We went to the Waterman with a friend, for 2 nights in a Double room. The room was really nice, large and with a lot of facilities. The staff was helpful and warm. We also loved the breakfast, which offers a large choice and good products. This B&B is at 10 mn of walk from the city center. Thank you... More

I stayed here with a friend for just one night during the summer. The hotel staff were very helpful - directing us to a suitable parking spot for the duration of stay. The room itself was very pleasant and clean. The shared bathroom was also maintained very well and kept spotless. Breakfast was simple but very enjoyable. Even when going... More

I'm just back from a two night stay at The Waterman, a small pub located on the banks of the River Cam and just a 10 minute walk from the centre of the city and all its amazing university buildings and shops. The pub itself was very clean and the super friendly stuff couldn't do more to help, particularly in... More

A great birthday weekend in Cambridge based at the Waterman. Ordinary exterior hides Good food, excellent real ale and a clean room with a helpful, friendly staff. Lovely twenty minute walk to the Market Place across Jesus Green. Parking never good in Cambridge- try Craggles at ParkatmyHouse. If you have never been to Cambridge before- watch that bike!

We made a last minute decision to try having a meal here last night. We had previously walked past it many times over the years and thought it was just an ordinary pub. We were pleasantly surprised. The food and drink were excellent, much better than the average pub meal and very reasonably priced. We had waitress service and the... More

I had made 2 reservations at this hotel for colleagues on different dates however after the first person had stayed I had to cancel the second as it was so terrible. The noise from the pub can be heard from the bedrooms until after 11pm so not advised if you are looking for a good night's sleep. In addition the... More

The pub was only a short walk to the town mostly by the river. The room was quite small but ok for a short stay and was clean. The breakfast was not cooked but we were offered extra toast and tea if we wanted it.

Nice to see a place that looks after their beer and the food is fresh and great for the price . Lovely staff too would definitely recommend to anyone local or just visiting the area, parking is tricky but the staff help with that

The staff at the waterman were all very pleasant and welcoming and although they messed up our room slightly by not providing us with a family room they was quick to rectify the problem. The room was very pleasant and clean, perfect for a night or too away and with in easy walking distance along the river to the city... More

Our last night of our trip we spent almost without sleep in this b&b. The bed isn't of great quality and with a bad back i slept better on the ground. The room is not that big and the bathroom wasn't that clean. There were only light curtains so we were up at about 5am because of the sunshine. The... More
