This guesthouse is absolutely disgusting. It is riddled with damp. The reviews are poor but any person with a general knowledge of health will know that you do not expect it to be hazardous to health. The owner George was repugnant, claimed that there was nothing wrong with the guesthouse, even though it reeks of damp. George then slammed the... More

My stay at abbeyfield guest house was not good. For the price I don't mind that it's not pretty, nor that a lot is broken or that the bathroom is shared. What I do mind is the cleanliness. The bathroom was terribly dirty (may be due to other guests, but it shows what they think about the house as well),... More

Myself and a few friends stayed here on a Saturday in November. I booked this two months prior and I had a call from the owner confirming all of the details and the process. He was very helpful and answered all of my questions. We were staying following a stag do and returned in the early hours of the morning.... More

It stinks of fish, we thought it must have been someone's musky fanny but it could have been the bathmat. Got told to ring George if we had any problems, but unfortunately we weren't given the main mans number. We renamed the place abbey slaughter house because it gave off the vibe you were about to be killed brutally. In... More

Whilst working in Cambridge i stayed here twice. The first time the owner wasn't there when i needed to check in, so waited. The bed was old and creaked with every move. There was a bit of litter just under the bed (sweet wrappers). The second time i stayed he did not meet me at all, the key was under... More

Things just went downhill from the moment I was greeted by a foul mouthed, abusive and lying owner to the time I was driving off after an extremely unpleasant stay and his 'wife' rang me on my mobile to shout and swear at me. The rooms are the wrong side of Spartan, the bathrooms dirty (and the plugs do not... More

The only good thing is that is clean and my single room has TV. The rest, anything good. They don't have anyone to ask something, maps of the city, breakfast and it is expensive because I paid 45 for one night (single room). It only includes a towel.

The previous reviews made this sound like it was going to be a hell hole. Turned out to be good value for money. Host was friendly,rooms were clean. About 20 minutes walk to the centre of town. Only downside was the drunk students who came back at 4am and threw up in the hall. More a comment on their character... More
