I stayed here for 3 nights on business and it has torn me on how I feel about it. It is a lovely friendly hotel. The staff did try very hard to make my stay comfortable. It was easy to find and and a good car park at the rear. The hotel was clean and tidy and the food was... More

I found the Sorrento a family establishment and it really felt like home. I had a large clean room with a double bed, windows that opened and a small but complete ensuite. Breakfast was included in my arrangement - cereal, fruit, yoghurt and a cooked breakfast if wanted. I had dinner there a couple of nights and it was reasonably... More

The hotels facilities are adequate and pleasant enough. I found the staff to be friendly, happy to chat and very helpful (they organised a cab a couple of times). The cooked breakfast was spot on and an enjoyable experience in the hotels conservatory dining room. However, the room (a single) was too small and a little claustrophobic and it failed... More

Just stayed for two nights in this hotel, spotlessly clean and very friendly staff who are very helpful. Had breakfast both mornings, which was very good. Nice set up and run very well. Location is good, about a twenty minute walk into town. Cabs are not too expensive.

Quite simply this Hotel is awful for the ludicrous prices charged, the only saving grace being it was my company that funded it. I cannot think of a single positive; rooms are tired and dated, staff are either members of an "in your face" Italian family or look plain scared. Breakfast is measly and the whole atmosphere makes you feel... More

We recently stayed at this Hotel for two nights, hotel is clean, bed comfortable, good restaurant which was open on both nights we were there, and breakfast is well cooked and very adequate. Car parking at the rear of the Hotel. Buses run outside the Hotel very frequently. The Italian family who run this Hotel are very polite and friendly.

We stayed here as abase for wine tasting at Chilford hall as it wasnt too far away (10 mins) we were upgraded as it was quiet, which was lovely. the bed was very comfortable, the Spa bath was a nice treat and although the room was small it was all we needed for the one night.

For a 3 figure price tag for a room, I was sadly very disappointed. As others have noted, the hotel is clearly suffering badly from damp and you smell it as soon as you walk in. Our room had badly disguised mis-matched paint around the door attempting to cover up the stains that were leaching through. The bedroom door looked... More

Good value hotel but a bit dated. The food was nice and staff friendly. It feels a bit away from the station but, walkable provided your reasonably fit, if not, or have young children the taxi stance is right outside Cambridge Station and will cost between 4 and 6 pounds.
