davidmudge123 Friends getaway - 14/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

Good hotel but to far from centre Good facilities in the area of the railway station. Ideal for railway station. 30 minutes walk to centre ok when dry, but taxi if wet. public station car parking nearby at £12.50 24hours Saturday and Sunday

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Anonymous Business - 11/08/2019 AccorHotels review

I enjoyed my stay & staff was very friendly. However, I thought the rooms were really pricey for Ibis. The room wasn’t super clean (hair on bathroom floor) and the toilet leaked.

Many good features but one show stopper

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Anonymous Business - 09/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Many good features and services but one show stopper for me: no refrigerator in the room and no ice machine available to the guests. I have medication that is best to keep refrigerated. While the staff would provide ice it was a cumbersome process and they never did give me enough even when I asked specifically for at least 3/4 full bucket of ice they returned with less than 1/2 full bucket of ice (after waiting about 10 minutes). It wasn't worth going through the process again. I know mosts guests don't need it and it's a significant overhead for you. But I am a guest who does need it so I will always be staying in the Tamburlaine instead whenever possible and will only be staying in the Ibis if I can't get in to the Tamburlaine. Otherwise I like the convenience of the coffee shop / pizzeria / pub downstairs with late hours, the proximity to the train station and the taxi stand, the shop across the way and a few restaurants to choose from. I liked the breakfast. The staff was friendly. The air conditioning was superior and much appreciated. The second negative: no washcloth. Most international hotels at your level provide a washcloth for guests. All the others I stay at in the UK do. I would prefer not to have to pack my own. It's inconvenient to have to remember that I need one for this trip (and nowhere else I travel in the rest of the world on any other of my many business trips), but it is especially inconvenient at the end of the trip to have to pack a wet washcloth to take home with me without having it make a mess of my luggage and belongings. At the Ibis, I just can't wash my back or properly wash my face.

Very friendly and welcoming staff and comfortable rooms

Maggie Families - 09/08/2019 AccorHotels review

My only complaint is that when I tried to check in online, it kept trying to charge me about £60 more than it should have done. My flight was delayed and so my daughter arrived at the hotel before me. They wanted her to pay for the room but she didn’t have enough money. They did sort it out in the end but it caused a bit of stress for my daughter. The staff did try to be very helpful.

Everything you need for a short stay.

Everything about the stay was as expected. Only small issues were that the air conditioning in one of the rooms kept coming back on despite being turned off (possibly user error) and there was an extra bed in both room when it was only required in one of the rooms. Other than that the breakfast was good with lots of choice, the beds were comfy and shower was powerful.

Jordan Business - 08/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Comfortable room and quite clean, just expensive for an Ibis and a mini fridge would have been welcome at this price point.

Very comfortable, convenient for station and Cambridge city centre

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Janice B. Solo - 08/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Very comfortable. Rooms always very clean. Breakfast, buffet , lots to choose from. Lovely view from breakfast room. Watching the hustle and bustle of the Station, shops and mobile food vans. Very good location for the hotel, near to bus stops taking you to the city centre , tours of Cambridge and Addenbrookes Hospital. Station nearby. My stay was brilliant. Reception staff always welcoming, kind and knowledgeable.

Great location, very clean room, nice staff.

Lesley W. Solo - 07/08/2019 AccorHotels review

This was my first stay at an IBIS hotel and certainly won't be my last. The hotel was very convenient for station and didn't take long to walk to the centre. I stayed by myself but felt very comfortable there. Had one breakfast which was nice. Would have preferred it if the outside area could be used to 22.30 as felt 21.30 was a bit early when it was a nice warm evening.

Good stay - everything works

A little shocked at first due to the different room style and small room size. But after getting used to it happy with the different take on things and the cleanleness of the room.

Good location next to the station, trendy hotel with excellent pizza, need to replace pillows

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Debbie Families - 07/08/2019 AccorHotels review

The good - excellent location next to the train station and a short walk from the centre. Check-in was speedy and the staff member extremely lovely and welcoming. Right next to a small M&S, Sainsburys and a couple of café/places to eat. We had the pizza/beer deal in the hotel restaurant and it was very good value and the food was fabulous, we all enjoyed it. The connecting door to our two rooms was ideal for us. No traffic noise and the air conditioner was good (if a little complicated), with adjustable, directional settings. However the bad! - I didn't sleep until 4am. The main issue being the bed and pillows - way too firm, despite a thin topper on the mattress and all the pillows were awful, the protectors made for a rustling noise every time I moved. The choice of firm and soft pillows is much better and we stayed at the Premier Inn a few days later and their pillows were far superior (although their air conditioning didn't cool the room as well as the Ibis). The room was small, which was fine, however it was very difficult using the bathroom in the night without disturbing my partner. The door doesn't have a push down handle (it was rather like a cupboard door) so it was too noisy to be opened and shut. The door opened wide/outwards and the light would have been flooded into the room. If the hinges had been on the other side, the door would have shielded the light from the room when opened. We (and our family in the adjoining room) could hear drilling on and off around 10pm.

Very comfortable stay

Great buffet breakfast. Very comfortable beds. It would be handy to a small bedside table/cabinet on both sides of the bed to put in shaver,charges,medication,tablet etc..

Peter M. Business - 03/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Everything was fine, the room, facilities, breakfast and service. Just one minor point, not a complaint, but just a suggestion. Might it be possible to add radio stations to the television, as happens with other hotel chains. Sometimes, guests prefer music rather than television.
