spent one night at the double tree hilton in cambridge. very comfortable hotel with stylish comfortable rooms. very pleasant and efficient staff - most notably the concierges. lovely location scenically but a little bit in the backstreets in terms of finding your way to it. plenty of parking at an extra cost. may not be the best time to stay...

We were in Cambridge for a wedding. Although we were only there for one night, we had some extra requests which were treated with great efficiency and commendable friendly service not always present in a large chain . Very impressive service.

An overpriced hotel, which think it is a 5-star hotel. Only good thing is location as in general Cambridge suffers from lack of hotels close to center. Other than that a worn-out hotel, poor clean in rooms that charges for everything(even internet). Mini-bar with a system that charges automatically, even if you had not got close to it which means...

Good location for visiting the different Cambridge colleges; efficient and customer friendly service. Hotel may need some renovation and hence relative expensive for quality offered in terms of present condition of facilities and venue.

The title essentially says it all: a beautiful central location in a very special city and a great place to stay. Much enjoyed it' breakfasts and the restaurant were good too. Car parking fees at nearly £20 per day for residents are quite steep but considering the location perhaps not untoward

If you're afraid of heights, avoid this hotel. There is no way to get to any room without a glass walled elevator and terrifying hallways ringing a huge drop to the ground floor. Otherwise really great. Clean room, decent food, easy parking and food service

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was large and nicely decorated. The view over the river was not to be missed. Breakfast was very tasty with a large choice of hot and cold food. We will be staying here again.

Excellent hotel, city centre and quiet. Rooms comfortable. Staff friendly, efficient and professional. Superb breakfast and although we were quit late going to breakfast we were not hurried out at all. My only small concern is cost of parking adding £19.50 per day to the room cost

We have stayed at the Doubletree several times before, and we knew that the rooms were small, the corridors narrow and the street approach uninspiring. For Hilton’s premium brand, this is no longer an appealing property, as the building is showing its age and there are few facilities other than a bar, restaurant and spa. But, the position is very...
