Unfortunately we visited when the weather was unusually hot (34C, 93F), and there's no A/C or, in our room, any cross-ventilation, so we roasted. The staff were pleasant, the restaurant was good, breakfast was OK, but it's an old building, with many steps up and down, old fixtures, and generally crumbling around the edges. Nice convenient location and charming slice... More

Had one night in Cambridge and chose this property because of it's central location. I wasn't disappointed in that, but was surprised to learn it had no air conditioning in the midst of a heat wave. (This hotel is not alone in that - lots of UK hotels don't have AC because they don't need it much of the year,... More

Well located for the Colleges, town and Botanical Gardens. Good cooked breakfast. Very helpfully, the hotel allowed us to leave our car in its car park a bit beyond the standard check out time, giving us time for a quick punt on the cam along the Backs, before departing Cambridge.

Poor room tired and absolutely boiling all night, not even a bottle of water in the room, had to run the cold water tap for 5 min to get it cool. Windows open all night so no sleep, bar expensive but staff were very polite and helpful

An old fashioned English hotel with charming atmosphere and staff, located close to a lot of restaurants, shopping as well as park areas for recreation. A nice breakfast buffé is served (fee) as well as parking in the back yard (fee). Note that there is no AC available in the room.

The hotel is very well located, nesr of everything interesting in Cambridge! The breakfast was good. The service was excellent, people are very friendly and helpful. Thank you for everything! I only suggest to put some kind of brake in the single beds sonthey cant move when you sit on them. It can be harmful

Enjoyed our stay, really good location, and i'm only listing the below because i had trouble finding this info online; the facilities in the room were: tea & coffee making facilities, an iron and ironing board, a hair-drier, a fan, television, phone, free wifi in the hotel and it was a double room (comfy bed) ensuite with bath and shower.

I used to go to this hotel for work many years ago and it was OK then. This time we had a pre-paid good deal for 2 nights with one night dinner. Food OK, and breakfast good. Décor needs upgrading, and we could not move one of the bath taps in our room - they fixed it the next day.... More
