“Brilliant stay, wonderful restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2011

Stayed at the Hotel Felix for one night at the weekend. The bedroom was spotless, chic and spacious and the bathroom was great with a brilliant shower. Not a mean feat for a large hotel! We had both a shower and a bath although I only used the former. There was a turndown service which was a nice touch and the hotel has pretty grounds to utilise. We enjoyed a drink in the bar which was very modern, classy and had a nice atmosphere. We then went through to the restaurant where the service was faultless, the food was presented beautifully and tasted fantastic and there was a nice atmosphere and a very relaxed vibe.
Would definitely recommend the Felix for great food and lovely accommodation. I am sure in the summer the location would be even more wonderful for dining al fresco or enjoying a G and T on the decking.
Only a 20min walk to cambridge centre so not bad if you prefer to dine out and you get the benefit of free parking and plenty of it.

Thank you for your review. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. You're right the terrace is beautiful in the summer and hopefully you noticed the Orangery which is being built. This will add to the summer appeal of Hotel Felix.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Hotel Felix soon

Held our annual christmas party here in December 2010 and from start to finish the hotel could not have been more helpful and accomodating - both leading up to the event and during the event itself. They offered help and advice with in-house entertainment (Spa day and lots of alternatives that the hotel could host). The food in the evening and for breakfast was of a very high standard and everyone thouroughly enjoyed it - they even prepared packed lunch for the male members of staff to take with them for a Karting day. They were on hand the entire time offering help and advice when needed - They are a great team and the hotel and function rooms have a lovely atmosphere.

After a very long day travelling through three countries and a two ferry trips, it was a delight to turn up to the Hotel Felix. From the off the staff were courtious, kind, and chatty. We both felt that there was nothing that they would not do to make our stay a delight.

We stayed in The Penthouse, room 11, and my husband had organised red roses and champagane, I know spoilt girl, they were beautifully displayed in the room. If it comes to attention to detail, then a vase with water provided so that I could immediately put them in has to be a real note.

The room is lovely and the bathroon is exceptional, beautifully decorated and wonderful attention to al that one might need. The underfloor heating was a joy.

The food in the Graffiti was truly fantastic, every mouthful was a delight and the service from both the bar and the waiting staff could not have been better, product knowldege through to ensuring comfort was perfect

Breakfast was on time and delicious - you might be guessing I loved this hotel and it is true I did, nothing dissapointed and there was not a single thing I could fault. I would recommend it to anyone who really wanted a break from the real world. It was heaven.

What a fantastic review! Thank you so much for your comments which I have passed on to all the staff who will be delighted to hear that they made your stay all the more memorable. We are so so pleased that you enjoyed your special evening and really do hope that you choose to return to Hotel Felix soon. You may have noticed that we are having a conservatory built which will be finished in April and will be a great addition to the hotel - perfect for summer drinks and afternoon tea. Perhaps you can make that your excuse to return!

I have been here a few times before, After the 1st visit i decided to book this as my wedding venue, thats how much i love it.
The food in the restaurant (grafiti) is just absolute perfection. I've eaten in very many posh restaurants before (the ivy, oxo tower, ramsays) but this exceeds all.
Location is good, easy to find and close enough to everything to be able to easily get about, however it is not central Cambs but the transport here is fantastic its so easy to get about.
The grounds of the hotel make you feel your a million miles away from it all, currently they are building a conservatory on the building which will be a nice add on for the summer.
The bar is modern and funky, everything impresses you from the toilet facilities to the flower displays.
If you go on their website they do offers for nights away like inc meal etc.
You will not be disapointed!

Hotel Felix is a wel appointed hotel in 2.5 miles from Cambridge city centre with direct and easy access to all the college sights. The service is very friendly despite being a large hotel. Decor is tasteful modern. The restaurant (Grafitti) is well acclaimed, and well worth a visit too. We booked for our parents, and they were very pleased with their stay.

Have just stayed at Felix hotel taking advantage of a special offer on room rate and dinner at graffiti restaurant. We stayed in the penthouse suite which was faultless, especially the fantastic bathroom, the meal we enjoyed was the best I can remember, all in all very nice at a total cost of 280 pounds for room and the meal I suppose it should be. I would struggle to pay more but at these prices its a nice treat. One small moan no free WiFi and mini bar crazy expensive otherwise thanks for a great night away from screaming kids.

Lovely contemporary hotel close to the city centre. Reception staff excellent and made us feel welcome. Room very nice and spacious and tastefully decorated. The bathroom let it down as a hotel with a 4* rating as it could have been a bit cleaner.....mould in shower in places and dirt around sink taps (get an old toothbrush around them like I do!). Loved the toiletries though (The White Company).

Breakfast was continental which was adequate. Had to wait a while for a pot of tea though which was a bit disappointing as eaten my croissants before it arrived!

Thank you for your review of Hotel Felix. We're pleased that you enjoyed your stay but disappointed to hear your comments regarding the bathroom. These comments have been passed to housekeeping to look into and will certainly be taken seriously. I'm also sorry to hear about the delay with your tea which should have been served to you quickly - I will also pass this on to the restaurant.

Overall it's great to hear that you had a good stay with us and we hope you choose to return to Hotel Felix in the future.
