First impression was not good as public areas were very tired and worn , however the room was very good. A large room at the back of the hotel and was very quiet. The room was clean and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities and toiletries in the bathroom. Free parking at the back of the hotel and just... More

Everything you could wish for in a hotel: large comfortable room with huge comfy bed; desk and armchairs; good shower with toiletries, shower cap and toiletries provided; wall-mounted TV; free fast wi-fi; and a delicious breakfast with properly made scrambled egg. All this plus plenty of parking and just a stroll to the centre of Cambridge. Brilliant.

Clean, helpful staff and good location. It's a nice walk along the river to the city centre and some decent pubs nearby. Decor is a bit dated as some other reviews have said but that wasn't an issue at all for me, other things more important. Good cooked breakfast as well.

We stayed here in May for 3 nights. The hotel is getting very tatty and needs a complete refurbishment. There is a notice saying that this is being done gradually, but there is no evidence at all of any work being carried out. (We are sure that when we stayed here 6 years ago, the same notice was on the... More

Arrived at 6pm, the reception was open and we were warmly greeted by the staff. The first impression was that the hotel needed refurbishing and we were given an electronic key that works the front door and your bedroom. Once we entered the room we were pleasantly surprised. It was good sized with a modern TV, free wifi, tea and... More

We arrived a bit early and found the hotel closed, so the voice at the intercom told us that we had to check-in at an other hotel 400 m down the street. After check-in we went back to the hotel and left our bags in the room. Nice, clean rooms but the bathroom was very tiny and with no hand... More

We spent a Saturday night at the Ashley Hotel. We had to book in via the Arundel Hotel just up the road as the Ashley does not have a reception area. We returned with our key, parked in the car park and entered through the back door. The public areas are a little tired and signs have been put apologising... More

Very tired hotel. Arrived to find hotel not open and had to ring intercom and wait for a receptionist to come from the sister hotel. Room was very small but clean. Breakfast was good but door to the kitchen was left open so we had to listen to the noise of the dishwasher every few minutes, the radio and general... More

This hotel is located in an older building just outside the very heart of Cambridge. A walk through the park to King's Parade however does not take more than 12 -15 minutes, so it is an excellent location for a visit to Cambridge, especially with the free car park provided. There is a supermarket opposite and there are a few... More

Stayed here as a family group in July 2015. We had 4 rooms between us and each was different in size and charcter despite paying the same for each. Its walking distance from the city and has parking which is always important in Cambridge. Breakfast was good & staff were friendly and helpful. The weather was very warm so the... More
