Nice hotel, peaceful settings, friendly staff, good food, perfect for exploring Duxford.
Generally well run, friendly and human. Good food - standard pub food and slightly more adventurous things both well done. Nice location - good evening walks around. Nice that the bedrooms are in a separate wing away from any possible pub noise. On one occasion our room was not cleaned and the beds weren't made, apparently through an oversight. But as soon as we pointed this out, it was fixed. Though the rooms are new, there is insufficient ventilation - there is a skylight but it is too small and too low down to really provide much of a current of air, so the room overheats during the day and takes a long time to cool at night.
wonderful friendly staff and good food well cold showers in the morning and a late start for breakfast at 07.30 (all the guests were queueing for the excellent breakfast)
We just wanted a night away with a restaurant on site - this fitted our requirements perfectly because we had a delicious meal and spent the night in a very comfortable room which was detatched from the pub therefore nice and quiet. Breakfast the next day was also good. The staff were extremely friendly. There was only 1 member of staff doing breakfast and seemed to struggle a little to serve everyone.
The staff were Great ! The room was very new and modern and the food was top notch. The setting and the beer garden was very good also.
Bedroom was beautifully finished and furnished. Food delicious. Nobody available to check me in on a Sunday - this is not prominent enough on booking confirmation (it is one of last items) needs to be nearer top of the list so people are more aware of this.
Very helpful staff, good accomodation, relaxing surroundings and excellent food. A cut above your average inn accomodation. Do partake in the pudding club and/or chef's tasting menu when available.
Wonderful staff! Great food.
The Red Lion is very well appointed. The rooms are modern and spotlessly clean. The restaurant is excellant. None
Good room, good facilities. Nice to have a king size bed rather than a standard double. Parking good. Nice quiet location in village and rooms separate from the pub so again nice and quiet. Not a big choice for vegetarians. Didn't like the two options available though didn't ask if they could do something else. Extra pillows would have been good and Tv reception not good for bbc1.
The restaurant and bar staff were very good and helpful. I had to leave before breakfast and they organised a breakfast tray for me the evening before. When I arrived I was told they were closed (meaning the pub) and the lady who met me when I explained I had a room booked made me feel that I was an interuption to her busy day. She showed me my room and left very quickly.
The staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. The common room was friendly, the food amazing, the rooms where clean and comfortable, towels changed daily, and beds turned down daily. The greatest proof of the friendly staff came from a couple who where going to the same wedding as us. Their plane was delayed, and so they got in in the middle of the night. Instead of making this a negative thing, they owner/manager was concerned that they shouldnt have to get up early for breakfast (served til 9 on the weekends) and asked them if they wanted some sandwiches made for them to pick up when they woke up. This customer service seemed to run lik the lifeblood of this B&B. Great value and great service. The only thing that would have made the stay better, would have been if the bed was 10 cm broader. But I'm a big guy, so I cant fault them for that.
Charming exterior, nice location, welcoming bar area, room clean. Overpriced for the service offered - �96 for very small room and no breakfast incl (didnt stay for breakfast as �8 x 2 seemed expensive on top of �96 for very basic room). Shower curtain in bathroom was dirty and mouldy - strange as supposedly hotel just refurbished staff were efficient but not particularly helpful or enthusiastic. Check in was somewhat confusing as not immediately obvious where reception was located Map on hotel website was unhelpful. Entrance to car park is concealed and the roads in the area are part of one way system
quietness no plugs for electric razors in the bathroom
Very little No heating, no hot water, faulty kettle, faulty shower, shower tray overflowed
Ease of Parking and location. A birthday function was in full swing on arrival with a loud disco going until midnight but reception told me they couldnt change our allocated rooms to quieter rooms. Choice of Breakfast cereals limited to coco pops. Fresh fruit would have been nice at breakfast.
It was convenient for my requirements. The hotel entrance and car par was difficult to find and the hotel itself was drab and dreary inside. It smelt of cigarette smoke. There was no-one at reception when I arrived and no bell available to call anyone.
The period features, wonky floors, fresh clean bed linen, plenty of hot water for the showering. I couldn't fault the cleanliness of the bathroom. I thought the room was rather basic and small for a "Superior" room. I would prefer "real" milk and hot chocolate in the tea making facilities. The kettle also didn't boil but switched off too soon.
This hotel had plenty of "old world" charm and was located in the small town of Royston which had some interesting history to offer, particularly its cave, as well as being surrounded by pleasant countryside near to the city of Cambridge.
Staff were pleasant and helpful Problem with shower, would not turn off properly
Uncomfortable, soft bed.
Unpretentious Food not great. We only had breakfast.
To much road noise
We had a superiour double room and it was fab, it was like having a small apartment to ourselves. The room was clean and well presented with everthing we needed. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was great with a really good selection to choose from. There was a large car park so parking is not a problem. Was not able to spend more time there.
Very friendly welcoming staff, excellent food and good ambience
Friendly and very helpful staff. The relaxed atmosphere in the bar/dining area. The size of the double bed in room 8. The hotel is situated on the main road through the village which got noisy quite early in the morning.
the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very nice
Excellent staff. Very attentive. Good size comfortable room. No food after 9:00pm. Room too hot even with window wide open.
the atmosphere, the people where very nice.rooms were exellent, also the pub.and the town was nice
not much really room very cramped poor breakfast arrangements
Location to my business
It was an excellent place to explore historic Thaxted from whence my mother and her family came. The restaurant menu was a bit restricted for someone on a renal diet.
