I would advice if you have no choice but to stay in this awfully arranged business that provides no help whatsoever to the customer when in an uncomfortable situation you should think twice because even then anywhere is better than these apartments. The owner of the business from what I gathered from the very stressful and fruitless telephone call is... More

We stayed for a weekend in August. We had pre arranged to meet the Keyholder at 3.30 on Friday and arrived 15 minutes early which meant she was embarrassed, when she arrived 5 minutes later, to have kept us waiting. The apartment had a large bedroom with a Sofa and sitting area, and a small Breakfast bar/table to eat off.... More

Just a warning re: these apartments. I was about to book Octavia Apartments for a long weekend next week through Last Minute.com / Expedia / Bookings as they all showed availability for the same price. However before I entered my details I wanted to check whether there was parking on sight so I rang the phone number on the Octavia... More

We have just returned from a three night stay in the Octavia Aparments in Cambridge. We booked the Double aparment via the Octavia Apartments Website and although we cannot argue the apartment was good value for money at £80 per night there were many negatives that should be reported. We were informed on booking that we would be met by... More

This was a large (self-catering) apartment that is in a residential building within a 5 minute walk to the Cambridge train station. We paid about 80pounds for one night, and it was definitely a good value considering the amount of space - nice-sized bedroom with quality linens and a wardrobe, large living room-dining room combo with a fully-stocked kitchen attached...
