Nice small hotel on main road into Cambridge. I have stayed here twice and had rooms at the back of the building on both occasions, very quiet and cosy rooms. The decoration is quite old fashioned but rooms are spotless. The room I had on the top floor was quite warm in the summer but a desk fan was provided... More

This is a small quiet hotel on the main road into Cambridge. I had a spacious double room on suite, even though booked single. Well appointed, clean and a very comfortable bed. Parking, which they allowed before our check in. We caught a bus from across the road to go into Cambridge, which took about about 20 mins, but cost... More

Room looked exactly like the tripadvisor photos - so no surprises there. Staff was friendly and forthcoming. Breakfast is abundant as one expects in Britain. WiFi worked perfectly, once you are registered with the cloud. Hotel is located close to the station on one of the main streets. My room was to the backyard, which might be advisable. Restaurants as... More

A small friendly hotel. The hotel had been booked for me and I am delighted with my stay there. I had a single room, not large but had all I needed, very clean. Good breakfast and friendly staff. Very easy access to the centre of the town, close to the botanical garden. Close to the railway station.

Spent 1 night here on Wednesday 3/6 as I was in Cambridge for business Plenty of parking at front (and back of Hotel) and well situated for Cambridge town centre which is only minutes away. The Hotel does not do any food which was a little disappointing after a 4 hour drive to get there but there is plenty of... More

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
