About the hotel

The Golden Ball is a traditional 16th Century thatched Inn, situated in the peaceful village of Boxworth. We are just one mile from junction 28 of the A14, which is eight miles West of Cambridge and a similar distance from the market town of St Ives. The hotel annex offers 11 modern en-suite rooms, all of which offer rural views, Freeview TV, Tea/Coffee making facilities and free access to Wi-Fi throughout the property.

A full breakfast is served each morning in the restaurant. We are open daily for lunch and dinner providing a cosy and informal dining experience in the main bar or restaurant. Our a la carte menu selection is wide and varied, alongside a number of daily special dishes. We offer a comprehensive range of wines (many by the glass), three real ales, and a full bar. We look forward to welcoming you!

Exceptional food with a few accomodation issues

A brief one night's stay for our 40th anniversary.

As previous reviews have stated the rooms have thin walls and you can hear sounds from upstairs and adjacent rooms. Our television didn't work properly, the fridge didn't work (although only 2 weeks old) and the toilet didn't flush properly. The issues were looked at very promptly but not actually fixed. Having said all that the food was exceptional and the owners were really nice people who do care about your experience. Our food was prepared to order and was truly incredible quality at a good price. Overall a pleasuarble experience which I believe in time will be made even better when the rooms have been renovated.
