“Good for short break”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Just returned from a 2 day stay at this hotel ,very clean hotel, polite staff ,although we had a room facing the a14 we heard little road noise ,free car parking is a bonus ,the only draw back to this hotel is its about 3 miles out of Cambridge with nothing in the way of shops or pubs near by apart from the Premier bar and restaurant ,bus stop 5 minutes walk away buses every 15 minutes during the day every 30 minutes in the evening we used the bus, car parking in Cambridge is hard to find during the day, very busy with hundreds of push bikes wizzing everywhere .

Always stay in Premier Inns for business, the standard of cleanliness is always good, beds comfy, water pressure for baths good! All in all, very pleased. Stayed here for 2 nights in April, had 2 great nights sleep - not disturbances, was on quiet zone 8th floor which I recommend! We also ate in the restaurant and the food was really good, service kept very chirpy by Aneta - even though we did wait about 2 hours for the food! Receptionist was also really chatty, friendly and helpful. Just needs free unlimited Wifi and it would be even better !

Room Tip: if you don't want to be disturbed with any noise choose room 806 which is in the quiet zone and...

Stayed here for 2 nights over the Easter weekend in a family room which was on the ground floor in a separate wing. Beds clean and comfortable. Bathroom good too except toilet needed hard flushing and shower head attached to wall (prefer hand held one).

Really new and clean hotel. In a newly created area on the edge of town. Staff very efficient. Upon arrival we didn't have enough towels. One phone call to reception and more were brought straight away. Loads of parking. Children's play area just outside.

Breakfast area a bit on the small side for the sheer numbers using the buffet. Long queues for the hot food. But comfortable seating and clean. Not a good choice of continental breakfast as no croissants. Toaster quite slow moving also.

I would suggest the hot food be served at the tables rather than be self service. Or it should be moved to the far end so the cold foods (cereal, fruit, yoghurt) could be accessed more easily.

Lots of delay with the card keys for opening the doors. Had to try repeatedly every time we wanted to enter to get the green light to activate.

Also quite a few issues with locating the hotel as the postcodes (plural) given were not accurate so our sat nav couldn't find it. This may have been due to the new nature of the hotel and our sat nav being older!

All I'm all very happy with our stay and would recommend to others as long as you have a car as otherwise a bit far from the town centre etc.

We will definitely be booking with Premier Inn again :-)

Although the hotel was fully booked it still remained quiet and peaceful, very comfortable room, with very friendly staff, a lovely new building, in a modern area which is being built in Cambridge, :0)

This appears to be a purpose built Premier Inn, so the room was very much on the standard layout. We were high up, facing the A14, there was an element of road noise, but not sufficient to disturb us with closed windows. The room was clean and comfortable and the public areas seem to be well maintained.

Reception staff were welcoming on check in. Although we hadn't booked breakfast they were keen to tell us when it was likely to quietest and when there would probably be queues - there were also notices in the lift with this information.

We didn't have breakfast, but did eat in the restaurant (Thyme); food and service were fine - only slight issue was that the open plan layout means that there can be a draught from the main entrance doors when they open.

Location is a bit unusual on a housing estate, close to a primary school (the playground was open to all outside school time it appeared). Good connection to Cambridge by the local bus or the Park and Ride from the next A14 junction.

Great stay, new hotel on the outskirts of Cambridge.

Bus routes to town centre very close and not expensive, so ideal if you don't require a central location.

A14 road noise, which is behind the hotel, is not as bad as some have said.

Overall very good stay.
