Very good new conference type hotel based 15 mins from Cambridge. Not in Cambridge so confusing why called Cambridge Belfry. No sign on busy dual carriageway, but if you knew it was in Cambourne then that would help? Staff need training as was told breakfast finished at 11am only to find it closed at 10.30? Staff at restaurant did make us up some breakfast but I do love a buffet breakfast. They said others were told that too and were confused. Restaurant full the night before but served the same menu in the bar so were not full? We always come with the right attitude and were not disappointed, but some fussy travellers may be. Stated on leaving about the breakfast and the lady said that they were serving until 11am? However she did not understand that they didn't! Definitely need some staff training and obviously some communication problems on what time breakfast is served. However the food was excellent and we found a waiter called Constantine or Costa for short who waited on us like royalty. Rooms are very comfortable and seem to be sound proof. Would have been nice if we would have had a discount voucher or something off our next stay as we stayed in another Q hotel in Stratford upon Avon. Would recommend this hotel for a group if managed properly and reception and bar/restaurant staff sorted out there differences. If not ask for Costas!
The hotel is situated within a housing estate so location is only really good for a base to explore Cambridge and surrounding area. Hotels in Cambridge are more expensive and not much parking.
