Standards have dropped under Clayton management
Stayed many times before when it was The Tamburlaine. Now it's under the Clayton chain, service was noticeably absent and less efficient. Hardly any staff, took around 15 minutes to make 2 drinks at the bar, cocktail was so bad we sent it back, billed incorrectly. Breakfast was stone cold and no staff around to talk to. However, the beds are fabulously comfortable. TV's are still the same LG (not smart so no Netflix etc) they had 8 years ago. Bathroom was freezing cold.

New Year Break
Hotel was clean, tidy and comfortable. Located a stones throw from Cambridge Station, food was very good and a good choice for breakfast. Could make the incidentals holding a bit more clearer.

A one night city getaway. Perfect in every way from check-in (room was ready early), the gorgeous warm and comfortable room, the great staff throughout, fabulous cocktails in the bar. Would thoroughly recommend. Plan to return

Great Hotel, close to the station
Lovely new hotel, very close to the train station. Rooms very comfortable, and spacious. City Centre is a 15 min walk, but it is easy and lots to see on the way.

Stylish, but food and service could be better
This was my second stay at this hotel. Very similar experience to the first time. Stylishly decorated, pleasant rooms. Service on reception is just ok, service in the restaurant at breakfast is somewhat lacking. The staff at breakfast were pretty disinterested this time and the last time I stayed. Breakfast is buffet style and everything is luke warm. Fine for a Travelodge but a little underwhelming for here. I'd be happy to pay more for a better breakfast. The room was generally clean in the places that mattered, though less regularly used things like the old style telephone had a layer of dust on them
