This hotel has been smartened up a bit since I was a student in Cambridge. Rooms are now quite smart, though I noticed they weren't properly sound proof - I could hear conversations from other rooms.
We paid extra for a river view, which is worth it. We booked an advance deal on their site, and it was £119 - but no breakfast with that.
Beware - parking is extra - it was £15 for one day. I couldn't see any mention of this when I booked, despite looking to see whether it was included.
Staff were fairly helpful, but not really friendly. Also, the cleaning staff in the morning made a lot of noise. Kept banging the adjacent doors - it was bad enough that I called down to reception to ask them to keep the noise down.
The position here is great, especially if you get a river view, and the rooms are comfortable. Beyond that, there isn't much to recommend the hotel. Cambridge is expensive for what you get, so there isn't a great choice here overall.
