"Cold"
The central heating was broken. A noisy heater fan was started when I arrived and it took over three hours to reach room temperature starting from eight celcius. That heater had to stay on for the night as it was minus four outside and usual british insulation (next to none).
The bathroom down the corridor was not heated. May have reached 14 or so by the morning through leakage from my room. The best below served a nice dinner but in a freezing cold room. You see the pattern... Read less

Hot tea was never more appreciated...

The cold. The noise.

Likes:
Very convenient for seeing the band who were playing
Dislikes:
That Scottish money was not accepted as legal tender in the bar.
Response from The Portland Arms:
Hi Ann, unfortunately this was down to inexperienced staff. It is true we do not accept Scottish or Irish £20 notes, this is simply because we have had a spike in forgeries going around Cambridge. The member of staff dealing with you should have used their discretion and i can only apologise. We will be reviewing our policy.
