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.

Group of us stayed mid week. Rooms are clean, tidy and bed linen good quality. However room was small, bathroom tiny and towels cheap. Cambridge is expensive but for the money and a bit of time you could do better but this place is perfectly acceptable. Breakfast was OK but asked for earl grey tea and they didn't have any,... More

We found the Sorrento by accident having to stay in Cambridge at very short notice. The hotel, run by a lovely Italian family, is friendly, very clean, and extremely well located for all amenities and Cambridge city centre. The friendly staff, without exception, could not do enough for us to make us feel welcome right throughout our three-week stay. The... More

Does the job. Expensive for what you get at £125 but breakfast was decent and the reception guy was helpful (if not proactive). I wasn't put off by some of the negative reviews on here. If you need somewhere to stay this will do fine. Cambridge is pricey! Restaurant only opens if it has prebookings so we took a chinese... More

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!!!
