This is an very nice hotel in the small village of Hinxton in the middle of England's countryside. Hinxton is close to the Imperial Air Museum in Duxford and Cambridge and the M11. Behind the old pub there are several reasonably equipped rooms in a recently built terrace house, all rooms with direct access from the garden. In the room there were two separate good beds and a nice bathroom. The walls were a bit thin, so some noises could be heard from next door. The pub garden was nice and well maintained.
The dinner and breakfast were both very good and served in the pub restaurant. Why go further when such good food is available on site. The room plus breakfast cost GBP 90/night which was reasonable for what I received. Good parking was available in the rear.
