"Just what we wanted...."
If it's a place to put your head down at a very reasonable price then the Portland is a box ticker. We travelled from Birmingham as my husband was gigging there, meaning we could roll up the stairs from the concert room, knowing his very expensive music equipment was safely locked up. We had a small room with comfy twin beds; the tea and coffee was very welcome. Clean bathroom facilities are just over the corridor and shared with two other rooms. Read less
Likes:
Pub is great, serves prosecco (always a plus point) and food. There is a snug outside courtyard with a gazebo in the style of a thatched African hut and another covered area, both with heaters.
Dislikes:
It's no frills and basic but a great price and location for Cambridge ( near the river). I have ticked yes to recommend but don't book if you are a five star diva!

It should be advised not breakfast available
Response from The Portland Arms:
Hi Jesus, we do clearly state on our website and the information we pass on to other booking agents that we offer room only. I am very sorry that your booking agent didn't make this clear to you. There are many cafe's offering breakfast in the immediate area and opening for breakfast service is something we may do in the future.

Not awful but certainly not the best. Beds were reasonable but hubby said it was uncomfortable. Unfortunately because it was a pub it was noisy took ages for me to sleep. Didn't see any staff in the morning and no breakfast which was disappointing Read less

Dislikes:
It was what it was cheap to say the least
Response from The Portland Arms:
Hi David, we are very sorry to hear you had problems getting to sleep. Our website does clearly state that we are a lively music venue pub with rooms above offering a room only basis. We price in accordance of this. There wasn't any live music on Wednesday but there was a lively football match and so the pub was quite busy, this can of course mean pub noise until closing time. We hope you enjoyed your visit to Cambridge.
