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.

"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
Likes:
Hot tea was never more appreciated...
Dislikes:
The cold. The noise.

Likes:
We attended an event at the Portland Arms and we didn't have to worry about booking a taxi to take us back to a hotel as we just had to go up a set of stairs to our room.
Dislikes:
Only complaint was that the shower could have been a bit more powerful.

"Adequate for an overnight stay or weekend"
Reception on arrival somewhat peculiar, later more friendly and helpful, once introduced. Due to the age of the building, one could notice if other rooms were occupied or not - though this did not bother me. Read less
Likes:
The quality of the bedding and matrass, quite a lot of different beers and lager available in the pub.TV and free WiFi available.
Dislikes:
Price for the overnight stay (on the Saturday, with one or more events nearby - Flying Legends, Duxford) was somewhat costly due to availability?
The size of the flatscreen was somewhat small.

2 other rooms filled with noisy drunk young lads. Kept me up shouting and banging around and there was no staff available to tell them to be quiet. Awful night's sleep.
