    Excellent room and breakfast.

    A wider selection of drinks in the hotel lobby would have been good.

    Excellent location close to historic centre of Cambrige with its famous colleges, Kings College Chapel and punting on the Cam.

    Breakfast room located outside the hotel itself, albeit in a building immediately adjacent. You still have to go outside to get to breakfast - annoying on cold, wet or snowy mornings.

    Great location, friendly staff, comfortable rooms. Lovely bathroom. Very enjoyable stay.

    The much trumpeted "excellent views" were a bit of a damp squib, though. We had a "Senior Fellows" room on the 2nd floor and had an excellent view directly into... the communal kitchen area of Jesus College's undergrad block, some ten yards opposite. The floor-to-ceiling glazing just left us feeling a bit exposed.
