A modest hotel, but clean and friendly! I stayed there the night of the 12th. May, with my friend and found it everything and better one could expect for the price we paid. We got there before lunch, so parking was no problem. It is on the direct bus route into the city centre but we walked. It took us... More

My partner and I stayed at the Helen Hotel for 1 night over the bank holiday weekend. The hotel is well situated with a bus stop across the road with a regular service into the centre of Cambridge. The bedroom was clean and well decorated. The bathroom, although very small, was clean and modern. Breakfast was served buffet style and... More

I stayed for one night at the weekend and was very pleased with my stay. It's in a good location as it's not far from the station (10-15 minute walk) which was ideal for me and there are a variety of supermarkets and restaurants within walking distance too. The staff were friendly and helpful. I opted for a single room... More

We were at a friends wedding around the corner to the Helen hotel, it's a great location for a nice walk to the town centre. The room and bathroom were lovely though the bar area was more like someone's house. Great all you can eat breakfast and friendly staff

Warm greeting by reception. Lovely clean and fresh room. First you play 'find the tea tray :) Having found it tucked under the bedside cabinet then you play 'hunt the power socket'. The only visible one is under the dressing table. So, drop the kettle power lead down the back, get on your hands and knees and contort yourself to... More

We needed an overnight stay in Cambridge for a wedding and the Helen Hotel was recommended to us. We found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating when booking and also when checking in - organizing a taxi for us to the wedding venue.We notified them that my wife needed to be gluten free and they made sure that...

I went to this hotel because it was closest to the convention where I needed to be. I checked reviews and didn't seem that bad... In retrospect I should have looked more closely at the bad ones. Indeed, they have the same issues that I had. Main one was that it was super noisy. The walls are paper thin and... More

This small hotel worked well for us. It was located in a convenient part of the city for what we were doing, and being on a main road was easy to find. There are 4 parking places in front of the hotel and somehow, we always managed to get the last one ! There is also a parking area behind... More

I stayed here for business in December 2014. The rate was very competitive, and I was surprised at the quality of the room. I booked a double room with ensuite, but there are also singles and rooms with shared bathrooms. My room was beautifully appointed and spacious. It was rather hot, but I could turn off all radiators and open... More
