I stayed for one night for business reasons and as I do know the Cambridge area this review is strictly on the hotel alone.
A warm welcome was given and the staff are lovely. It is clean and even though it is on a main road, that looks quite shabby to be really honest, the hotel does not reflect any of that shabbiness. The hotel has lots of character, it is quaint but not ancient, and has a really good 'feel good factor'.
The rooms are lovely and spacious and the bathrooms are probably larger than average and really well heated. There are some very slight signs of wear and tear ( ie if you were a contestant on Four in a Bed) like peeling paint work in some patches and grooves that need filling etc, but to be honest that is just being fussy and I have probably watched that programme too often, so I was simply looking for things that others might rather than anything that actually was a problem. They provide bottled water, fresh fruit, tea and coffee etc in the rooms and a good range of toiletries in the bathroom. I had a balcony overlooking Parkers Piece, which was nice to open the doors and get some fresh air in the morning.
Breakfast is contintental and for a relatively small hotel gives a good spread of pastries, rolls, cheese and ham, cerials, toast, yoghurts, juices etc. Service again was good and really friendly.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to any colleague, friend or family for a one or two night stay if visiting Cambridge. There is also a really good Turkish restaurant within a minutes walk and worth a visit.
