The privacy and the location was good for walking around Cambridge
The noise from the public bar when the football was on the television we could not have a normal conversation without raising our voices
Ideal location about 15/20 mins walk to town and a further 10 mins to the punting and some really good pubs ( especially the Mitre). Roast and the breakfast at the Earl of Derby was excellent and all the staff friendly and helpful.
We were in room 5 and the rubbish was collected around 7am which was very noisy so would recommend a room at the back of the car park, maybe 7 or 8 if you don't want to woken up early.
good wi-fi/ private parking. the room was in ground floor so it was easy to access the room
poor breakfast window don't open
Real English atmosphere, parking, breakfast, staff
The lock on the door, easy to lock out yourself, because your mechanical (!) key is securing the electricity, so must be kept in a holder, you can not substitute it as it was an electronical key, and you can not open the door-knob. Not practical, very uncomfortable, small investment to resolve, why not?
Very friendly and helpful staff
Hearty cooked breakfasts, but a cereal option would be good.
Good location near station. Wifi worked well. Good breakfast included. Good shower.
Over all we got what we paid for. Approx 1 mile to the centre of town a straight walk. Able to leave our car in car park for the day.
Room average, Ticked box for double bed but told we needed to explain the request for a double bed. Noisy fridge.
The staff frindliness. And the breakfast
The condition of the room and furniture. No security for the room
The staff, the beds, the bathroom, the wifi
Sticky tables in restaurant/pub (not unclean, just in need of resurfacing)
Friendly staff. It was o.k for a nights stay. The room was clean but looked a little tired.
Poor cereal choice for breakfast. Cooked breakfast was far too oily. Good hotel if you are a builder as the customers were all builders!
We liked the fact that the room was large and the room facilities were good.
The pub side of it left much to be desired, the tables were in need of refurbishing as was the décor.
bar and restaurant on site
could be very noisy with beer garden in nice weather. ood 25 min walk into centre and not much for choice around pub
Good value for money accommodation, breakfast good. Parking good.
The mess that construction workers left on staircase. This type of thing could be better managed.
Great breakfast. Comfy bed. Good location. Friendly staff.
It was too hot!! But then who could have predicted the equatorial weather conditions. Could have done with a better fan in the room though.
The Pub was nice and the staff friendly.
The room was barely habitable. It was right on top of a very busy road and, therefore, very noisy with the window open. The window had to be open because the room was so hot. The open window and a tiny fan made it just possible to sleep fitfully for the minutes when ambulances or lorries or loud pedestrians were not passing by. We left exhausted. Do not pay for a room in advance. Make sure, if you think you might like to stay here, to see the room first.
- big clean room and higienic bathroom - helpful staff - cosy atmosphere - iron, blow-drier and water heater included in a room - good working shower and more than enough towels
- would prefer one adjustable pipe with the bathroom sink, not two separate for cold and hot water
There was nothing we didn't like. No complaints.
Very comfortable beds and ample room size.
Traffic and pedestrian noise.
Comfortable spotlessly clean accommodation 20 min walk to centre and 5 min to station. Friendly helpful staff, huge breakfasts and good quality evening meals. Our room was above the bar area but we heard very little noise which stopped altogether at 11pm
great location very near to train station room facilities were comprehensive friendly staff
long walk to city center
Staff was friendly, the food was good, the coffe was good, many different brand of beers.
The toilet inside the pub was not very nice, but since every room has it's own it's not a problem.
The bed was very comfortable Tea and coffee on offer was great. The food was excellent. The Staff were very pleasant. The room had plenty of space. Room was very clean.
It wasn't very pleasant having smelly dustbins full to the brim with the lids open out side the bedroom window. It made the whole room stink by 5.am.So rising nice and early i'm afraid.
The friendliness and attention from the staff. All were good and one particular person was excellent and was very sweet and attentive to my son of 3. She made many of our evenings when we came and found biscuits in front of every of my son's teddies lined up on his bed. :)
I can't think of anything what I didn't like. Maybe only the ventilation system in the bathroom. And the situations of the room towards the road. But these were very minor.
Location, bar open until 11.30. Good breakfast included.
A little noisy with windows open.
Very noisey location tired decor
