The Golden Ball Hotel
Great stay from the off!
A warm welcome from Ruth and Guy, which extended to others in the team, Sarah and Flora especially. Comfortable and well-equipped room. I plan to return!

The Golden Ball Hotel
Rooms are fine, food best described as average. At breakfast the cook took our order with an apron that was stained with what looked like a weeks worth of use, not very appealing.

Lovely village hotel near Papworth Hospital
Stayed here as close Papworth hospital where I had a meeting early next day. The staff and service were outstanding! They were all very friendly when I arrived late and lovely during me early breakfast. Chef even prepared me a special breakfast request which was delicious. Only downfall was the shower in wet room bathroom did not drain very well resulting in me accidentally soaking whole bathroom. Overall I would recommend.
