Me and my mum visited the Spa facilities earlier this week and we were blown away - it was incredible. We had a mother-daughter experience and it was worth every penny. Thank you to the wonderful team for the treatments!

The location of the Hotel is ideal for both the station and the city. The room was clean, quiet and the air con was brilliant as it was a very hot few days. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the choice at breakfast was good. We will definitely be booking again.

Stayed for two nights with a friend in two single rooms. Rooms were small but perfect for a short stay , equipped with everything you need. Just a short walk to the centre we couldn’t fault the location. Bed linen was pristine, lots of white fresh towels and complimentary toiletries. I have to say for the price we paid we weren’t expecting too much but we were pleasantly surprised that it really exceeded our expectations. Buffet breakfast included was fresh and plentiful and the girls that ran it were very friendly and gave great coffee shop and restaurant recommendations. Wouldn’t hesitate to go back or recommend to others. Excellent value for money for a centrally located Cambridge stay.

Had a comfortable overnight stay, slight noise from room above. Good continental breakfast complimentary, and pleasant helpful staff. Main problem limited car parking, however Union Road five minutes walk from hotel has FREE parking from 5pm until 9am, then 70p per half hour for up to 8 hours. Tip use Trumpington park and ride for daytime parking , or Chaucer road twenty minute walk from hotel.
