The location on the ring road of Cambridge means easy access, but also lots of traffic noise through the windows. The rooms (and bathrooms) have been recently modernized, they are stylish and clean. The mattress was quite stout and thus suited me well, but the bed was ridiculously short; should have been a foot longer at least. The bathroom also... More

Had a one night stay for a girls weekend in Cambridge. Expected with 3 of us sharing one room things might be a bit cramped but it was ideal and there was plenty of room. Even had a little sofa and doors opening on to the garden. The room was immaculate and the beds extremely comfy with some of the... More

Very nice stay for one night. We had a spacious en suite room with a hanging closet. Ample off street parking. Note: house no.140 is attached to 138 and is a part of the B&B. Park anywhere in front. Decent breakfast. It's a bit of a hike to city centre but the Citi 2 bus passes right in front so... More

Very clean and spacious family room for four with en suite worked really well for our one night in Cambridge. Great breakfast selection to satisfy all appetites - I would recommend the full English though! Friendly snd attentive service without being overbearing. Would come back again most definitely!

Excellent value for money, rooms were spacious and well appointed, car parking is available and the breakfasts were very good. Clean family run guest house with friendly service catering to all requirements. Would definately recommend it to anyone.

Excellent stay at the Carolina, well run, friendly and an excellent breakfast (especially the bacon!). A good place to view the historic city of Cambridge; which is an interesting walk from the guest house 2.25 miles down Mill Road; full of restaurants from all countries down the bottom end. Thank you to Paz for the hospitality.

Stayed here for three nights last month whilst family member was in Addenbrookes hospital. Very clean room, staff were friendly and approachable, spoilt myself with full English every morning which was consistently fresh and delicious. It's a five minute bus journey to the hospital and the bus stop is next to the guesthouse. Only went into City centre once but... More

Great value for three of us in a shared ground floor room with garden access. Impeccably clean, comfortable beds and good shower. Yummy breakfast. Short bus ride from central Cambridge ************************************

I returned to Cambridge to attend the Folk Festival. I travelled with friends staying in the Carolina guest house once again. The guest house is well positioned to visit the festival on foot, it’s a 15-20 minutes stroll. The property is very clean and furnished to a high standard. There is a hair dryer and iron in each room. The... More

I've just returned from the Folk Festival and this was my third visit to the Carolina. My friend and I had another wonderful stay. The proprietors are warm and friendly, the room was spotless, as is the rest of the B&B, and there's a huge choice for breakfast. I've just booked for next year as I think this really is... More
