3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We've stayed at a number of HDV's in recent years and the experience at Cambridge was not so good I'm afraid. The usual HDV rules apply here - an old and quirky building in the middle of town , with very difficult access and no car park. Helpfully, the hotel did offer valet parking (at a charge of course) but... More

Typical quirky Hotel du Vin. Les than 10 minutes walk from Kings and the Senate. Reception staff and porter were brilliant, nothing was a problem.Room a little small but nice. Great cocktails in the cellar bar, where the barman was very knowledgeable.Bistro and breakfast great

Dear rickyv007, It was a pleasure to host you on what is a very important occasion. It is true we are located very closely to senate house so there is not too far to travel in robes. Thank you for the generous feedback regarding our bar team. kind regards, Robert Dekkers General Manager More

Beautiful surroundings and the food was cooked to perfection. Even the request for a window table was fulfilled. Thank you to the staff for a lovely evening. Relaxed atmosphere which my cousin and I were looking for, as we don't get to catch up that often as we live on opposite sides of the world. Can't wait to visit again!

I've just brought a client up from London for meetings here and I believe they went well, and then asked about having a meal.

I was re-booked here by a competing chain when their reservations system messed up. This is obviously an up-market "boutique" hotel and the décor, the food in the bistro and the level of service all match the concept. Location is also good for the city centre and sightseeing However,... the service is rather over-bearing and a bit off-hand - precisely... More

We booked this hotel as we were looking for somewhere where we could spend a night away, have some good food and drinks without having to venture to far. Our room, named 'Bisol' was clean and lovely, staff were very friendly. We had dinner in the bistro which was of excellent quality with attentive waiting staff. More drinks flowed in... More

I spent two nights at this hotel as part of a business trip. On arrival I had to pay £500 in advance for two nights accommodation - I clearly wasn't trustworthy enough to pay on departure! There is no car parking so you have to pay at the meter outside (£1 for 12 minutes) and then the hotel will valet... More

I wasn't sure what to expect as it's not a cheap hotel. Pleasantly surprised, it exceeded my expectations. The staff are friendly and very keen to help with any and all requests (put to them by us). I was one of six (three couples) and everyone enjoyed their stay, each having their own highlights. The building is deceptively large and... More

I stayed at the Hotel du Vin in Cambridge for a business retreat in June 2015. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms extremely well equipped, and the breakfast was exceptionally good (apart from the time it took to come…). Sadly the service is unbelievably bad. Probably in the bottom 5% of all hotels I’ve stayed in, and I travel a... More

The Hotel du Vin is a lovely old building and we really enjoyed our stay there. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the bar down in the cellar was excellent. However, we did feel that our room looked a little bit run down. Having said that, we would definitely stay there again.
