Hilton now allow you to choose your own room before you get there - similar system to airlines. I wanted a room facing the river rather than overlooking the car park and it was quite difficult to figure out. I called the hotel and they were really helpful. The room was nice and clean and I had tea on the... More

Lovely location by the river, relatively clean room. Has a small fitness centre and little swimming pool though it does not look like it is well maintained. The public areas and rooms + balconies look like they are in serious need of refurbishment, especially for a brand like DoubleTree by Hilton. Expensive wifi, but free parking. Most of the staff...

I spent few days at Doubletree in January 2015 , I could not choose the Hotel in Cambridge ( I was there for an interview and I brought with my family) but I read reviews before booking and, well, it did not get the best reviews in Cambridge. The Hotel is in a spectacular location in town, very close to... More

Although we have never slept here we do visit now and then when the weather is fine to have drinks and a snack meal by the River Cam and watch the punts glide by. A lovely garden to relax in and the basic pizza on the lunchtime menu is the best I have ever eaten anywhere in the world.

Dear earwigo321 Thank you for your review. We are delighted to read your high compliments about our Pizza and the overall atmosphere in the gardens for lunch. It is a superb place to sit down, eat & drink something on a fine day just watching the punts glide by. Let’s hope for more glorious weather like this! Kind regards, Aitziber... More

Came here several years ago and was disappointed with the service and the food. It's nice to know that possibly the management read and listen to the customer's reviews.

The location makes this a good venue to see the City centre and dine/relax by the river. A little dated in its decor it is clean and the rooms well provided for. Only free internet access in the lobby a bit of an issue, including logging on.
