Stayed for one night over the weekend and while the room was to a very high standard with an excellent bathroom the stay was spoiled by the noise coming from the Irish bar downstairs. Having returned to the room about 11.30 at night after dinner I got to 'enjoy' the music and bass for another hour or so before it... More

White and shiny tourist hotel and so a little at odds with the ancient city but with an excellent position in the centre of things and this is a place where you have to walk! The best equipped and immaculate bedroom I have had anywhere. International staff welcoming and helpful, especially those at reception. Self-service breakfast is managed at speed... More

The brand new refurbishment has been highly successful. The rooms are well equipped, quiet, air conditioned and of adequate size. The staff were very obliging and service levels generally were excellent. So why only four stars? The basin tap wouldn't produce hot water, although there was plenty obtainable via the shower. The bread at breakfast was uniformly cut-loaf supermarket style... More

This hotel ticked all the boxes for us. Our room was clean comfortable, and well equipped. The staff were universally competent and friendly. A very good, buffet style breakfast was provided. The location, right in the centre of Cambridge, is excellent By booking some 2 weeks in advance we got the benefit of very good terms

Great city centre location, short walking distance to just about everything the city has to offer. Hotel is clean and staff polite. Room is good quality, free safe and free wi fi. Breakfast is first class, other than stone cold plates for the cooked breakfast, so eat it quick or it will go cold. My only real negative is that... More

Perfect location for our short visit. The rooms was rather small but modern and clean. Food is great and valet parking a big plus. We only took the car once for a trip to Ely but apart from this walked everywhere in the city. Will definetly be back.

Love the valet parking - £18 from 11am Tuesday till 2pm Wednesday which is not bad at all for central Cambridge. Both the Reception Staff and Concierge were very friendly and efficient. Room was ready for check in at just past 11am, which was a pleasant surprise. 2 very comfortable double beds in our twin room with lovely pillows. Decor... More

Good location. Pleasant corporate hotel and therein lies the problem. I left an item in the hotel room and have been charged for its return. Given the high cost of the room- and the fact that 3 rooms were booked, there was no flexibility in waiving this fee. Rather disappointing and a lack of understanding of customer service. Small things... More
