      Disadvantages

      Reasonably priced for the location

      I stayed at this hotel for one night on business. I booked through Superbreak as a Mystery Hotel for the cost of £107.50. Normally for this price I would be expecting a very nice hotel but Cambridge seems to have a dearth of reasonably priced hotels so all I was expecting was a fairly standard chain hotel.

      On arrival I was greeted in a friendly manner by the Receptionist who checked my in efficiently, noting that I had paid for B&B through Superbreak already and asked if I would like to pre-authorise a card for any extras; I chose not to use this option and so I was directed to my room.

      I headed towards the room, which I was expected to be around the corner and up the stairs, however it was a rather long walk that took me outside of the main building and into another. As a woman staying alone I would have rather have been put in the main part of the building so that I felt a bit more secure (access to the other building was not restricted to those who had a hotel key) and also so I didn't have to walk outside in the dark after dinner, which made me feel slightly vulnerable.

      On arrival in the room everything was clean and tidy, most of the standard facilities were available but although the TV had some additional channels it did not have Freeview, which I expect as standard for business hotels these days. Also my pet hate in hotels is no plug sockets near a mirror (for the essential hair straighteners!!) and no plug socket near the bed (to use laptop whilst lying on the bed) was present here. These are however some minor points.

      I used the bar restaurant as the main restaurant had an Indian buffet style meal that I didn't fancy. I had a steak, which was a little fatty in places but nicely cooked but I thought it was a bit overpriced at £18.95. The service was efficient and friendly but the tables could have done with a bit of a wipe.

      On return to the room I had a comfortable nights sleep, even though the room itself was a little on the chilly side (which the air con control didn't seem to have any effect on) and there's a choice of firmness of pillows in the hotel, which is a nice touch.

      I didn't eat breakfast at this hotel. There is a pool and gym but I didn't use these, although I walked past them and they seemed to be of a reasonable standard. Check out was quick and efficient.

      All in all a nice enough stay that could be improved with a few minor improvements.
