I stayed here a couple of times in May and June 2011. The first time I had a standard room, and the second time one of the executive rooms on the 3rd floor. I don't know if the price difference was worth the upgrade to the executive room. It's a nice room, but the view is nothing special (there are trees obscuring it completely) and the balcony was tiny and furnished with the smallest table and chairs I have ever seen (this could be easily fixed by the hotel as I noticed unused areas on both sides of the balcony which could be converted into usable space). In any case case, I always slept well here, which is what matters, and found the rooms quiet (yes, the secondary glazing works). Service is fine and with a bit of a family-run feel to it. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nothing to write home about, and the buffet could be improved. Internet is charged at £4 a day if I remember correctly. The air con system in the rooms is excellent and easy to use. Water pressure in the shower took a little while to work. The room had no mini bar but had tea and coffee facilities, some fruit, a biscuit and a bottle of water. Anyway... It's not the Hilton, and it's not Du Vin. I think it could be a top choice in Cambridge if they reduced their prices by about 5-10% and went more after the budget-conscious business traveller. At the moment it's just slightly north of the sweet spot, price-wise.
