The hotel are undergoing a refit and what they are creating is excellent. We booked two rooms - 1 was a newly refurbished suite in the annexe section of the hotel which was outstanding - 5/5 any day. A proper self-contained apartment with a kitchen, dining table, lounge and ensuite. The second room was a twin on the lower ground... More

I stayed in the hotel during an overnight business trip. Having read other reviews maybe I just got unlucky with my room. Firstly parking is very limited. Only around four spaces. Friendly staff at check in. There was some renovation going on as some walls were just plaster. I had room 133. Very small. Single bed. The room was also... More

As we booked late we were given a downstairs twin room which was very comfy. Slight problem with the shower, it said make sure the screen is shut and I thought I had but still managed to create a small flood! Easily cleaned up with bath mat and as there is a heatwave the rest dried quickly. Staff very friendly... More

I stayed one night at the Lensfield in a cosy, immaculately clean single room on the 1st floor. The staff were welcoming and efficient, and the hotel is extremely convenient for all the colleges, museums and sights of the city. I was even lucky enough to to arrive in time to have one of the 5 parking spaces outside! When... More

Been meaning to write this for ages - this was our first visit to the Lensfield. It was Valentines Saturday and we had a fantastic time. This has charm that you do not get at a big chain hotel. It is small, chinzy in a adorable Cambridge way (and i live here in Cambridge!), location is superb. You are showed... More

The room was very comfortable and spacious and the free wi-fi was very good. There was a very good choice of food for breakfast and... More

We stayed for one night 30th may , pleasantly surprised to be able to book in early and to get a car park space, the lady on reception was helpful and welcoming. The room on the ground floor was large and had character, the bathroom although small and in need of a bit of TLC was functional and plenty of... More
