The room was good although the shower was not powerful. No shower gel or shampoo etc supplied, although you could request from reception. The hotel was quiet, the bed comfortable and wifi really good. The breakfast was simple, better choices of cereals would be good. Not good coffee as from a standard machine.

Great price, for a great room and great staff. About a 10 minute taxi/car journey from the punting and central Cambridge town. Breakfast could have been a bit better but it was included in the price of the room. Peaceful area away from main roads. Over all a good nights stay.

Easy to find, plenty of parking and very helpful reception staff made our arrival extremely easy. Room was clean and bright with aircon but as we had two kids, one of which was in a cot there was very little room to manoeuvre - we were warned about this on booking and weren't bothered as we didn't spend too much...

It is a well appointed hotel with all amenities except there is no where to put your suitcase so you can access it easily. Staff are very helpful. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Free fast wifi.

This hotel was fine in most respects.But it is a way out of town and on a commercial park.

I visited this hotel for the first time a few weeks ago.

This is a modern building situated next to a retail park. It is detached from Cambridge but close enough to walk to the centre of you aren't in a rush. I was a bit disappointed by the buffet breakfast (no bacon) but the room was fine and clean. Lived up to my modest expectations.
