What our guests say...

'Fabulous room, tremendous pub in Cambridge
A lovely room and delightful staff. We had a brief and highly pleasant stay.
The locally sourced fresh food at the Waterman (Pub and Coffee shop) was amazing. Their new Chef’s menu is brilliant. They have outdone themselves. Bonus: Very nicely situated in Cambridge by the river.'
'Great Place To Stay In Cambridge
Location perfect, room immaculate, decor tasteful, hospitality spot on (well done all), beds seriously comfortable, linen and pillows to die for, food very good, ambience of a traditional (albeit a little quirky) pub, friendly, accommodating and atmospheric. Room service unexpected for price and very much appreciated. Love, love this place. Def returning.'
