Arundel House Hotel
Ranked #25 of 36 Hotels in Cambridge
Reviewed November 17, 2013

By predictable every time, I mean that it is always ok but only that. The rooms on the front are ok but there is a huge range of bigger rooms (good) and one by the stairs which was definitely a me or my case job. The rooms in the wooden building to the back have pretty thin walls. The bar is welcoming and the breakfast is average only. Wifi is complicated and I think the hotel could well afford (given the prices charged) to install a better network.

Nice place to stay in Cambridge, worth the money. Good food, friendly young employees at the reception. My single room was small, but comfortable. But I was just under the roof, in a hot july, and with a small window to let the cool air in...

We were sceptical after reading the reviews but our stay was fine. Just one night in the coach house, pleasant enough. Staff friendly enough and very courteous. Breakfast was ok but limited selection. Double bed seemed small as many hotels now have kingsize plus beds. Overall, the hotel is fine. Many of the bad reviews are unjustified in our view.

This hotel is in a great location - right next to river and opposite very short walk into nicer parts of Cambridge (but, to be fair, all of Cambridge is pretty spectacular!)
Hotel has loads of car park spaces

Décor is a little 1970's and needs updating. The building looks like a number of houses connected together to make an hotel.

Beware of the temperature in hotel - room is boiling! had to sleep with window open all night

Breakfast was 'continental' - toasts and yoghurts etc - which I think is a bit mean.

I booked this hotel last minute as was visiting cambridge for some business and seemed handy for town centre, Looks a bit dull from outside, brown doors, but inside it was alright, check in was fine, my room was 200 just up the stairs from reception, quite small with shower only but very powerful with soft towels and clean. overlooked the back of the hotel, I ate in the consevatory food was fine, nice comfortable lounge next door with bar.The downside to the stay was where this room is situated which is nearest to the reception,so everyone going upstairs walks past your door and everyone checking in sounds like they are standing outside your door, this went on past midnight, with constant banging of doors, this is to do with the self closers and type of locking system they have ,I had the worst nights sleep in 2 years, I could also hear the kitchen extraction fan which was near my room, so did not open window, so was quite hot, I should have asked to be moved but was to tired to get out of bed at that time of night. the hotel and staff were nice and it is ideal for touring for its position, but I suggest management stay a night in this room to experience the noise which is not acceptable for £76 with continental breakfast. £7.95 for full english extra. The buffet was alright for breakfast, and you could have as much as you want. I was surprised by the negative comments on this site, apart from the sleepless night the hotel was very nice clean and tidy.

Very quickly booked the night before having stayed previously a few years ago. Our experience was very good. First of all we have to comment on the quality of the food in the restaurant as it is really tasty. We chose to eat off the set menu so was slightly expensive for our budget but we thoroughly enjoyed our choices, so much so we personally thanked the chef who then gave us a preview of the new menus he's recently produced, soon to be available. The staff in the entire hotel were really lovely and extremely friendly and helpful. They made the stay pleasant for us. It has to be said that the rooms are a little tired and we did hear quite a lot of noise from other rooms, water running, baths emptying, footsteps and others walking by passed our room. Pricing is on the expensive side and although we got the room at its lowest price, which was ok at short notice, was still a lot for us bearing in mind we also ate in the restaurant. Made it an expensive 1 night but on this occasion was definitely worth it. Will return when possible. Special thanks to Leine (Leanne) for a great friendly service.

Room Tip: Be aware there are lots of stairs if they are a problem to you

I stayed here for a week and it's just awful. The staff are hot and cold in basic manners. The food is below average. The rooms are very hot, no air conditioning. The rooms are small. Poorly furnished. Small bathroom. TV positioning is acute, thus hardto watch from bed. The whole place is just tired and is low quality. This places is a 2 star max and should be priced at £60 per night. Awful.
