Great place for a stay in Cambridge. Rooms were spotless, staff were very friendly and helpful. And the meals we had evening meal and breakfast were very good. Would certainly stop there again. It peaceful place to stay. All the rooms had expected requirements, and you only had to ask for extra coffee/tea for room.
