Pros: The façade is the best thing about this establishment and totally belies what lies within.
Cons: EVERYTHING!!!!!!!
The room and facilities were dirty and breakfasts disgusting. We would never recommend this establishment to anybody. We only wish we had done a little more research before making our booking.

Shelford Lodge okay, but need transport to access.

Location: Walk around the centre of town and see wonderful architecture (it's like being in a Harry Potter movie). Take a punt ride down the river Cam.
Shelford Lodge was okay. You would need a car if you wanted to stay there because it is quite a distance from the centre of town, although the literature in our room indicated that there is a bus stop close by. We stayed in Room 0 which had an ensuite. There was a pleasant view out the window (lovely trees), and the room was warm and comfortable, but tiny, so little room for 2 large bags. In the ensuite, we were not sure if the toilet bowl was just discoloured, or absolutely filthy. There was off-street parking. Breakfast was okay.
