Slightly quirky set up in this Semi Detached guest house but all very pleasant. With it being Cambridge you don't get anything (decent) for under £70 anywhere and so for £80 B & B a couple of miles out of the town centre this is completely acceptable.. I have stayed in most of the guest houses around this area as... More

The 'double room en suite' was comfortable. The bed a comfortable height for 2 OAP's to get in and out of! The bathroom was rather cramped. No separate shower, and it was impossible for my wife to climb in and out of the bath. The WC seat was loose. Shampoo, shower gel & towels were provided. The freeview TV worked... More

It is nothing special I could tell about this B&B. A bit expensive - but what is not expensive in the UK?? It is placed not too far from the city centre, not too far from the railwaystation, so you can opt to walk or use the bus. The bus station is right in the front of the house. The... More

THere was no place to stay closer to Cambridge so we stayed here. The stairs leading up to our room were very narrow and steep. The room was tastefully done except for a broken shade. The bathroom had a seat taht kept sliding off the toilet and there were no shampoos or body wash until the day we left. The... More

Stayed here for one night on a business trip, was close enough to the centre for a short taxi ride. The room was lovely (room 6), it had a doudle and a single bed and the room was massive. My room was at the back of the building which meant I had big double doors opening into the garden, lovely.... More

This property doesn't lock to inviting at first view, but it really is a little gem. Good room well fitted and probably one of the best breakfasts I ever had in any Hotel. I paid £45.00 for my room, good value in my book especially for Cambridge.

I was made very welcome. The rooms are spotless, beds clean and very comfortable. A good supply of tea coffee, plus bottles of water were available in the room. Breakfast was fresh cooked, and the plate was full. (I liked the toaster on the table, so could make the toast when required.) A continental breakfast was also available. Parking on... More

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
