We arrived around 5pm for our 21 year anniversary weekend in Cambridge to be told that our room has been refurbished but not to worry they would upgrade us to one of the larger suites. This was a classy gesture. The room was fantastic and views from balcony spectacular. Car parking was no problem, a few mins walk away in the Castle car park - only £3 and free all day Sunday. My wife waited in the lounge which had a good selection of drinks and magazines.
The staff on sat evening were very accomodating and sunday extremely helpful and friendly. Could not fault any of them - 10 out of 10.
Breakfast was buffet style and everything you could need sat alongside the river. Getting to the breakfast room was a bit weird through the spa entrance but it was not a problem once we knew the way.
We were so close the city that we spent all our time out eating, shopping or at the cool Picturehouse cinema and forgot to even try the hotel Spa. Maybe next time ..... will definitely return if we can get a room !
