It was a shame not being able to stay longer. I was at Benson House just for 1 night for a bizz trip, and I was so happy I didn't go to any of those impersonal big hotels. The place is cozy, the rooms are inviting and cute, and the service provided by Julie is great. I have to say,... More

We spent nine nights in the larger double room. The breakfasts are delicious and the breakfast room is lovely. Julia, the proprietor, takes excellent care of her guests and is a joy to visit with. Rooms are very quiet, very clean, and very comfortable. We will certainly return the next time we are in Cambridge.

We received a gentle and caring welcome, complete with a glass of sherry at 6:00pm; the bedroom suite was superb, very comfortable bed, high quality everything, wonderful and imaginative breakfast choices. A five minute walk from the centre of Cambridge.

Julie, who runs Benson House is obviously well suited to the B & B life. We are glad for that, as she made our stay in Cambridge all the better, with this small, intimate accommodation close to the city. The breakfasts were top-notch. The room, whilst small was well-appointed and had the biggest bed we'd ever seen! The only down-side... More

I spent my weekend in this amazing guest house. The host,Julie,is an angel; her cat Bertie is really lovely and my room was tidy and confortable. Breakfast menu was excellent and Julie's pancakes were really delicious!!! I spent my moments in an atmosphere of pure relax. Hopefully to come here again!!!!

A great find. Julie makes you very welcome, as does her cat Bertie! The rooms are spotless, lovely warm shower, great breakfast. Surroundings quiet and slept like a log in a comfortable bed. Very close to Cambridge centre too. Highly recommended.

This is a lovely place. We arrived on a wet afternoon after being stuck in traffic for hours, so it was so nice to walk into this clean, calm haven. It looks small from the outside but is huge and light and airy when you get inside. We were made to feel very welcome and were offered a drink on... More

A cosy B & B quite, but not too far from the town center at a reasonable prize. Our room was small but it had everything we needeed and it was very clean. The most important things, bed and breakfast, were excellent! Julie with her black cat organized us a pleasant Easter surprise!

Like many reviewers visiting son who is studying at Cambridge, and this B&B is ideally located for Churchill College. A warm welcome, spotless accommodation, great shower, and lovely breakfast is all you can ask for in a B&B. Parking is a little quirky, but any parking in Cambridge is a bonus. Would definitely use again.
