This establishment is well located - five minutes by bus to city centre from bus stop 20 yards from door; twenty minute walk along the river. Shops, including Co-Op nearby. Nice pub with food, Old Spring, next door. The place is due a refurb, which, according to notice, is imminent. Our basement room was spacious, including easy chairs and table.... More

We needed just one night on our way through England. As we arrived we were very courtiously greeted by the owner, in this case father and son. They made us feel welcome right away and our luggage (a lot) was carried to our room. As a non native English speaking it was a real joy to listen to the superb... More

As Aussie travellers, we chose The Ashley after having a really bad Airbnb experience in Cambridge. Lovely big room that would sleep 3 nicely. Very clean, although the only downfall was that there was no shower, only a bath (with no handheld shower head) A great bed and breakfast deal for 85 Pounds per night with on site parking which...

Stayed one night and had the quietest nights' sleep for ages. I agree that it is more of an annex to the main hotel but for ease of access to Cambridge centre and an excellent breakfast it was superb. The rooms could do with a full update but they are clean and when they do update the price will rise!... More

We have been visiting Cambridge several times a year for the last three years as our son has been at University. The Ashley has been a frequent stop over for us when picking him up and dropping off him off. Cambridge is an extremely expensive place to stay so value for money the Ashley ticks the box good breakfast ,free... More

To describe Ashley as a hotel is a misnomer. There are no staff on site until breakfast time and one has to book in at the Arundal Hotel prior to arrival at the Ashley.. The most bizarre aspect is that one cannnot access the room until 3pm; This arrangement is not customer friendly for those wishing to change or freshen... More

We stayed just one night as we had a posh meal booked round the corner. It's perfect if you 're eating at Midsummer House, just a 5 minute walk down a quiet road to the river. The rooms are clean and have everything you need. TV and free Wi-Fi provided. As others have noted, this little hotel is part of... More

We stayed here for a night when visiting Cambridge and were very pleased with the hotel. It is worth noting that check in is at the sister hotel which is a ten minute walk away but the hotel is clean and the rooms a good size with clean bathrooms and white towels. It is stated that the owners are endeavouring... More

We had 2 families of 4, and stayed in 3 triples for the weekend. It was a bit of a walk to downtown, but ok for our teens. Breakfast was good, rooms were spare but clean. Bonus was being close to the cheaper end of the punting rentals, and the public pool (cold!). Easy getting a cab to and from... More
