Score from 757 reviews Good
A great location right in the center of Cambridge within walking distance of the town and most colleges. Good to have car parking available too. Extensive breakfast buffet available both continental and English, which was fresh and of a good quality.
Only slight negative is that none of the windows can be opened. Obviously a safety thing and in room air conditioning worked well but it was still uncomfortably hot in the dining room for example.
Great location, great bed, great breakfast.
Our room was ready when we arrived at 11am. Full breakfast was superb.
Curious that there is an escalator up from street to reception but only a lift down.
The staff were terrific. Friendly, professional, helpful without being in the least pushy. Stayed in an interior facing room, which initially were wary of - but it was blissfully quiet...and the exterior rooms don't have that much of a view anyway.
Would suggest rethinking cooked breakfast area - although plentiful and clearly freshly cooked, was not really hot. Otherwise, couldn't fault it.
The hotel was superb.
The friendliness of the staff.
The option to reserve the room without breakfast.
The attitude by one of the staff! When checked in I requested for a room with a view but was told that a city hotel never has a room with a view and if any front room will be noisy! Load of rubbish.!! I was made to feel that this was I first time in a hotel! They offered to compensate me on my next visit but never wrote the email to me.
We all loved it. Staff were so friendly and very helpful. Rooms very good. Location excellent.
Everything about it. The valet parking was a real bonus.
Location and staff Will definitely book this hotel again
Breakfast was ok, not the best - we did eat towards the end of the breakfast serving times and some food was a little unsavoury Room an ok size - would have preferred more space Don't let this put you off
Everything! Great location, great room, great price!
Location Valet parking (GBP18/night) Big hotel often has rooms even at peak dates
No character Some rooms a bit tired
Very central location, concierge car parking on site (very important if you are driving there), excellent breakfast selection. We will be back to Cambridge and will use this hotel
The rooms are being refurbished but we had non-refurbished rooms so next time we'll ask for refurbished rooms. Not cheap, but didn't expect cheap for that location.
Breakfast and Staff
Great central location. Goos breakfast buffet
Rooms generally face inner courtyard or a car park No access to fresh air though air on wax acceptable
The service was fantastic, extremely impressed with the door man/car service, nothing to much trouble. Breakfast was lovely, so much choice.
Would love to see a spa service . I would return every month to stay if they had.
Enjoyed my stay but had a nightmare finding hotel because of road entry restrictions. Had to park in Gonville Hotel car park eventually and pick my car up the following morning
We have to wait for check in even after 14:00 hrs, although early check in was requested.
Location is excellent (city centre). Everything is clean. We could spend very nice time in this hotel
Modern, newly refurbished, well equipped rooms. Heating (fan) was digit and actually worked. Large beds. Large plasma TV with Sky. Two chairs and two tables to read. Detachable, modern shower. Complimentary bottles of water/tea/biscuits/bathrobes/slippers.
Rang room service for some plates and cutlery, but after waiting an hour, had to fetch these from the kitchen myself.
Staff, bed, sky, breakfast
The location was great, and the breakfast was great
Noise from the bar on Friday night was a little annoying
The rooms were clean and comfortable and the location was excellent.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Every part of the premises is very well maintained and kept very clean. Very quiet at night and the beds are very comfortable
The cost of parking is £18:00 per night which seems excessive for a hotel car park.
