I had no choice of my accommodation this time, and would not have chosen this myself. This is more of a guest house than a hotel in the modern sense. Furnishing-wise, everything is either dark or patterened or both (including the white dining room walls that are stained with food and drink marks - for god's sake - if you... More

The room adequate and very clean although quite small. As it was raining we decided to eat dinner in, wish we hadn't it was awful. Breakfast was fine but it is a bit of a crush in the breakfast room and it seemed as though you were rushed along so that the table could be reset! Not the best place... More

I stay at this hotel regularly, typically 4-5 times a year. It is ideally located just 5 minutes walk from Cambridge station, which also helps if you need a taxi, often difficult to get in Cambridge ! It is a traditional style hotel rather than a modern corporate hotel, which I like. The rooms are perhaps a little small but... More

I stayed here 2 nights this week in June and could not have chosen better. If what you are seeking is comfort, friendly and professional service at a good price then this is the place for you. The rooms may be a liitle traditional but my bed was super comfy and spotless as was the bathroom. Plus the hairdryer was... More

I stayed one night on 2 June for a meeting the next day. The food was excellent, but the staff need to remember that you can hear everything they say in the kitchen in the dining room. My room was small but clean. I was near the stairs which was noisy. Parking is free and the wifi is good and... More

Our fault; didn't read the small print - but we made a booking through Booking.com which was advertised as free cancellation. There was actually a £20 cancellation fee from the time of booking which didn't become clear until the initial email response to the booking, so even if you cancel in good time, you will pay £20. Shall book more... More

I was a bit nervous after reading some if the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. I liked the old world charm decor - makes it different from the crowd. I was comfortable and happy to sleep in a very decent size bed and both dinner and breakfast were decently cooked. What makes it a nice place to stay though... More

I arrived late in the evening: the hotel is well placed for transport with its own free car park and it is near the train station. Plenty of buses into the city centre for the morning, I thought. First impressions: warm, welcoming, friendly, clean. Even a pen available when I had forgotten mine. However.... it was good for one night... More

Stayed here for five nights. Breakfast timing was short, 7:30 am to 9 am only. Hot breakfast was average but the service was prompt. No facilities except for a sitting/living room next to the reception. AA rated it 3 stars and it is probably accurate for a city like Cambridge. Interior decor of the room reminds me of the 1980s!...
