Carlton Lodge
Ranked #79 of 126 Cambridge B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 December 2017

The owner is very nice and friendly always after a good chat, breakfast was ok. This B and B has 8 rooms, 3 of them shares a bathroom. My single room is absolutely tiny, has not got a desk or table. The sink is also very, very tiny, making washing up very difficult and no way you can to the kettle baca use it's so small. The bed makes noise every time I move. The bathroom is very, very small. This B and B needs some work done as things are very tired. You get what you pay for, but after all but it was not that cheap that I paid. Overall it is ok for a quick stop over in Cambridge, I don't think it is that suitable for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Get an double room.

Was on a visit to Cambridge in Nov 17 and stayed at Carlton Lodge on Chesterton Road.
A basic B&B place but run by a very kind hearted gentleman Ciaran Stickeley... It is not a hi-fi place but a nice warm place with a very nice caretaker..
Definitely recommended for anybody looking for a reasonably priced stay with a kind hearted gentleman.

The only good thing about this place was how nice the owner is. What a lovely helpful lady. But...it smells awful! Fusty and damp. Worst nights sleep ever. Rock hard pillows. Mould on windows. Very very dated decor and furniture. Awful bed.

For what I paid I couldn't fault the place. Shared bathroom is never the dream but it was fine. Bed was comfy, decent tv, internet signal wasn't great from my room 6 though. Breakfast is cereal and toast etc. Owner could talk a glass eye to sleep, lovely fella. Will use again.
