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

I felt rather special when I turned in through the gates and rode past the lake, up a gently curving drive flanked by grand trees and carpets of daffodils. Take the chance to walk around the grounds before you settle in for the night. They are delightful. I had booked a basic, single room and it was spotlessly clean and... More

Basic small room in separate area from grand building, it needs to make up its mind what it's trying to be. No restaurant, no lounge, certainly more of a hostel. Pricey for the room and small bed and very outdated small bathroom. The website is deceptive showing a grand old room, not in fact what people are staying receive. Shown... More

Despite the weather being dull the building and its surroundings could still be appreciated. Thought food could be improved with breakfast better than the dinner offered. Noisy doors to rooms which, although well appointed, were let down by very low handbasin.

The villa is wonderful and placed in the country amid a private park and it is amazing. very nice place to have meetings and events. It is somehow in the middle of nowhere so you are likely to be stuck there unless if you want to spend lots in taxi. If you arrive after 8,30pm there's no chance to get... More

First things first. This is a 5* Campus, as in, very posh student accommodation, not a 5* hotel. The rooms are small and not massively comfortable, as are the beds, and the bathrooms may have been refitted at some time in the last 4 decades, but it doesn't show. Also, the walls and floors are like paper. You WILL hear... More

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
