Cambridge is not well known for quality hotel accommodation at a fair price. This hotel has had a bit of a makeover since I last stayed. It has lovely staff in the downstairs restaurant and very helpful owners. The building though is a bit of a rabbit warren. I was in a third floor room and had to climb 30... More

This hotel is well placed both for the railway station and walking to city centre. The staff are very friendly and helpful, however I would concur with other reviews that it is wise to ask for a room away from the main road. It did not help that Cambridge drew with Man United one night I was there. The night... More

Generally a lovely stay, although it was a wee bit hot in the room. You couldn't swing a cat in there, but who cares? It's a well-priced hotel in the centre of town. The key selling point is that the service is wonderful - there is real warmth in everything any of the staff do - and that was tested... More

We ate both dinner and breakfast in the charming little restaurant downstairs. Exceptionally good service and value £16.50 dinner for 3 courses . Good choice of food and... More

Requested a quiet room. Got a room not facing the street in the newer built part of the hotel so we were given the best to get. Walls were okey, the windows could be better but the truly weak point was the wooden door that let in every possible sound possible outside the room and even from other rooms. We... More

I stayed for one evening and would not do so again. The room I was allocated was at the top of the hotel. There was no shower and the hose from the water taps had to be held by hand, most unsatisfactory. The towel provided was the equivalent to a hand towel. The lighting was poor in the room. The...

Clean and neat, room and bathroom very small, especially for the price (£150/night). Could be just high Cambridge prices in general though... Nothing was particularly impressive nor disappointing, all in all very average.

My husband and I stayed this hotel. The location is near Cambridge railway station and leisure centre include cinema, restaurants, supermarket, and town centre are walking distance. This hotel is well designed, functioned for the guests like carparking locates their courtyard and although this hotel locates along main road, there are many rooms locates far from the road which are...

As others have said it is rather expensive for what you get and what you get is something going back about thirty years. Décor is very 80's but the bedroom was clean and an interesting bathroom in a cupboard. We experienced the dinner service - again rather old fashioned including the menu, but the food was reasonable and we thought... More

Good location but exorbitantly priced. OK - most hotels in Cambridge are, but at over £100 for a single room at the end of October, this is greedy. Room and decor OK but very poor breakfast. Poor range of cereals. No fresh fruit or yoghurt. Only industrial sliced bread. Tasteless scrambled egg. Breakfast room too small for number of guests.... More
