I wanted change from predictability of hotel chains and certainly got a surprise when I booked Lensfield at last minute. My room had everything you would expect but it was dated and quirky. Nowadays a single room usually comes as a twin or double bedroom however, my room at Lensfled was a true single. So small you could not swing... More

This hotel was delightful. The room I stayed in was just perfect for my needs as a solo traveler. Clean, elegant, classy! And, the breakfast was astounding. I was overwhelmed with the choices and the supurb quality. I've never had cake for breakfast after the eggs, toast, cereal, sausages, fruits, yogurt, and more and more! The day I checked in... More

We got married on Saturday and had no set plans of our honeymoon, we decided on Cambridge on Sunday and booked the Lensfield Monday morning and arrived in the afternoon. We chose the hotel as it was described as a 'boutique spa hotel.' We arrived a free parking was great. Check in was a surreal experience to say the least.... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for two nights while exploring Cambridge. The room we were given was very nicely decorated, a bit twee but in a nice way. There was everything we wanted in the room, plenty of space to hang clothes, tea making facilities, a nice bathroom. The hotel only served breakfasts so we had to... More

Just returned back from Cambridge. Stayed in the Lensfield Hotel. Excellent service. Rooms updated. Breakfast everything you need and very good service. Excellent location for walking to River and colleges. The Spa is a must to visit. I had one of the best 'Scrubs' ever with all the little things added. If the car park full, they offer you parking...

The hotel room is comfortable and I loved its decoration. The hotel location could not be more perfect: it's close to almost famous attractions in Cambridge. I did not spend a pence with transportations. There are restaurants and pubs nearby as well. The breakfast is perfect! You will, definitely, enjoy your stay there.

Having stayed in several hotels and one very poor B&B in Cambridge, we stayed in the Lensfield for our son's graduation. We were met by a very friendly receptionist who smiled every time we entered or left the hotel. The beds were comfy and more importantly we had a room at the back (no view) but it was lovely and...

Becoming regular visitors to this hotel which we now know counts for nothing. A mix up with rooms with no one accepting whose fault it was resulted in us been offered an upgrade for an additional £50 which then increased by another £20 whilst we were deciding!! Inflation! We did not get the best room in the hotel with walls... More
