Stayed at this hotel last Saturday evening in a twin room with my son.
Paid £75 for the night B&B quoting “teletext” when booking, so not a bad price compared to rack rate.
Hotel location is fairly central on outskirts of Cambridge, close to main roads and 10mins away from Cambridge “Park&Ride” which I recommend (£2.40 per person return for bus & free parking). Hotel has plenty of onsite parking, and easy enough to find – pubs and restaurants within 10-15mins walk.
Public areas of hotel like entrance, reception, bars and restaurant are fine.
Bedroom was a reasonable size with two comfortable large single beds. Normal furniture which was a bit dated though I believe will be more modern in one of the hotels superior rooms – more expensive. Bathroom let the room down as it had dirty & mildew areas around the bath and shower fittings – see pictures.
Breakfast was good – nice selection of both hot and cold items, served by friendly staff although they were very slow to clear tables. We ate ~ 10:00am and some of the hot food by this time could have been hotter, even though service was until 11am.
Did not get a chance to use the leisure facilities but they looked ok.
All in all I would recommend this hotel if you want to stay in the Cambridge area, as it was generally clean and friendly, with a nice breakfast thrown in.
