We stayed here during the recent Cambridge Folk Festival (excellent BTW) and found the hotel friendly and clean
Free wifi and parking were both much appreciated as was the quiet location
The room was clean and generous with a good shower - much needed after a day's bopping!
The only criticism is that ventilation in the room was a limited meaning a couple of warm nights when the UK was almost mediteranean - not a problem normally I imagine!
One thing to be aware off is that while most of the rooms have recently been refurbished, some have not. And work on these started on 1st August 2011 so might cause some disruption
We only used the room, eating elsewhere and so can't comment on the kitchen.
