Freezing
It was freezing innthe room, no wardrobe, the bed was spacious but this was the only positive thing about the room. The reception and the services (breakfast etc) was really good.

Lovely but overpriced.
Overall a pleasant albeit basic experience. Found little to fault but similarly little to rant about. Upon arrival checkin was a little strange - headed to the bar/pub area and was greeted by a bumble of clueless new staff. Had to wait a while before being escorted to an office where I was checked in interview-style. Headed up to my room which was pleasant and clean enough (though no free fudge as stated!). All the amenities there - kettle, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, hair dryer. Nice and clean. Whittlesford has little to offer in terms of entertainment so I spent the evening enjoying the large variety of TV on offer. Breakfast was okay - standard 3 or 4 cereals, small yoghurts, fruit and a very limited selection of pastries. Cooked menu also standard fare - very overpriced so glad breakfast was included in the room rate. I'd stay again but definitely not at the rate I paid.

Shame about the room size
Mixed opinion on this hotel. Hotel itself is lovely and modern and very cosy. Food is good and reasonably priced but ruined with the chef yelling from the kitchen and banging a bell. My room was in the back end of the hotel and was very small. I am only 5" and had to duck through a door to get to my hotel room. Felt a bit like Alice in wonderland. Room very small and pokey and difficult to move around comfortably. Reception check in could be improved. Takes ages to find someone and get the paperwork sorted to check in and out.

Reasonable value
Efficient check in and out. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room small, bathroom tiny, but all very clean and nicely presented and OK for one night. Represented reasonable value for money. Very close to railway station, but noise was not a problem. Very good breakfast, pleased it was included in the price - wouldn't want to pay the price they were asking to non-residents! Also wouldn't recommend the restaurant for an evening meal, although the food was tasty enough, it was expensive for what it was.

Good but could do better.
Nice olde worlde description, chosen for vicinity to train station (convenient) and ease of getting to Cambridge (brilliant). The room was comfortable enough but too many little niggles - we had a bath instead of a shower (OK I suppose) but the shower attachment to the taps had low water pressure and was ineffective (not OK), the holder was loose on the wall, there was poor ventilation in the room and no air con (hot weekend so not good). The older members of staff were a little abrupt at times but the younger staff provided a good service. Bar prices abit expensive but overall value for money. Glad I didn't pay over the odds.
