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.

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
