            Cambridge house is a good place to stay to visit the city and is very affordable if you can live without wife. The bathroom was not ensuite but that didn't matter as the beds were comfortable and the rooms clean.

            Lovely accommodation. Comfortable size room which was neat and clean. There was a pet with the handheld shower and there was no one to report it to as they don't have a reception. There also isn't an enclosed wardrobe so clothes can look a little untidy hung on the open hanging space. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would us it again.

            I don’t think you will book hotel with no free wifi, do you ? I booked this hotel from good location. Upon our check in with the only staff at reception, hetold me that wifi costed 3 £. Hotel had no elevator, and had very small stairs. So, if you checked in with big luggages you would be struggling. During our stay, a lady locked herself out quite early in the morning, took her quote long time to find missing reception and gave her somehelp.

            Not what we expected”

            From the description on the website we booked this believing we were staying in a hotel when in fact it was more of an upmarket hostel with an obvious appeal to worldwide travellers. On arrival we were urged to leave our bags in the entrance hall and were quickly ushered in to a downstairs room to check in. The receptionist was helpful by giving us a room on the entrance floor to save us having to carry our heavy bags upstairs but this proved to be a mistake. Though we were told to keep noise to a minimum after 22:00, which we did, it seemed others did not understand and held full blown conversations in the hallway throughout the night. The doorbell sounded often and as if that wasn't enough, we were woken by someone trying to get in to our room. Despite us shouting that the room was occupied and they had the wrong one, they persistently attempted to open the door using their key. The bed was OK, not the comfiest and we had just one flimsy pillow each. We would not return.

            Op de webiste booking.com staat bovenstaande aangeschreven als hotel, maar dit blijkt niet zo te zijn. Het is vergelijkbaar met een bed&breakfast. De ligging is prima, maar de kamers zijn klein en een te hard matras en een klein 2-persoonsbed. Tevens kun je ontbijt toevoegen, maar dit kun je nuttigen bij de receptie balie. Een badkamer kun je apart boeken, maar dan moet je uit je kamer door de gang naar de badkamer lopen. Dit is niet heel prettig, want iedereen kan je zien. De wifi op de tv doet het niet dus geen mogelijkheid tot internet op de tv. De wifi zelf is prima, behalve als je foto's en video's wil doorsturen. Het personeel kan prima Engels, maar zijn 's ochtends luidruchtig. Wel prima en alles is zeer schoon.
