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

Considering the price, this hotel serves well. No refrigerator in the room, comfortable beds. Breakfast was much better than expected. Reception was friendly and helpful. I think the only problem was sound isolation.

Great location just a short taxi ride to the centre to see the sights and bars and restaurants yet just far enough away to get a quiet nights sleep. Room was well furnished and very clean, bed was very comfortable. There were a few areas that could have done with a bit of attention if you looked closely but they... More

The hotel decor is outdated, which is to be expected after seeing the photos. Since I travel a lot for work, I do not believe that the hotel offers good value for money. POSITIVE: The staff are friendly, helpful and polite. The rooms and the hotel in general is very clean. Location is good - 20 min walk from the... More

I've been staying at the Sorrento for about a year now whilst working in Cambridge and I can't rate this hotel highly enough in all respects. A charming and independently family run hotel where everybody I've come into contact with has been polite, friendly and given me great service. The hotel is ideally located for the railway station and is... More
