      Individual guest reviews

      • The location was good, the hotel was very comfortable and the lovely old lift was very sweet, the staff were friendly and helpful. The bathroom was huge and clean, the breakfast excellent, the bar ran out of bottled Londons Pride and an alternative bitter was not available. Restaurant was quite nice.

        Very expensive parking charges, probably not worth the money and low quality 1970's style food. Not being able to park on arrival, poor service and room was over hot during night.

      • Central location, a warm welcome and staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Also price of the room did not include breakfast made the rate not good value for money and the evening meal in the restaurant was nothing short of exceptional.

        Car park underneath the hotel very ugly, very cramped bathroom.

      • Location nice breakfast and a fine hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and the bath was as wide as Kare Moss's waist. Interestingly by day 3 the music had gone and peace and quiet reigned.

        Room ect looked tired.

        Low on quality, friendly, helpful staff and the room that we stayed in was dirty, mismatched and worn. The wedding breakfast /dinner was really bad.

      • The location was perfect and the welcome was excellent and everything about our room met our expectations. Staff were friendly and helpful, bed was comfortable, breakfast was well worth the effort.

        Extremly bad and overpriced hotel, furniture broken, not the best choice in Cambridge.

      • The location is excellent, a very oldie worldy hotel a quick 5 min walk to the center and polite, friendly staff and clean rooms are an asset.

        Very dated decor, extremely small bathroom and luke warm drinks served at breakfast eventually. The service at dinner was very slow.

      • The location is perfect, continental also option for cooked eggs etc. nice bar Will stay again for sure and the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfy, good facilities for the major dinner I attended.

        Moved to another hotel locally, slow service and carpet, curtains and bedding all very worn and mismatched. Stained ceiling toilet and menu in restaurant was very limited.

      • Nice view from breakfast room and convenient car park. Comfartable old world hotel, awesome venue for wedding night and staff are particularly friendly and helpful. Food is 5 star standard and a good menu choice.

        The decor was poor, service was slow and bathroom was tiny measuring 6feet by 2 feet.
