This is an attractive well run hotel just outside Cambridge in a quiet location . The hotel is mostly modern but built around an original house . The public rooms are attractive and the breakfast room particularly light and airy. The rooms themselves are modern but decorated in a restrained palette of creams and browns . The bedrooms are well appointed and comfortable with excellent linen and very good comfortable beds . The staff we encountered were helpful and professional and i can find no fault with a well run attractive hotel.My only minor criticism is that the continental breakfast usually included in the price could have been more varied . The actual ingredients were of top quality with excellent bread for toast for instance but perhaps some rolls , cheese and even boiled eggs would have been a welcome addition . This is however a minor quibble as i would return to this hotel whenever in Cambridge .
Please note though that if you are not travelling by car then it is a good walk down a main road to the centre

I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your recent stay at Hotel Felix and I appreciate your honest and flattering feed back. Thank you. I'm sorry, however, that breakfast did not meet your expectations. We do offer sliced Emmental, cooked ham and Milano salami on our breakfast menu, which you may have missed? With regard to location, the hotel is situated a 30 minute walk from the city centre. Alternatively, you can avoid parking fees by leaving your car at the hotel and take a bus which stops at the top of the road or a taxi. We look forward to welcoming you back when you are next in Cambridge.

The website made Hotel Felix seem funky and cool. However, it is a very long walk from town and seems more like a chain hotel geared to weddings than the luxurious and unique experience described in its publicity. Our room is very nice but the hotel could be anywhere.

Room Tip: Check the map and decide whether you want to be so far away from Cambridge. The fact that there 's a Traveller 's Lodge across the road says all.

I am surprised to read your review following your recent stay. We don't claim to be 'funky and cool', rather stylish, relaxed and unpretentious. Hotel Felix is a boutique four star hotel. The building comprises a beautiful Victorian villa, which retains much of its original Victorian features. The restaurant is a fusion of the contemporary and the old, and bold raspberry and purple colours blend well with the interesting collection of contemporary art which can be seen around the hotel. The Orangery is light and airy, and again has a fantastic collection of art by James R Mylne.

Hotel Felix is the antithesis of a chain hotel. Far from it in fact. It is privately-owned and as such, the owners and our General Manager have worked hard to implement a high standard of interior design and comfort and to ensure that everything we do is done the 'Felix Way', rather than what the Head Office of a chain hotel would dictate.

With regard to weddings, whilst we do host them, they are a very occasional event and certainly do not represent the main bulk of our business. If you came to stay in June, we had a small afternoon tea wedding party, most of which took place in our upstairs private rooms, so this would have had little impact on our guests.

You also mention that the 'hotel could be anywhere'. I'm afraid I don't understand this comment. To be fair, any hotel could be anywhere. Not every hotel in Cambridge, the majority being chain, is located in the beautiful and tranquil country house setting which Hotel Felix enjoys. Nor do they necessarily offer spacious landscaped gardens, a country house setting just five minutes' drive from the city centre, plenty of free parking and WiFi for guests and outstanding customer service, of which we are immensely proud, and for which we receive frequent and consistent feedback from our guests.

We loved staying here as it was great for our dog. The room we had was on the ground floor so easy access for the dog. Large bed and lots of cupboards in the room plush fresh milk in the fridge. Modern Bathroom with walk in shower. Large garden for the dog to wander round and a fantastic off road walk on public footpaths that starts just outside the hotels gates.
We didn't eat in the restaurant but service at breakfast was very efficient. The only thing we would have changed about our stay would have been not having to pay extra if you wanted a cooked breakfast.

I'm delighted that you and your dog had a pleasant stay at Hotel Felix. Our ground floor bedrooms and the peaceful setting is perfect for four legged friends isn't it, with spacious grounds and public footpaths very nearby for walks..

We had one night dinner bed and breakfast.

Excellent room, excellent food and excellent service.

Our only criticism was that cooked items at breakfast were extras. For the price I would expect it to be included.

Highly recommend it. Also recommend the chocolate coated strawberries.

I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your recent stay at Hotel Felix and that you found everything 'excellent'! The chocolate coated strawberries are divine aren't they and very popular at this time of the year. I apologise for the fact that cooked breakfast is not included in our breakfast, but it is available for a supplement for those guests wishing to order it.

Me and my partner stayed in the Felix hotel over the weekend last week. We received outstanding service from all staff. The room was very clean and we were provided with all toiletries, clean towels, iron/board etc. We was very pleased with the wifi as it was free and very fast. Overall it was perfect. We will be a returning customer and will recommend to family and friends.
