The Red Lion, Cambridge
TV didnt work in room and couldnt be fixed, looks like country pub but in like an industrial estate next to train station said parking was free on booking but asked to pay, they did refund when i told them it was included. Nice food in the hotel and lovely breakfast

Get the Booking Right,
Nice room but we booked a twin , not a double and the noisy kitchen fans were right outside the window. We transferred to the Holiday Inn Express next door !!!!! The breakfast we took at the Red Lion and it was very good although service a bit slow.

Near Cambridge stop-over
Stayed @ The Red Lion on the way to Cambridge after flying into Gatwick. Being a 700 year old pub (coach roadhouse) there were always going to be some short-comings and I expected the low door ways however the room was very small. Overall an experience that wasn’t bad.

Cheap but dusty!
For the price we paid, the Red Lion was fine, though I have to say they need to get the dusters out! Also, we had to ask for milk every day for our room, and tea and coffee were not replenished.
