You can relax in the pleasant surroundings of the University Botanic Gardens, where you will find a huge collection of plants in a tranquil garden setting.

Shopperswill find a pleasant environment in Cambridge, for browsing in the bustling market square or discovering the many individual shops, the major stores and the excellent bookshops.Cambridge has many cosmopolitan cafes and restaurants, serving a selection of food from around the world, together with traditional English cuisine.In the evening Cambridge offers a choice oftheatres, cinemas and clubs. Classical music concerts and organ recitals take place in many of the college chapels and live music can be enjoyed in a number of pubs.

The University of Cambridgeis made up of thirty-one colleges; many of them are architectural gems, founded by Kings, Queens, bishops, noblemen and wealthy patrons. Large endowments of wealth and land allowed the colleges to employ the best architects, who created magnificent buildings, which reflect 700 years of British Heritage. The older colleges were planned in the monastic tradition, with cloisters, courts, a large dining hall and chapel.

Entrance is through a porters lodge at the gatehouse where you can find out the opening times of individual colleges. The colleges are first and foremost private places, where people live and work throughout the year. Visitors are usually welcome to walk through the courts, to visit the chapels and libraries but quietness is important. Examination time is from mid-April to late June and most colleges are closed to the public during this period.

“Perfect apartment but needs a deep spring clean, I'm afraid....”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2016

The apartment is located quite closed from city centre, a 2-min walk from supermarkets etc. The size is good for 6 people but more people can stay since there extra beds and sofa beds. It is really well equipped but it really needs an clean. The linen was really clean with a nice smell of softener. The kitchen has almost everything you need but not a good coffee maker! At first look the apartment looks clean but when we had to move pieces of furniture we found even socks!! It was very dusty!! The bathroom and shows room suffered from a really bad problem of mould!! We had to clean for server all days with bleach. Now, it is as good as new, a sign that it only needed a deep clean!! The bathtub curtain was mouldy. The ceiling painting as well! The fan to ventilate the bathroom is really noisy..... I wonder why people never use it!!! The kitchen's cupboard were full of the other tenant leftovers. Some are useful as tea it coffee but we also saw rest of a lot of sauces, bags of noodles, etc.. The apartment also has a courtyard which is very useful to dry cloths but again a deep clean is in order... Some abandoned stuffs were there. In summary, the apartment is very nice but it needs to be deeply cleaned.

Thanks for the review Anabel and it was great to meet you and your lovely family. Thanks also for your positive comments about the apartment.I'm sorry that the levels of cleanliness were not what you expected.I'm not sure why you needed to move the furniture around ,but I have reminded the cleaners of their responsibilities and have scheduled regular deep cleans.I also have to point out that during our correspondence I did offer to rectify any problems immediately .I certainly do not expect guests to clean "all days" so am guessing this was a choice.When inspected the shower curtain look as new, so I'm assuming you washed this -of course you shouldn't have had to do that.As far as the mould is concerned I wasn't able to see this on my next visit, as this had been cleaned away from the silicon -thanks!I saw a slight discolouration on the ceiling but am guessing this is because over time, the extractor fan had been turned off and therefore moisture allowed to accumulate.The discolouration has now been removed and painted over with anti damp paint.I admit the fan is noisy so I will get this checked out. As far as the food cupboard is concerned , a lot of guests find this useful.I checked that none of the food was perishable and pointed out that to you that you could use what you wanted (oil, salt ,herbs etc),or not use any of it and chuck away anything you didn't like the look of -if you felt the need. I disagree that the courtyard has "abandoned stuffs" there.Unfortunately the cleaners need to put their bucket, mop etc somewhere and leaving it in the property could lead to unwanted smells.However I think though I'll invest in an outdoor storage cupboard, so these items are out of sight. The coffee maker is an excellent idea.We do have a cafetiere as you know but yes a machine is better. I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your vacation and hope that you visit our great city again!
