    One of the best hotel we ever stayed. Everything is really modern, the room, bed, carpet are incredible. We booked the hotel at 5pm for the same night as we cancelled our trip to London and we really do not regret. We will definitely come back at this hotel when we will be in Cambridge.

    Very Friendly but Disappointing Afternoon Tea

    We stayed at Tamburlaine following a celebration afternoon tea. I have to say the tea was very disappointing with stale sandwiches and overlarge and dry cakes. That aside the hotel is fabulous and the staff really friendly and helpful. Upon arrival, I needed to have the bedding changed for hypoallergenic as I had forgotten to request when booking. This was done really swiftly. Beds were super comfy.

    Very comfortable stay overall. They did have a problem with hot water which can be a chilling experience in the morning but these things happen occasionally.

    The hotel is decorated beautifully, it’s very stylish and calming, and the staff are really friendly and welcoming. The bed was huge and pillowy, and the room was dark and quiet, so I had the best night sleep in ages. The breakfast was a disappointment however, with the cooked options offering little more than a typical overcooked luke-warm buffet. For the price and standard of the hotel, I expected a better meal. The shower also failed to get particularly hot, even at max temperature on the dial. The late midday checkout was great, meaning we could have a slow morning, and the afternoon cream tea we bought was excellent. There was no robe and/or slippers provided though, which is a nice touch offered by even the most standard hotel chains. I would definitely stay again though, particularly as the proximity to the station is unbeatable!
