Hotel du Vin Cambridge
Ranked #14 of 36 Hotels in Cambridge
Reviewed April 28, 2013

The room was really really nice. I had a superior room for 2 nights. It was a large room with a bath and walk-in shower. The sleep quality was good, I have no complaints about the room. The staff was very friendly. The location of the hotel is also nice, quite close to the center.

I was not impressed with the breakfast. It is expensive if not already included with the room and you basically get the same cooked English breakfast that you would get in a local B&B. Seeing that the second day I got some eggs with salmon which at least was a more special breakfast even tough not a very large one.

We were attending a dinner and needed a central location which offered a car-parking service. We decided to get a cab in the evening as the weather was poor. The hotel needed a reminder to order the cab which nearly made us late. However, otherwise the hotel was satisfactory, with a comfortable (huge) bed and a room with all facilities including a safe. We chose to get breakfast in the city centre as it was just a short walk and much cheaper! we would happily stay at the hotel again.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the road

Having returned from a two night stay at the Hotel du Vin Cambridge I have to say how delighted we were with the hotel.
The room was fantastic, feature 'bath in room' so you can relax and watch TV with a glass of chardonnay and the full on drench shower was great!
The Nespresso machine was a nice touch along with the well stocked mini bar, air conditioning, robes, slippers and great toiletries.
Compliments to the housekeeping for a spotlessly clean room and to Linzi for showing us to our room and pointing out all the features, thank you!
We didn't eat in the restaurant as we wanted to experience our nights' out in Cambridge, however the bar was fantastic, very quirky but well designed, intimate with an great atmosphere with reasonably priced drinks, well done!
We will definitely be using a hotel du vin again..!

Thank you all for a superb stay

We stayed at this charming Hotel for our wedding Anniversary weekend. We had a suite in one of the oldest parts of the building. The bathroom was astonishing and really very well appointed. The bed was huge and oh so comfortable. We dined in the restaurant both evenings as the food was so good, and the service was friendly and good. The bar was a delight one of the best stocked that I have seen. It is not a cheap venue, but for a special occasion well worth the extra pennies.

Room Tip: Make sure you book a table for the Restaurant as it gets very busy.

A LOVELY hotel in a superb location in Cambridge, this Hotel du Vin has great charm, supreme comfort and some really luxurious details. Sleep quality was superb, food great for both breakfast and dinner and service out of this world. For best value go for the bed, breakfast and dinner package. Not cheap but well worth it.

We had a really great stay here.

Service was friendly and efficient.

Breakfast and dinner in the bistro were spot on. Really lovely bistro food with very frienfly staff and a very helpful Spanish lady sommelier. As we had booked bed, breakfast and dinner it also worked out very good value. Chicken liver parfait with a glass of Felton road Riesling was superb!

The bar is very atmospheric and cosy with lovely little nooks, perfect for a cold evening before dinner.

We booked a superior room but were happy to find we were upgraded to the cinema suite. As it was a free upgrade we loved it but calling it either a cinema or a suite was a little generous. The cinema is actually a funny little cellar room adjoining the main room with a big telly, speakers and 2 arm chairs crammed in. If I'd paid for this I would have been disappointed. Similarly the lovely roll top bath was oddly placed by the bedroom door. I think they have basically tried too hard to make something from a slightly awkward basement space.

Location is perfect. Just along from the Fitzwilliam museum and then a short trot to the rest of picturesque Cambridge.

Overall would happily recommend.

We stayed for two nights at the end of March on a B&B basis. The location of the hotel is good enough that we didn't need to use the car the entire weekend (but had to pay £18 a night to park which we didn't realise until we arrived). The room was very nice, a big room with a big comfy bed, a lovely bathroom with under floor heating and big fluffy towels and robes. The room was fairly cold despite us having the heating as high as it would go. We were also in a room that was on the road and on the Friday night we were disturbed by people inside and outside the hotel. But overall, we were very pleased with the hotel. The breakfast was lovely and we had room service and the food was very nice. We would recommend the hotel.
