5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I found this place by accident. It is owned by Cambridge University Institute of Continuing Education, and is about 4-5 miles from the center of Cambridge, very close to the American Cemetary. Residential courses are offered here year round, and the University offer bed and breakfast accommodation for the public to fill up the rooms. They have about 60 rooms,... More

Spent two nights here, lovely old place with beautiful grounds, clean bedrooms and communal areas. Wouldn't be something I would choose for a hotel stay but that's purely down to personal taste. Good food and helpful staff, check out could be a bit later 9am is a little early hence the 4 star rather than 5.

Madingley Hall is a beautiful historic house set in elegant landscaped grounds and is very convenient for using the Park & Ride to get in and out of Cambridge town centre. Our room was immaculate, bed comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was as expected at a good hotel. I agree with other reviewers that you would... More

We can to Madingley Hall for a friends wedding reception and were all very impressed! First of all the staff were helpful, diligent and did everything they could to make our day the best it could be. Secondly, the location is beautiful and the hotel / house / grounds are kept to perfection. This is a perfect location for parties... More

Visited Madingley Hall open gardens to see the main formal gardens which lay east of the Hall as you approach it. Wonderful gardens to walk around and the building is steeped in history from Edward 7th attendance. Worth a visit any time of year.

Great 2 night stay. Please note this is a 5* B&B not a 5* hotel; some other reviews seem to neglect this fact! Room was very clean with food facilities, including tea and coffee facilities in room. Tea and coffee is also free in the bar area. Breakfast offered an extensive range and the hot food was actually hot, so... More

Beautiful, historic building set in gorgeous grounds. Staff were very friendly & helpful - useful tip about getting the park and ride into Cambridge saved us a fortune in car parking fees. Good buffet breakfast at shared tables. Bar meals were basic to say the least, the sandwiches were the best buy. Rooms were comfortable, all you need for a... More

I would say that everything about Madingley Hall is good. This is the perfect retreat for couple nights 'away from it all', as the historic hall is set in beautiful gardens, which visitors can explore. The rooms are comfortable and the food of a high standard: the self-service breakfast is excellent. I must also applaud the friendliness and helpfulness of... More

Crisp, clean, cost-effective student-style accommodation in the beautiful old hall just outside the village of Madingly. Cycle-friendly so you can keep your bike in your room if need be. The bar food is really terrible - microwave nonsense - but the cooked breakfast makes up for it. Worth a visit for a business trip, or, as we were, passing through... More

I only stayed for the one night. Staff very helpful, breakfast very good, room small but very clean and comfortable. The only non positive was the bar meals finished at 8.30 and when I got there at 8.00 2 of the 5 dishes on the menu had sold out. Beautiful building and gardens, I will use again.
