What a great hotel and location. We arrived on Boxing Day and the staff were all very helpful and pleasant and could not be more accommodating. We were upgraded to the penthouse suite which was a really nice touch and this set the scene for the rest of our honeymoon.
The penthouse is something else with use of an apple computer and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The balcony was very large and the views fabulous, with a table and chairs. The pictures on the website only capture some of the WOW factor of this room.
You have full use of the gym which has more than enough equipment to keep you entertained which is all the latest models of runner/rower etc. Breakfast was nice with great views but a cooked breakfast was extra money.
Be warned parking charges are extra and this I believe is normal in Cambridge, but the staff valet park your vehicle and this was seamless.
To sum up, the hotel is very modern with great service and an excellent location....wish I had tried harder at school and I could have lived in one of the fabulous colleges!
