Excellent staff Excellent breakfast
Poor design of room No parking No view
Excellent room and breakfast.
A wider selection of drinks in the hotel lobby would have been good.
Excellent location close to historic centre of Cambrige with its famous colleges, Kings College Chapel and punting on the Cam.
Breakfast room located outside the hotel itself, albeit in a building immediately adjacent. You still have to go outside to get to breakfast - annoying on cold, wet or snowy mornings.
Great location, friendly staff, comfortable rooms. Lovely bathroom. Very enjoyable stay.
The much trumpeted "excellent views" were a bit of a damp squib, though. We had a "Senior Fellows" room on the 2nd floor and had an excellent view directly into... the communal kitchen area of Jesus College's undergrad block, some ten yards opposite. The floor-to-ceiling glazing just left us feeling a bit exposed.
Good balcony .excellent aspect on a clear day
No car park.not many tv channels.king room bed only 5 ft wide.I thought would be much wider
Varied choice for breakfast with a pleasant view out onto the river cam. Conveniently situated for the Fitzwilliam, Kettles Yard and shops.
The room was lovely and the facilities within it were fabulous. The view over Cambridge was great
Having to go outside for breakfast was odd. The lack of a hotel bar or place to meet was a bit strange too. I also think the staff serving breakfast seemed a bit amateurish. It wasn't very clear how things worked and no-one explained.
