This is an excellent hotel situated near the canal at Granta Place, Cambridge. Very close to the town center and within easy walking distance to all the colleges of Cambridge University and shopping. Wonderful staff and service and the view from the rooms are wonderful ( punting on the canal, swans and ducks swimming etc.) After graduation at Wolfson College, University of Cambridge, I left my degree in my room by mistake and the staff kindly couriered it to London for me. Excellent Service and Excellent Staff

Room Tip: Riverside View Excellent

This location is (on a sunny day) hotel heaven. The garden is great. Situated on the river, facing south with lots of sun, many boats passing by with on the opposite side more gardens and green. I loved it; but then again, it was the first sunny summerday this year

Our son and his wife celebrated their wedding at the Double Tree Hilton last weekend and we can't speak highly enough of the service, the staff, and the accommodation provided. Everyone went out of their way to make our 2 night stay pleasant, comfortable and memorable. Thanks to all staff at Double Tree Cambridge!

I stayed there many times and all rooms, all time are perfect.

I even tried the suite and it is a great place to be with your kids.

Room Tip: Try to have a room on the river, the view is better

Friendly, helpful staff in a nice hotel in a great location for the City and surrounding areas. Would stay here again. Did not use the leisure facilities but the breakfast was great. Upgraded via Hilton Honors as soon as I walked in.

The location is great, really central and with car park. Otherwise the hotel is unremarkable. It's what you might expect from a good hotel, but nothing stands out. we didn't use the leisure facilities so can't comment on that.
We did eat in the restaurant and that was nice, again nothing remarkable.
Top marks however to staff, very friendly, and very helpful.
I would definitely stay here again, mostly because of its location.

As a business hotel, the hotel is ok but in comparison to other Hiltons and value for money as a Gold member room upgrades are poor and there is no executive lounge. Hotel corridors and stair ways smelt musty. In general: Not bad, but not directly recommendable either.
