It smells damp. Looks dated. The four poster bed is very loud when ever you move it it, felt like it was going to fall apart. The wine they served tasted off. The jacuzzi bath didn't work and the TV is really small. Apart from that the free parking is good and the distance to the bowling and cinema complex... More

My visit to Cambridge was for 1 night to compete the formalities of my son entry at Bell English School. The choice of the hotel was merely for its location to the school and the host family. Hotel is clean; room is 16 SQm so it’s pretty big. Over all the hotel is AVERAGE and affordable to stay for 1... More

The Sorrento maybe wasn't what I was expecting. I try and stay in non-chain hotels when possible, and this place feels more like a B&B than a hotel. My room was clean but small with a pretty small bed. The furniture was beautiful, but it felt like I was staying in a boarding house dorm room. The staff were polite,... More

Stayed with friends in this hotel last week, just for one night B&B basis. It is a family run property ( Italian) and everybody on staff were extremely friendly. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with good quality bathrooms. Breakfast was excellent, served to your table and the restaurant decor was fabulous. The number 3 bus stops right outside...

..I think they are embarrassed to do so. Especially at the price. Where shall I start? Well the first room had a broken light and radiator, and so they kindly moved me into the 'honeymoon suite' .... four poster, Jacuzzi, sauna ... but really only a 1970's bedroom 'done posh'. The telephone/alarm clock said it was 2005 (I re-set it... More

The reception staff were hospitable and friendly. I was reserved a double room downstairs with en suite. The room smelt strongly of mould and damp. After a few minutes I noticed a huge damp patch running up the corner of the room. I asked to be moved and I was without fuss or concern. I think my complaints has been... More

Stayed at the Sorrento Hotel for one night when attending an event at The Junction. Very convenient walking distance for this venue. The room was lovely - more like a proper bedroom than a hotel room, the place was clean and the breakfast was great. The staff were friendly and helpful and there's free parking behind the hotel. The hotel... More

We were booked into stay at the Sorrento.Upon arrival we noticed a bad smell when we entered.The place is very dated in most parts but to be fair the bathrooms looked quite modern. We were greeted by a friendly receptionist who asked us what time we would be eating as we were booked to have an evening meal. We both... More
