The hotel is very conveniently located if you're visiting many of the Colleges of Cambridge University, attending their events or visiting as a tourist. The only other options nearby are Hotel du Vin and Cambridge City Hotel. The good points of the hotel were: service was excellent with staff being professional and cheerful, there was air-conditioning for the summer, the rooms seemed recently renovated with new bathrooms and soft furnishings, car parking is around 18 Pounds per day for hotel guests which is a relief as city centre parking in Cambridge is such a challenge, the breakfast is hearty with lots of choice and plastic cups for you to take away coffee or orange juice, the hotel gardens are lovely and the restaurant and bar both have fantastic views and open onto the garden.
Negative points are: squeeky hotel room doors which don't close properly, bathrooms are a bit small, not enough closet or wardrobe space, and the price which is high for the size of room and grade of hotel.
A nice touch was the warm cookies given by reception on arrival together with some bottled water.
Rooms facing the river have a wonderful view and were not too noisy fortunately.
Generally a pleasant stay and experience and I wouldn't mind returning.
