    Best place to stay in Cambridge

    Love staying here. The location is perfect and the staff couldn't be more helpful. This was the smallest room we have stayed in and it did feel a bit cramped but great bathroom and super, quirky decor as usual. Suggest book early for dinner as they get really busy - we struggled to find standing space for pre-dinner drinks!! Best views in Cambridge - in fact we are staying again this weekend!!!

    Stayed 1 night in Oct 2019
