The Charles Hotel, Cambridge
Good solid experience but missed in-room kettle with mugs for tea. Housekeeping brought a kettle but no mugs. Not having teabags was disappointing. Didn’t find out about am complimentary tea and coffee until we were leaving. If younfon’t Have kettles, you should make complimentary coffe/tea available somewhere.
