Yet another pleasant stay at the hotel. Staff were welcoming and professional. The dinner menu is simple, well cooked and hot. Room as before clean and well equipped. Breakfast is a buffet with a good selection.

Excellent visit to this hotel, we stayed for two nights for a break and some Christmas shopping. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a meal in the hotel both nights, it's not an extensive menu but enough choices, the meals were very tasty and reasonably priced. Breakfast was good, as always in the express hotels, plenty...

I stayed for two nights, and for a variety of reasons I proved a challeging guest to the staff. I arrived in a very flustered state, having had difficulties finding the place. I lost my cards, my room keys. could not get a borrowed mobile phone to work and even triggered an alarm to reception in the early hours. The...

About a 10 or 15 minute drive from the station and a bit of a way out of the centre, the hotel offers excellent accommodation. It is spotlessly clean and the rooms are very comfortable with all that you need for a stay. The staff on duty were very helpful and friendly and they seemed genuinely keen that I enjoyed...

I redeemed a points night at this hotel. It's clean, beautiful. Free parking. Breakfast was better at Oxford and London locations. 10 minute drive from the city. Room has a touch of modern. Would stay there again.

A good clean hotel and good value for the money. Limited breakfast items at the buffet. If you want to be close to the city center, you will be disappointed. It is about a 20 minute drive into the city with traffic.

The staff are very nice but not enough of them. This place is handy for the airport but otherwise hopeless as it's on an industrial estate, overpriced, slow service, plastic food, cold draughty dining area, kettle didn't work, shower temp very dodgy. I wouldn't come again.

Reviewed 26 October 2016

This hotel is a fairly basic, spotlessly clean venue. The bar and food areas are extremely ordinary - not for the romantics among you! The food is fairly limited. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. There is ample, secure parking. It is on the periphery of Cambridge and therefore not the place for those who want to be close to...
