That the roof terrace was not open
Great location, Great staff, fantastic hospitality and attention to detail.
It was in Central Cambridge
Room faced an office block separated by a 5 meter courtyard and all the workers could see the wrinkles on my face . I had to shimmy down the side of the bed sideways to get into bed and kept catching my shin on the corner of the bed frame .Room was very small . I have a bigger bedroom !
hip and trendy hotel in the heart of Cambridge with lovely view of the city spires from the top floors, great restaurant, friendly and helpful staff, all over excellent experience.
Difficult to drive to.
I loved the spa and the staff were very friendly and helpful
The doorman was very charming as were all the staff and the room was lovely and spacious. Very quiet and great location.
No bad experiences.
Every member of staff are friendly and extremely helpful. We loved our room and will definitely stay each time we visit Cambridge to drop and pick up our son.
Room facilities and comfort, hotel location, friendly staff
Room 111, modern and very classy, huge bathroom, comfy bed in a huge bedroom, huge TV, quick and easy to connect to WiFi, so close to town/colleges/restaurants/pubs, great restaurant attached to hotel, wonderful spa attached to hotel, valet parking a nice addition to services offered
Location pretty central Gym next door pretty good
Tiniest bedroom in a hotel ever. Breakfast finished too early at the weekend Rooms basic with no fridge 30 minute wait for an Ice bucket The hotel pretends to be far more than it is and is therefore overpriced. The duty manager was disinterested and defensive when we pointed these out.
Lovely bathroom with a huge freestanding bath!! Gorgeous!
Location is great and also nice facilities like gym and spa. Staff is superb!
Basic rooms are small and to connect with gym and spa you have to go outside first
sunset and sunrise over the Cambridge rooftops, and breakfast overlooking the river Cam. Ideal for a romantic break
Superior King Room spacious with floor to ceiling windows Fresh coffee in room Elemis toiletries Good TV and iPod dock Excellent location
Nothing but be aware boutique hotel so public areas limited
Location, the views
Great Welcome Comfortable Room Lovely Breakfast
Cosy and clean hotel. Staff very helpful and friendly.
It was not said that the parking will cost extra £19.50 per day. The breakfast selection was poor , so you had to order food from the restaurant which cost another extra £25. The room was pricey already so an extra cost was unpleasant.
The spa was just perfect, not too big, not too small. The staff throughout our whole visit were very helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and the lovely doorman answered all our questions on local knowledge. Our room was immaculate and made helpful suggestions for places to visit. The food and staff in the restaurant were second to none!
Our room was a little small, we bumped our legs a few times on the bed end. A mirror above a plug and dressing table would have been most helpful, I found myself styling my hair in the wardrobe mirror which wasn't great for lighting but luckily I had packed a heat protector mat which I was able to lay on the bed.
The location makes everything in the city centre, walking distance. Valet parking. The room (4th floor) was quiet and comfortable. The Elemis bathroom products. The continental breakfast was delicious and included in the price of the room. The friendly doorman who gave us a bottle of water for the journey home.
Spa, breakfast, staff, comfort, cleanliness.
Cost slightly inflated and valet parking was an extra twenty pounds.
1) Spa facilities were great as was breakfast 2) Excellent location 3) Staff were helpful and lovely- especially the very nice gentleman in the top hat greeting us at the front door. 4) Extra touches such from staff such as providing us with water for our journey home and offering us a walking tour of the city
1) Shower- very poor for what i'd expect from a hotel 2) Water dripping from the inside of the window in the morning
