We stayed for one night, while we visited Cambridge. Very clean comfortable room. Made to feel very welcome and an amazing breakfast to set us up for the day ahead. Added bonus was the shared kitchen that was available should it be required. Good location with free parking and within a short walk to the city. Would visit again.

We booked an apartment for 2 nights - after some initial confusion about checking in the helpful owner gave us details of how to get in. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed, including a free WIFI code. Walkable distance from the centre of Cambridge and free parking.

On arriving we were shown the attic room which was clean and tidy, but if your taller than 4foot you've no chance of standing up straight so back breaking!. We were then offered a double room for the rest of our stay (80.2) which was slightly larger but at least you could stand up. The wallpaper is coming away from... More

It doesn't matter how lovely the people are, if the beds are uncomfortable & the shower a trickle, it doesn't make for an exemplary experience and therefore means this B& B was very expensive & disappointing. The shower also didn't have any shower gel which I would say is a basic requirement. It said it had free wifi but that... More

Our room was quite large and had a large bathroom. It was very comfortable and quiet. Vince, the owner, was very nice and very helpful and he made the best breakfasts. I had Eggs Benedict twice and scrambled eggs and mushrooms the last day we were there. Viola, his helper, was very sweet. The dining room is very nice and... More

We booked a small double here, and were fully prepared for it to be small after reading reviews, however on arrival, we had been upgraded to a duoble wtih kitchen/diner, there was nothing lacking here, was spotlessly clean, had everything we needed, staff were pleasant and very welcoming, and breakfast was great, would definitely return if in Cambridge again.

We felt this was a good value accommodation with parking. We were able to walk into Cambridge. On the day we checked out we were able to leave our car in the car park. Breakfast was very nice with lots of choice. We booked a small double room, which meant that it was a bit narrow around 2 sides of... More

This B and B is on the edge of town and close enough to walk into town. The room we had was very small with a double bed but very clean. The hosts are very helpful and would do anything for you. Breakfast was excellent. Parking is a challenge in Cambridge and we were able to leave our car there... More

Quaint accommodation that goes above what the average hotel would accommodate. Sat nav got us lost around the one way system so the owner greeted us outside the property waving us down the drive way. Free parking is great because everything you need is in walking distance. My partner and I stayed in room number 5 which is the attic... More

Stayed here for two nights. The room in the main building was disappointing. There is a water leak between the toilet and the sink, the shower is poor with the shower door falling of the hinges, only two of the curtain blinds work properly and the shash windows do not open properly. Having said that the bedroom was clean, although... More
