Dinner was disappointing but the breakfast was fresh... More

We had a lovely wedding thanks to very professional, helpful and kind wedding planner CHRISTY. The day was unforgettable. We stayed at the hotel with our friends, and get a very beautiful room for newlyweds. The breakfast was excellent - huge choice and everything well cooked. The hotel has a central position in Cambridge so it is perfect for tourists... More

It is a shame that these things do not appear to be corrected as it would drastically improve the... More

Only stayed for two nights but they were good. The beds were very comfy, the breakfast was good, the evening meal was good (could up-date the menu a bit to include a more 'chic' menu. The staff were very good. The rooms themselves do need a bit of up-dating but only in places. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom... More

This is a very old building but well maintained, we had a huge room with high ceilings and large windows looking over Main Street. Good location for visiting centre of city and all attractions / shopping etc. Hotel food pretty good ate dinner one night which was good quality plain old fashioned food about £20 a head for 2 courses....
