So here I am, away on business and get a little peckish after a long day in the office. Although not quite Italy, I decided to order a lasagne with salad. No shortage of iceberg lettuce here... in fact no shortage of icebergs! There was one smack back in the middle of my lasagne! Yes it was colder than an...

We stayed here just for one night stopover. We had a pleasant welcome from the friendly front desk staff. Out room was on the second floor towards the end of the corridor and far away from the elevator. We had a peaceful quiet night, no noise from the corridor or outside. The bed was very comfortable and a bit narrow...

Nice hotel for a quick overnight stay, clean and close to the park and ride at Newmarket road. Next to Cambrodge air port but no noise pollution at all. Lovely clean room, 133. Breakfast good and hot. But no bacon? Not sure why as they advertise a Cooked breakfast buffet. Otherwise staff friendly and a lovely sleep.

You know what you're getting with the bigger hotels. A little out of town but was clean, comfortable, quiet and reasonably priced. Friendly staff. No bacon at breakfast....very disappointing particularly after a couple of heavy nights visiting numerous high quality Cambridge pubs!
