This was a perfect hotel for being able to leave the car parked whilst we attended a wedding four days before Christmas, at one of the colleges, where parking was not possible. The efficient and friendly reception staff arranged a taxi, which ensured a smooth journey through the overcrowded streets. The room was quiet, spotlessly clean and on the ground floor which was very convenient for accessing the car, given the amount of luggage we had for the stay of two nights! The only down side was that the food ordered, on arrival at the table, did not always match the description on the menu, for example a fish pie without the advertised prawns and savoury cheese sandwiches (bar service) smothered in pickle and tuna in basic white bread (no choice offered). Whilst no explanation was offered for the pie, the cheese sandwiches were changed without any fuss. The breakfast provided plenty of choice but the scrambled eggs were somewhat unpalatable. The rack of lamb at dinner was, however, cooked to perfection for someone who enjoys it 'pink' -a treat my husband rarely experiences! We will certainly book this hotel again if we visit Cambridge.
