We recently spent the weekend here whilst visiting nearby relatives. We had booked the best room, and we were not disappointed. The superking bed was very comfortable and the room itself was clean, bright and functional. The bathroom looked to be newly fitted and the whirlpool bath was lovely! Our host Elizabeth was delightful and very friendly. Breakfast was candlelit... More

This was our first visit to Cambridge and having read some horror stories about parking charges we were looking for somewhere reasonably close to the centre and on or near a bus route. We usually stay at hotels but the very positive reviews for this guesthouse and its location made our minds up. What a great choice, our room was... More

As regular visitors to Cambridge, we've stayed in a few places and would definitely recommend Alington House...Good location for town (walkable, bus-able and cab-able). Extremely friendly welcome and excellently presented room. Immaculately clean. We'd absolutely stay again!

I first arrived at Alington in the heart of a dark, snowy winter, after a long day in the office, having first travelled there on one of those days the AA advises you not to travel if you don't have to. It was a real refuge; I appreciated the generosity of the heating being on... many b&bs I'd stayed in... More

Stayed just one night in the twin room the night before my wedding.Room was the twin, disabled facilities room. It had a wet room and was as expected for the price, basic, clean and functional. A decent cooked breakfast and made all the more pleasant by very friendly and helpful staff. Location wise, there are places nearer the centre if... More

Truly fantastic. Helpful, breakfast was lush,very clean, really friendly. What more could you want? The ensuite was a little small, but how long do you spend in a bathroom? I'd happily stay there again.

Elizabeth was a charming and most helpful host for our four days at Alington House. On her advice we purchased week-long bus passes, which made our travel in and around Cambridge painless. Her breakfasts were hearty and delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed chatting with her each morning. She helped me contact a friend whom I had not communicated with for decades,... More

Stayed here for 3 days for a business trip. Free wifi and continental breakfast make the Alington much better value than any of other hotels or B&Bs in Cambridge. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was very good with nice fresh coffee. Owner is very helpful and has lots of local knowledge regarding local sites and getting around. Highly... More
