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

I booked this B&B through Hotels.com and I stipulated that I needed a disabled accessible room. On arrival the owner Vince, said that the room I had booked wasn't suitable and they at hotels.com shouldn't have booked it. Vince phoned hotels.com to complain and we set about trying to find alternative accommodation, which after an hour and a half of... More

We stayed at Home from Home in January for a long weekend. Home from Home was very comfortable and the breakfasts were enormous! It was in a good location - about 10 minutes walk to the city centre. I would definitely recommend this B & B.

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
