This was the 3rd time we have stopped at the Hotel du Vin in Cambridge and it won't be the last. The rooms are all cosy, characteristic, clean and very well equipped. The staff are all very friendly and the service is faultless. We were in Cambridge for my birthday and they kindly upgraded our room and left us a... More

Was here for a midweek two night stay and had a great time. I was warmly greeted at the front desk and had my car parked. This was £25 for this but Cambridge prices are similar to London these days and I was glad for the convenience. The room itself was immaculate. I loved the complementary fresh milk in the... More

This was our third visit to Hotel du Vin in Cambridge. It must be doing something right. We went on a Sunday night deal and it worked well. Not cheap but competitive. I have to admit we would think three times before going to the hotel in high season. However, a similar hotel quoted £400 for one night and dinner... More

This was a reasonable stay, which had its perks, but I echo some other reviewers in saying that this hotel is not good value for money. The room was very well put together, but I can't help but feeling that some of the basics were missed. It was quite chilly throughout the room, but particularly in the hallway. This is... More

Dear Wanderlust0160, Thank you for the review. I'm sincerely sorry if you felt the hotel was not good value for money.

Superb food - wonderful breakfasts, marvellous Chateaubriand etc. Interesting room with lovely ensuite down about 5 steps (!) maybe a problem for some in the night, but lovely bed, nice decor etc - just annoying all-night noise from the aircon fans (or something) which necessitated earplugs for me, a light sleeper. Quirky building, perhaps without the interesting history etc of... More

Our stay was for my husband's birthday celebration. We stayed in one of the suites. Room was lovely,especially the huge shower. We could unfortunately hear the sound of people walking around in hallways at night and early in the morning, which was disturbing but everything else was so lovely it didn't really matter. Breakfast was delicious and the hotel bar... More

Amazing food.We have chosen private dining and the Prestige menu.The service was impeccable.We had a very good time, the atmosphere was very relaxing and it was good to stay away from the noise that usually comes with dining in a restaurant,surrounded by strangers.The hotel is very beautiful and elegant.

We have stayed at several Hotels du Vin and always loved the quirky stylishness. This one is quirky in parts (not in good way) but in no way stylish. Instead it is at best depressingly corporate in many ways (especially the garden terrace rooms). Nothing individual about them. We were woken by a spinning washing machine at 7.20am, and then...

Stayed with our dog for one night. Room was dark, poorly planned, cold, smelt stale and very dated. Chipped toilet seat, flaking skirting boards, the list is endless. We paid £239 for a 2* room simply because it was the only available hotel that accommodated dogs and it was my son's graduation. Maybe we were given a grotty room because... More

Stayed in the large suite. The bed is massive!!! The room is very nice, the bathroom could with a bit of tender loving care. That is me being pickie. The hotel is well looked after and the staff was welcoming and very helpful. Breakfast was good and in a great location. Would definitely stay here again.
