We stayed here on Sunday night, rooms were clean but very strangely decorated and furniture is silver! Tap in the bathroom is too powerful for the sink and when on sprayed all over you. The main complaint is breakfast I booked thinking breakfast was included but it was only the continental breakfast which was included which was just cereal (no...

The staff couldnt have been more helpful. the room was lovely (would have been good to have some hangers in the wardrobe), bed very comfortable. We had continental breakfast which was served very efficiently... if being picky it would have been good to have been offered either croissants or danish pastry as alternative to toast, but with fruit, cereal, yoghurt...

This hotel has a very impressive website which conveys an impression that is far from the reality. I chose it because it was close to the railways station and you can walk into the centre easily or get a bus. These are definite plus points. The rooms are quirky and some are very small but that is made clear and...

There's a lot of negative feedback about this hotel, but it totally depends what you are looking for. We stayed two nights to rest our heads after a weekend at the races and both nights we slept very well in the comfy king size bed. The hotel itself is very much in need of a lick of paint. It's worn...

Stayed here Friday night as I was visiting Cambridge for my son's 26 th birthday. Staff efficient, courteous and pleasant. My room (No.2)was described as a double compact....yes got that right VERY compact and in particular the ensuite!! If you're large this will be uncomfortable. You'll be hitting into everything. This should be a single room. We would have struggled...

I suppose my expectations were not aligned with reality. On the plus side the bed was comfortable, the staff approachable, friendly and helpful and it was not expensive, especially for Cambridge. Also a great location, just round the corner from the station and 3 minutes from the bus into the centre. As a "niggle" there was a missing light bulb...

The Web pictures show beautifully renovated spacious rooms, but my single was the size of a walk-in closet. The digital TV didn't work, the water in the sink was frigid, and there was no dresser for my clothes. The one good thing is that is was clean. Next time I'm in Cambridge I'll use the brand-new Ibis next to the...

I feel as though booking.com should be complained to for giving this place 4*s. It's awful. We went for breakfast which I had selected as an option. It was terrible, awful selection and no cooked breakfast which is very strange for a Bnb. Don't go here.

Before booking Fenners Hotel, we checked the website and read some TripAdvisor feedback. The hotel looked inviting for a short city break. However, we did not like our room no. 3. We thought that it had really gotten worn and would rather urgently need refurbishment (the walls and the ceiling showed quite some stains, curtains were damaged, shower cabin showed...

website does not accurately reflect the hotel. room was tiny and in need of TLC (shabby to be honest). shower needed a good clean. had to pay a £15 extra to park which is not advertised on the hotel website. hotel staff unhelpful. overpriced.
