Surely not the biggest rooms of hotels history , but really a nice place to stay for a few days. Everything you might need is here , and the staff is helpful and kind. The forniture is quite old , but beautiful : if you prefer "modern" forniture then you should look somewhere else.

We stayed at The Lensfield for only 1 night. It was in a good location, staff were friendly. We booked a double and the room, including the bathroom, was quite spacious. Decor is a little outdated, but the room was clean and laid out with slippers, chocolates and tea, coffee and biscuits. There was also free wifi in the room.... More

The Lensfield is OK but not much more than a glorified B&B. They have tried to cheer the rooms up a bit with nice bedding but the original furniture is very dated and the rooms are small and ours was very, very cold with a heater we had to switch on ourselves and no working heating in the bathroom. They... More

My stay was really REALLY bad... - I heard people talking/coughing through the walls all the time all evening and late into the night - There was CONSTANT very loud noises/thumps all through the night, of people moving around/walking up and down the halls/walking around their rooms. Every part of this hotel has squeaky floorboards, I didn't get a wink... More

When it comes to Cambridge, hotels are either out of the city but reasonably priced or centrally located but terribly expensive. This holds an excellent location for a good price. located halfway between the train station and the city centre itself. It is a boutique style hotel, very clean with lovely bedrooms and bathroom and fantastic shower!! Staff were very... More

The lensfield was a real find, just a couple of minutes from the fitzwilliam museum and easy walk from train station. It's a Georgian style building with charming rooms with character, and far cheaper than the other central hotels I looked at. I hoped to be able to park there but there are only two spaces so you can't rely... More

The room is a typical European size with an attached bathroom. It is located in between the train station and the center of town. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is great. Something for everyone with to-order eggs and French-press coffee. Best breakfast I have had in the UK.

Small friendly hotel about one kilometer from Kings college / city centre area. Spa newly built with attentive staff and exotic treatments. Only 5 parking spaces on a first come basis. Have plenty of change if you have to use the nearest paid parking - 50p for 10mins! The Twin Room up in the attic was quiet and had all... More
