10/10 Exceptional

Great location
Fab location by river. Did not eat in hotel as close to city. Parking is expensive but worth it to be able just to leave the car with no hassle .

Table move
Asked to move table as said umbrella table reserved for food. This was Monday 3pm not busy. We moved as requested to a table with no umbrella and wood seats.We had been paying guests as all the wedding party stayed with you. A couple then sat at the umbrella table with just drinks. We were a party of 11 at that point. Not a way to treat guests. Futher my son rang and emailed re possible catering for the wedding but no reply even to say not possible. Really poor service. Doesn’t reflect well on you

Good hotel couple of negatives
Overall nice hotel my second time staying a couple of negatives the car park (if you can get a space ) is £21 the breakfast at £15 per person. I’d expect it to be a high standard but unfortunately on both stays it was cold especially the eggs - at a high priced room it should definitely be complementary - comfortable rooms with a great view and nice beds - the staff are so so friendly and helpful

I would not stay here again
I stayed in the room with balcony. View was beautiful, but balcony was too dirty to use. Spider webs everywhere and the chair had so much dust and fungus. Bed was comfortable and breakfast was ok. Service at the outdoor restaurant was terrible. They would not give you menu until you ask and then no one will come to take the order. I gave up on ordering and just left. Location is very convenient if you want to be close to the Cambridge campus.

Beauty is only skin deep.
Looks great, and the location is superb. However, this is a budget hotel with a facelift that defines the phrase beauty is only skin-deep. Ambitions of grandeur without insight into guests' expectations. In the afternoon, with the garden full, there was no table service. Night-time bar service was terrible, not the guy's fault, he was single-handedly trying to deal with about thirty thirsty customers, we gave up waiting at the bar after 25 minutes and went to our room. Where we found the shampoo and body wash (the kind nailed to the wall of the shower, classy!) were both empty. The corner of the rug curled up dangerously such that we tripped over it every time we moved between the bed and the door or loo, since it was in the middle of the thoroughfare. The lasting memory will be the truly awful, cheap, poorly presented, Travelodge standard breakfast. The staff were understanding and apologetic in that resigned way that implied "We know, we've heard it all before".
