This hotel disappoints on several levels. Decor is very tired and badly in need of renovation and updating. The restaurant was closed on the two nights we were there, and as it is a hike into town that was very inconvenient. Fortunately the pub next door served good food. Our room on the ground floor was subject to noisy revellers... More

Having read the reviews for the hotel I was a little apprehensive however I need not have been. The hotel is situated on a main road but there is ample parking at the rear and in adjacent streets. The hotel appears to be comprised of three houses and as such the layout is cluttered although it has a reception area... More

This hotel is not especially cheap but is close to bus routes and is generally a relaxed location not too far from Camb. centre ...I found various fast food outlets and a good Irish club/ pub nearby . Also the English chef cooks good dishes and takes a personal interest in guests . I would stay here again . My... More

Nice hotel ran by lovely people. Location was a little further outside of the city than I thought but with a bus stop right outside this wasn't a problem. Clean room and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely food in the restaurant! Shops nearby and even a wine merchants across the road...great for gifts!!!

Bedroom is small Shower cubicle very small. Shower head holder could not be tighten on rod - kept sliding down. Nice hotel with somewhat fading out decor. Quiet location with pubs and various takeaway shops in the neighbourhood. Ventilation of room good. Bus Route No. 3 on street leads to city centre.

Booking this hotel for a visit to Cambridge as a birthday celebration was costly at £125 per night, breakfast was bland, staff disinterested, room functional but tired, too far to walk to the city centre (1 hour?) no hotel location map, Disappointed really

The beds are very comfortable, and the rooms are nicely furnished.You can adjust your radiator to your liking, depending on how hot or cold you want your room. They also provided me with an iron and ironing board to keep in my room throughout my stay. If you like Italian food then you DEFINITELY want to have dinner there! The... More

I stayed in on a leisure trip to see a friend in cambridge and only expected a basic hotel at 70 pounds B and B rate and was very surprised how clean and well run this delightful sort of 50s style hotel was. It is located just outside of the beautiful city . I had a warm welcome when I... More

The Hotel Sorrento is a 3 star hotel, and by and large it is. The room we had was supposed to be a two bedded room, but in fact us had a double and a single, which was OK for my wife and I. It was just about OK for overall size, although the bathroom was quite small and basic.... More
