Just stayed for one night with my daughter. This hotel is small , charming and convenient. The rooms are not huge but are very clean and well equipped. Wifi good service . 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

We booked this hotel for a weekend in Cambridge and picked it mainly due to the location. It is ideally located - only a ten min walk into town, 5 min walk to the station and cinema and minutes away from from all the shops, theatres and colleges. Everything is on your doorstep and there's no need for taxis or... More

Our double room was in the attic. With reduced head height ceilings. Had to turn the pillows to bottom of the bed to ensure we did not knock ourselves out if getting up in the night. Also very hot up there in the attic. Good free parking. Really nice hot breakfast.

This hotel is in a great location just at the edge of the city center (5 to 10 minute walk in). We stayed there as we had an evening booked at 'The Junction' music venue which is just a 5 minute walk away. It's also very close to the Botanical Gardens. The room was clean and freshly painted and towels... More
