        Individual guest reviews

        • Couple
          2.8

          Breakfast was ok

          Such an awful, awful 'b&b'. The rooms are directly above the bar/nightclub so we had to fight our way through to get up to our room, and all we heard until 3am was the bassy dj. Then an hour of everyone being chucked out, shouting and fighting in the street outside (no double glazing - you could hear every word). Then an hour of all the glass being collected in the street outside and the bar being cleaned. Tv didnt work in the room. Neither did the lamp. One of the windows didnt open so it was baking hot in there. The curtains were falling down. The shared bathrooms were dirty. Needless to say, we certainly wouldnt stay again!

        • Family with children
          8.4

          The room is nice although the bath room is shared but very clean. But if you want to go out in the morning and return before 8.30am you can not open the front door. The bar is not open. The breakfast is so late. suggest in the future reduce room rate and take off breakfast so guests do not need to wait. Not recommended for business travelers.

        • Couple
          7.8

          Great location, and very nice staff

          Shared bathroom facilities - didn't realise this when booking, but the shared bathroom was very nice

        • Family with children

          Location and cost.

          Untidy, noisy, dirty (carpets, linen), separate shower room (no bath), small. Not suitable for young children.

        • Group of friends
          3.2

          It was close to the arts theatre where we were going for evening.The breakfast was ok.

          Hotel room was dirty, bedding was smelly ! Bathrooms were dirty. Tiny kettle in room had to be put on floor to reach plug socket. No socket for bedside lamp.

          Breakfast was great!

          Only draw back is you cannot check-in until 4pm

        • Group of friends
          3.2

          Too poor!!! The worst hotel (b&b) I've ever stayed in my entire lives!!! If you can, never try to live in this hotel. The wi-fi Internet is fake, the tv can't use, the room smelly. The bed is dirty. The toilet too poor.

        • Group of friends
          5.0

          One of the windows of the room was open when we checked in and when we got back at night it turned out it was impossible to close, so we had to leave it open during the night which made it difficult to sleep as our room faced the street. When we pointed this out to the staff the next morning it turned out that they had had problems with the window before without mentioning this to us at check in. They did not offer a discount and as all of the staff seemed to be foreign youngsters working there for a month or two they didn't really seem to bothered about it.

          Well located, close to Cambridge's city center.

          Booked.net locates it below "hotels", but it is a b&B. No toilet/bath/water on the room, but up to two floors below your room. This is mentioned in room-info, but it is easy to overlook. No breakfast before 8h30. Wifi is free, but unstable (internet reachable about 30% of the time).

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          This hotel is very central,clean & friendly.The WiFi did not work in our room possibly because we were too far from the modem.It worked well in the dining area.

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          You cannot beat the location. The rooms were clean, the staff were friendly, the breakfasts were yummy and it was at a great rate.

          If staying on a Fri/Sat night you should be aware that there is loud music from the bar downstairs until 3am, so only stay here if you are a heavy sleeper or plan to be downstairs enjoying the music until the early hours :-) Our rooms were on the top floor and even from there, with ear plugs in, I could hear the bass and the people outside. I was also a little disappointed at a 4pm check in, but they did hold our luggage. There are only two bathrooms in the whole place, and not even basins in the rooms. I understand that with such a cheap rate in such a central location in one of the most expensive cities in the uk, you cannot expect everything to be perfect, so I was still impressed by the Castle, but felt readers should be aware of the realities of the place.

        • Group of friends

          Friendly staff, on arrival showed me to the room & offered help if required. Excellent location for shopping & for bars etc

          Hotel didn't have any towels!

        • Group of friends
          3.8

          We will not be staying at this b&b again! the place was run by 'kids' who didn't know what they were doing! A huge disappointment

        • Single
          4.6

          The hotel room was aweful. Tv did not work and bed linen was dirty.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          The convenient location.

          Check-in was not until 4 PM. On Friday and Saturday nights the excessively loud music in the bar did not stop until 3 AM. Breakfast is not available until 8:30 AM -- on the first morning, it was not available until after 9 AM.
