    The personnel was always competent, early check-in, plus the service was personalised. I booked a deluxe king room for 2 nights and had a real good stay. The pool was very clean and I had bottled drinks in the terrace bar. The hotel was near Cambridge and independent shops thanks to its surprisingly quiet location. Also, it was easy walk to parker's piece.

    Excellent place for 2 nights. We truly enjoyed the amenities, such as heating, an individual safe and a work desk. For short-orders there was Doppleganger Burger, we found it close by.

    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.
