Hotels in Cambridge, UK
Ashley Hotel, Cambridge UK
One of the best hotels in Cambridge, East Anglia, regarding its hotel room prices, location as well as travellers’ feedback (average rating is 4 out of 5) seems to be Ashley Hotel on Chesterton Road, Cambridge, which is relatively close to the city centre (about 15 minute scenic walk through a big park). The average room prices per night at Ashley Hotel are about 49-79 GBP. Cosy, clean, big English breakfast, good location, with some general complaints: the reception isn’t open all day (“no staff member on duty at reception for much of the day”), no restaurant, some rooms may not have a shower, please check.
Premier Inn Cambridge (A14 J32)
The modern Premier Inn Cambridge is one of the best hotels in Cambridge, East Anglia, regarding its hotel room prices as well as travellers’ feedback (average rating is 4.5 out of 5). Although the ratings are really really good, the hotel location is quite off the city centre – and in a city like Cambridge UK where you need to walk and bike a lot (not a car friendly city) good location is a key feature we assume. The average room prices per night at Premier Inn Cambridge are about 71-95 GBP. The hotel is good value, clean, the staff is friendly, good breakfast, families, couples and business people are all usually quite satisfied with the accommodation and the services. Some of the complaints: the nearby major A road can be noisy (“we could hear the near highway even with the double glass window”), family rooms are not always big enough, hard beds, cold grey lighting.
The Varsity Hotel & Spa
The Varsity Hotel & Spa in Cambridge, UK is definitely a winner when your budget is not so tight (average hotel room prices / night are about 138 – 241 GBP. The average tourist rating of Varsity Hotel Cambridge is 4.5 out of 5, which means that this hotel and spa is currently one of the two lodgings with a 4.5 rating. No wonder, the hotel staff is really paying attention to the details: besides the usual hotel goodies and accessories, there is an ipod dock, and a free walking tour in the city of Cambridge to all hotel guests (mind you, only on Saturdays and registration is needed)
Hotel Doubletree by Hilton Cambridge

BEST WESTERN Gonville Hotel Cambridge
The BEST WESTERN Gonville Hotel in Cambridge is a lovely hotel, with good reviews (the average hotel rating in tourist reviews is 4 out of 5 – although the ratings are quite mixed suggesting an uneven quality of service, most of the negative reviews are from 2010 or earlier). The hotel is almost in the city centre, which is a big plus, just like the free parking. The average room prices per night at BEST WESTERN Gonville Hotel Cambridge are about 126 – 168 GBP. Some of the criticisms about the hotel: efficient communication with the staff can be problematic, the rooms are only heated if you are in the room (your card in the lock switches on the heating) so temperatures will get lower while you are away, some of the rooms are dark / outdated (ask for a refurbished room). The front rooms overlook the big green park (Parker’s Piece), which is nice as a sight but can be noisier with people enjoying themselves in the park in the evenings / at nights in summer time.
Hotel Felix Cambridge
The Hotel Felix Cambridge is slightly away from the city centre of Cambridge. Although most of the hotel reviews are rating Hotel Felix as ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’, in fact the ratings are quite mixed (the average rating is 4 out of 5), which shows that the hotel is good but not good enough for hotel guests. The average room prices per night at Hotel Felix Cambridge are about 122 – 227 GBP. Downsides: some of the hotel guests pointed out that there is no pool, or fitness room, or business centre in general to make the hotel an ideal stay for business travellers. Please check before booking if ‘breakfast included’ means English or continental breakfast, and if wifi is free or not.
