Enjoyed my stay here. Comfortable room in lovely surrounding 's. History all around you. Good breakfast and friendly staff. Would definitely stay again. Room was warm and a good size. Close by to Cambridge with easy access to the park and ride bus service as parking in Cambridge is a struggle.

Stayed 2 nights as part of a training course. The building and grounds retain Elizabethan grandeur, but the Hall is a functioning modern space with up to date facilities.Room was excellent and the breakfast selection was extremely varied, and fully enjoyable. The lunch buffet was also outstanding. All staff were very helpful and extremely friendly. If you don't have a... More

Beautiful building, clean bedrooms and such friendly, welcoming staff. Everyone we met took genuine pride in working in the hotel and was anxious to ensure that we had the best possible experience. You couldn't ask for more.

A beautiful building & grounds dating from the 16th century. Breakfast is quite an occasion (and very good) as it is available in the grand dining hall and you eat at long trestle tables. As others have advised Madingley Hall is part of the University of Cambridge so the bedrooms are quite small and basic. However, they are fine for... More

Lovely historic building with formal gardens. The rooms are student type accommodation and very clean and functional, they have a desk and tea/coffee, good wifi for free. Breakfast is included but finishes at 9am. Nearby is a very good pub resturant, not cheap but excellent and only a 3 minute walk. The tower area for accommodation I found a bit... More

I was staying here as part of a University course. My twin room in the new ' tower' was lovely, spotlessly clean and quiet, plain/simply furnished but conformable nevertheless. The breakfasts were excellent, using locally sourced ingredients. Cambridge very near for access. The reception staff ( a tad dis-organised on occasion) were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this... More

Stayed at Madingley Hall last week for 2 nights whilst visiting family. It is a beautiful building in fantastic grounds. Staff very nice and helpful. Our twin room was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was historic. Will look to stay again when I next visit Cambridge.

Delightful character building surrounded by beautiful grounds. Peaceful and quiet location. Ideally located to all amenities. Comfortable bedroom with en-suite bathroom was ideal for 2. Delicious cooked breakfast, or continental should you wish, excellent staff helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend to all.

Stayed one Sunday night after a lovely day at the Uni in Cambridge, in a double en-suite room. The property is spectacular on the approach and is set in lovely grounds. The rooms was clean, functional and simply furnished; as was the bathroom. But beware, the usual toiletry "amenities" are few and far between. Though tea/coffee making items were present.... More

Madingley is situated a few miles outside of central Cambridge and the location is perfect for people wishing to spend time there without staying in the busy city itself. Madingley Hall is a beautiful place and very peaceful with the studious atmosphere of a Cambridge college. The gardens are lovely and although the rooms are quite basic the facilities were... More
