Spent a night here in December. Pleasant room, not overheated, and an excellent meal in the restaurant. Staff were very helpful and courteous. A few minutes walk into the city centre and we were able to leave our car at the hotel for most of the day. which was an enormous help. The only drawback was the cost - over... More

my husband and I stayed 2 nights in a very comfortable and spacious room at the rear of the hotel. We were worried as it was Christmas party season that the hotel would be noisy. Happily our stay was very peaceful, we weren't bothered by any noise at all, not even road noise. The staff we encountered were very friendly,... More

A large albeit quite soulless room with a nice bathroom. On the edge of the historic old town the location is ok but it could be clearer as to what is included in the price as the hotel charged 30 pounds which I thought was included when booking but with no confirmation on the bpoking form I could not challenge.

A clean well run hotel in Superb location in the city.The on site car park was a blessing as we were able to visit all the sights on foot,without moving the car. The rooms are spacious with large bathrooms and good showers.Breakfast was excellent and the hot food served at the table.

As a "mature" couple this was an ideal hotel for our weekend in Cambridge. Clean, spacious room, good food in the dining room and a pleasant bar. The staff were all helpful and very friendly, especially on arrival. Cost is good value for Cambridge. The location is ideal, a pleasant stroll to the city centre, either along the roads or... More

Booked in here as it was over £100 cheaper than our usual weekend away hotel. As a couple of just turned 40's and no kids for the weekend, this hotel ticked everything. More than adequate room, no view but then I wasn't exactly expecting to see herds of migrating buffalo out of my window or the Eiffel Tower. The hotel... More

Stayed earlier in the year on the recommendation of friends and loved it. There was building work going on in the dining room but wasn't intrusive in the slightest. Our room was directly above the renovation work and we hardly noticed it. The location is a major advantage and is less than a 10 minute stroll into the city centre... More

We spent two nights here - a Sunday night and a Monday night. Hotel seemed fairly quiet. Room was clean and tidy. Room was quiet as it wasn't at the front of the hotel. Breakfast was good with the Full English cooked to order. Restaurant menu wasn't very tempting. There was a better selection available in the bar - but... More

Dear Robin A Thank you for your review, we are pleased that you had a pleasant stay with us and that you found the hotel to be quiet clean and tidy. Surprisingly our rooms at the front of the hotel are quieter than you think, perhaps next time you visit we can show you? I’m sorry that you didn’t find... More
