Clean and tidy and well run guest house/hotel. Rooms are reasonable in size, nice and clean and have most things you might need. Breakfast was ok a but a bit little chef in style. Not in centre of town but not far from station. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Small hotel with friendly, helpful staff. Our room was a little tatty but clean. The waitresses kept visiting and revisiting our table each time one of us had finished with a bowl or plate in order to remove it. However, breakfast was excellent quality and plentiful. It is a good half hour walk from town but there is car parking... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and were very pleased with our choice of accommodation. On arrival the exterior of the property looked rather uninspiring with some cosmetic issues evident and the sight of two ? tumble-drier ducting tubes hanging out from the top-floor windows didn't improve our first impression! However, once inside it was a different... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on holiday in Cambridge. To narrow it down... On the plus side: - The breakfast is great, and the kitchen staff is very nice. - Very clean. - It's reasonably priced, being a few kilometres from the city centre. Took us about 25 mins to walk to the colleges from the hotel. - The... More

The Helen Hotel is excellent in every respect (although out of the centre of Cambridge). The staff are very good; nothing was too much trouble for them - the receptionist accommodated a special request of ours, and the ladies in the dining room, at breakfast time, were helpful, friendly and efficient. The hotel was spotlessly clean in all areas and... More

Helen Hotel is a good place to stay when visiting Cambridge. We had a room on the second floor which was great for a small family group- 2 adults 1 child. Clean and spacious. Parking was available and free which is a massive plus in Cambridge. We walked to the city. Perfectly acceptable breakfast. Very friendly staff. Would stay again.

I agree with a previous review that it really should be called a guesthouse and as such I found it personally excellent. Our room was on the top room (could be a problem with someone with walking difficulties) facing the road but had no problems with traffic noise.The room was a good size and very clean. The staff were excellent... More

There are expectations of a hotel which were not here. Call it a guest house and I'd score it higher. Building is actually two semi-detached housed knocked together with just a few walls knocked through. Front car park holds just four average cars, there is a yard at the back but you need to find it by driving down the... More

I have just stayed for 3 nights at the Helen Hotel Cambridge. This is not in the centre of the city, but due to the difficulty in parking it was better to be a short distance out. A short drive is a Cineworld witha Tesco Express, Sainsburys local and a few restaurants. Rooms are comfortable with heating, TV and tea/coffee... More

Had a twin room which was clean and the bathroom was lovely. Excellent location near Cambridge train station. It is on a main road but actually slept really well and heard no traffic at all. It was good that there was some parking. It is about a twenty minute walk to the centre of town.
