We stayed there for two nights for my son's graduation at Cambridge University. There was a mixup with our room (as we required wheelchair access), which the staff did their best to rectify. The staff and management are friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are lovely with a wide choice. The rooms are clean with an ensuite. I would stay there... More

One night stay at this hotel. I arrived in the early hours and was greeted by a very polite bloke who was very helpful, didn't catch his name. The room was clean and tidy although on the small side. The place was like a furnace, although the extremely hot weather didn't help a bit so cracked open a window, although... More

Family run hotel, with good service, but decor old fashioned and run down, and disappointing food for an Italian place. The bacon and egg at breakfast was the highlight. The hard chicken (was it chicken?) and soft veg with margarine flavoured mash the lowlight.

Very nice full English in the morning to start the day off right. Wifi a little temperamental. Staff excellent and very good at assistance where required - well done staff. If on... More

I went to Cambridge for a meeting at the university. My wife, a software engineer, came with me planning to work remotely. First problem: I reserved a room with a queen bed thru Concur (a popular corporate travel reservation system.) Upon arrival, I learned that I had reserved a very large bed for one person. Hmm. The price jumped 33%.... More

4 of us stayed here for two nights as it was the only hotel we could find in the area owing to it being a graduation weekend and everything else seemed booked. This is probably one of the worst hotels we have ever stayed in. The place smelt of damp, the decor very dated, the bedroom small, bathroom tiny, hot... More

I had not intended to spend the night in Cambridge but the A 14 was blocked and after two hours in a queue I gave up trying to reach Peterborough and rang up the Sorrento mid evening which although almost full were welcoming . My double room was very comfortable although the shower room was small. But the hotel is... More

If your looking for great hospitality, great food and service, clean and secure rooms, all in a lovely central hotel, then look no further. Christmas dinner is a real treat, if your looking to stay in December. You will not be disappointed by your travels here. 50th wedding anniversary parties are good too............

I stayed here for 3 nights on business and it has torn me on how I feel about it. It is a lovely friendly hotel. The staff did try very hard to make my stay comfortable. It was easy to find and and a good car park at the rear. The hotel was clean and tidy and the food was... More

I found the Sorrento a family establishment and it really felt like home. I had a large clean room with a double bed, windows that opened and a small but complete ensuite. Breakfast was included in my arrangement - cereal, fruit, yoghurt and a cooked breakfast if wanted. I had dinner there a couple of nights and it was reasonably... More
