Amazing breakfast! Beds were comfortable and everything worked and was clean.
The tiny room. Staff were quite abrupt with me about an early check-in but actually sorted it out for me in the end.
Friendly staff, breakfast was good, room good
The noise of disruptive wedding guests on our floor. Not the Hotel's fault though
Location and ambience
Bedroom decor needed a refresh
hot room, poor wifi and poor facilities
Good location with on site parking.
WiFi sporadic. Bacon rock hard. Fire doors banged al evening.
Have stayed here quite a few times over the last 7 years. Recently the attitude of the staff has considerably improved .. everyone seems helpful, friendly and efficient. Small lounge area great for meeting up with friends & family. Car park !!
I could not fault the housekeeping ..very clean bathroom & spotless linen however the décor in our most recent room was extremely tatty, stained & ripped wallpaper, scuffed furniture, ragged curtains. We know the benefits of this hotel it would be great if money is invested in improvements before our next visit which may not be for a few years. Don't expect a great view outside but 10 minutes down the road you can be in the Botanic Garden or the Fitzwilliam museum.
The breakfast was good.
There was no shower certain, so I had to ask for one at reception and they installed it while I ate breakfast. I wasn't advised in advance that car parking would cost extra. The wind noise kept me awake, we had one of the attic rooms and it was a windy night.
The hotel was generally very poor
situtaion to the town and good bus service.
the ambience of the hotel.
old fashioned hotel
Electric fan in the room.
Difficult to find the car park from the main road - we had to go round twice.
The location is superb and the staff were friendly and professional.
The hotel room was sub standard and obviously hasn't been touched for circa 15 years.
Hotel a bit shabby. Room was incredibly hot.
The breakfast was excellent. The bar was open 24 hours. There was a lift to the upper floors. The hotel has history and wasin the middle of the college community near the Fitz so not right in the thick of things which was a nice mix. Parking although not free was reasonable at 8 pounds per night. Bed was comfortable and room was spacious enough and at half the price of the Doubletree was worth the slightly longer walk to things like Kings and Queens.
Housekeeping was haphazard with used towels being re-folded even when following rules to replace. Coffee cups were not replaced nor used glassware removed. A broken shower adjuster made showering difficult and could not be repaired during the stay. No A/C made for a sweltering room, but this is not atypical for a UK boutique hotel and it was record heat. The addition of sheer drapes to the room darkening curtains would have given better ventilation options and a larger fan would have helped. An antiquated way of assigning Internet access required a separate code per device per day which was cumbersome. The hallway lightbulbs which were actually heatlamps made the hallways like saunas upon leaving the room or elevator.
The location to the city centre is excellent, you can leave your car and walk there within 10 minutes
No air conditioning, it was very, very hot and the fan provided was not sufficient, no ventilation in the bathroom and the rest of it was very shabby, is well past its best
Staff at Reception were helpful and friendly, although the directions they gave me to my next destination in the town were poor. The location was convenient for the real purpose of my trip to Cambridge which was to present a seminar at another hotel in the city.
Room was shabby and in need of a major refurbishment, no window locks, no net curtains and as my room was on the first floor this meant that people in buildings on the other side of the road and on passing buses could see right into my room and bathroom. Food in the restaurant was mediocre at both dinner and breakfast, and service at dinner was poor, the waiter managing to drip water all over some documents that I was reading. The entire visit to the hotel was a shambles, frankly, and very expensive for the quality of accommodation and food offered.
Location is good. It is ideal for my business needs in Cambridge.
The room was in poor condition. It needed a good clean. There were stains on the carpet and furniture. There was no air conditioning. I had stayed at the hotel two years ago and it had seriously degraded in that time interval.
It's relatively cheap (though poor value) and luckily we only had to stay one night.
For a classic hotel in a beautiful city this was a huge disappointment- rooms dirty with stained wallpaper, battered furniture, old bathroom fittings. No air-conditioning on a boiling hot summer day- we had to wedge open the window (beware the sashes don't work) with the wastepaper bin and wedged one of my husband's trainers into the room door at night to allow a bit of a breeze to circulate. The whole hotel needs to be gutted and renovated to make it fit for the present day traveller. The staff (who are very friendly) must be so embarrassed to have to stay cheerful in the face of customer disappointment.
Standard of cleanliness & attitude of staff (everyone pleasant & helpful) seem much improved .. have stayed here frequently. Good breakfast with fresh bread & fruit. Location& parking very convenient.
Furnishings old & tired ..curtains very poor & ragged.
It was a very hot night and the room had NO AIR CONDITIONING. Lavatory only flushed occasionally. The breakfast was a self-service meal and of poor quality. At the cost (£109) this was highway robbery.
Excellent location within walking distance to the city centre. Parking on site. Very happy with my room (#305). Very comfortable bed & pillows.
There was a strange hole in the ceiling over the bed. I forgot to mention it to the hotel staff when I was checking out. Otherwise the room was tidy & clean.
Horrible place, very shabby!
The helpful staff. The good food. The comfortable beds.
The hotel is in desperate need of repair and upkeep. The beds are incredibly uncomfortable and all of the facilities are old and falling apart. I will not stay here ever again.
