Stayed in January as part of a visit to the Cambridge Distillery and the hotel was superb. I can't remember the name of our suite, but it was a dual aspect room with floor to ceiling views of Cambridge - stunning and allowed us to take in the January view from the coziness of our room.
We only stayed one night and so because of the cracking room we didnt spend too much time in the communal areas.
Great location, very central for Cambridge, if a little confusing on how to get to it with the one way system in place. We opted for valet parking - definitely worth the money.
Breakfast was ok, we only opted for the contintental breakfast included with the room which was average - juice not fresh, pastries older (or from a packet?) etc
For once the gym facilities are actually very good, new equipment, proper weights area - worth a visit if you're interested.
Five points for the room, three for the breakfast.
