Weekend away

Posted 23-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
Had a great weekend away, great service, friendly, excellent food, nice hotel with good facilities, slightly disappointed with the room, it had some spectacular spiders weds, carpet tired between bathroom and bedroom, sink was cracked and silicone tired round the edges of shower and sink, I can't vouch for other rooms. Still thoroughly recommend a stay here

Comfortable new build, no culture but no issues

Posted 22-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
Outside of Cambridge this is a new build hotel so you don't get any Cambrdige culture but it was very clean and comfortable. Very good breakfast. The fish I had was tasteless but my colleague had a burger which was very good. Easy to get to. No complaints.

Very disappointing

Posted 16-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
Not at all as advertised on website. We stayed at the Belfry last weekend and found the hotel to be very disappointing. There were two weddings going on at the hotel. We had not been advised of this prior to our stay. It was VERY noisy and the hotel lounge areas very dirty. The hotel felt very impersonal. Breakfast was disappointing. Not only was it cold and unappetising but felt like a disco as the spice girls were playing full Blast during Breakfast so that we could barely converse! Oh dear..What a shame.

Smart hotel - but very noisy due to weddings!

Posted 09-Sep-2014
Cons: There must be bedrooms that are not impacted by noise from function rooms. Surely these rooms could be allocated to independent guests?
Location: There's very little in the immediate surrounding area. You'd need transport to visit Cambridge city centre.
We chose to stay at this hotel while visiting friends in the area - the location was very convenient for us. Overall the hotel looks smart - the rooms are comfortable and clean, the public areas in good condition. It's a very large hotel, so a little impersonal and corporate, but we expected that. Our stay would have been good, had it not been for the functions that were going on at the same time. We stayed a Saturday night and there were two weddings in progress. We returned to the hotel just after 11.30 pm, and could hear very loud music, even with all the windows closed. I called Reception to ask when the music would end, but the receptionist confirmed it would stay until 1.00 am. She did however say that she would ask the DJ to turn down both the overall volume and the bass level. If the DJ did make any adjustment, sadly it was unnoticeable from our room. However I was keen to just get to bed in the hope I'd fall asleep with the din in the background. Eventually after 1.00 am I did fall asleep, only to be woken again at 1.45 am by the clean-up operation following the wedding. Furniture was being dragged around and partition walls being moved. The noise was so bad it caused vibrations for the whole room to move. The noise continued until just after 2.00 am. With my partner asleep and at that time of night I had no interest in pursuing the matter further with the hotel at the time.

lovely hotel

Posted 08-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
The rooms are a good size. The bathroom is a nice size with separate bath and shower encloser. The pool is quite small but there is a sauna/steam room for use and a jacuzzi pool. The gym is an added benefit. Breakfast was very good with a nice choice of hot or cold items on offer. Staff very friendly. We did not eat in the restaurant for dinner we went over the road to a Marstons pub, but I would not recommend this option as it as a bit of a dive and the quality of food was not good.

Enjoyable stay

Posted 29-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
A very quick, efficient a pleasant check-in. The hotel is on the outskirts of Cambridge and takes about 15/20 mins to drive into the town centre. Our room was clean and tidy and bathroom spotless. Our room (226) had a bath and separate shower cubicle and on both days we were there, we had plenty of hot water. Nice spacious king bed with crisp clean bed linen. English cooked breakfast was good and hot, with normal selection of cereals, fruit, toast etc. There was only one niggle and that was having to ask 3 times and wait over 20mins for tea and coffee on the 2nd morning we were at breakfast. We used the complementary spa facilities and had a swim (water was warm enough) Jacuzzii and steam. We ate in the restaurant one evening, had two courses which were tasty, plus 4 alcoholic -bill was about £75. It was a pleasure to have staff who appeared to be interested in their guests and it didn't feel false.
