I didn't stay here, I came here for dinner. The place is nice enough but its very dated, I guess some would say comfortable, but its very dark and lots of wood. The menu whilst ok just reminded me of the Beefeater and Berni Inns of old. The staff were nice and quite attentive

My wife and I have passed this hotel a few times and we though we would give this a go for an evening meal as an alternative to the excellent Blue Lion at Hardwick. First impressions were very good and went downhill from there. The portion sizes were large. Where we did find problems was with the food. My wife... More

This is the best country pub ever! It is very, very clean and it's run by the most friendly, welcoming people. I started going here 6 months ago and I now go once or twice a week, on the way home - sometimes for a coffee and sometimes for a meal. The food is great and not over priced. Big... More

Stayed as a one night getaway break. Room was clean and comfortable. Great location. Dinner was wholesome and hearty and served in a traditional manner with no fuss. Breakfast was excellent and freshly cooked. Just the right portion size. Best thing is the friendliness of the staff. Thank you Stephen and Sarah for a great stay. Will definitely recommend your...

How fortunate that our stay at Quy Mill last year was so disappointing otherwise we would never have found this wonderful hotel. Just 11 rooms but excellent in every way. Rooms a little small but very well presented. Dinner and breakfast both excellent. Quiet rural location but in easy reach of Cambridge, the A14 and the M11. The staff were... More

Arrived at Golden Ball Hotel by chances as some friends of mine dealt with the search of the location where to spend the New Years Eve we've found a very cosy and British place just outside Cambridge. The room, just few meters away from the main building, had a good size, was warm and clean and shown attention to details.... More

We spent New year’s eve at this pub and everything was lovely. In the restaurant the food was very good, the staff very friendly and the table setting very festive (with party poppers etc). The hotel rooms are clean and comfortable. Very good value for money.

The hotel is well located for the M11 and A14. The hotel is in two parts; the inn with a bar and restaurant and a couple of rooms plus a newer building, with modern rooms. All rooms are non-smoking and en-suite bathroom, large hanging space, kettle, small fridge and hair drier. The bed was comfortable but a little hard for... More

We chose this venue for our works Christmas meal. There were only a handful of us and after a small mix up regarding number of diners (not the Inns fault) they managed to accommodate us all. The table setting was very festive with crackers and party poppers. The food was served in large portions and very nicely cooked and presented.... More
