Perfect time in Cambridge
Every part of our trip was exceptional. From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't do anymore for us. They opened the door, helped with our bags, valeted our car and stored our bikes. It was definitely the best customer experience we have ever had. The room and the spa was incredible, we even had a yoga session. It was located right in the centre of Cambridge which made everything so accessible.
