during what we would have thought was peak season and now we know why. The room wasnt clean and badly needed a refresh. For the expensive tariff charged paid we were disappointed with the room.
