This is more like a three star hotel. Old room, bathroom was a little grotty. Very 1980s colour scheme. Breakfast was okay, not anything special. I would try to find a better hotel in Cambridge next time.

I would have expected much more for the price paid. Old-fashion TV. The telephone was not functioning properly. The bathroom was average.

This hotel is very poorly run. You see posters in the hotel advertising that if you don't get your wake-up call on time, your stay is free. But when you try to phone the front desk to place a request for said wake-up call, they simply never answer the phone. I also had a problem with the message system on my phone, & I tried to reach the front desk for 30 min & then called room service & begged them for help. Same story the next night. Never fixed message system, don't really care but un-nerving to have message light blinking & no way to recover poss message when I was assured that they would fix problem. Having a functioning front desk seems to me to be pretty basic for a hotel at this price point. Restaurant the same story: only 2 tables full but 45 min to see any food (items we chose = about 3 min prep time). Individual members of staff very nice, and even helpful, but overall, hotel sorely lacking in administrative functions. Brilliant location, though!

High quality hotel with excellent service and rooms. Located in centre of Cambridge, close to shops and bus terminals, but distant from train station (but most of Cambridge is). Wireless internet was good quality and speed.

Excellent location, you can do everything on foot! The bedroom is spacious and comfortable, but if your english is not good (like mine) the recepcionists stop smile to you at the same time! A good hotel in general, I could be back.

It was a pleasant stay. The double room was spacious and very clean. The location was excellent. A big shopping mall was just around the corner. The only down side is the concierge cheated. They colluded with taxi drivers to charge a significantly-higher-than-market rate.

Continental breakfast: good selection from buffet, but rather pricey. Full English breakfast at just £2 more would have been better value.

Our company (Brady PLC) had our Christmas party here on 11 Dec 08. No one came to Quinns bar where we had pre-dinner drinks to tell the group to move to the dining area, as had been promised. The food service was slow. The food was poor as it clearly had been standing on hot plates or similar such that it was terribly dried up! However the manager of Quinns bar deserves a mention for going beyond his duty to ensure the rest of the eveing went very well.

Very clean and well maintained. Very nice, helpful and courteous staff. Check-in was fast, efficient and very charming young lady.Nice breakfast with good, efficient service. Very punctual with parking and returning my car with bags packed inside. Good location near centre of Cambridge. Nevertheless, I thought that it was expensive for October for room-only.

A warm hotel in the heart of Cambridge with all the usual amenities that come with a 4* deal (minibar, trouser press, etc). Staff were exceptionally welcoming and made our stay even more pleasant. Breakfast and food is too pricey for what it is (e.g. £6 for a bread basket) but there are many nice restaurants just a stone throw away.
