A grand hotel in the heart of Cambridge Jun 24, 2011
I stayed at this hotel a few years ago on one of my many visits to the city to see friends. I decided on this hotel as a bit of luxury compared with the local travelodges!

The hotel itself looks very grandiose! The front of the hotel is an interesting amalagamation of old and new. It has four pillars at the front making it look like a modern day stately home.

There is a concierge at the door for your needs and then on entrance you have to take the escalator or steps to reception. I don't think I've ever been to any other hotel with a similar layout! At the top of the stairs there is reception and I thought they were quite helpful!

I found nothing wrong with the room and it all looked very modern! I'm not very panickety with rooms though as the main reason I get hotels is for location and I'm only there to sleep!

I didn't have food here as there is not a lot of point! The hotel is surrounded by lots of restaurants so you have a wide choice to choose from! They are also undoubtedly cheaper than the hotel too so it definitely makes sense!

The hotel is also in really close proximity to the city's many shops and also very close to the river and university! I haven't been myself but punting on the river is meant to be a good day out!

All in all, the location of this hotel is the best thing about it! It is close to various sights and things to do, and is also close to the coach station! The downside is that the local train station is quite a long walk, but that can be overcome with a taxi as the fare is quite cheap!

Good, but not very good Jul 06, 2010
Chose this hotel because it was one of two in the actual city, however apart from it's location there is not much to recommend it. Wifi is expensive (£17 for 3 days), despite there being a bunch of hotspots in the city itself, and staff are courteous, but in no way friendly. However, the beds are ridicously comfy and very spacious, and there was a TV in my room. The water in the shower/bath is temperamental at best. There was no fresh air or privacy in my room on account of the window facing out into the lobby, however the air conditioning was very pleasant. All in all, I'd stay there again but only because of the great location.
