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

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.

When making a reservation for our 5 rooms we enquired about a preparation area for our wedding cake as my sister was making our cake - to our surprise the manager offered us the... More

Jim and I would like to thank The Bull for the fantastic wedding reception they held for us. The Ballroom and Oak room looked great, the service was excellent, staff friendly and food first rate. It is clear the staff have pride in their work and are very personable. We have had a lot of positive feedback from guests.

Accidentally stumbled across this hidden jewel in Royston and can honestly say it offers the best food for miles around. All homemade and seasonal dishes with weekly changing specials. It is one of the more expensive local food places but the quality and portion size more than makes up for it. Even at breakfast the food is 5*. Staff are... More

We stayed here for one night following a family occasion. The staff were great throughout and we had a buffet in the restaurant which was very nice and well priced. The bar serves a good selection of drinks including two guest beers which is always a plus point. We stayed in room 3 which although not big was perfectly adequate... More

We arrived after a long day on the road. Finding the car park was a challenge but the experience overall made up for it. Warm welcome, helpful staff throughout, good beer and tasty meal from a good range of menu options. Room was clean, beds were comfortable and bathroom offered all we needed; shower was fantastic and offered enough power... More
