Overall, a recommended hotel for staying in Central Cambridge.
+ Family Room is a good size (myself, my wife and our two girls)
+ Great Location - good restaurants and the sights of the City within walking distance. Nice to beside the Cam and the Punts
+ Quite. For a hotel in the middle of town, it was lovely to wake up to bird song and Fresh air
+ Staff were very pleasant and welcoming
+ For a chain hotel, interior was fresh, upmarket and modern
- If you have lots of bags, drop off at the reception before parking (car park is at the rear of the Hotel)
- If you have a room-only rate, we didn't see a nearby cafe (other than in the main part of time), so best to add breakfast to your room rate before taking breakfast (for a discount)
Could Do Better:
- As has been noted, the £17.50 per day parking fee was high, but at least it was for more than 24 hours (we could have left the car after check out if desired), and there was lots of room
- Hotel was very hot ! Needed to fling up sliding door for room. (Incidentally, thermostat is near to fridge in our room)
- Wifi charges - would be nice to at least have free Wifi in the reception/dining area.
- Hotel Pool was comparatively small and oriented towards people doing lengths (perhaps 4-5 people swimming), and generally busy (doubles as health club). (Nice view though)
