The room was dirty - including a really nasty stain on the curtain and cobwebs everywhere. We had to remove a spider from the kettle.
The breakfast was inedible - except for the eggs, which the attentive waitress made sure were done exactly as we asked.
The staff (mostly Eastern European) were polite and helpful, but this didn't make up for the poor level of cleanlness.
The decor was stuck in a 1970s timewarp and the bathroom very small and dingy.
They only supplied towels for one person (there were 2 of us staying and paying).
Bed was clean and of adequate size. Headboard was loose, though.
Seems to be popular with parties of loud Northerners - and sales reps!
Is handy for the town centre and the bus to Cambridge. Though you could hear the traffic on the bypass despite the double glazing.
The old part of the building looks impressive from a distance. Not so sure about the extension, though.
