We just returned from visiting our son who is studying this semester in Cambridge. Benson House was a perfect place to start off our first visit to the UK! Julie treated us to a wonderful breakfast each morning. The room was very nice - clean and very comfortable. This was our first B&B experience and we were not disappointed!

Our first visit to cambridge and we hit on a gem with this hotel. Julie went out of her way to help us with an early parking request. We were only there one night so made an early start and didn't want to interrupt the day to move from the multi storey to the hotel parking at check in time.... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Benson House. Great location and wonderful place. The room and toiletries were exceptional. We were allowed a use of the fan since it was so hot. Exceptional breakfast in the morning in wonderful China. Great place to stay.

We spent two nights at Benson's and found everything to be up to scratch with lots of thoughtful touches from the landlady, Julie. She'll bring you wine and canapes on your first evening, happily chats, delivers a first class breakfast. The room at the top was tasteful and comfortable. The front rooms are on a busy road but we slept... More

Spent a wonderful night here. Booked the top floor room and, although small (attic room), the decor and furniture were easily up to hotel standards. Although the room was on the front of the house it was quiet, with little traffic noise and we slept soundly in the comfortable bed! The shower room was clean with modern fittings and the... More

My husband and I stayed in Benson for 11 days to visit my daughter and for sightseeing, it leaves us with beautiful memories. Julie is a loving landlady, kind and caring and thoughtful and never intruding. I was given a lovely gift in the Mother's Day during breakfast time and it did give me a big surprise, so was the...

We really enjoyed the high class service and the quality of the food in this brilliant B&B. It is very close to the city centre, so walking in for touring the city and for evening meals was easy. My wife was even given a Mother's Day present - there were many little touches like that that made our stay fantastic.... More

I really liked Benson House B$B and give it a really great recommendation. For whatever reason, I had never stayed at a B&B before, as my business travel in the US usually has me at larger hotels. Now that I've tried a B&B I'll certainly think about choosing one more often in the future. I stayed at Benson House for... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed in Benson House B&B for two nights in March while visiting friends in Cambridge. Julie runs a fantastic B&B and there really is nothing to complain about. The rooms are lovely, with fresh décor and comfortable beds. The shower in our en suite was great as well. Julie also made sure to leave a bottle... More

I went there in February just for a night. It is a very clean house, the room are not so big but very comfortable with a lot of facilities (tv, wifi, kettle, coffe, tea and snacks!). Julie and her cat are lovely! The breakfast is very rich and homemade (Julie's pancakes are amazing).
