“Good base to see Cambridge from”
Reviewed 5 June 2011

Stayed there with my girlfriend and friends recently and had a pleasant stay. The hotel is a couple of miles from town - about £10 by taxi which the hotel staff ordered without a fuss. The hotel was clean, tidy, and modern. The bed was comfortable but the walls were a little thin. Breakfast was full english of average quality, nothing special. Good base whilst seeing Cambridge if you're happy with the taxi/bus/drive situation.

Handy for why we were there (job interviews) but not a romantic hotel by any means. We were confused when we got there because we were led out of the hotel, across a road and into what looked like someone's house that had actually been converted into rooms! The room was basic, the decor a little drab and dated. Breakfast was good and filling. I wouldn't stay here again, only because it was a bit depressing.

Well, when I walked through the door I was exhausted after all the rigmarole at Heathrow,
I sat down on a chair and with all my bags clutched around me, my hair all mussed, I must have looked like a pile-up on I-95. A young lady helped me with my things and asked me all sorts of things about the mu-mu I was wearing.
I was checked in real quick and business like - which I appreciated. The room wasn't anything big or nothin but sure was comfy and warm. Clean as a pin. When I called down for a hand towel, they sent up this dashing young englishman who replaced all the towels for fresh ones. I'm sure I must have bored him to death tellin him all about gettin delayed in Heathrow and how hot and stuffy it was sweating like a stuck pig then I got all excited and told him my plans to go back to Ireland after the UK, but he just smiled, nodded 'Charming' he'd say. I asked him if he could remake the bed while he was there. He seemed a little put-off by this but I was gettin the sheets off at this stage and handed him one corner of the sheet. The english are very hospitable so I asked him if he'd like to try some Mississippi Bourbon but he sort of blushed and quickly left -- guess I need to know the etiquette of these brits better; my they're a lot shyer than the Irish!

Anwyay - no complaints about this place for a one-nighter!

Back to Ireland soon!

For all you traveling IT people, this is not a place to scoff at.
Fairly basic and pretty crappy food.
But there's beer and a bed.

Say no more.

The landlord's attitude torwards me was extremely violent. I urge anyone considering visiting cambridge to avoid this place unless you are handy with your fist as the landlord as a habit of settling disputes with the use of violence. True budget accommodation ( a company used by a number of corporate organisations for booking hotel rooms) have blacklisted this establishment because of the violent attitude of the landlord.
