“OK for a 1 night stay”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

Had to find a hotel late at night around Cambridge, all city hotels where extremely expensive. So I ended up at Hamilton Lodge, I got a twin room with ensuite bathroom for 50 pounds. The room did match for price quality, the bedroom part was recently renovated I guess, looked nice had a nice bed. The bathroom part is now up for renovation in my opinion or at least for some good painting. too much mold here. Apart from the mold everything was clean. The breakfast is super (and was included in my 50 pound rate) wifi is free, also a pluss. Would I go back.... mmmm normally my standard is a bit higher but it was not too bad at all so if needed I would go back.

Room Tip: the front is to a quite busy road so maybe take a room in the back

We were happy overall with the hotel and in terms of what we paid satisfied. The breakfast was good, and the staff friendly. Large car park at rear which is a big bonus so we left the car and used Citibus route 2 which runs every 10 mins on weekdays. We booked a triple and were given a quadruple Room B3. Room was a little tired but adequate, extractor fan in bathroom didn't work. Big plus is location, you can walk into Cambridge across Jesus Green which we did first night and walked back.

Found this on late rooms,great little hotel,rooms excellent ,and you must try the breakfast also one of the best sleeps I have had,staff great and helpful ideally located for central Cambridge definitely one for the future given room on ground floor and was concerned about traffic noise but nothing could be further from the truth priced very cheap considering the location try this instead of the big chains

The Staff were most welcoming and helpful. I had a Good night's sleep in a good room with everything one may require, a comfortable bed, adjustable heating, which was welcome, all at a most reasonable price, which was upgraded to en suite. Will hopefully return, one day. Many thanks.

cute quiet hotel tucked away just minutes from city center. I checked in expecting the room to be small and stuffy, I got the complete OPPOSITE! I stayed for one night and fell in love. I had a single room with en suite, not sure if I was given a double room or if that was just the single, either way, I will def stay again! Taxi rides to city center are just about a fiver. They have breakfast in the mornings as well, but I overslept so I can't comment. Overall a nice hotel and can't wait to stay again

Room Tip: Get the ensuites, its only a few pounds extra

Stayed here twice in the last month for a total of 9 days and it was fine. The staff and breakfast were very good although the hotel is looking a bit tired. There was mould in my room under the bay window and some mould in the ensuite although to be fair it was minimal. The deocr is very dated as is the mismatch furniture in the rooms. Having said that though, was it clean - yes, was it comfy - yes, would I stay here again - yes. At the end of the day you get what you pay for - if you want a top rate room then the University Arms or Royal Cambridge will be happy to take your booking!

The Breakfast here is great...plenty of it well cooked and presented. Staff were pleasant and helpful and generally good company. to supplement the early morning in room cuppa they give you a thermos of cold milk which is a good idea.
Unfortunately the accommodation needs improvement to match the rest of the good points.
We were in the A block which had no heating running in it although the rest of the hotel was pleasantly warm. Our room was small and clean and reasonably well appointed. The shower room however was in need of some TLC. There is mould on the walls, the toilet was insecurely fixed to the floor and there were no shelves in this room to place wash bags and nowhere in the shower to put the shampoo or soap. Plentiful hot water though!
Outside our room,on the landing was a shower area and toilet which was not ventilated and lead to a smelly arrival to our room. it was also used frequently on the Saturday night ....little sound insulation between our room and this area...you get the picture.
It is a pity as the Lodge does have some good points and is well placed for a walk into Cambridge. Do not stay in the A Block is the best advice.

Room Tip: Do not choose A block
