“Beautiful location within close proximity of Cambridge amenities, 30 minutes drive from Hobbiton and 1 hour from Waitomo caves. Friendly, helpful, accommodating staff. And all brand new facilities, lovely room, bathroom and shared kitchen and TV area.” - David
“Love that this place is charity!
Really lovely friendly staff, lovely comfy beds, great configuration of space, good kitchen space, excellent shower and communal areas. You can also order take-out from Cambridge to be delivered if you don’t want to drive into town in the evening. I would stay again in an instant!”
“Loved the whole place! Loved the sport theme and the overall aim of this place. It’s very authentic in it’s branding, room layout and included facilities. Plus, the purpose of the ‘Hub’ as a meeting place for groups to cook and socialise after events is such a bonus. Will definitely book here again!” - Karen
“Extremely comfortable, clean, friendly and the facilities are fantastic. It is never easy to be away from family when on work commitments but it is certainly easier when staying in a venue like the Podium. I was particularly impressed to read that the Podium in non profit and gives back to the community. I would highly recommend it and give you guys an 11 out of 10!” - Marica
