.....which others might not mind at all. This hotel is in a superb position, right in the middle of the Cambridge colleges, very close to interesting independent shops, the Reception staff are very friendly, we had a lovely large room with a view of the river, the restaurant dinner and breakfast food and staff were all good - but oh dear, the music in the restaurant for both meals was dreadful Europop, impossible to ignore ind incredibly irritating. Good music (which we had at the Anchor, a fabulous pub that is very close, another plus for this hotel) enhances a meal, silence is also welcomed, but annoying music might make us eat elsewhere next time - and I hope there is a next time. I can't remember music in the bar, possibly I was distracted by the perfect Margarita and comfortable chairs! Overall, we were very happy with the hotel and would warmly recommend its location, price, comfort and general ambience, but please change the music!

Room Tip: Request a room with a view of the river.

Dear Lancastrienne, Thank you for your recent review I am pleased to read that you had an enjoyable stay with us and were able to enjoy so many of the hotel facilities and found the hotel to be a good central base for your trip. I am sorry that you found the Brasserie music to be irritating and will ensure this feedback is passed on. I hope that you will be able to visit us again soon as our perfect Margarita’s are even better enjoyed on our beautiful Riverside Terrace when the weather warms up a little! I look forward to welcoming you back soon, Kind Regards, Stacey White, Operations Manager DoubleTree Cambridge

My partner and I have stayed at the Doubletree twice now and the standard is generally very high. Staff are very helpful and the check in procedure is efficient. The cookie is a bonus! Rooms are plush and modern. We love the breakfasts (which can provide enough food alone to keep you going through the day!).

Room Tip: One thing to note is if you stay weekends here there are likely to be parties. If you are offered a...

Great setting, with the grounds of the property rolling down to the river, lovely view from the restaurant and our room (see cows and swans picture below -- what could be more idyllic?). Right next to where one can hire punts, and within walking distance of most of what one would do in Cambridge (the Colleges, Fitzwilliam Museum, restaurants). Rooms were nice and clean, front desk and concierge friendly and helpful. A perfectly satisfying three-day weekend experience.

Nice to have an indoor pool in a Cambridge hotel - the leisure center is in general very pleasant.

The view from most of the rooms is very nice and the location makes eating , drinking in and around Cambridge very easy.

Room Tip: Ask for 2nd floor to get a nice view over the colleges.

A comfortable business hotel with probably the best location in Cambridge – quiet, central and by the river, and exceptionally helpful staff. On the downside, the hotel in not itself especially atmospheric, and – if you are paying full rates – the presentation of the breakfast buffet might seem surprisingly mass-market.

Room Tip: Views vary from the charming (river) to the prosaic (car park), so ask.

Location excellent, parking charges a little bit of a sting (£17.50 per day).
Check in excellent lovely room with strong shower and big fluffy towels
The hotel was a little dated in the architecture probably built in the 70's early 80's !
View looked straight out to the waterways.
Close to the city centre to walk there along the river and was able to look at all the colleges although some were shut due to Christmas.
evening meal was good quality and the breakfast was good although there wasnt a greta fruit selection.
Would I stay there again ? Yes the only downside is the parking charges still this is Cambridge.

Dear Harrogate GB, Thank you for your review. It is great to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and also had the opportunity to experience the food in the Riverside Brasserie. I am pleased that the location provided you with a central base to explore the city and hope that you will return in the near future to see this beautiful city in the spring and summer months. Our parking charges are reviewed regularly and do offer good value city centre parking as all residents are given until midnight on the day of departure to remove their cars under the fixed price of £17.50 per night. I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back soon. Kind Regards, Stacey White, Operations Manager.
