I booked a night at this place online. The booking confirmation said I needed to inform the hotel if I was going to check in after 11pm. As it happens, I did need to check in after 11pm so I rang them. No answer. Rang again. No answer. I rang about 20 times throughout the day without an answer. I... More

I thought that the staff were professional and friendly (at least the Polish manageress who attended to us) and the place was clean and well run. We weren't aware when booking that this was above a nightclub; I suppose we should have looked. However, I don't believe I would have agreed to the price charged had I known I would... More

Awful place. Website had warned that it was noisy at weekends because of a disco but I stayed midweek and thought it wouldn't be a problem. Wrong! Shouting and banging in the street to 4 am and then ..roadworks started. The place itself is shabby; TV in room didn't work, cold tap in bathroom didn't work. Bed was clean and... More

While the staff here are quite nice and very helpful, the accommodation is quite intolerable. They have shared bathrooms in case you didn't notice during the booking and no parking. And parking in Cambridge quite a challenge. Don't expect to get much sleep on the hard beds and with all the noise on the street outside. We heard the lady... More

We live in cambridge and our son had a French exchange student staying, so we had taken him around the sights and he had asked if he could try some " Fish and Chips " we were walking past The Castle and they had that on the menu. The waitress was really nice however the food was pretty awful :... More

Several of us stayed at The Castle for a Hen Party, wasn't expecting much and just a place to rest our heads but this place is awful. Own arrival staff in the bar underneath were very rude and not helpful at all, stored out bags in a little room next to the bar. Returned back to the hotel at 10pm... More

In brief: 45 minute wait for soup and sandwich. Only one round if drinks offered, given soda water instead of lemonade, twice. Food cold and tasteless. The setting... 2 members of staff front of house, 2 staff in the kitchen. 2 couples already eating and one family of 4 finished there meal. We arrived for lunch during our break meeting... More

I booked the Castle as it was in cetral Cambridge and I wanted to walk around the town centre for the weekend. I arrived to check in and I was told that they'd over-booked and that they had booked me into another hotel. I was in a bit of hurry to get to a wedding, but they took an hour... More
