To get to this hotel, you take a long meandering drive out past the airport and into an industrial estate. I was somewhat concerned about what I would find, but I was pleasantly surprised.
You pass through an automatic barrier into the secure car park, and you're greeted with a very modern and new looking building. Inside, everything continues to impress.
This is a very modern, very clean, very well kept hotel. It's basic - but the staff are polite, friendly and helpful. The rooms are not massive, but are perfectly adequate and are very stylish to my rather uneducated eye! The bathroom is excellent, and the shower nice and powerful.
The reason for the 4 stars was just one thing - the main bed was very soft. I prefer a harder mattress.
Realistically, you're not going to walk to Cambridge from here. Not unless you are really keen.
I would stay here again - it's quiet and I liked it.
