3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Amenities
Disliked: Staff & service
The staff lacked training. There was way to few staff. The breakfast staff were not happy to serve you. I went 2 days without having my room cleaned for no reason and they never got back to me why it was not done. THIS WAS NOT ACCEPTABLE. But again I believe they were just short on staff. I asked for a spa menu and was told to go and get it myself between spa customers. I tried but no person was ever there. A free service they offered was a tour around Cambridge in a Bentley however this was not ever available even though we stayed 4 nights. NO vip gold upgrade or amenities were offered as advertised but that comes down to lack of employee training. I prepaid for breakfast with their package however this was a mistake. It was the same identical buffet daily and while they offered a hot selection to order they were short staffed and it was not worth waiting. That being said the hotel had a nice bar and a lovely outdoor lawn area with chairs. Note the bar does not serve any food on Sat and Sun. They will give you a small container of mixed nuts but they are like gold and you cannot even buy another.
