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.

Being a avid procrastinator I am only now getting around to writing a review for the great 3 day stay we had at Cambridge City Tenison Towers. We had reserved for two people but when we arrived there were three of us. This change of plans was not a problem for the wonderful host, Inga. She was very accommodating and... More

My friend and I loved this B&B in Cambridge. The room was clean, there was an en-suite bathroom. The bathroom was not big, but it was big enough for us - and it was clean! The breakfast was very nice. Freshly baked muffins each morning. The landlady was very nice - and she clearly loved her job! The location of... More

My friend and I stayed for just a night but Inga was warm & welcoming! In addition to her helpful advice about where to go in Cambridge, we had comfy beds in a lovely twin room, with delicious home cooked breakfasts for 5 pounds/person. It's also conveniently close to the railway station. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for... More

The host is a cute and extremly kind woman. The rooms are a good deal for couples and singles who will spend most part of the day on the city. The good point is that is near to the rail station, so it is not necessary to take a taxi to get there.

I chose this B&B for its proximity to the railway station. The room, while small and a little cold, was very nice. The owners were very friendly, and flexible, as my plans changed a bit once I arrived. The breakfast was quite nice. Good value for the money. I would stay here again.

Very close to the train station, this B&B is probably the best choice if you want a clean and simple room to sleep in without spending too much (in Cambridge also a medium-level hotel is expensive). Our double room was pretty new in furniture, comfortable and clean. The only negative aspect is maybe the bathroom, too small for a double.... More

Stayed at Tenison Towers, which is ran by the lovely Inga. Affordable, comfortable and convenient for the train station. Inga cant do enough for you and her breakfasts were always welcome and filling. Real homely feel about the place
