Having endured a recent stay at this Hotel there is nothing about it that suggests I should recommend it to others. I suspect it exists by catering for the coach party trade rather than individuals. The hotel itself is tired, really tired, the bathroom in the room we were allocated was barely usable and the pervading smell of damp unpleasant. The real problem would seem to be the staff who are unable or unwilling to engage, as is the management itself who have not responded to my correspondence regarding my stay. Do not trust the prices on their website and when booking be absolutely clear what you are getting for your money especially with regard to car-parking and breakfast. I’m no fan of writing less than positive reviews and usually just “suck it up” but in the case of Arundel House Hotel, it would be a dereliction of duty not to warn potential visitors of what might await them.

A fantastically positioned hotel offering quick access to Cambridge centre - a short walk away. Staff were friendly, in the main, but untrained. Condition of hotel is very poor. Musty smells in the room, stains on the carpet and dirty windows (cobwebs and worse). Beds were reasonably comfortable however, and we enjoyed playing with the in-built radios in the bedside cabinets - something I haven’t seen since the 80s! The carpets - threadbare in places - just also have been last fitted in the 80s - clashing swirls and colours abound. Really disappointed given how architecturally attractive the building is from the outside. Breakfast was fine - some items had languished a little too long under the heat lamps. Coffee weak and uninspiring - no Espresso machine to be seen. We booked through Booking.com and was advised not to do that in future as we also had to pay £15 for the carpark - for just a one night stay. We were told that if you book directly, it’s free. Avoid - until training and refurbishment is completed.

The plus side is that the hotel has parking, free, and is well placed to get around Cambridge. A rude receptionist chhecked us in, no eye contact and terse orders - hey we were coming out of lockdown - surely they need to be nice to customers? We were in a room at the rear of the car park, rather shabby, noisy and no wi-fi Overall not a nice stay, unlikely to stay here again

We booked a Christmas lunch, family get together for our first Christmas after the loss of our mother. Sadly no one around to greet us on arrival. When we were taken through to our table “ right at back of restaurant” not particularly festive! We had been put on two separate tables. At no point on booking, was it mentioned that we would have to be separated. Not what we wanted for a family meal. Given that all we currently hear is how badly the hospitality sector has suffered during the pandemic, you would think they might be glad of a booking for 15 people. However we didn’t feel this was the case. No wine menu until asked for. And one particular member of staff made us feel very uncomfortable. We felt like we were an inconvenience rather than customers. The food was nice but feeling rushed was not what we had gone for. Coffee was brought to the table, without asking if we might like to go back and sit in the “completely empty lounge” we had had a good time because we made the best of it. How sad to see what was once such a nice Hotel so run down. Having been customer’s for 20 year’s we won’t be going back. Very disappointed!
