We stayed at the hotel in 2011 when it had another name but the staff and service are still wonderful. This stay was towards the very end of a long busy holiday in the UK and we just needed to rest, which was so easy here. The best beds in the UK I'm sure...

It was our second time staying at this hotel and we weren't disappointed. We first stayed here three years ago and the standards have not dropped. The room was very clean and laid out tidy, the service was friendly and welcoming. The breakfast gave a wide variety of choices, continental to full english and was well cooked and filling. We...

The hotel room was clean. There was new carpet that needed to be vaccumed a few more times (it kept coming up on things left on the floor and it was horrible when I was packing my suitcase). Bed was comfy and shower was hot! Towels were also really good quality. The breakfast was great, good array of choices of... More

Was put in a room 2 floors above a noisy bar that didn't close until 1am, but was moved to a quiet room during the night and had 1 1/2 nights of good sleep, which is essential when on business. I was disappointed to be charged £5 for an extra 2 hours parking too after 3 nights stay. However, friendly... More

We have had several meals here over the last two years and have never been disappointed. If your'e in or near Solva then try the Cambrian Inn for good food. It does have free parking too though this can fill up at busy times.. It's just over the bridge st the bottom of the hill.

If you are looking to stay right in the heart of Cambridge and explore the City on foot, this is the place to stay. I really can't say anything bad about this place. The staff are very friendly and the rooms are fabulous and clean. We stayed here for two nights and had a great time.

Quite good hotel. Very good the location in the center of the town and close to a shopping mall. Good level of the service. The rooms are quite big but the price is a little bit high. Good breakfast. Difficult to park near to the hotel.

We stayed there just for one night. The hotel is very well located, right in the center of town. It is also adjacent to a shopping mall. The staff was attentive and friendly. I would choose the hotel again.

we spent two nights here. The first morning we were woken up by Jack hammers at 8:30am., we complained, got a "very sorry", when I pushed the dissatisfaction we felt, considering the cost of the room, they said they would talk to the manager. The result was, we were moved to the fourth floor with a promise that construction would... More
