Probably the polite description of this hotel is "quirky". It's within walking distance of Cambridge city centre and if you time your arrival well you can park for free at the front of the hotel.
Our room was small, but OK for two nights - a bit of a struggle to find anywhere to pile the numerous cushions that we had to take off the bed before going to sleep. The bedcover was stained, although the sheets were clean. There was a flat screen TV, free wifi and a clock-radio with Ipod dock, but everything else felt quite dated. The biggest problem was the pale curtains, which meant that the first night we woke when it got light - around 4.30. The second night we made good use of the unpleasant bedcover & tucked that into the curtain rail! We were at the back so there was no road noise, but we could hear quite a lot of talking which we weren’t sure if it came from other guests or staff.
Breakfast was OK – cooked & continental options, but slightly odd that when helping yourself to the buffet a member of staff had to take the lid off the hot food for you. We tried the bar one night – but tiny, no atmosphere and very small selection of drinks. We would recommend The Snug just along the road – great cocktail selection!
