While we were not overwhelmed with all the city of Cambridge had to offer we were thrilled to have had the good sense to book a room at the Railway Lodge Guest House. Close to the railway station and an easy walk to the town centre the manager and his wife welcomed us with open arms. We chatted for hours... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Railway Lodge. The owner was very friendly and courteous and was prompt in making/confirming our reservation via email. I did have to call (via Skype) to give him the credit card information. The location is very near the train station and a long but doable walk to the city center. If you don't... More

We are pleased that this guest & his family enjoyed their stay at Railway Lodge, as reflected in his review. This is gratifying for us. We do understand that location is significant to travellers and the French expression "pres du la gare" often connotes with convenience in planning a journey. However, as this experience traveller has noted, a little extra... More

This old style B and B is very convenient for the station (five minutes walk maximum). Anthony the Manager was very efficient and easy to liaise with. Breakfast service was good. The room was old fashioned in décor and the shower a little temperamental but the room was clean with all the usual amenities (tv, tea making facilities, toiletries/shower cap/towels... More

I had a lovely stay at this hotel. The breakfast was good although it would have been nice to have some fresh fruit and yogurts avalible. The room was just what I needed and lovely and warm too considering how cold its been. Not far to walk from the station or far to walk from the town but easy enough... More

I visited Cambridge because it's near Duxford Air Museum. I wanted a hotel near the railway station and this is near. Pretty basic place, more of a B & B. 15 minutes walk to the centre of the city. Nice staff, room was moderate but clean and everything worked. Free wifi.

We appreciate his positive comments about room facilities being in good working order and that the property is... More
