Stayed here on business with a number of colleagues, so we probably didn't spend a huge amount of time at the hotel compared to those staying for leisure.
Our rooms were all river view, either with the larger balconies (for which you pay extra) or the smaller ones (but to be fair that's enough if you just want to step outside for some fresh air), clean, comfortable and well equipped.
The reception and bar staff were all friendly, although the obsession with making sure you get a warm cookie when you arrive is a little bizarre, if not surprisingly comforting.
Would have loved to have had the time to use the pool, gym, etc. but as it was, this hotel ticked the boxes for what we needed:
Comfortable, spacious room
Secure parking (albeit @ £18.50 for the pleasure)
Late opening bar
The last point is probably this hotel's biggest asset. It's a very short stroll to the city centre and night life.
*** TOP TIP ***
Chances are, if you come down Trumpington Street, your SatNav will try to take you left, just past Little St. Mary's Church, into Little Saint Mary's Lane. DON'T GO DOWN HERE!!! You can see the hotel, but it's a dead end for vehicles, from which you will have to do a 158 point turn to get back out (240 point if you have a Volvo estate). Instead, take the next left into Mill Lane, then hang a left once you reach the river - the hotel will be straight ahead on Granta Place.
