This is a great hotel situated right in the centre of a beautiful city. It is close to everything you need - shops, museums, restaurants and the university colleges. The rooms feel very new, have a nice modern feel and most importantly the bed and shower were great! We had a spacious room with lovely views and were made to... More

The hotel probably isn't looking its best just now because of the ongoing renovations in the reception area but we had a pleasant comfortable room, a nice breakfast and excellent service. All we needed for a brief 1 night stay whilst in Cambridge. City centre location was very handy for us. Parking charges struck me as a touch dear though.

I was tasked with finding a venue for the office Christmas party. It was August and I needed to find a location in the centre of Cambridge, within walking distance of the office, but which also offered parking. There were no function rooms available when I was booking - the last Friday before Christmas for a sit down lunch -... More

We had a delightful overnight stay at the Cambridge City hotel, with particularly excellent service from Zoltan at breakfast. So refreshing to see someone with such excellent customer service skills - deserves a promotion! We had adjoining rooms which really made our family trip special, rooms were to a high standard. This was our second trip, will definitely be back.

I stayed here with my mum & 2 sisters for my mums 75th birthday, we did the same for her birthday treat last year too. The hotel is lovely, a real treat. Every staff member was helpful & polite, an extra special mention to Zoltan who bent over backwards to make our breakfast perfect...he's a superstar, moving at 100mph but... More

The hotel is in a perfect location, easy to find. The valet parking is expensive at £18 a night and I was not offered a choice or told what the cost was when I arrived. The rooms are comfortable clean and relaxing. Service at all times was friendly. Unfortunately when I asked for a table to be booked at a... More

My husband and I stayed here with our son for several nights before and including New Years Eve. Staff was great and the breakfast provided excellent . Was a great location for visiting all the sites of Cambridge while in town visiting our son who was a student at the University . Will definitely stay again when back to Cambridge.

Stayed here for to nights in January. Easy to find and close to all of the sights of Cambridge. The valet parking on arrival is a little weird, but check-in was fine. The room we had (on the fourth floor) was not huge, but was clean and comfortable. It was decorated neutrally, and had all that it needed. The general... More

As a regular visitor to this hotel I can honestly say it has no faults. The staff are wonderful, friendly, helpful and can not do enough to make your stay more welcome. The rooms are beautiful, the food is excellent and breakfast time is always very relaxing. I spent Christmas at the hotel and it was just like being in... More
