Absolutely my favorite hotel in Peterborough.

Good for overnight stay.
Good for overnight stay. Excellent car parking included, and hotel is adjacent to railway station. Good breakfast (at extra charge). Easy walk into city centre.

This old hotel was next to railroad station so had a tendency to be noisy. There was no lift. The hotel has a worn old style feel to it but it is located well for a short visit to the city. It is a ten to fifteen minute walk to the Cathedral.

Historic Hotel in a Great Location
Convenient travel location across a small street from the Peterborough railway station. But the rooms are not air-conditioned, and so in unseasonably hot weather such as I experienced, the rooms are uncomfortably warm to the point of being stifling. Electric fans are provided, but my room was still very hot. Friendly and accommodating staff. No elevator for the upper two floors

We were told we needed to book the restaurant, we did...…….we were the only people in there. The food was below average, meal nothing like menu description, it was rectified by choosing a different meal but my wife ate alone whilst I waited for mine, not acceptable!
