A very pleasant hotel - full of charm and with a very welcoming staff. Nice clean and comfy rooms. Fine facilities with good opportunities for walks, and with a very nice fitness center with swimming pool and sauna. Very fine restaurant and breakfast. Not very good sound insulation of the rooms. A little bit hard to find due to lack of adequate signs. Our GPS was a life saver!
Rolig og fredelig. Gangavstand til sentrum. Fin hage m/utsikt til mer eller mindre profesjonelle Puntere Bedre utvalg i øl i baren.
Flott designhotell med store rom og perfekt plassering i byen: Både svært sentralt og samtidig tilbaketrukket og beliggende ved en idyllisk elv. Flott med egen balkong en kan sitte og betrakte naturen på. Det eneste lille problemet med det er at innkjørselen er litt vanskelig å finne.
Beliggenhet, komfort, gode senger og hyggelig atmosfære.
Rolig fint hotell
Utsikten fra rommet, leisure club m/basseng - og innredningen ikke inkludert frokost
Easy to get to. For no reason at all, I was given a room with a disabled bathroom.
Very quite considering it was right next to A14 and the big service centre
There was an uissue over our booking request for disabled friendly room, the person on duty was excellent and helped us to sort things fantastic staff customer servvices Orinal booking request was for twin disabled room this was not reserved even though I had requested both by phone and email when booking
Receptionists very helpful. Nice to have tea/coffee making facility in room with biscuits!. Do not be conned into buying breakfast voucher you can choose what you want at the self-service which may be less than the voucher.
I was on short business trip. I would not recommend it to a friend, I would to a professional collegue Budget hotel,
Convenience , value for money , reasonably good condition of room , location next to services Being allocated a disabled persons room rather strange and bathroom took some getting used to over 3 nights. The corridors could do with a refit.I would like the ability to be able to plug a DVD player into the TV screen I note this was blocked off
Place was ok. hdtv, Wi-Fi Availability, Bed was comfortable. Overall only superficial shortcomings, and "sort-off" value for money.Room was ok. Would have appreciated a bath to compliment the shower, place had a marked odour that was nevertheless not too unpleasant, many chanells did not work, Wi-Fi was advertised but only useful if you are with bt or Orange, which is useless if you are a visitor from abroad. Bed linen was never fitted properly. Overall only superficial shortcomings, and "sort- off" value for money, but I would look somewhere else next time.

Position was good and quieter than some other areas. Having a child who did not have the full number of items for breakfast made the breakfast voucher expensive as we could have paid separately and got it cheaper for the same food.
Good value No issues
Nice big shower. Handy to A1 , Cambridge, and motorway services. No toiletries!!!! And no bathmat.
Excellent breakfast - but had to pay on top of a high room rate. Exceptionally poor value for money. Plus the back of the hotel looks onto a 7 storey research labs.
Room was fantastic loved the bathroom facilities, drinks range very good, loved the cigar facilities, decor atmosphere very sexy and romantic. The garden area could have been better and the room was too hot for me .
Service was excellent. Reception staff very accomodating. Restaurant first rate. The room was simple but beautifully presented. There were no glitches, flaws or loose fitting (rare in my limited experience of hotels). It could always be cheaper!
central location, well appointed room, reasonable restaurant poor service in restaurant which was very busy on a Friday night and understaffed
It is very difficult to find a clean and decent hotel room in Cambridge that is also quiet and serves good food. Hotel du Vin is the only one that is clean, quiet and has a decent restaurant.
Central location,good food and special Reception seemed unaware of active hotels agreed rates for b&b
Convenient situation, friendly, efficient staff & excellent shower!
The comfort of the bed, and the breakfast The view of the aircon units from the bedroom window, the fact that the room was chilled on entry on a cold and wet day - and heating took ages to work, the delay in being served tea in a chilly library , the failure to return my call to reserve a table in the bistro which meant we had to go out into the rain to find another restaurant
Well located, near to city centre and train station. Nice room, good service. Difficulty in accessing the internet service from the room
I nærheten av sentrum uten å være midt i. Resepsjonen fungerte bra og effektivt. Ikke et hotell for asmatikere eller allergikere - for varmt og for mye tepper.
Landlig, stille strøk men sentralt Nei
Hotellet ligger hyggelig plassert like i utkannten av Cambrigde. Bra med parkering Dårlig inneklima i dette hotellet, veldig varmt og en del støy. Frokosten var dårlig.
Sentralplassering, nær sentrum, park og kanal. Hyggelig betjening og restaurant. Ok rom, for min del med utsikt til parl og kanal. Noe traffikkstøy. Lite rom, men det er ganske vanlig i UK.
Ypperlig beliggenhet, god frokost, hyggelig interiør. Resepsjonspersonalet hadde en litt avmålt tone, de kunne veldig gjerne vært vennligere og mer imøtekommende. Altså; ingen feil ble gjort, men mer stemningen f.eks av at de ga oss alle tre en opplevelse av at vi var ørlite grann til bry eller litt treige i oppfattelsen hvis vi spurte om saker som for dem var opplagte.
Fresh decor, very spacious bathroom, excellent breakfast, off- street parking
Clean, friendly staff, good location
The Amabile family is quite... amiable, the English breakfast is delicious, the room is big, quiet and clean (same for the bathroom) It requires a bit of walking to get to the B&B from the station (20-25 mins, and I have a fast pace) and from the center (35 mins). Perfect, if you like jogging... a little less, if you plan on relying on buses (the stop is in front of the B&B, but on Sundays and holidays they pass once every hour).
The room was quite nice and the manager was nice. The smell from the kitchen from cooking oil.
Very freindly owner. Service was very good Nothing
A very good value for our money. The owner was kind and informative. When we requested 2 beds in each room rather than Queen/King (we were 4 friends travelling together) he happily rearranged the furniture for us.
The guy who runs The Carolina is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable with all the facilities you would expect and the breakfasts are substantial and beautifully cooked, Highly recommended!
The best thing was the coutesy and kindness of the owner.
nice hotel helpful staff
Nært til sentrum, ellers er det ikke noe spesiellt å nevne. Kjedelig hotel, men helt greit som et sted å få seg en seng. Dårlig mat. Dårlig informasjon til gjestene, "engelsk dusj"
Hurtig rep. av tekn. innstallasjon på rommet. (tett servantavløp.) Opplæring av personale i spisesalen og litt større utvalg av pålegg til frokost. Hele frokostseansen var tragisk.
Hadde bestillt og fikk oppgradert rom. Synes ikke at vi fikk noe igjen for pengene her. Fikk en veldig smal seng (130-140 cm), mens vårt vennepar som hadde samme bestilling fikk en seng på 180 bredde. Ønsker at vi iallefall får en skikkelig seng når vi bestiller oppgradert. Viktig å sove godt for å få mest mulig ut av ferien. Prøvde å ta dette opp med resepsjonist, men fikk ikke noe gjennomslag.
Ganske grei beliggenhet Tepper på badet.Støy fra gaten. Trangt/mørkt rom. Dårlig plass i frokostrommet.
Hyggelig personale. Standard bra. Wifi ok Litt tidlig med frokost slutt 0900.
Hotellet var sentralt plassert og svarte til forventningene. Dekket vårt behov ifbm et besøk til Cambridge
Very friendly staff, and internet works without any problems Some noise from the traffic
The breakfast was excellent, the staff were friendly and helpful and the facilities were attractive The room was rather dimly lit and the double bed was rather firm and uncomfortable
A double bed for single occupancy The room was generally clean but they had missed dusting lamps and skirting boards - no tea on tray
I found the staff very helpful, nothing was too much for them. The parking was great all in all a very enjoyable stay. Will come again. Everything was spot on.
Easy to find, Staff very nice, suited our purpose. Hard Bed
fast service, good decor
Bath Mat Shower Hooks / Curtain brown stained rust rings these are cheap to buy seemed a shame spoilt bathroom
Discreet, quiet and private. Excellent bar and restaurant.
Extremely noisy; unfriendly front desk staff; small rooms with outdated furniture and electronic equipment. I left 2 hours after arriving because I tought the noise level was too high. The front desk staff didn't even ask me why I was leaving or if they can do anything to help me. They just took the key ( metal, bulky) cashed the check and said good bye.
We were upgraded on the second night due to our complaints into a crown room. This just about reached 4 star standard. The receptionist who upgraded us was very friendly (the only member of the staff who was!) The hotel room we were given was a twin (we had requested a double). It was small shabby and the beds were extremely uncomfortable (broken springs and lumpy pillows). We couldn't be moved as there was no other room available, but were offered no apology or an offer to be moved the second night. The breakfast was average, the scrambled eggs runny and the service awful (we were seated, went up to get some food, came back and another couple had been put at our table - despite our bag and coat being there!). The dinner was also average. The 'gym' was dated and cramped and the changing rooms filthy.
the staff were happy to help and the facilities were very good. the room was warm and comfortable
Comfortable hotel. Nice breakfast. Staff are quite helpful once you push for information. It's a bit of a hike to the city, but there's a bus-stop directly outside and buses are frequent.
It is rather close to the centre of Cambridge (20 minutes by walk), the bus traffic is regular (use day or week rides tickets). The breakfest is really good with variety of dishes. There is no free Wi-Fi in the room, however, the price for 7 days voucher is acceptable.
Nytt og pent hotell, rent og pent må organisere lunch og bedre middagsservering, bedre utvalg på frokost, f,eks noe skinke og salami. For lang avstand til Cambridge City. Dårlig med spisesteder i nærheten. Måtte bruke mye penger på Taxi inn til byen.
Det var stille og rolig der, rent og ryddig. Hyggelig betjening. Det var mitt første, men sannsynligvis ikke siste, besøk i Cambridge. At jeg antakeligvis velger et annet hotell neste gang, har ikke med hotellet i seg selv å gjøre, for det var absolutt bra. Men ideelt sett ønsker jeg nok å bo mer sentralt. Nei, absolutt ikke! :-)
God seng, stille og rolig. Nei
This is a nice guesthouse near the railway station (2.0K). There are buses to the city centre every ten minutes on weekdays, every half an hour on Sundays. Anyway, if you don't mind walking, it takes about 55 minutes to the city centre along quite roads. If walking along major roads (there are pavements), you could do it in 45 minutes. The rooms are clean, well-maintained and comfortable. They are more spacious than rooms of other guesthouses in this category (but don't expect mega rooms). Continental breakfast offers a good choice of food (cereals, bread, toast, yoghurt, coffee / tea / orange juice, cakes, fresh fruit). And the lady of the house gives you a warm welcome and service.
Staff so kind, room in very good conditions of cleanliness. I missed a hairdryer in the room, the rest ok.
The bed was fantastic, wide as an ocean and sooooo comfortable! The standard of finish in the superior room was top class and it was a real treat to have a jacuzzi bath.
The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The room was quiet and well furnished. The continental breakfast was great and you could help yourself to as much toast and cereal as you liked.
Staff was exceptional and quite helpful. She made us feel welcome and comfortable. The light above the sink wasn't working. Or maybe I just couldn't figure out how to turn it on.
Very friendly en helpfull The heating in the bathroom could't turn down, so very hot (you can get burnt) Internet connection works only outside the room.
Very friendly couple. No extra charge for English Breakfast. A black hair in the egg.
Ground floor disabled room was very good for my elderly mother. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Teamaking facilities in the room would have been good, although it was possible to made a cup in the dining room at night.
Bur til vanleg i England, og har budd på ein del B&Bs opp gjennom åra. Må seie at dette er eit av dei betre eg har budd på. Heilt greitt soverom - ikkje noko fancy - men fungerte veldig bra. Og så var det reint, noko som ikkje er ei sjølvfølge i England. Veldig hyggelig personale som varta opp veldig bra under ein god english breakfast. Var kanskje litt langt ifrå Cambridge city center.
Hyggelig hotell/B&B i rimelig gangavstand fra Cambridge sentrum. Hyggelig betjening. Rikelig og velsmakende engelsk frokost. Rent og velstelt.
Hyggelig personale, lav pris
Hyggelig personale, rent, rolige omgivelser men sentrumsnært.
God frokost og hyggelig personale. Dusj og toalett rom burde vært større.
very lovely place to stay.
The spa and swimming pool were excellent, very relaxing I didn't like the fact that an extra 10% obligatory service charge was added to drinks and dinner, this was not made clear until payment was asked for and I felt I was being ripped off. Also we could hear the guests in the room next to us when they were only talking, not really conducive to a romantic break!
The swimming pool and the gym The room was quite old. The rate of the room: i found it too expensive and no with the quality I thought it would have
Reliable Holiday Inn standards. Friendly, helpful staff. Poor value of mediocre food in restaurant - however, no worse than most chain hotels
Staff were helpful and all appeared to enjoy their job The furniture in the public areas was looking a little threadbare, shabby and tired.
Good standard all round. I had a problem when checking in, no details of my booking on there computer system, gave them the hard copy I had from the internet booking, waited 15 minutes and they said ' We do have problems with internet bookings not showing up on our computer reservation '. Allicated my room then.
Location, ease of parking, good reception rooms Lighting in bedroom (dreadfully dim), bedlights which did not match, bathroom lighting (same), washbasin which would not hold water. Trouser press which did not work, no written details of hotel facilities in room.
easy to find. easy to walk into cambridge. clean and helpful friendly staff buffet breakfast was a bit chaotic
The hotel was efficient and in pleasant surroundings, and just off the A14
This is the second time I've stayed I like it because it's just far enough away from city centre which makes it peaceful,will go again next year if not before.
The room was excellent (I was upgraded) so was the bed and linen. The hotel food was dreadful
plenty of free parking available. Ajacent Beefeeter offering good value meals and friendly service rooms would benifit from telephone and clock/radio
Good location just off one of the main roads into Cambridge City - bus stop close by if you don't want to use car. Staff pleasant and welcoming. Speedy check in and found room to be spacious, clean and well equipped. Enjoyed breakfast and again staff friendly and efficient. Would definitely stay again when in Cambridge. Price very keen compared to many city centre hotels.
Easy to book. Standard of room for short break good. We know what to expect before we arrive, the routine is always the same. We never have any problems. I like this short, quick questionnaire. I think the rooms are overpriced. Something around £55 would be better. Yes I know you do have lower priced rooms but they are in places where few people would go for a break. That's all!
Staff extremely obliging, helpful and polite. Good location for City visit on main road with frequent buses. Excellent breakfast
Lovely staff, excellent parking, lovely room, fantastic breakfast, very comfortable stay!
It is a Pub and the real ale was very tasty the night of arrival! The room was cold and heating was functional and non existent. Breakfast was not of a good quality, overcooked bacon and eggs.
Large room with good facilities. Food excellent. Good location for colleges. Could'nt find way into pub as road layout had changed and not very obvious where to go
Good night's sleep
Room clean and well prepared - beds & pillows very comfortable - staff friendly and helpful - individually cooked breakfast. Staff at the hotel were not aware of booking made with Active Hotels but were helpful and able to find us a room. Rooms only just being compleated and some details outstanding.
The location of rooms to the main building was excellent. The weather was fantastic and opening the door to the beautiful gardens was something we never expected. The room only lacked a mirror in the room itself. Although there was one in the bathroom an additional one would have been useful.
Room was new and generally clean, staff friendly. Room full of mosquitos, tv didn't work properly (poor aerial), no decent sized bath / shower towels, breakfast not cooked properly. Workmen working - drilling and hammering throughout afternoon and morning in room next door. Staff didn't have me booked in on their own system - just a diary!, And the online bookings appeared not to tie up.
Clean and near work site Poor tv reception,leaking shower tray,no heating in bathroom, no food available in the evening despite advertised as restaurant.
Staff very cooperative and pleasant. Breakfast was good. Facilities and room were good. Room was new. 20 minutes walk from Cambridge centre. No parking problems. Tv was very cheap and poor
Very handy for the nearby Ultralase clinic.
The proximity to the centre of Cambridge (1.3 miles) the independence of the room and the excellent breakfast, very good value, not backpack or budget exactly but not far off. The dining room was very cold for breakfast
Shower was actually hot in the morning, water pressure was good Cozy enough, radiators were on long enough to get the room to a comfortable temperature in the evening. Easy walk to downtown Cambridge, walkable to Cambridge science park. No front desk, nowhere to leave luggage. Had to call to find out how to check in to an un-staffed accommodation. Room so narrow I could hold my arms out and almost touch the left and right walls at the same time. Dingy tablecloth over desk, felt like I needed to wash my hands after touching it. Wooden chair, no sofa or armchair (which wouldn't fit into such a tiny space anyway). TV about the size of a laptop.
Reasonably convenient to town, very friendly. A very good, substantial breakfast with attentive service. Proprietor was helpful and pleasant. may I suggest a little more attention to cleaning the shower/bathroom area? Areas of black mould were found on some metallic/plastic areas. Otherwise, everywhere was very clean.
A comfortable night followed by a good cooked breakfast. A very good place to stay if just visiting Cambridge for the evening.
Comfortable clean room with amazing power shower. Also very nice to be offered fruits and yoghurt for a healthier breakfast.
Wonderful breakfast. Very clean and comfortable. We had a lovely quiet room couldn't hear the traffic on the island nearby
nice people, uncomplicated smelly matresses
A good quality guest house reasonably well situated for access to the centre of Cambridge. The staff were very attentive and the room well appointed with comfortable twin beds. The breakfast was excellent. As with all Cambridge guest houses, it was overpriced. The shower/toilet while generally clean was a bit tired and needed a make-over. As Lantern House is situated just off one of the main roundabouts on the main ring road the room (at the front) was quite noisy and would be more so in the summer months with the windows open.
Nice, clean house. Bed uncomfortable. Breakfast late.
The staff was very nice and their attentions very good, Good breakfast. My room was very, very tiny. The coffee machine didn't turn on ever. The cup and the spoon I had in my room were dirty from one of the guest before!!
We were given a warm welcome and also advice on where we could go for a meal. We were pleased to be able to leave our car on the premises on the day we were leaving to enable sightseeing.
