Perfect choice! Very close to the railway station, you can walk to the city centre very easily. Mr Anthony King, the owner, was a perfect host. Very kind to us! The room was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was lovely as well. We had a lot of options to choose! We were a couple, there were families with children which... More

Nice roomy space with bathroom. Owners let me have a double room for the first night at single rate even though my partner was not joining until the second night. Breakfast was nice although no fresh tomatoes . Helpful owners.

I was recommended this Guest House by my Sister. The owner was very nice, helpful and chatty. Very easy to find from Cambridge Train Station. My room was very clean, bed comfy, quality bed linen which smelled lush (I meant to ask the owner which fabric softener they used...) At first, I wondered where the shower and toilet was and...

The railway lodge is literally like 5minutes from the station and about 20minutes from the college, very convenient! Tony is really helpful and friendly - I booked online and check in/check out was very flexible, and the rooms are comfortable and clean. Sure it's not the newest building, but it's really cosy and they pay attention to the little details.... More

Great location, very near the train station, just as the website has described. We emailed some queries over after booking online and Tony responded promptly each time. We have a sense that he is a fair-minded proprietor because he under-charged us when there was an electronic glitch. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Monica, who gave us very specific directions...

The guest house was conveniently located about a 5 minute walk from the train station and a 10-15 minute walk to the town centre. My wife and I had a warm reception from Tony. The room was cozy, bed was comfortable, bathroom clean and breakfast was superb!

A very nice, clean guesthouse in a really convenient location. The staff were most accommodating, and a big thank you to the lovely lady who firstly saved our car from the traffic wardens, and secondly fed me a banana the morning after I'd drunk too much at the wedding we'd come up for. I'd be sure to stay here again... More

I have stayed in a lot of B&Bs and accommodation of various levels. This one was outstanding for the cleanliness and the character of the place. The proprietor was very accommodating and fair-minded although I changed my arrival time and arrived after the office was closed. The room (room 7 in the attic) was charming, shaped like a flipped L,... More
