    Exceptional 10.0
    Exceeded expectations
    Very comfortable, friendly service, great Cambridge location, and newly refurbished.
    Michelle, gb2 night family trip
    Very good 8.0
    Generally absolutely excellent hotel, with one exception. It offers "free wifi". In fact, the Wifi is erratic and very poor quality. It continually breaks up, with a poor signal. Needs fixing.
    gb4 night business trip
    Very good 8.0
    Small annoyances.
    Construction outside made sleep difficult in the early morning. The mattress was also exceptionally soft and left one of us with a back ache. The absence of a coffee machine in the room was also disappointing. For two days in a row housekeeping took away one of the two complimentary bath robes. I had to have a replacement brought up.
