I've now stayed here three times and it's been good the first two times. Unfortunately we were put in Room 1 this time which has a rather aged and saggy mattress and being so close to the kitchen and having no sound proofing, it is not very good for a decent night's sleep. The bathroom has been shoehorned in and... More

We only stayed one night and it was fine. The price makes this absolutely worth staying at if you need a place to stay whilst visiting. The food in the morning was lovely and the whole place is very clean. Lots of tradesmen were staying at the time, luckily there is a large-ish parking area out-front that made the parking... More

Enjoyed our stay here but were positioned in a front bedroom which overlooked a busy main road resulting in heavy traffic noise. We liked the friendly welcome and nicely decorated and spacious room. The cooked breakfast was delicious and there were a variety of choices. There was a good power shower over the bath. Free working WiFi, however signal quality... More

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
