“Basic but reasonable accommodation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2011

The 4 rooms offered by the Waterman are all newly decorated and provide reasonably good value so far as staying close to the centre of Cambridge is concerned. The rooms are above the pub, but this was not a problem during our stay. The walk into Cambridge from the waterman is a delightful 15 minute walk along the river.

The most annoying thing about the waterman, apart from the lack of parking, was the small frosted window in the room without any curtain, through which the sun brightly shone at shortly after 5am. However, overall a pleasing stay.
