    Great

    excellent value for money and great staff. it was really close to saint john's punt pool. just a walk down to bull & bass restaurant, where you can have lunch. our junior suite accommodated us perfectly. it was a 4-star hotel in every way.

    Very good

    Decent sized rooms and efficient staff. The hotel was placed in the central location. Apart from that, Sedgwick Museum of Geology was 5 minutes' drive away. The restaurant had hot food.

    Great

    The welcome is worth mentioning. The staff (she was from Holland) was so friendly and helpful that it almost felt like coming home after being away. This was replicated by most of the staff I have to admit, even at breakfast.

    Honestly nothing I can think of.

    Front of house staff a little business like for my tastes. Efficient but could be more friendly. Concierge was great- very helpful. Good parking facilities. Room was good.

    Very good

    The staff were amazing - they were extremely polite and professional, on the way in and out. They answered my queries about breakfast, and arranged me a morning newspaper, without fuss. Most importantly though (and something I will remember), we overslept but no-one fussed about check-out times, over-stay charges, etc.. they just thanked us and bid us a good journey. Refreshing stuff - I wish more hotels would operate like this!

    Tiny gripes, just to help you - the bathrooms could be a bit plusher.. between the shower curtain, soap dispenser and hand rail, there was not a lot of space to shower! Also, at these room rates (we paid £150), you *really* need to offer free wifi (even Starbucks manage this, in return for a £2 coffee), and having breakfast included would have been a nice gesture too.

    Central location. Valet parking

    Overall look rather doudy. Unimaginative interior design. Bedroom rather depressing with nasty a/c smell. Fixed windows and therefore no possibility of fresh air. Poor view from bedroom window. Main entrance straight onto stairs and escalator not very welcoming

    Position, breakfast and gym

    When I booked I was assured of a non smoking room but was given a smoking room with no chance of change which meant that I had to have the window open all all the time .The hotel said it was booking .coms fault And accepted no responsibility. I will not go back again

    Friendly staff willing to help and nothing was too much trouble. Nice meal at the restaurant, again service was of a high standard. room was clean, well appointed. Late check out no problem.

    Great atmosphere situated very close to all the main siights in Cambridge. Excellent facilities and very comfortable

    Very good

    The location of the hotel was excellent, very central. The concierge staff could not have been more helpful - looking after bags after we checked out and even forwarding a bag to our next destination when it was left behind. It arrived later the same evening.

    The decor is a little tired for the price of the rooms, particularly the bathroom.

    Excellent staff, fantastic position for exploring the city of Cambridge. Special deals avaliable from reception for tourist attractions.

    The lack of tea and coffee making facilities in the room was disappointing.
