We arrived late on Sunday, well after the 20.30 closing time. The staff thought ahead to call and make arrangements for us to get access, which was nice. Everyone was helpful, breakfast was excellent and served especially early on the first morning so we could get to work. Evening meals were superb. The only slight negative was that the room was booked to include breakfast, however this was continental and there was a surcharge for a cooked breakfast, which wasn’t made clear at the time of booking. Not a game changer, but personally I really dislike hidden charges.

Comfortable stay close to Cambridge and great food
conveniently located for Cambridge and Duxford Imperial war museum. Easy to find near the main road, but at the same time very quiet with plenty of parking and outside space. The bedroom was spacious and bed comfortable, however there was no hairdryer in the room and the shower curtain was too small resulting in partial flooding of the bathroom. The food served in the restaurant was wonderful and nicely presented. All the staff were very helpful, efficient and knowledgable. Would happily stay again.
