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

We booked a one-bedroom apartment in Milton Villas (also called Home from Home B&B) and had every facility and comfort we could have wished for, including off-road parking. Our host welcomed us with a hot cup of tea and biscuits, and gave us advice about tourist attractions and places to eat. The location was within easy walking distance (15 mins)... More

For a family, the room given in the annex was small. We were kept waiting for the breakfast as others had already come in. The breakfast area being small only 2 families could be accomodated. Service needs improvement, though the rooms and toilets are clean.

We stayed at Home from Home for 4 nights during May Bumps week and had a very pleasant stay. We were in the basement apartment which was very spacious and comfortable with good amenities for sleeping (large comfortable bed) and relaxing in lounge area. Vince is a very good host and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was one... More
