Wonderful central location. Welcoming helpful staff. Valet car parking was very efficient. Lovely spacious room with comfortable king bed. Spotlessly clean and well appointed with quality toiletries, bathrobes, slippers, etc. Delicious breakfast. Would definitely return to this hotel.

This hotel recently became a Hilton, but I stayed before this change of ownership. The hotel already had a somewhat 'sterile' atmosphere of a business chain hotel, but I'm sure some things have changed. The lobby area is bright and large, with an adjoining restaurant and a bar - all very newish. The reception staff was not overly friendly, and... More

Hotel has very good location, nice staff, helpful concierge and good facilities. Breakfast average for the hotel standing. Very good check in/out experience. It would need to renew a little all around since I had the impression that the hotel was a little old; there are Hilton Hotels where you have the impression that all is brand new. I told... More

I stayed for 1 night with my girlfriend. Bed was large and comfortable, room bright and nicely decorated. Staff very friendly and helpful. Parking is available but costs £22/day. Incredibly, that's cheaper than the adjacent municipal multi-storey car park. Breakfast is nice without being exceptional. One disappointment - the room didn't have a proper walk-in shower, instead you had to... More

My husband and I decided on a trip away to Cambridge for the weekend, we picked this hotel due to it being situated right next to The Grand Arcade, great for shopping! The room was modern & clean as was the bar, we quite happily enjoyed sipping a couple of drinks in one of the many comfy chairs. All staff... More

Good location in central Cambridge, though you'd be wise to use a car navi system to find the place down the little one-way streets. Car parking via valet service after your have checked in. Good clean rooms with usual Hilton toiletries and lovely soft towels, but no 24hr room service or minibar, so can't comment on the food. Staff helpful... More

Friday before Christmas and I was at the HCCC for dinner, including a room for the night. The place was full to the seams, the hotel bars heaving (in a good way mind). Wanting a quiet pint to myself before the hustle and bustle started, I decided to head to the ground floor and try Quinns Bar. I opened the... More

My heading says it all: Excellent location, Very comfortable bed, Spacious bedroom, Friendly reception staff, Bad service for breakfast. Breakfast service was very slow. I made a complaint to the hotel staff who took my complaint seriously. They offered me a small compensation for the hassle (my breakfast which i booked as room service did not arrive -stressful).
