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

Home from Home is a very good BnB for the price and location. The room was spotless in terms of cleanliness and presentation. However, some of the decor could use an update, as the wallpaper is starting to look tatty in places, although it's nothing that would spoil a very comfortable and welcoming stay. Finally, the breakfast choice and quality... More

Stayed for one night here, our room was huge, even had a small kitchen,living room, bedroom and bathroom with an excellent shower and lovely hot water. Comfy bed and relatively quiet considering the accommodation is on the main road. Excellent breakfast, plenty of choice all cooked to order and served in a very pleasant and welcoming breakfast room, if only... More

We booked the large double but were given what I guess was the family room in the basement of the main building - although the sitting area faced onto the main road at the front of the premises, the bedroom was at the back and didn't suffer from traffic noise. Living/kitchen area with a sofa, TV, table and chairs with... More

So many things about this place suited our needs. First, there is a carpark so we left our car here and then (second good thing) strolled into town across the river and Midsummer Common. Third, it turned out our "double ensuite " was a two-room flat with fully equipped kitchen, even things like kitchen roll provided, and of course tea... More

Stayed at the B&B for a few weeks through work and overall very good. Rooms reasonably priced and local to the centre so easily accessible to bars and restaurants. Service is good as the owners go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay and the breakfasts are great. However, you have to tell them you are... More
