Spent two nights here on a cold, wet, weekend in May. I have stayed here a few times and it is as good as ever with really comfy beds and a fab bathroom with lots of goodies. it's really nice to have real milk in the mini bar instead of the yukky UHT stuff. Breakfast was super with lots of choice. The hotel staff are friendly and efficient. Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: All the rooms that I have had were good.

Glad to know that you had another relaxing stay at Hotel Felix Julie and thank you so much for your positive feedback. Sorry that you didn’t have good weather. Whilst our garden and terrace lend themselves perfectly to al fresco dining when the sun shines, the light and airy Orangery is a nice place to relax with a cup of tea or coffee when the weather isn’t so good.

Pleased that you enjoyed the fresh milk that we put in our rooms. This was a conscious decision that we made a while ago. After all, who wants to taint their tea with UHT!

This is an old house with multiple extensions on the outskirts of Cambridge. Bedrooms in the original house and in multiple extensions around t. Not architecturally outstanding. Food okay. Comprehensive English breakfast; fresh toast on request, just not outstanding. Boeuf Bourguinion at lunchtime was good, but not special. Service quite good and staff very pleasant.

Thank you for your review. Our hotel is a beautiful listed Victorian Villa, which we have furnished to a high standard, incorporating contemporary style and comfort.

We are highly flexible with regard to breakfast, as not all of our guests necessarily want the same thing. Therefore, we allow each person to let us know exactly what they would like. Glad that you enjoyed lunch and that our staff looked after you.

My wife and I stayed at the Felix last September and had a great time the room was brilliant even down to the television at the end lof the bath, very tastefully decorated and laid out. We ate in the Graffiti restuarant as it was a celebration. What a night the food was great. We took friends back this weekend for a meal at the restuarant. the standard was still as good superb food and wine.

As a young couple (21+22) we have never stayed somewhere this luxurious. We decided to spend more than usual as it was our anniversary of 5 years. The price is high due to it being located in such a popular city. We paid £130 for one night with continental breakfast in the morning (this was a non-refundable advanced booking).

The room was lovely, however i did think it was going to be a little bigger, but i wasn't dissapointed (maybe i just thought this because of the price!). The bathroom floor was tiled and HEATED! I loved this, i woke up twice in the night and both times thought i would have to walk on a cold tiled floor, but no! The bed was huge, it felt like i had a double to myself, the pillows were really comfy and overall we both had a really good nights sleep.

The staff were very helpful, when we arrived to check in we were told they offered a complimentary 'turndown' service so i replied 'ok' thinking, i'll phone my mum when we get to the room to ask what that is as i didn't want to look silly, but as i said ok she had written 'yes' on her paperwork. We then realised later that evening around 730-8 when a gentleman knocked on our door asking if we would like fresh towels and to close our curtains-this is what the turndown service was-you all probably know this anyway!

Breakfast was lovely, a continental breakfast was included in our stay. On offer was 4 types of cereal, croissants and pan au chocolat, mixed basket of toast, fresh fruit, orange juice, teas, coffees, hot chocolates etc.

A taxi ride into the centre (Bridge Street) costed us £5.80 this was only 5-7minutes i would say. To drive into town we were advised to park in Park Street car park as it was the cheapest of them all (up to 3 hours £5.20 i think after that i went up to over £8). It is ideally located, you walk out onto Bridge Street, if you turn immedicately right, you can go punting on the river for £20 (self-punt up to 6 people for this price). I think to have a tour it was £14 each. There are a few different companies that do it, as we 'punted' up the river we noticed one that did it for £14 (self punt) but there boats looked tatty, whereas we had a pretty decent one! If you turn left you will head into the centre, past the old sweet shop-which i obviously had to visit!

Overall a lovely stay, Cambridge is a beautiful city with plenty to offer, museums, punting, architecture, lovely restaurants, boutiques.

We definately reccomment the Felix Hotel, it is in a brilliant location, if you wanted to walk we were told it would be 30 minutes, it didn't look like a very exciting walk either.

If you want to be situated right in the centre, be prepared to pay for it!

Hope this review helped.

Thank you so much for your review and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Hotel Felix.

We installed underfloor heating in our bathrooms last year and get many positive comments. Much nicer, as you say, to walk on a warm floor in the middle of the night, rather than a cold one!

Next time you stay with us, which I very much hope you will, why not consider the Park and Ride service or the bus into town, which stops a short walk from the hotel. Both options are much cheaper than hiring a taxi. As you say, a walk from the hotel into central Cambridge is not far and because it is straight, you can't get lost, which is a bonus.

We work with one of the punt hire companies in Cambridge and are also able to offer guests staying at Hotel Felix discounted punt tickets (which can bill to your room). This is really flexible way of hiring a punt as there is no set time and you can use your ticket as and when you wish. Cambridge is also culturally rich and has many art galleries, interesting museums, theatres and cinemas.

Whilst Hotel Felix is not in the centre of Cambridge, it is just five minutes' drive, and on a day such as today, when it is warm and sunny, what better to escape from the hussle and bustle of the city and enjoy lunch, afternoon tea, dinner or a glass of wine al fresco on the terrace.

We look forward to welcoming you back.

Just back from a 1 night stay at the Felix. The best thing about this hotel is the staff....something which is so, so rare these days.........

Every member of the team was happy and could not do enough for you. This includes the reception team, the porter, the bar staff and all the waiting staff at both dinner and breakfast. The attention to detail was excellent. I don't think the hotel looks that impressive from the outside - my heart sank a little on arrival........BUT inside it was very nice, the gardens were gorgeous - so pretty and well looked after.

We ate at the hotel and everything was spot on - well worth the money.

Breakfast was outstanding - The highlights were - The Granola, homemade along with the 2 different fruit salads. I had a toasted bacon sandwich which was packed with bacon, the waiter even asked if I would like my bacon crispy - It's this attention to detail which makes this hotel stand out and much better than many 5 star hotels I have stayed in.

We will visit again but next time we will have the afternoon tea as for £13.50 it looked AMAZING.

We also felt the wine by the glass was very good value too. Prices started from £3.50 which is so rare - anywhere these days!

Free wi-fi in the entire hotel........this does not happen very often!

Go to the Felix and let them look after you because this is what the staff excel at.

Thank you so much for your fantastic review of Hotel Felix. As a team, we do our utmost to look after all of our guests in a personal, friendly and caring manner. It is therefore flattering to compare us as 'better' than many 5 star hotels you have stayed in.

With regard to food, not everyone likes it cooked in the same way. Some like their bacon crispy, and of course others do not. Glad that yours was cooked to perfection. Head Chef, Tom Stewart, is thrilled to know that you like his homemade granola, as so many of our guests do!

At Hotel Felix, it goes without saying that our guests will want Internet access at some point during their stay and it is therefore a service that we like to offer free of charge.

Finally, I'm glad that afternoon tea at Hotel Felix proved to be a real treat at just £13.25, so less than you thought!

We look forward very much to welcoming you in the future and thank you once again for posting a review which perfectly reflects our fabulous hotel.
