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

A very pleasant stay in this Cambridge hotel. A modest sized single en-suite room but perfectly adequate for my stay and very clean. Freshly prepared buffet including a "Full English" was excellent with each item tasty and perfectly cooked.Booking was easy to make and check in and out handled without fuss. If I'm back in Cambridge I shall book again,... More

I was initially concerned when I was booked in here on business - externally this place can only be described as drab. And that's a pity, because the staff are excellent and the breakfasts are superb. Internet access is blistering and free. Whilst dinner isn't available, that's not a problem given the selection of reasonable dinner opportunities within a 5... More

A very nice hotel. A cozy room with comfortable bed, a very good breakfast and a helpful staff.The only drawback was that the reception is not 24 hours open but closes after 11 pm.Also it is not near the city centre but this did not bother me.

A great value for money, the staff was really helpful and friendly. Breakfast had great variety and was overall impressive for that catergory. The room was very nice although a bit small. The only thing I could complain about is the noise but I wouldn't consider that a deal breaker.

Me and my husband stayed for one night while celebrating our Wedding Anniversary-! About a 20 minute pleasant walk to town and 5 minutes from a leisure complex with Cinema, bowling, places to eat and sainsburys! Friendly staff, clean rooms if compact but everything you need- tea & coffee, hair dryer TV etc! Very enjoyable breakfast- unlimited tea coffee juice... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night in September 2014, the staff were friendly and the room clean and had all the amenities you would expect, we didn't have the breakfast as neither my wife or I tend to eat in the morning, so I can't comment on it

Clean and tidy and well run guest house/hotel. Rooms are reasonable in size, nice and clean and have most things you might need. Breakfast was ok a but a bit little chef in style. Not in centre of town but not far from station. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Small hotel with friendly, helpful staff. Our room was a little tatty but clean. The waitresses kept visiting and revisiting our table each time one of us had finished with a bowl or plate in order to remove it. However, breakfast was excellent quality and plentiful. It is a good half hour walk from town but there is car parking... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and were very pleased with our choice of accommodation. On arrival the exterior of the property looked rather uninspiring with some cosmetic issues evident and the sight of two ? tumble-drier ducting tubes hanging out from the top-floor windows didn't improve our first impression! However, once inside it was a different... More
