“Convenient to train station”
Reviewed 14 April 2008

This was a large (self-catering) apartment that is in a residential building within a 5 minute walk to the Cambridge train station. We paid about 80pounds for one night, and it was definitely a good value considering the amount of space - nice-sized bedroom with quality linens and a wardrobe, large living room-dining room combo with a fully-stocked kitchen attached (cookware, silverware, plates, range with oven, fridge, microwave, toaster, hot pot, even a dishwasher). There was even bread, milk, butter, and jams provided. There was a small flat-screen TV in the living room, but it was mounted in an awkward position so that it was hard to see it while sitting on the couch. Also, the power cable was disconnected and we had to search around before finally finding it in one of the cupboards. The apartment was a little drafty at times, but there were electric heaters that did a good job. There was no alarm clock or safe, but there was an iron/ironing board. The apartment was a short walk (maybe 15-20 minutes or so) to the colleges, and there were shops and restaurants nearby. Toiletries were not provided, and we actually ran out of toilet paper since there were not extra rolls to be found in the apartment. The double bed was actually two twin beds that were pulled together - a little uncomfortable at times. In summary, this is a large, recently renovated, spacious place that would be perfect if you plan on cooking a lot of your own meals.

My boyfriend and I stay at an Octavia Apartment for a romantic weekend getaway. We had a wonderful time, the apartment was beautiful, everything new and clean, very smartly decorated , high quality furnishings, a well equipped kitchen with everything we needed, a luxury power shower and plenty of hot water.

The manager met us at the property, showed us around and said she was on call if we had any problems (of which we did not, everything went smoothly) Very reasonable price for what we got! Will defiantly stay again! Well done Octavia Apartments!
