I stayed here for one night with family as a stopover for the "newmarket Nights". We couldn't get accomodation anywhere near the course and the Jockey Club runs a bus from the station and back. The place itself is at the top of the high street opposite Tesco with a narrow entrance off the main square car park and into... More

Stayed for one night in the 2 bedroom apartment located a couple of doors down from the hotel in Angel Pavement. Spacious rooms with one bathroom and an en-suite for the master bedroom. Good facilities and a very comfortable bed. Good experience.

Have stayed here 8 nights. The staff is wonderful, very helpful and friendly. Service is terrific. The building is loaded with history and architectural features. However, this is also a very popular gathering spot for the locals with most of the rooms upstairs overlooking a Pub patio. It can get very loud with guests and on the weekend, live music.... More

I stayed here for the convenient location near Duxford (Imperial War Museum, American Air Museum, Flying Legends Air Show). The single room was very basic but clean and adequate. Climate control was an open window and a small fan! The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was good and overall it was excellent value. I liked being able... More

Lovely weekend stay in one of their 2 bed apartments. clean, comfortable and literally seconds from the main Hotel. If I could just suggest a few ways to improve the apartment, to make it even more enjoyable: Put a toaster in the kitchen. The oven and hob don't work, there is only a microwave to cook with. If you wanted... More

We stayed in the hotel's apartment and loved it. We are a couple, plus one-year-old, and the very clean, comfortable and convenient environment was ideal for us. We enjoyed the flexibility that two bedrooms and bathrooms gave us and the kitchen/living area was very pleasant to spend the evening in. Modern fittings and quality furnishings. Comfortable bed. We had breakfast... More

My husband and I are from NYC and we stay at the Old Bull Inn at Christmas time every other year as his side of the family is English. Lovely rooms - very comfortable, nicely decorated, clean bathrooms, always warm and overlooking the beautiful town of Royston - which it is right in the middle of, on the high street.... More

We had lunch here. It is cozy and nice with a responsive staff. I learnt that this is an institution in the village and every family would have have touched it at some point in their lives. The menu takes the form of large black boards, which are brought to each table for the group to choose from.
