We were in Cambridge for one night only (sadly!) and chose this hotel because it is only a 5 minute walk from the train station, which meant we could leave our luggage and walk into town without the heavy loads. We had a bedroom on the ground floor at the back, overlooking the car park. The room was small for a twin room, but it was comfortable, and the bathroom was excellent and super clean. We really appreciated the coffee and tea making facilities in the room, which is often lacking in more expensive hotels these days. An excellent walk-in wardrobe meant the luggage could all be packed away. Breakfast was very good - in fact, the bacon was great, well cooked and not too salty. Staff were extremely helpful. I needed an ironing board and iron, which arrived outside our room door within 2 minutes.
Some people might prefer to stay closer to the centre of Cambridge, but there is a shortage of good accommodation in Cambridge, and to be honest - the walk into town was a nice 15 minute walk. For those who don't like to stretch their legs, there is a bus stop right outside the hotel from where buses leave just about every 5 minutes. Bear in mind that at rush hour traffic the traffic in/out of the centre is at a standstill quite regularly, so at those times walking is a much better option.
Make sure you go to the Fitzwilliam Museum, again a pleasant 15 minute stroll, which has an amazing exhibition on Vermeer's Women until mid-January. Don't miss it!
