Brief stay

Overnight only.Very good and convenient for central Cambridge. Quiet. However, not cheap.

Ok, unsure if I’d go back as had better.

The location was perfect, the condition and cleanliness and breakfast were all exceptional but we found the check in strange as it was not manned, we got there at peak check in time and believe the receptionist was chatting to friends outside as came running in when we called the emergency number after standing there fifteen minutes. Also we asked where the bar was as wanted a drink. Was directed to bar and when we got there was quite rudely told that they were closed. There were no opening hours to be seen and the receptionist should have shared this detail we felt. Regardless the rooms are truly lovely. From that perspective - Best we’ve had in Cambridge for price and location but something was lacking for us overall. Lovely building though!
