Not our first time at this hotel but it never fails to please. Excellent staff and in a great location. Price could be a little lower but considering the quality of the hotel and service, I would stay here again.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 October 2016

I visit Cambridge several times a year for events at my college and when the visit is in term-time they cannot put me up and a hotel is necessary. For years the hotels were very expensive, indifferent, or both. Now new hotels are springing up and existing hotels are improving beyond measure. This hotel was for years the Garden House...

Offered a breakfast - by an incompetent manager. He did not believe I would put review on Trip Advisor - but I did. Bar -average. Did not try Restaurant - put off...

From the greeting at the front door to the farewell at the front door, this hotel had everything. The room was spotless, and kept that way by the polite, friendly staff, much appreciated complimentary water every day. The atmosphere between Reception, Bar and Restaurant staff was excellent. So important in any establishment. Location was fantastic, on the River Cam, and...

This is an older hotel, but well maintained. The buffet breakfast is top rate, the bar has plenty of places to have a quite and private conversation. The hotel staff are excellent. They recently removed the in building gym, but offer access to a larger gym just across the street. This hotel has a nice patio and lawn facing the...

View from window - the bins below; Windows - filthy; Shabby and needs serious work done on certain aspects; Room is unfresh - a bit whiffy. I have just come fro Marriott in Twickenham which was great experience at a lower price;

No better than a Premier Inn or Holiday Inn and cost about 4 times as much. For £100 per person per night I expected so much more and certainly free car parking and wifi included. In fact Premier Inn rooms are bigger and beds comfier. Breakfast was good but no better than other hotels I have stayed in.

This hotel is beautifully situated in the middle of Cambridge, but because it backs onto the river, one feels at though one is in the heart of the country. Watching the students punting on the river, and riding their bicycles along the towpath was an added joy and contributed to perfect hotel stay. The staff at this DoubleTree Hilton were...
