This hotel is in a great location for walking round Cambridge and is very close to some excellent restaurants. Our room was very clean and recently refurbished. No complaints whatsoever. Would use it again and recommend to anyone.

Lovely hotel for Cambridge City Centre. Free parking too, which is a bonus in Cambridge. We selected this hotel as there was a Catholic Church very near by and we were attending services over the Easter period. The choice of hotel was brilliant for many reasons. Although we stayed in standard accommodation, it was superior to other hotel's superior rooms.... More

This is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in for a long time. Lovely welcome at reception, chocolates in the room with a welcome letter. The initial room we were allocated was a little dark so we asked if we could move to another room. Nothing was too much trouble and we were able to choose from a... More

Hotel is located beside Parker's Piece which is a lovely park, and within walking distance of town central. However if you're arriving by train, a short taxi ride here is better than bag-drag over cobblestone--we learned from experience. Front desk staff was helpful and friendly, and the room was large and clean. Did not eat in the restaurant because so... More

With a very friendly staff, particulary Veronica. We stayed with our dog, no complains about it. We had dinner that was very good. The hotel is perfectly near a park where you can walk the dog, and close enough to the city centre. So, for petlovers the hotel is perfect. Form the booking to the checkout all staff were very...

Very nice hotel, rooms are very clean, only thing is the walls are paper thin, can here everything, got woken up very early by the tv next door. The staff are friendly but just felt it was expensive for not just a great nights sleep.!

We stayed here for three nights in early April and found it an agreeable hotel, and quiet. My husband walks with a trolley, so the spacious disabled room, very close to the bar and restaurant, was ideal, though the view over the car park was less so. The bed was comfortable, and the staff very helpful. We appreciated the car... More

Clean, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. It's located in front of Parker's Piece, so it's just a 10' long walk to the city centre. It's not one of the cheapest options, but I was not disapointed. It has a wide offer for breakfast.
