I stayed at this hotel when visiting my daughter who is at Uni in Cambridge. It was a surprise visit for her birthday and I was so disappointed I wish I had stayed at my usual spot the Days Inn. This hotel is filthy, the bathroom had mould on the shower curtain, the window frames are covered in mildew, the toilet was dirty...all round horrible. The only good thing was that the bed was comfortable. I paid extra for breakfast in my room and this was cold by the time it arrived. Wouldn't normally give a place a terrible review like this, however, I complained to hotel reception at the time of my visit and they said they agreed that the hotel needed an upgrade! I contacted DeVere on 2 occasions after I returned to let them know how I felt about being charged £125 for such poor accomodation. I have not had an acknowledgement from them which would imply that they don't really mind what their guests think. Having read some similar reviews I think it's only fair that people know what they are wasting their money on.
