A fabulous estate and beautiful building - ideal for a relaxing stay. Primarily a Conference Venue but also great for an overnight stop. Room was fine, small but then I knew that when I booked it. The Terrace Bar is lovely but does completely lack any atmosphere. Bar food was ok - bit disappointing to be fair, very ordinary. Breakfast... More

We visited Madingley Hall for a family wedding. The place is breathtaking. The gardens are so well kept and beautiful. We were lucky for a sunny warm day and all the guests took advantage of this and kept walking in the gardens. So peaceful, so inviting, so wanting to return here again.

Last minute booking when looking for a reasonable hotel for business stay. Arrived very late at night and was warmly greeted by the night receptionist. Room was clean and presentable but the bathroom needs a little TLC. Unfortunately as with many internal bathrooms damp can be an issue and the shower curtain had a damp smell and there was a...

Although part of Cambridge University and mainly used as a centre for short courses and conferences it does offer public accommodation as well as catering for weddings and dinners. Set in beautiful peaceful parkland surroundings this is the ideal place for a reasonable priced retreat in close proximity to Cambridge. I have stayed there on many occasions. The rooms, all...

So I booked on a fairly last minute basis trying to find something not to outrageously expensive in Cambridge and Madingley Hall fitted that bill. However, despite such a beautiful building and amazing gardens, the Hall is very much an academics paradise and feels like a boarding school or halls of residence. The room allocated was on teh ground floor... More

An imposing entrance to Madingley Hall greeted us, although the sign at the entrance could have been made much larger. Car parking is available at the front of the building to unload cases - the main car park is a short distance away. Our room was quite a way from reception - basic with twin beds, TV and coffee making... More

Visited the grounds and gardens under the NGS scheme.... Superb topiary.... Beautiful lawns.... Immaculately kept. Lovely roses and herbaceous borders. Some delightful walks in the grounds... We wandered through uncut meadows down woodland paths.

The hall is situated in beautiful grounds and our room was spotlessly clean, with the added benefit of free tea and coffee at any time throughout the hall and the staff could not have been more helpful. The grounds are so tranquil and immaculately maintained. There were two functions on during our stay but neither caused any disruption to our... More

Impressive building in fabulous grounds but rooms are very small and basic. Even for a B&B, it's basic and should be thought of as halls of residence rather than somewhere to stay on business. The only reason I stayed was because I had a meeting here the next day. Plenty of power sockets, nice strong shower and free (slow) WiFi.... More

Madingley Hall is originally a Tudor house, though much altered; it's not really a hotel, but the University of Cambridge conference centre, which lets out surplus rooms on a bed-and-breakfast basis, with a discounted rate for Cambridge alumni. The Hall is some distance outside Cambridge, to the west of the M11, set in its own peaceful and attractive grounds. The... More
