Arundel House Hotel
Ranked #25 of 36 Hotels in Cambridge
Reviewed 8 April 2013

I stayed at the Arundel House Hotel in March 2013, I had a single room which was very clean and comfortable, no complaints whatsoever, just a short walk from the city centre. Everything about this Hotel was spot on, give it a try you won't be disappointed.

The location was central and convenient for walking. The hotel and rooms were comfortable and the service was good, though it was odd to hear the employees complaining about their jobs while at work and in earshot of customers. The hotel restaurant food was delicious, albeit quite pricey.

I stayed here as my College in central Cambridge had no "room at the inn". It was a good choice, and at £67.50 incl. Continental Breakfast pretty good value. My room was small but clean and it had every amenity. Plenty of free car parking at the back of the hotel - quite a plus in Cambridge, as some hotels charge £18 for this. The hotel overlooks Midsummer Common and it is a pleasant 15 min walk from the historic centre. I would certainly come again.

I booked my single room including continental breakfast on a rack rate direct to hotel at seventy five pounds.

The hotel is centrally located with easy foot access to the City and the hotel offers good car parking.

This one night stay really was a mixed experience. The bar, lounge, conservatory and restaurant are lovely making you feel cosy and relaxed. Prices are OK for drinks and staff are friendly.

However, the room I was given, albeit clean was cold and very cramped offering an experience which was completely opposite to the public areas.

The breakfast was poor. The continental offering was unimaginative with fruit that had seen better days. The one banana was black and bruised, cereal choice was three options and cold croissants. To upgrade to a full english option was seven pounds ninety five but was smaller than a Little Chef - a rip off.

For a weekend there were not many guests. The hotel served its purpose but I am not sure I would return for more than one night.

Room Tip: avoid a single room

Its difficult to rate this hotel as it apparently doesn’t claim to have any stars. Overall it was considered somewhat poor value for money; but it was a busy graduation/half term weekend and Cambridge is a popular tourist city short of good accommodation, which naturally inflates prices too… The value for money is also reduced by the late check in [15-00] and early check out of 10-30 [11-00 on Sunday], plus the basic rate only includes a Continental Breakfast.

The room allocated was in the quiet “Coach House” annex in the grounds to the rear. It was spacious, clean and well presented with a large “double” bed [i.e. two singles put side by side with sheets over the join]. Despite being on the ground floor noise [from rooms above or the car park outside the window] wasn’t a problem resulting in a very good nights sleep. The Continental Breakfast with a good selection of items was ample, following the large college dinner eaten the previous night, although tea and coffee pots seemed to get mixed up...!

The reception staff were cheerful and polite, with one helping me locate a [renamed?] street in Cambridge I wasn’t familiar with. The hotel is handily located opposite Jesus Green so quite close to many colleges, city centre etc.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Coach House Annex are quieter for a good nights sleep.

We stayed at the Arundel for an social evening with our car club friends. This was a group booking arranged through the club. For £150 we had bed breakfast and evening meal. We had a double room in the Coach House which is an annex at the back of the hotel. The room was spacious with a huge comfortable bed (6ft wide!). It had the usual hotel facilities of reasonable quality. Bathroom was clean except for a dribble mark down the front of the toilet pan. We had a 3 course evening meal which was nice. Some of our party complained of slow service. The service wasnt quick, but it stretched out the evening nicely, and with a group of 12 of us there was lively conversation to fill the time between courses. My partner and I had been privy to some information that there was another group of 17 people also dining that night, so making allowances for this, I dont feel there was much to complain about. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The bar prices werent extortionate, but a pity it closed at 12am. Our room rate included a full english Breakfast (I think a standard room rate included a continental breakfast or an extra £7.95 to have the full). I think it was one of the best hotel breakfasts I have had. High quality bacon and sausage. Overall, I couldnt say that it was "value of money", but it wasnt a disappointment.

I was impressed by the single room. It was well-appointed and not too small, with everything one could hope for - attractive decor, good t.v, plenty of storage space, comfortable bed, good shower, and clean. The continental breakfast was excellent and the whole was very good value indeed.

Room Tip: Front room facing the river and Jesus Green would have the best view but it would be quieter round t...
