We spent four nights at Fitzwilliams, principally to attend a wedding in their chapel. A delightful and quiet place to be based. The room was a good size and had an ensuite shower room. Yes, it is basic but comfortable, clean and has everything you...More

I stayed at Fitzwilliam while recently working in Cambridge. It was a very unpleasant experience. The staff were pleasant but not trained in hospitality. The rooms are awful, I stayed in two. Very dark and dingy with unbelievably awful en suite facilities. I was there...More

The building itself was covered with scaffold and plastic sheeting when we visited, which was a shame, but the interior is magnificent with a section somewhere to please everybody. The cafe and shop is lovely and clean and not too pricey.
