Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Wooligans Not sure what to expect..........But...............
Not being a frequent traveller I was not at all sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised especially as I had read some not-so-good reviews about this hotel in the past. However, staff were welcoming, hotel was clean and pleasant, the air conditioning worked well and the curtains kept out any external lighting., I could not hear the trains, there was little or no noise from the corridors, the bed was comfortable the sheets well laundered and the bath towel of good size..
The breakfast was very good with hot and cold choices, no restriction on the available portion size of food and the coffee was pleasant.
The only real problem was that there was a function at the Red Lion Hotel and as I did not arrive till 8.00pm, parking was well nigh impossible and I had to use a disabled bay as the only option, or else walk a very long way which would have been most inconvenient.. If other guests had actually parked more sensibly, there would have been adequate room elsewhere, so the problem is possibly down to guest selfishness!!. Finding the actual entrance to the hotel was also tricky as I was confused by the signage for the Red Lion being much more prominent than that for the Hotel itself, but this was a minor difficulty.
All in all I would thoroughly recommend this Hotel and would certainly stay there again if visiting Cambridge or Saffron Walden.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 Good clean rooms
pity about the train line outside the window with express trains running through, and local commuter trains stopping at the station. It can make for an early wake up!
There was a funny smell in certain parts of the room, but it was clean.
Wifi was frustrating as you have to get a code for each device.
Breakfast was OK, coffee was poor.
