I booked this hotel in October and there was nobody at the premises when I arrived (8pm). I informed the B&B the day before of my arrival time and after a long 4 hour journey I had to book another hotel on the same evening. The owner charged me a 70 pounds no show fee, when I queried this by... More

Really nice bnb. Came to visit daughter who in student campus so perfect location to CB1 and the city. No fuss just good clean accomodation. The cupboard under the stairs is great for things you may have forgotten, toothbrush, shampoo etc. The breakfast is also very good and the owner will cater to your needs. The only downside is the...

I booked this B&B following the good comments on Trip Advisor. The location is great being under 5 minutes walk from the railway station which was my main reason for choosing. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was very spacious. It was not ensuite was not an issue but not really clear on the booking. B&B was very clean.... More

Our favorite part of a very warm crowded weekend in Cambridge. Host Inge is helpful and so friendly. 5 min. walk from train. 15 min. easy walk into town, far enough away to escape the crazy crowds. Breakfast cooked to order. Book through her website to get better price than through booking service. Our across-the-hall-bath was private just for us... More

This charming B&B is conveniently located, comfortable, quiet, and run by a very kind and gracious host. The continental breakfast is generous with plenty of variety. Excellent value for the price! Would definitely stay here again.

We have a family room. Beds were quite comfortable but the en suite shower room was a disaster. Tiny, the shower was only a trickle of water. The owner was very nice though. Breakfast was underwhelming and you had to pay extra for a hot breakfast (which was also underwhelming). Location is good though.

The host is so kind to let us leave our luggages before check in time. She gave us a map and showed the routes and places of interests. Send us to the door and make sure we have the right jacket for the cool weather. Breakfast is awesome. Room and premises are clean. Good location and neighborhood. Highly recommended.

Pleasant BnB close to the train station. Really comfy beds, clean and tidy. Staff are lovely and helpful with maps and suggestions. Well priced compared to the accommodation closer to the old town. Is suggest renting bikes from the cycle shop near the station and riding to the city centre. Otherwise it is a nice stroll or there are bus... More

I agree with most other reviews. Tenison Towers has a great location (near the train station), the rooms are very clean and the host is very kind. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a nice room for a reasonable price in Cambridge.
