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
Good 6.0
ok, but for the price, I expect better.
No as good as last time. Front desk team not particularly friendly or welcoming. Issues with keys, asking for a late checkout, security guard who had to let me in the room was actually rude. Not as seamless or as welcoming as it should be for this price.
