Spacious comfortable room very happy with that. Took a while to get served at the rooftop bar, but all staff were friendly. Good location. The continental breakfast was not so good unfortunately little choice. But would stay again.

Perfect Hotel
A nice Hotel right at the centre to Cambridge City Center. Great to visit Cambridge or for a family gathering. The only thing I didn't like it and it's not the hotels fault is that google maps doesn't get the directions right to the hotel. So I spend more than 20 min figuring out how to drive there.
