I stayed 3 nights on a business trip. I've read other reports which say that it's old-world but that's in keeping with the building. In the rooms, the wallpaper and curtains aren't the latest trend but are in keeping with the style of the hotel. My room was comfortable, the bathroom spotlessly clean, complimentary toiletries provided, towels of high quality cotton. The bed was comfortable and the bedding also high quality. The room had TV, telephone, in-room safe, ironing board, a good supply of complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits. You couldn't ask for any more.
The breakfast room is beautiful, very stylish and views over Parker's Piece give an excellent start to the working day. The buffet is more than adequate, hot beverages are brought to you freshly brewed and the main course (seven choices in all) is cooked to order. The food is fresh and that makes such a difference.
Every member of staff I spoke to was extremely polite and very helpful. The hotel states multi-lingual staff. Perhaps they would consider a badge (maybe a flag pin) to indicate which languages the staff speak.
This is by far the best Cambridge hotel I have stayed in. I'll use it again on future visits.
