I stayed for one night in his hotel whilst on business in Cambridge, and was happy with everything during my stay.
The hotel is central to Cambridge City Centre, situated less than 10 minutes walk from the railway station and the heart of the city, and unusually for Cambridge the hotel offered free parking for residents (many hotels in the city charge up to £20 a day for residents).
The staff on the reception desk were friendly, and Alex on reception helped sort out a problem with connecting to the free Wi-Fi in my room by giving me an alternative login, which worked fine. The bedroom was of a good size and the air-con kept the room at a comfortable temperature. There was a TV in the room, plenty of coffee / tea / hot chocolate, and several power points. The bathroom contained a 'wet room' shower and the drench shower head was great...I could have stayed under it for hours!
Breakfast was tasty (arrangement was to give your name to the staff member who then lets you go through to the buffet of fresh fruit, cereals, juices, etc, and then you are seated in the main restaurant and waiting staff take your order). I had the 'Cambridge Breakfast' (sausage, egg on thin toast, mushroom, thick cut bacon, Sauted potatoes), and was happy with the quality of the food and there wasn't too long to wait.
With a city centre location, free Wi-Fi, and free parking, it represents a good deal when comparing it to other city centre hotels in Cambridge...would happily recommend.
