The b&b is in a really good location and the centre is within walking distance. There is also a bus stop just outside b&b which takes you straight to the town centre. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was lovely and our hosts were very kind.

En route from Brittany towards Northumberland, my wife and I stopped for 1 night at Avalon : everything from room to breakfast was perfect. A very friendly welcome. Good parking facilities. Nice walk along the river Cam to the historic part of the City. We enjoyed every moment of this too short stop and we recommend this B&B. We for... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay here. The entire place was very clean. Pat was very hospitable and kind, and made us breakfast every morning we were up for it (only served up to 9 on weekdays and 930 on weekends, which is too early as far as most BBs go). She offers vegetarian options which was an added... More

Cambridge does not have a single campus. The Colleges and various Departments are spread all over Cambridge. We are closest to Jesus, Magdalene, Murray Edwards, Fitzwilliam - less than a mile in distance and an easy 20 minute walk. A further 5 or 10 minutes reaches all the main central colleges. The majority of our guests book directly with us... More

We spent one night here after an overnight flight from the states. Pat was helpful and kind, she allowed us to check into our room early, by 11:00 am. Room was small but very clean! We ended up going to bed very early and there was some house noise, but rooms were quiet by 9:30 pm. Good breakfast in the... More

They pretty much provided the perfect night away from home. The breakfast was high quality, room very clean and comfortable. Everything worked and the owners have thought of everything. I recommend everyone stay here, even if you are mega rich.

Stayed here for one night in October as visiting for a family party. Very welcoming hosts, room was absolutely lovely and the en-suite was spotless. One of the most comfortable beds I've slept in away from home. Next morning, we were treated to a delicious cooked breakfast, with lots of juices, cereals and cheeses on offer too. Very impressive for... More

My wife and I had toured Europe for one month and began in England. After staying several days in London with some friends, we went to Cambridge and stayed at Avalon House. Cambridge is a beautiful town! We enjoyed our time there and Pat really added to our experience. Her helpful advice and delicious full English breakfast is something we... More

A small and very good B&B. Very attentive and helpful owners. Delicious breakfast. We had a very nice and practical room with a good shower. It's a busy city, so expect some street noise. The price is reasonable for Oxford.

Avalon is a small but lovely B & B about 10min walk into Cambridge. Our room was pine furnished with a modern ensuite shower room ( loved the froggy tiles !). Everything was clean and spotless.
