Great hotel
Great hotel in a central location, perfect for exploring Cambridge. The staff were friendly and the hotel is beautifully decorated. Only issue was the fire alarm going off at 7am, which was a bit of a stark wake up call, but obviously not something the hotel could have helped!

We enjoyed our stay here a great deal. I never give 'perfect' reviews because nothing is ever perfect. This was as good as it gets. We liked our room (after asking to be moved due to the fact that we didn't like the window in the first room, which was curiously very high up in the wall and the room felt dark and like a monastic cell.) The room was light and well-supplied with towels, etc. The plug in the sink didn't work - a problem we are encountering everywhere these days. Not a show-stopper. We enjoyed coming back at night to the hotel. Service was good. Bar staff were terrific.

I had stayed in the hotel last year and my stay was much better. I believe I booked a classic room but when I got there I’d been given a ‘cosy’ room which was tiny and also in the attic with no light. Not in good condition either. I phoned reception and manage to get moved to a better room however still dirt on the walls and the smell of stale cabbage when the bathroom door was shut at night. A lot of money for a room which cost £240!
