Firstly - NOTE TO ALL HOTELS (including this one) - charging anywhere for wifi in this day and age is absolutley ridiculous. If Starbucks can do it so can you.
Now to the review:
I booked 2 standard rooms here. Maybe my own fault but was quite surprised to open the door and see single beds in each room. 'standard' at every other hotel i'd been to in England was a double bed.
The single beds did not have fitted sheets, and the sheets on the bottom were too small so by the morning I had a large crumpled up mess of sheet right underneath my back. Very uncomfortable though the night
You got a choice of soft or hard pillow, but the bed was only hard.
Food in the bar/restaurant area was over priced for what it was, but good.
Walls were paper thin, could here people laughing and talking in the room next door
Rooms were clean and tidy, but very basic
Overall for the price we paid it was a bit of a rip-off considering we'd had 4 star accommodation the night before which really was 4 star, for a lower price than we paid here.
Id suggest only staying here if you cant find better. its far enough out of Cambridge to not really matter being near by - youd need a car anyway.
I would not stay here again.
