I have just come back from 2 nights in this hotel ,and I can honestly say I can't fault it. The staff were so helpful and friendly, the rooms were spot on . Breakfast was a feast with everything you could want. The position of the hotel is perfect for walking everywhere.

The hotel feels upgraded, new and modern (it was previously Crowne Plaza). The best thing about this hotel is it's location. It is at the centre of Cambridge and all major attractions / restaurants are within walking distance. Amenities provided in room are very basic - they don't even provide slippers, cotton buds etc. But rooms are very clean. Towels...

This is a lovely hotel that's had a bucket load of money spent on it. It theirs no atmosphere. It's like sitting in an airport. Staff good, toilets dirty, drinks good, but expensive. Worth a quick drink or snack. But don't expect to stay.

Super convenient to a visit to Cambridge University. Had luggage, so it's a taxi ride from the train station. Able to walk to everything else once we were at the hotel. The hotel has a restaurant in it for breakfast. Everything else is accessible outside the hotel.

The location of the hotel could not be better, 5 minutes walk to centre of Cambridge, Kings college, shops etc. The staff were friendly and generally helpful. A good selection for the breakfast buffet, but they have a tendency to cook too much which means items sit on the buffet table for a long time and are not really hot....
