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The hotel decor is outdated, which is to be expected after seeing the photos.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

This was my 5th stay here for 4-5 days at this time of the year in the past couple of years. The service was great and the room was clean. I can see that they've been making improvements to the room over the years. The breakfast was good, cooked-to-order full-English plus real continental. The staff really tried to accommodate my...

The front desk people at the Sorrento were all very helpful, and my room was nice and clean, with thoughtful touches like a retractable laundry line over the tub and an electric kettle with coffee and teas. The location was very handy from the train station. You could easily take the Cherry Hinton St. bus that stops right by the... More

There were stains on the walls, bed smelled of tobacco smoke. I paid for dinner bed and breakfast but the hotels restaurant was so smelly and dirty... More

This Hotel was a late booking last week for a theatre trip to Cambridge. The location was excellent - no question about it - a couple of miles into King Street, great off street private parking and no fighting for space. The chap behind reception was friendly, very helpful and a good ambassador for the hotel. The bar area looked... More

Stayed for 3 nights and would stay again. Close to the city, with in walking distance to the station. The room was clean and comfortable with a large bathroom. Breakfast was excellent, with a great choice continental and full English with fresh fruit. Bar prices were good as well. Staff were very helpful. All in all had a good time

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
