I stayed here for one night in the single ensuite room. It was ok for a night, but I'd probably try somewhere else next time. The room was fairly small - as I expected for a single room, but my gripe was that it was a bit drab and could have used a fresh coat of paint and carpet without... More

The room was very clean, good sized and great for the price that I paid, which included a lovely breakfast as well. The location is a bit far if you want to tour around Cambridge university, but for the price it is expected. It is not far from restaurants though or convenient stores/markets. I find the B&B quite charming, and... More

Three couples, two in the upstairs place out the back the other couple below us. Directions from the website were awful, but found the place and its carpark (round the back) in the end. Room was clean with four full sized single beds, one big chair, a dresser, flat screen TV and a shower/toilet room attached. Selection of tubes for... More

Hotels in Cambridge are very expensive so the Hamilton represents good value for money. There is free parking and a very pleasant 15 minute walk into the city centre. the staff were helpful, the breakfast service very efficient and the room was clean if a little worn. It's nothing special (a B&B definitely not a hotel) and I wouldn't recommend... More

We chose this hotel/B&B for its position as we wanted to walk around that part of Chesterton. A frequent bus service to Cambridge city centre passes the door or, if you like walking, it is a pleasant flat walk down a few streets, across the river and parklands into Cambridge. Our room was large, ensuite adequate, and the bed comfortable.... More

Was drawn to this 'hotel' due to it's location, the romantic setting, 4 poster bed and the complimentry glass of sparkling wine and chocolates as we had just got engaged and had booked a table at midsummer house. BUT, disappointed I was, the 4 poster bed was a mock of something that could be bought very cheaply in Argos, the... More

The Hamilton Inn was clean and quiet. Breakfast was typical "Full English". About a 15 minute walk to Cambridge sites. I think it is a good value not a place that will leave you with great memories. Parking area is big but I did at one point get blocked in. I would recommend it and world stay again.
