    Beautiful hotel and friendly staff. What we found great were the bikes that can be rented for free, so you can explore Cambridge wonderfully.

    For us it was a normal hotel, the price was a bit high, so actually nothing special.

    Bath: only permanently installed shower, difficult if you only want to wash your hair for a short time!

    Very good

    The staff was friendly, helpful and always professional. Wonderful bar, beautiful garden and good breakfast. I was allowed to borrow the new bicycles for free. Great surprise. The situation is perfect.

    The room was extremely dark. The mattress was uncomfortable. The equipment for a 4 star hotel inappropriate.

    Very good

    Nice room. But all in all nothing special. They could have borrowed bicycles. The traffic in the city, however, is frightening. We'd rather walk.

    The bar was badly stocked. We were supposed to have a beer at 9:00. It took about 15 minutes for someone to get to the bar. Even after I contacted another employee.
