        • Older travelers

          We had asked for a quiet room and the one we were allocated met the bill. Our room was right at the top of the hotel set under the eaves and was delightful and spacious -the only issue,may be becasue we were at the top was a lack of hot water

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Very good hotel - friendly and the breakfast was good - Perfect location. Would go again. Car park bonus at £5.

        • Family with children
          9.2

          The staff was very helpful. The room was nicely appointed and had plenty of space.

          We were on the top floor, and our room was a little hot and the shower pressure was bad. We had a family of 4 and a party of two, but were unable to have have more than 3 in a room which was a little inconvenient.

        • Older travelers
          4.2

          nothing except that it had a car park,

          rooms were cramped, only marginally bigger than the beds. there was unpleasant and loud noise from the function room in the basement. the dinner in the restaurant was awful. eventually we were moved to another hotel

        • Older travelers

          Very nice rooms; average breakfast and service

        • Single
          8.2

          Warm welcome - I was told that someone had asked if I had arrived

        • Older travelers
          4.2

          Girls at the reception (all of them Hungarians) had been helpful and friendly. Good location, most of the colleges had been nearby.

          The hotel is noisy (no sound protection). I had to repair the toilette twice by myself..Furniture is quite old fashioned and not functional. Room was super tiny. Large white paint stripes on the coloured curtains, left from the last refurbishment of the room. The hotel management obviously is not investing any money to improve the quality of that old hotel. A fee of 6 Pounds per hour for WiFi is day-light-rubbery, I refused to use it therefore.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Ensuite was nice

          No ramp up to hotel-difficulty with heavy bag.

          Receptionist's poor grasp of the English language

          An ok hotel but expensive. Good location with own car park.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Very convenient for visiting Cambridge and it was good to be able to leave the car in the carpark. Comfortable room with character. Staff were very helpful.

          I thought it was overpriced. The room was on a main road so a bit noisy.We booked a twin room but when we arrived it was a double room but they quickly changed the beds when we asked.

        • Single
          6.6

          Central - 10mins takes you anywhere in Cambridge centre.

          Bar staff had a tendancy to disappear for a while - it took 20mins to get a drink at the bar on one occasion. They were however quite friendly and helpful when they did appear. There was no air conditioning in the bedrooms.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          An excellent location for central Cambridge, excellent parking, making this an ideal stop over hotel. The desk staff varied but on the whole were very helpful. The room was very clean.

          The bed was so soft that I had to sleep on the floor.

        • Single
          6.6

          The hotel is frustratingly stuffy in summer weather. The staff are the same.

        • Single
          8.8

          Nice, old-fashioned feel and a great location.
