About a 10 minute walk into Cambridge and close to the river. We had an en-suite room which was small but perfectly adequate and clean with good facilities. We only had an overnight stay, we ate in the pub at night which was good, breakfast also fine. Staff were friendly and our short stay was enjoyable.

My husband and I had great stay here, the location was good for those wanting to explore the Cambridge area. We had a nice room which felt very cosy and the food served here was good quality. All the staff we encountered were very friendly.

Stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting the university, the staff were all very nice and the breakfast served in the café was really good. Would definitely book to stay here again.
