More like a hostel:not a hotel

The hostel is very well located right in the centre of Cambridge. It is a rabbit warren of rooms and we had to climb about six flights of stairs to get to our room. I had not realised that there was no ensuite bathroom and all the rooms shared just two bathrooms. There was no water in our room and no hairdryer. The bedding looked tired. The common parts were rather shabby. Some guests in the room next to us cleared there throats noisily. We were there in a heatwave and being just under the eaves the room felt hot. There was certainly no air conditioning. It reminded me of my student travels in India. I must check more carefully next time I book somewhere!

4/5 Good

very central, convenient .

this hotel is just a few moments from shops and restaurants. historic cambridge and the river cam being just down the road.

Pros: the location is very central with shops and shopping mall just down the road. the river cam is just down the road as is historic cambridge.

Cons: the toilet and bathroom are shared by other guests and not en suite.

Location: the location seems to be five minutes from most of every thing.

Stayed 2 nights in Dec 2017


Outdated boarding house above a bar.

B&B without the breakfast. The barman checked us in. No one to check us out until bar opened at 11am so we had to find cleaning lady to store our luggage. Bare essentials: bed (bad mattress), towel, shared bath (updated, clean). We were on top floor (3) with only one way out; this was very unsettling. No a/c, hot night, had to keep only window open which is above entrance to the bar so very noisy until 1 am then the delivery truck noise started about 6 am.

Pros: Good location for Cambridge University.
