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

I normally stay in big chain hotels when on business, but I took the plunge and stayed here. Check in was super quick, my room was comfy with good amenities. The bathroom was separate I just needed to walk a few feet and it was for my sole use. The walls are a little thin so noise travels but the... More

Our initial impression was not good. Our first room was in Vincent's own words "small for large people" - we're tall but average builds. However next morning at breakfast Vincent offered to move us to another, larger room which was so much better. Breakfast was excellent and the directions and suggestions on sites to visit were very informative. We had... More

We enjoyed our visit to Cambridge and the Home from Home B&B. We stayed in the 2-guest-bedrooms Bungalow part of the B&B. The other room was ensuite, so we basically had the other bath to ourselves, which worked for us. Kevin(??), our host, proved very knowledgeable about the local restaurants and Cambridge in general, and provided excellent guidance and suggestions.... More

Great location, REALLY comfy beds and pillows, nicely furnished rooms, SUPER friendly staff and WONERFUL breakfasts - both veggie and non-veggie! Yummy!!! Only thing I'd say, if you want a lie in, stay in the main building and not in the bungalow where breakfast is served - but that was fine for us, as it meant we had more time... More

After some slight confusion of our arrival time, we made it to Home from Home and the owner was kindly waiting for us more than two hours after posted check-in. He very kindly showed us to our attic room and carried my suitcase all the way up. The room was very quaint, clean and quite comfortable with all the amenities... More

Stayed at the family room. Were surprised how large it was - two separate rooms, with a kitchen unit. Perfect for our family! The room was spotlessly clean. The decor was very much 1980s' style. But we didn't mind too much. Breakfast was one of the best I ever had in a b&b - amazingly fresh and fun fruit salad,... More
