“Great value compared to other Cambridge hotels”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

I stay regularly in Cambridge and the last couple of times I have been unable to get into the Doubletree. This time I was fortunate and my stay made me realise what good value the Doubletree is compared to the other overpriced 'boutique' hotel I use. It has a car park (real bonus for Cambridge city centre), lovely environs (pretty garden, spacious reception, comfortable lounge, nice restaurant), extremely comfortable rooms, and most importantly, friendly, helpful staff. I initally booked on-line, but then realised from the the web site that there was a 'Fantastic Friday' deal which would include dinner and a bottle of wine for the same price. I was able to change easily by ringing up. Worth investigating the web site! The Doubletree will definitely be my first choice next time I'm in Cambridge.

Dear JECW_57, Thank you for your review, it is great to hear that you were able to stay with us again after some recent stays elsewhere. Our team will be pleased to hear that you found them friendly and helpful as they are always keen to delight our guests. Our Fantastic Friday package is very popular as it offers guests a three course meal from our a la carte menu in the Riverside Brasserie as well as a bottle of wine per couple. We are happy to be your first choice hotel and hope that you will be back to visit us soon. Kind Regards, Stacey White, Operations Manager, DoubleTree Cambridge

I visited Cambridge with my teenage son last week. We decided to pay a little bit more than we were originally going to (although not a great deal more), so that we could stay here, and we were very pleased with our decision. We were upgraded to a river-view room as a result of a slight booking mix-up. Everything was very clean and comfortable, the staff were very friendly, the breakfast first-rate, and the leisure club facilities of a good standard. The location is excellent, and it's very convenient that there is a car-park in the middle of this extremely busy city (although parking isn't cheap). We would definitely return.

This is the prefect location, near downtown but backing up on the Cam. It also had a very good restaurant and an excellent staff. You can walk to downtown easily.to top it all it does have a car park.

we went to this hotel as a treat with our 2 yr old son. We had a king bed and also the hotel put up a single bed in room which was very spacious.
Book in was easy and we were given warm cookies.
Room was gorgeous with lovely view of river.
bathroom very clean but small, definately not spacious as descibed. shower lovely though and towels big and fluffy. shampoo and conditioner and shower gel was also lovely.
We usd the pool which was lovely and warm and again the towels given were big and fluffy.
Breakfast was briliant, everything you could want from pancakes to fresh fruit to smoked salmon and scramble eggs and hot chocolate.
Nothing was too much trouble. At night i went to bar with sons bottle and it was promptly filled with milk for him at no charge and was not to much trouble. very helpful staff.
All in all a lovely hotel and very enjoyable stay. Could not fault anything apart from parking cost of £17.50 a day and charge for internet.

Room Tip: 712 is excellent river view with king bed. quiet room, no external noise at all

I had a great stay, as I always do. The location couldn't have been better. The staff were all very helpful, and veryvery helpful, in particular the two gentleman on the front desk over night, and the lounge team Rachel? during the day and Sean, the cocktail bartender in the evening. So thank you again to everyone who made my stay so special, I will see you again soon

We paid £200 per night for an 'executive room' which was noisy and rather small and most definately not worth the money. The hotel is in a lovely location close to centre of town but really needs to either lower the price or upgrade the rooms. Also the pool was full of children and very noisy and the steam room out of order- not a relaxing special treat weekend.

Room Tip: try another hotel

The lady at the desk asked if we was there for a special occasion and as it was my bday she game me a voucher for a free bottle of champagne at the bar what was worth £50, defo recommend to anyone looking for a good experience in cambridge! We went for dinner at Jamie's italian and was good for money and everything was so close to the hotel 5 mins walking distance! 10/10!
