Nice new building. Limited facilities (no parking, no pool, no gym no separate bar etc) poor design of bathrooms, ghastly smell in lobby, breakfast fair - tinned rather than all fresh fruit, standard juices (not fresh). Otherwise fine, good bed and linen.

One of the best hotel we ever stayed. Everything is really modern, the room, bed, carpet are incredible. We booked the hotel at 5pm for the same night as we cancelled our trip to London and we really do not regret. We will definitely come back at this hotel when we will be in Cambridge.

Good hotel but nothing special. We stayed for the weekend and didnt really spend any time in the hotel. We didnt eat in the restaurant. Good location with no parking . Parking cost (£34) close to train station and lots of place to eat around the corner. Overall a good stay .

Bad noise insulation- could hear room next door snoring. Housekeeping woke us up despite the do not disturb sign on our door. Bad restaurant.
