... a welcoming factor. Come to find out that Aaron's mother is British and has lived in London. Also found out that there is a COSTCO in London!! I was about to take the trip but they said it is far out in the countryside. There is also an equivalent of Walmart here - ASDA. Have not seen the stores but I am in the city. What I like most about this city is the EASE to get from one place to another, especially if you like walking.
I don't know how long we talked ...

Comme il faisait beau on s'est assis au bord du Cam et on a regardé passer les barques remplis de touristes. Les bachoteurs sont des étudiants de l'université et donc ils racontent l'histoire des collèges. Ça nous a fait marrer d'en entendre plusieurs dire 'mon livre préféré est la première édition de Winnie ...

We took the bus to the drummer station as usual (city center) and from here there are buses which run to the Anglessey Abbey every hour. The ride was about half an hour and we got off at the Lode cross roads bus stop and go to the abbey. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Felix Cambridge
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Felix for one night to celebrate my 26th birthday, and I would thoroughly recommend it for a short break/weekend. I booked online after stumbling across the website and thought it looked very contemporary and romantic. It certainly wasn't cheap (at £195.00 for the night), but everything was done to a high standard, from the staff (very attentive and helpful), the rooms (comfort, size, well designed, big shower head!) and easy access (five minutes outside cambridge, which is great for shopping). The restaurant, grafitti, was very atmospheric and relaxing, and again the service was very good and the food was well thought out, presented and enjoyable. The only downside would be the price of the champagne! so i would recommend taking your own and paying the £15 corkage!
We booked a two night early bird stay with Hotel Felix, as a romantic break having looked at their website and decided the hotel looked charming and intimate. If this is the kind of thing you are planning, DON'T GO to Hotel Felix!
Stayed shortly after it had opened. ditzy service, no air conditioning on a super hot night spoiled the ambience somewhat. Lovely furnishing and CD player - no DVD but not worth the rack rate of approx £150 quid a night. Better off at the Sleep Inn up the road. Which is a shame really....
Not for families
Just come back from this hotel with my husband and 3 year old. Although it has a lovely light and modern feel, it is a strangely unwelcoming place. Staff were generally indifferent. When I mentioned that my son would be joining us I felt a collective shudder run through them.
He was not allowed to join us for dinner ''We have to think of other guests and cant he just stay in the room by himself!" Hmm, this treating of children as lepers really must stop especially as we paid £158 for the priviledge and the toilet seat was broken and the cutlery in the room had not been cleaned!
Dinner at the restaurant was brasserie food - perfectly fine but overpriced.
Only go there without kids and if you have nothing better to spend your money on.
Having just returned from a fleeting visit to Hotel Felix i thought i'd add my comments.
Concrete and carparks - don't believe the hype
The Hotel Felix marketing leads one to believe that you will be escaping for the weekend to a luxury country house hotel in its own extensive landscaped grounds. Don't believe it! The central part of the hotel is a Victorian house (it has four bedrooms) and the rest i(by far the biggest part, is like an up market travel lodge. We paid £200 per night for a "premier room" that overlooked the carpark and bins and, although boutique on the inside, was more like my local shopping centre on the outside. Don't waste your money.
Poor value for money
£250 per night and it felt like we were being fleeced. The room was average, we had only two tea bags in the room, a small bag of crisps was charged at £1.75 but worst of all after being out to eat on Saturday evening, returned at 11.00 to find a noisy disco inthe adjacent room. Management were useless and told us it would stop at midnight. We sat for an hour with the walls shaking. Despite three vists to reception to complain the manager said nothing in the morning.I don't mind paying to stay somewhere good but this just felt like awful value
Expensive Travel Inn
First impressions count, when you pull into the drive & carpark it looks like you have just splashed out on an expensive Travel Inn ! When entering the hotel however there are several original works of art on the walls and the bar & restaurant look inviting. The walk through to the rooms again just didn't feel right, I was right back at the ?40 per night travel Inn. A definite roller coaster ride, as when you get to the room, it's clean, comfy and has a few luxuries. Dinner is wonderful, on the first night. The second and last time we ate in the restaurant the service was awful. We actually felt ignored and very nearly left. This ruined our stay at the hotel, the consequence of that and the travel Inn vibe means we will not be going back.
Very nice but just lacking something
Me and 'er indoors went for a minibreak just after the new year. We decided on the hotel after much deliberation and looking at this site.
It's very stylish in that boutique kind of way. We ate in the restaurant the first night which was very nice; and were recommended a great curry place(Cafe Naz) by the staff on our second( we had a craving OK)
Our room was great, the staff were very friendly and the service was very efficient. I just felt there was something a little soulless about the place.
Would I go back mmmm probably, just can't quite put my finger on waht was missing.
My boyfriend and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary together yesterday. For the past two weeks we spent many hours deliberating on where to go. We were only going for one night, so we didnt want to stray too far from our base in central london. At some point, I landed on the website for the Hotel Felix in Cambridge. I have heard many great things about Cambridge, and since it was only an hours journey out of London, we decided that this was where we would go! We hopped on the train, and in about an hour, we arrived at the Hotel Felix. The picture on the website displays an old stone mansion, however this was blocked by a huge ugly brick extension that had been added to the side.
