Great location right in the heart of Cambridge and valet pariking a real bonus. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. All staff were friendly and professional making us most welcome. Breakfast was very good offering a full selection of both hot and cold buffet. Highly recommended.

Stayed two nights. Staff were really helpful from the moment we arrived with a lot of luggage and parking the car until the time we left. Breakfast really good. Only two slight criticisms. The room took a long time to heat up on a bitterly cold night and the lighting was inadequate for putting on make up .

All the elements of our stay were flawless: very central location, very quite, welcoming at the reception, fully refurbished rooms, very good breakfast and a very nice team. We'll certainly come back the next time we are in Cambridge

I am not sure whether the room was recently renovated but it was modern, crisp and clean. Good bedding, well equipped bathroom, free wifi, and with the benefit of a good sized quality tv with Sky. Well situated for the centre of Cambridge. Good breakfast variety with the benefit of freshly cooked fried eggs.

We stayed for two nights. Rooms very nice, with thoughtful details: heated bathroom mirror, tiny extra LED bedside reading lights. Breakfast ample, and service very nice. Only minor point was that the window was shut, for safety.

I would thoroughly recommend any company planning a corporate Christmas party to have a look at this hotel. The staff (and especialy our party planner, Charlotte) worked tirelessly to accommodate all of our requirements from meal choices, table arrangements and room bookings so that every part of our evening ran smoothly. The party itself was great fun and everyone (120... More

Friendly reception staff (lad from Grimsby). Room very well appointed, seemed to have everything you would expect. Quite a loud, but well-behaved, Christmas party going on when we came back, but none of this noise made it into my hotel room, so all was well! Only minor bugbear - the stairs were 'out of order' - had to use the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, hotel very nice, room very good, most of breakfast was cold to eat and the plates not warmed which would have made a difference, this was our only fault with hotel.To improve would not take much.

I stayed one night at this hotel for a work event. On arrival the concierge directed us up the escalator to the first floor where the reception desk, dinning area and bar are located. The room was located on the 4th floor at the back of the building. Well appointed, the room included plasmaTV with limited Sky programs, a spacious... More
