Fanastic Location - Lovely Views
Posted Aug 29, 2016 on Hotels
3 friends and I chose this hotel to stay in for the weekend. I paid for the rooms with balcony views over the River Cam which was lovely.Check-in was fine. We did get our cookies but two friends have nut allergies and they had no alternatives which was a little sad for them. I know in some Doubletree Hiltons they do offer an alternative. The receptionist did offer some fruit but it's not quite the same. On entering the room, it was clean and fresh. The bathroom was a good size with a bath and shower and all of the extras. There was a small walk-in wardrobe which was an added bonus and there were enough hangers for all my clothes which I did appreciate. Robes and slippers were there as well. Everything was well turned out. The radio was a nightmare to work and so I didn't bother in the end. I could have reported it but I had brought my own iPad anyway. The balcony was nice but the seating was far too large for the balcony and overwhelmed it which was a shame.The bed was so comfortable. Tea and coffee facilities are available. Breakfast was well worth it. I enjoyed it every morning, so many choices and they were relaxed if we took a muffin away later for afternoon tea time.The location is right near some lovely bars, the stop for the hop on, hop off bus tour and Scudamore's Punting. 10 mins walk and you're near more bars and John Lewis another 5 mins and you're in the town centre. Overall, the staff were lovely. The location is phenomenal and I would happily stay again.
