“Good service does not compensate for all shortcomings...”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

Mary is lovely, and so is her little doggy and the B'fast assistance. Nice cooked breakfast and flexible service.
The rooms are really guesthouse-level, and we found them a bit overpriced for the size and the location (30 mins walk from the edge of the town centre, though with good city bus link). Beds/matresses are a bit too antique, and the bathroom is crammed with a few loose screws on the shower cabin too. However just enough comfort in the room, with free tea making too. Would recommend them only if places closer to town, with a better price/quality level, don't fit your wishes.

Room Tip: Back side has less road noise

We stayed 6 days at Amber Lodge and enjoyed our stay very much! The location (busses going frequently to the center) is excellent, the room very nice and quiet. You can choose your favourite breakfast and the time you want to have it! The breakfast is very nice and well-cooked! Mary is very kind, helpful and available for all kinds of questions. .Hence - despite the normal English weather (showers and showers) - we'll highly reccomend this B&B!

I stayed two nights at this bed and breakfast. Very warm and friendly welcome from the owner, and the breakfast was lovely. You can choose in advance what you want to eat and the time. I had a small room facing Newmarket Road, but it was very quiet. Free internet was really appreciated. There is some parking in the property (which is not easy to fit into), but plenty of parking right in the vicinity. I would recommend this hotel.
