Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property was very close to the restaurants and bars that I had planned to attend and was central to other Cambridge amenties. I was a little frustrated to find that the hotel car park was full on arrival, despite the fact that I arrived mid afternoon, and I had to park in the NCP car park nearby. Not ideal when carrying a heavy bag, and less so the next morning in the rain!

Lovely hotel very central to all you need in Cambridge. We had a classic king room with shower which was beautiful. The gardens and outdoor bar are very pretty. We used the wellness spa for a massage which again was lovely.
