Visited and stayed many times in the past. But this will be the last.
Booked, registered and had tea here on a Sunday afternoon and used the car park. Could have parked on the street outside which would have been free on a Sunday afternoon. A week later received a fine for £60. Called the hotel and was told I had to pay it.
The tea was ok but considering it was for a couple it wasn't very symmetrical. Tea choice was limited, the two types we ordered were out of stock. Surprised a tea strainer wasn't standard either. Bread was stale. And the music...MTV in an afternoon tea establishment???
Considering the afternoon cost £90 with the car park charge I have no intention of ever going back. Also no chance of booking family and colleagues in here ever again. There are too many alternatives in Cambridge for such poor behaviour.
