Had to stay in Cambridge for a night waiting to be able to check into the apartment that I was staying during a scientific meeting. Thought getting a cheap option would be good since the meeting was pretty expensive. Bad idea!! The rooms are really small, smell mold, and bed is terribly uncomfortable. Especially after a 9 hour flight plus a train ride. I knew the bathroom would have to be shared; however, it was in really bad conditions. You also do not have the option for late check out.

ok for cheap room in Cambridge
The room itself was decent and clean, however it was above a noisy music club. Although I often stay alone in pub rooms for day trips, this one did not feel particularly secure. Luckily I stayed here with my boyfriend on our Easter holiday trip. I would not have been comfortable staying alone.

Overnight stop after visiting Newmarket races. Room very basic just somewhere to rest our heads. Don't recommend as gig did not finish until after 12am even though they said it would finish at 11pm,unless your staying for the gig.

Good accommodation in terms of price
Reading some of the previous reviews we weren't sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The thing to remember is that it is a pub with some rooms. Not a four star hotel. But it was clean, staff friendly, located very close to the centre of Cambridge (just a walk through a park away) and it looked like it had been newly renovated as it looked much nicer than the pictures we had seen on hotels.com. We had chosen it due to it being the cheapest option we could find in Cambridge and we were very happy with the choice. Just remember that toilets and shower are shared between the three rooms (staff kept it clean) and if you're there over a weekend the pub will very likely have a gig on. The music wasn't so loud as it bothered us in any way but if you're used to a more quite location this might not be for you. So don't stay here if you're expecting it to be a hotel but if you want decent accommodation at a reasonable price this is for you. We enjoyed our stay and would definetely stay here again.

Clean, comfortable, no frills.
On arrival asked to pay. I assumed I had paid via Hotel.com. The room was very clean and though simple was comfortable. I was not surprised by the bar noise but after closing it was quiet until the morning traffic started. This was perfectly adequate for our simgle night stopover.
