This is the perfect spot for staying in Cambridge. It's right in the centre of town and on the river. Breakfast is served in the River Bar / Restaurant, and a table by the windows is a great place to sit and look out on the river and across to Magdalen College.
Rooms aren't huge but very nicely appointed and our room had a lovely view across the city. It is worth asking for a room on an upper floor.
Valet parking costs £19.50 and, as anyone who has been to Cambridge will know, parking can be a nightmare, so this is a sensible option as it can be even more costly to self-park.
The bedrooms have tea and coffee making facilities, including a cafetiere.
The roof terrace bar looks great with fantastic views over the city, but unfortunately wasn't open at the beginning of April. There is also a spa, which we only walked through to get to the river bar.
The hotel is quite expensive but is in the best location in town.
