This hotel is in a good location and had everything we needed for our weekend in Cambridge. The bed was comfortable, the shower was good enough and the rooms were clean. Our room was quiet and the air conditioning and fan were more than adequate and it was a really hot weekend!. We were lucky to get a parking space... More

Just for info the hotel has just one accessible room for disabled with a wheel in wet room. It is on the ground floor. There is no lift for upper floors. It's hard enough work trying to find information about accessible rooms so I thought I would share this info to help others!

We stayed here on a Friday night as we were on a work function. We were lucky enough to manage to get a car park space at the front. We reserved two rooms and got one in the basement and one in the attic. Attic room was small with the shower designed for thin people. Basement room was again small... More

We spent three nights at the Lensfield hotel in an upgraded suite (Super Deluxe Double Bedroom) that included a kitchen and sitting area. There was even a washing machine in the room! Room 169 in Building 47 appeared to have just been refurbished and was very nice. It was on the lower level meaning below ground but there was a... More

We arrived at the hotel on the Tuesday afternoon. Being in a wheelchair we were a bit worried as there was steps on entry. However, my hubby spoke to the hotel manager and once settled in the room a member of staff came to take our breakfast order as they were bringing us breakfast in bed so I didn't need... More

Look elsewhere if you can. Most of the areas of the hotel are pretty old and run down. They made a really annoying mistake on providing me with the final bill and good luck getting that rectified. It wasn't cheap, either.

This is a good value, decent hotel with service-oriented staff, great cleanliness and a fabulous location with an easy walk to the centre of town. Being an old building though, it is pretty creaky when people walk in the room above and voices can be heard through the walls. Our room was quite a small double compared to some of... More

Stayed for 5 days in early June and this was an ideal hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Warm welcome for breakfast each morning and good selection. Location really good with centre 5 mins away in one direction and then 2 mins in the other direction you find local pubs (Punton and Alma) offering good value away from the tourist... More

Wanted somewhere for 2 nights in the centre when visiting friends. It was very good value and the location was perfect. The larger rooms looked to have been recently refurbished in a contemporary style but one of the smaller rooms was decorated in a fairly out dated way and as my trip was approaching I was beginning to think that...

We booked the Lensfield (Room 148) as a last minute long weekend more for the availability than the Hotel. Thankfully we were not disappointed and the hotel was a gem. Within easy walking distance of the Old Town, the staff were friendly, the hotel was clean and well appointed and our room large and spacious although externally there are only... More
