I unfortunately found myself at the mercy of Aylesbray Lodge's proprietor - a certain George Pippas - when I booked a couple of rooms at the lodge for my family and sadly had to cancel the booking again. I called George within minutes of making the booking to try and cancel the rooms again, and I mean literally within five minutes - only to be subjected to a lengthy monologue about "hotel rules" and because I had booked through bookings.com it was now "impossible" to cancel the booking without a full penalty charge. I called Bookings.com who in turn advised that it was completely up to the owner whether or not he would allow me to cancel the booking. I then called George again to see if I could not appeal to him and come to some arrangement but was instead shouted at repeatedly for this being my mistake and how he will HAVE to charge me the full 100% rate and finally he compared me to a thief saying "if you steal a bottle of wine from the supermarket you dont tell the police that you will only pay half back!"....I am not sure I followed his reasoning, if anybody is having their money taken for nothing in return it is me. At any rate, I felt the need to warn people away from this establishment as the owner certainly in my experience came across as seriously unhinged, rude and money-grabbing. Would not want to find myself within his hotel. Besides, there are a lot of other, much nicer, more reasonable hotels and B&B's in much better locations around Cambridge.
