The positives of staying here were that it is in a great location, just 15 minute walk from Cambridge centre, the staff were very friendly, room was comfortable and the breakfast was great! We stayed in a room in the building behind the main house, so I cannot speak for the main house rooms. The only downside of the stay... More

We have just stayed here for the weekend while attending racing at Newmarket and we have to say we would recommend it to everyone. The owners couldn't do enough for us, making us feel 'home from home'. Every where was spotless and very welcoming. The breakfast was first class, everything shouted quality, catering for everyone's needs. Our room was to... More

We have been many times before but this is my first review, we attended the Folk Festival this year. The bus stop is only a short walk. The breakfast is well cooked and well presented. The owner is on site and gives you all the attention you need. Our room was clean fresh, the staff helpful and friendly.

The staff is really good at this hotel, they are very professional and helpful. The rooms on the other hand is of the typical English standard. Damp, carpeted and in need of a renovation. The smell of air fresheners hit you when you enter the room. The breakfast is good, you can choose the typical English or continental. The breakfast... More

We had a far from welcoming meeting, where we for example were told that the breakfast room was already occupied next day beween 8 - 9.30, as we checked in as the latest (3.30 p.m.) We stayed in the two bedroom with livingroom accomodation. One bedroom is surprisingly in the attic. Very warm. Windowframe was broken, so we could not... More

Truly enjoyed our stay in Home from Home. Breakfast was absolutely delicious with lots of options available and lovely fresh fruit salad as extra bonus. Rooms were lovely with very comfortable beds with almost luxurious bedlinen. There was an iron and ironing board available in the room which was also considerate. The couple running the place were very friendly and... More

We stayed here whilst visiting the Cambridge folk festival at the weekend with day passes. It was very comfortable (with a good shower available after getting wet at the festival!). The hosts were very friendly and the breakfasts were very tasty. Highly recommended!

There is the main house and a bungalow at the back, which is where I was - this is well shielded from any external noise, like the road, though the walls are rather thin so you can't miss internal noises from other rooms. Very comfortable room - sofa, desk, big bed etc - and well maintained. The big selling point... More

We stayed here a week and as we needed to be in the town centre daily, got in a lot of walking. The room was comfortable; the host interesting; and the breakfast was better than expected. The breakfast room is small so be prepared to reserve a sitting time daily. No air conditioning but the windows open so despite the... More

Great B and B 15 mins walk till the centre of Cambridge. The rooms are spotless and the host is welcoming and helpful. Parking at the back, however watch entering, it's a very narrow entrance. Breakfast was the best I have ever had at a B and B. About 6 different things to pick from on the menu. I had... More
