My wife and I chose this hotel to have a weekend break near to Cambridge city centre and away from our adolescents, having stayed in various Premier Inns before. We didn't want to have to drive into the city.
Having read previous reviews of this hotel:
It's not the prettiest Premier Inn we've stayed in, I grant you, but the room was prepared to usual high standards and receptionist was excellent... without prompting, she provided local maps and detailed bus information with explanations of the bus stops. Just what we needed. An issue over lack of bathroom towels on day 2 was sorted by receptionist in 2 minutes.
Price was fine using the saver deal - this is an expensive hotel if you go midweek !
I've read previous reviews the adjoining Beefeater which we dined in both nights - maybe Whitbread have paid attention to negative comments about the restaurant. We can't fault the service or food, night 1 was first weekend of school summer holidays, restaurant was packed but we received very good service. Night 2, there was a large birthday party in the restaurant which we were seated away from, same good service.
Breakfast service fine.
Room was rather hot and opening the window brought in noise from kitchen and main road.
Parking no problem.
Overall - well located for central Cambridge - good value on the saver tariff - and beats the "T.L" competition.
