Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Helpful staff’ stand out at this modern hotel, in a ‘very convenient location’ on the River Cam. The university’s presence is felt throughout: graduating categories of rooms are named after the different colleges; portraits of famed alumni gaze down at visitors. Order a cocktail on the roof terrace and enjoy ‘wonderful views’ of Jesus Green and the five spires that dominate the nearby campuses. The views are shared by the cool bedrooms, some with extra seating and a large four-poster bed. Find a classic surf and turf menu in the River Bar steakhouse and grill; in the sixth-floor brasserie, take in the shifting panoramic vista over brunch, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner. ‘Really good breakfasts’ have much choice. ‘The valet parking works well.’
