5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our first visit to Cambridge did not disappoint. Doubletree Cambridge is in the best location, right on the river and a short walk to all the attractions in Cambridge. The staff were very cheerful and nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the bar, lamb burger and beef burger, both were delicious. The Cambridge Ales on offer were also... More

I visited The Hilton yesterday as part of a 'Hen Celebration' for my future daughter in law. The selection of sandwiches, cakes, etc was very good and the waiting staff were all very good. The view from the dining area was lovely and we all had a great time. Would happily return.

We stayed on a Saturday night and were really impressed with the central location on the river. The staff were friendly and efficient, the cocktails in the bar were extremely good and the buffet breakfast offered an excellent selection of hot and cold choices. The rooms weren't fancy but were clean comfortable and nicely furnished. We would stay in this... More

I visited for a birthday celebration and we all had cream tea. Must say I was disappointed with the sandwiches which we below a good standard but the cakes were delicious and well presented.. our waitress whose badge said Fay was fantastically attentive and a delightful young lady which made the experience very pleasurable. Thank you.

The hotel is very conveniently located in the heart of Cambridge with lovely views over the river. This is my second visit to the hotel and I wasn't disappointed second time round. The staff gave a warm welcome at check in along with the standard doubletree cookie. My husband and I had a room overlooking the river and there were... More

Yes it is a great location for a restaurant, beside the river in Cambridge but the food is overpriced and of ordinary, mediocre quality. To pay 26 pounds for a an average tasting sirloin steak is ridiculous. Old style dessert, knickerbocker glory was too sweet and the chocolate brownie never had the specially requested cream instead of ice cream. There... More

What a great location the Twist Bar has to while away a late-Summer's evening. We enjoyed watching various river-users whilst taking a relaxing drink in the adjoining garden/terrace before settling back into a sumptuous lounge bar sofa to enjoy our 'snack'. Somewhat more than a snack, actually, as two towering, thick burgers (Lamb with Red Onion and Coriander and Venison... More

9 of us here for afternoon tea... Everything WAS going lovely. The scones weren't the best quality (working in the industry myself I understand that it's near enough impossible to make and cook FRESH scones without freezing them) but at least make sure they are good quality. Instead of being offered more tea, we had to ask for it! When... More

Perfect location to see Cambridge. Experienced noise in the first room we had due to the ventilation fans on roof. Just avoid being in the center section. Staff were great and would recommend this hotel. Only quibble was that no room in the room refrigerator to put cold water.

This was our second afternoon tea visit thus year. The food was good and value for money but,sadly, the service this time left a lot to be desired. We had four different waiting people and our son had to chase up missing items four times - missing cup, plates, etc. the first time we were offered additional sandwiches - thus... More
