  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The hotel accommodated us at a last minute booking, as we couldn't stay longer in our current place and the bad storm over the weekend had put a damper on seeing anything of Cambridge until the rain/wind passed. It is a well-located hotel, with a comfortable room and good amenities, close to the heart of the university city. It was an easy walk to pubs and restaurants, as well as to the main college campuses. We only stayed on evening, but it was a good stay. The staff were friendly and accommodating with our luggage. Breakfast was delicious - the restaurant area is lovely. They have well-cooked food and a good selection on the cold buffet. Taxi was arranged easily to take us back to the train station. Overall, a warm, cozy night's stay in a gorgeous city.

    I have stayed a few times now, great views over the park and great location. This time I had some perishables as Christmas presents and the staff stored them in the large fridge for me, great service!

    Very helpful and friendly staff who ever we encountered. (we were guests staying for two days one day to attend a wedding) Extremely clean accomodation. Comfortable bed. Sorry that the bentleys were unavailable as it was my birthday weekend and i would have loved to have experienced the tour. Note. Wifi signal not good. Would definately return. Fabulous hotel!

    • Liked: Cleanliness
    • Disliked: Staff & service

    Advertised as posh and high-end, but in fact quite ordinary. It has a great location but no valet parking, and actually barely any parking at all. I prepaid a premium king room, but when I needed twin beds they downgraded the room without any reduction in the price. The reception is too small and the staffing too thin for prompt service. Both check in and check out required waiting around as the only staff person seemed to been constantly on the phone. Still a good choice in Cambridge, but not true to the advertised image.
