Don’t have room 7

Posted 07-Jan-2018 on Hotels
Stayed in room 7 at the top floor. Arrived into the room and it was freezing and the heating didn’t work well. I had a water tank above which sounded like someone was going to the toilet all the time. Bed was uncomfortable. I asked for another room and they gave me an executive suite. Food was good and reasonably priced. I did walk round to the pub which is a couple of minutes away and was very good.

Excellent hotel and restaurant!

Posted 03-Dec-2017 on Ebookers
Pros: Location, ambiance and cleanliness.
Cons: N/a
Had an excellent stay at this place - I was there for 1 night. They have also recently opened a restaurant - delicious food and the staff was so humble that they even made a special meal for me, to cater for my dietary requirements (as I'm vegetarian). Would definitely come back if I'm in Cambridge. Its a family run lodge and the staff was also flexible with check-out time. One thing I would recommend for improvement is to have portable heaters in room, if the guests need it. It was snowing the night I was there, so I had requested for a portable heater and it was brought to the room immediately.

Hotel Close to the Imperial War Museum in Duxford

Posted 28-Aug-2017
Pros: Public rooms were good, overall building has definite 'kerb appeal' and the staff were extremely helpful.
Cons: décor of the bedrooms
The hotel is in a very nice building and grounds. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The public rooms and overall grounds are very nice, clean and tidy. However the room we had, although being a good size, the décor was extremely tired (wall paper lifting at the edges down all seams on both the walls and ceiling. The bathroom was also very tired with some mould spots on the ceiling and grouting. although the restaurant was not open during our stay we found a wonderful pub in the village (5 minutes walk from hotel which I strongly recommend if you are in the area - John Barleycorn).

Very overpriced - very poor hotel

Posted 16-Jul-2017 on Hotels
Arrived to check in at 3:00pm - was supposed to be available from 2:00pm. Nobody around - phones contact no on front door - no answer. Waited for 45mins before someone let me in. Room not very good - tv screen very small - decor and furnishings very old style - no toilet roll on holder - no new soap - very disappointing for £348.00 for 2 nights - in fact so disappointed didn't stay the second night - drove 175 miles home instead.

Hotel Stay

Posted 07-Jul-2017
Pros: Close to the museum.
Cons: Maybe a shuttle to the museum would have been very helpful. It was a long and DANGEROUS walk for us.
Location: The Imperial War Museum A great pub around the corner. The people at the pub were especially friendly.
It was close to the war museum which was our targeted stay. The staff was helpful, but the first day it way a little understaffed. Some of the grounds could use some sprucing up. Very good stay.

A comedy of errors

Posted 15-May-2017 on Hotels
We arrived an hour after earliest check-in to be shown a room we hadn't booked. After a lot of searching on the computer, our room was found. It wasn't ready but would be in '5 minutes', half an hour later it wasn't, so we dropped off the bags and went out. When we got back, we checked the guest information in the room - soup and sandwiches were available on a Sunday night. When we got to the bar, we were told they weren't. The information also told us about the dinner menu (and the hotel sign states that lunch and dinner is available to non residents). We asked to see a menu - there is no dinner. I don't remember having to ask previously for 'no herbs' on my full English before - I should also have said 'and no pepper'. I should also have asked for the toast to be served on a side plate and not the main plate. The last morning we arrived later than normal for breakfast but within the time stated in the guest info - breakfast was over. To be fair a member of staff came to our room and offered to make breakfast for us, but what had been vaguely amusing for the last few days was no longer funny and we just wanted to leave. The room and en suite were clean, but if you want to stay in Duxford, we would recommend the John Barleycorn where the food and service were great. We had the feeling that the Duxford Lodge Hotel would soon be on the market as a building plot with planning permission
