Just a few minutes' walk from the north buildings of Cambridge campus, a small, clean house with a few rooms. Very quiet and pretty residential area. Room was very well appointed for the price, has wifi, a common living room, hot cooked breakfast. You must go up steps to the room (no lift.) You can get a cab there from... More

Stayed here overnight after a wedding: nice short walk from Registry Office, spotlessly clean, quiet, good breakfast, not a huge room but everything you want. And at £70 for 2 people a real bargain, I thought. would definitely go again.

Spotless room. Reasonable Price. Short(ish!) walk from centre. Very friendly owner. Decent breakfast. Quiet location (apart from floorboards, but whose house is perfect?!). Would stay again but must remember to limber up before tackling Castle Hill every day!!

Very clean and quiet. It's on a very quiet street just off the main road. The walk from the Canterbury to Trinity College took about 12 minutes at a fairly brisk walking pace. My single room was small but just right for my needs. The proprietor, Steve, was extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast was very good and the room... More

Needed somewhere last minute. This place is plain but spotlessly clean, everything you could expect from a B&B. On the down-side the curtains are thin, so if light bothers you take an eye mask, and I found the traffic noise (or something - couldn't quite work out what it was) intrusive; and having moved rooms on the last night and...

I was looking for a nice bed & breakfast near my college (Murray Edwards) for my mom and my sister for a few days. After checking the B&Bs and Hotels in the city center I found this amazing place. First of all it is not directly at Huntingdon road, so rather quiet, compared to e.g. Benson House. Second the rooms... More

Convenient location, just a short walk from city centre. Owner moved his car so that we could park off road. Double room had recently been renovated and was very comfortable. Very good value at £70 a night.

I'm not sure why there are so few reviews about this B&B, it will be one of my top choices the next time I visit Cambridge. I stayed there for three nights on a single room at 45 pounds per night, a reasonable price for what is offered and cheap compared with other places in Cambridge. The room was large... More

Great, I can't fault, it. Comfortable and very clean. Nice choice for breakfast in pleasant surroundings, located well away from noise but close to city centre, A14, science park. Very friendly owner will go out his way to make your stay pleasant. Would reccommend.
