5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Sweet spot in Cambrdige.

Most convenient location. Nice room (although I really didn't spend much time in it). Good shower. Bar open as long as you want (used to be that way everywhere, but nice to see some places still honour it) Check in was relaxed and felt much smoother than many hotels I've stayed at. Definitely would go back next time I'm in Cambridge

Lovely hotel to base yourself in for a trip to Cambridge. Bonus was the 24hr restaurant in the foyer, beers and pizza at 2am, great! Room was small but functional and clean.

Bed was awful - poor mattress and pillows, I was so sore after sleeping here each night. The location was great and value decent. I liked all of the cafes and restaurants nearby and it was a 15 minute walk to city centre. Felt safe as well!
