Lovely little hotel, easy walking distance for town and all local bars and restaurants. Big comfy beds in spacious rooms. Breakfast was fantastic, best hotel breakfast I've had. Only downside was the parking they advertise, they only have 4 spaces! Parking in nearby streets is £2 an 7 days a week. All in all, would recommend

Very spacious with its own kitchen and living room but not the hotel room we booked... In the morning we had to walk from the house to the... More

Disabled Lift a little unreliable, however friendly staff were always on hand to help. Breakfasts were good, and plenty to eat. Found staff to be very accommodating and friendly. Be... More

NO LIFT IN THIS HOTEL and it has steep winding stairs, not suitable at all anyone with even moderately heavy cases or health problems !! The reception staff were indifferent to the guests needs and the breakfast was merely average. Levels of cleanliness not great. The only good thing about this place was its closeness to the centre of town.... More

Spent two nights at this hotel. Had an altercation on arrival over Parking with the Manageress and a very rude arrogant girl member of hotel staff. There are 5 spaces in front of the hotel. As we reversed into an empty car park space the girl put a metal chair behind our car to halt us and shouted that she... More

I stayed for 2 nights. My room was spotless. I had lots of towels, toiletries, slippers, tea, coffee, biscuits etc. The spa was amazing. Natasha was very professional and I would highly recommend her. Theoni was also lovely. Sylvia and Fernando were super in helping me save a sentimental item and Soulla was very kind. Lovely staff who made me... More

I found the room very narrow as it was fully occupied by the 4 beds. Beds were not really goods and bathroom was not clean. Breakfast was average, nothing really amazing. 150GBP for this is expensive even for Cambridge. I will not recommend at all.

Very glad to leave after two nights - at £75 per night I feel robbed. I don't mind a small room that needs redecoration if its clean but..... Cobwebs from the ceiling? Its not even Halloween! Dirty marked doors and walls, off white tiny towels, a bent and dirty bathroom mirror and a toilet that needs a great deal of... More

I am a Cambridge local and visited the Spa with my friend. From the moment we arrived we were pampered non-stop! After our refreshing welcome drink, the spa manager, Theoni, showed us to the changing room and explained that we had slippers, robes and even a pouch to put our jewellery in and a locker to keep everything safe. We... More
