“Good Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

We stayed at Arundel House for three nights on a weekend break. The reasons I chose this particular hotel were the location, and the fact that there was car parking. The room was small and so was the bathroom. It was kept immaculately clean, with toiletries provided. The staff were pleasant and efficient at all times (despite reviews to the contrary). It could get a little bit noisy in the mornings when the neighbouring rooms were using the showers, with water pipes creaking under the strain. The continental breakfast was adequate, nothing more. Full breakfast was an additional £7.95, which was expensive (Weatherspoons pub across the road, Tivoli, served breakfast from £2.49). All things considered, it was a great break. apart from the weather, but can't hold the hotel accountable for that!

Room Tip: The hotel advertises rooms at the sister hotel, The Ashley, 5mins. away. These are larger, cheaper a...

I stayed here recently for two nights, i think every room in the hotel was full. My room was in an additional building which looked mainly of wooden construction to the rear of the main hotel building and adjacent to the car park. I could here every noise in the adjoining rooms and from the car park outside. the shower was either hot or cold with nothing in between. The light in the main room did not work and was not repaired when reported, if I wanted the light on I had to turn on the light in the bathroom which also turned on the extractor fan. The room was clean, Service was average, not fast but adequate. The whole place has a period feel about it; some would say dated. I would agree parts of the hotel need bringing up to date.

Breakfast was nothing special just your average cooked breakfast.

If you are staying here try and get a room in the main building.

As others have stated the best thing about this hotel is its location which I can't fault.

Room Tip: Aim for the main building.

My wife was here on business, I was just there to keep her company and do family tree research.
The staff are absolutely wonderful, charming, attentive ... the room is a bit small, and was rather warm (in June), but comfortable. Shower OK, though it would help if there were a shelf to put the shower gel on (there is one outside the shower but it necessitates opening the door completely).
Restaurant excellent, as is the Conservatory, and the breakfasts were wonderful. Location good for wife walking to work

Room Tip: No lifts. If you have dodgy legs book a ground floor room. As it is the restaurant and conservatory...

the staff were all very friendly, the continental breakfast was really good and the double superior room spacious, clean and comfortable. We stayed in the Coach House so the room was quiet, the front of the hotel does overlook a road but also the river and green. The location is very good for the city centre and within walking distance. Car park a bonus. Check in and check out very efficient. Not cheap but definitely worthy of better reviews than are posted here.

Room Tip: If you have trouble climbing stairs then you need to let them know when you book.

I stayed here for business, and my room was tiny. However I only paid £85, so it was not that bad considering Cambridge prices. The location is excellent and the staff are helpful. The breakfast is ok, overall, this place is ok but nothing special. If you want a decent nights sleep in a good location this hotel is for you. Good for business/family sort of stay, but would definitively not come here for a holiday or a romantic getaway type trip.

This hotel is located very conveniently for most of Cambridge. It's just across the street from a park with a lovely stroll to the Cam and the center of town. The rooms are large and clean, and the car park is quite large and easily accessible. But the hotel itself is expensive and somewhat pretentious for what you get. Continental breakfast is adequate at best, not what I'd expect at those rates.

Stayed here 2 nights with a 4 others. The location is really good and has the benefit of a car park, and generally clean and comfortable hotel, if a little dated in décor, but things do start to go downhill after that. The restaurant's food is average at best and breakfast could certainly be improved. The service was appalling. Long wait to be seated mainly due to lack of staff and the ones that are there are on a slower than go slow to clear and re lay tables. With the exception of a young man ( shaved head ) on Wednesday 3rd June, who was running around like a headless chicken trying to clear tables and get everyone seated, he had no help from the rest of the staff. If fact one woman ( Bev I believe her name was) was being incredibly obstructive. When she cleared a table we watched in amazement that she walked back and forth carrying one knife, then back to collect one fork and then back to collect one cup and saucer, and so on!!!! Obviously behind the scenes staff personality problems, but that should not be taken out on the guests as it was us that suffered.
My other problem was on my first morning I had a newspaper delivered under my door. I did not order a paper. I went down to tell reception and that said sorry, but the next morning again another newspaper was delivered. Staff need guidance and how to work as a team.
