“Find somewhere else to stay”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Stayed here for two nights for a wedding celebration in Cambridge. The rooms were like saunas with very little ventilation or fans. The staff were mostly unhelpful and the restaurant bar staff were quite rude on several occasions. The breakfast is not worth bothering with (one morning was a 45 minute wait) and the meal served one evening was tasteless and very overpriced. The hotel has so much potential but is spoilt by the poor service and high price.

The location is good - it is near Jesus Green and only a few minutes walk to town centre. There is a nice restaurant with a good menu at reasonable price. However the service at the restaurant is not as good as it could have been, particularly at the breakfast sessions. The room is spacious and clean. We were staying in the ground floor front room so in the morning there is the usual traffic noise. The wifi connection did not work 3 out of 6 days that we were staying.

Room Tip: It will be better to have a first floor room that is not facing the main road.

Stayed here for a night not a luxury hotel but good location a modern bar and rooms ok we stayed in the coach house out buildings not too hot overall it did the job the female in the bar is a bit miserable ?? Don't get that but perhaps she's just good at hiding her happy face !!!

Room Tip: Always ask if you can have your room early we got ours but of we hadn't asked I don't think...

This hotel is good value. Prices around this district are high and I did not expect so much. But it surprised me. A big car park, that most other hotels charge for, was available. I had a room facing the road and the river, good fun! I could have my cup of tea and look out on the river and the people walking by.

Breakfast has, as you can read in the reviews, mainly cheese. I did spot some marmite. The rooms are reasonable, my bathroom did not smell nice but the room was fine. A single room consisting of a comfortable chair (near the window so I could watch the people passing by) a desk and cabbet. Fine.

Again, location is great.

Room Tip: If traffic bothers you it would be a good idea to book a room at the back.

Location is nice, centre of Cambridge on walking distance (although on a rather busy road) and hotel has ample parking space. But that ends all positive to say about this hotel. Room and bed small for a double room. Room had a distinctive stale smell, even the next day after having had the window open all the night. Staff uninspiring and not very hospital. A family next to us was refused warm breakfast because they ordered it at 10.00 and the kitchen closed at 10.00. We felt unwanted and overcharged. Pity, because the hotel has good potential. But I advice to avoid it as long as there is no change in management. Every b&b in Cambridge will probably give you better service, better room and better facities against much lower prices.

Great location, free parking and very clean. Room small and quite hot in this weather

Breakfast terrible, had to point out mould on the brown bread. Continental is a bit of an exaggeration, where were the meats and cheese choices?

Go on give everyone the English breakfast they have pretty much paid fir already instead of trying to charge an extra £7.95 and your ratings will go up!

We stayed in the coach house in the back of the hotel car park. Our room was immaculate (as was the whole hotel) and beds were very comfortable. We found it quiet and a night's sleep was had.
It was very hot however, a fan in the room would have been helpful.
The continental breakfast was quite limited and had a few problems like very hot water glasses and melted butter on the fresh tables which could be a bit of a health hazzard.
The staff all seemed slightly overworked and the breakfast staff in particular seemed quite stressed and looked annoyed if you bothered them.
A few niggles really that a little bit of further training and a few more staff could sort out but mostly a nice little hotel.
