This new hotel is delightfully placed close to the river Cam and about 50yds from a Punt renting point; yet it is also within 400yds. of at least 6 of Cambridge's fine colleges, all of which are worthy of a visit.
The rooms, which vary in size and amenities, are very nicely appointed and the roof terrace bar/ restaurant is to die for if you like looking down 360 degrees, and it isn't raining.
Breakfast is served in a charming nearly detached room and mezzanine and is generous in its breadth of choice and quality. We didn't have time to try the services of the Spa, but it all looked good.
Downside is the parking, but it is in Cambridge! The nearby public car park is expensive and about 150 yds away.
The upside is the kindness of the young staff, from a number of countries, and their determination to to make your stay enjoyable and unproblematic ( Is that a word?)
