The staff is really nice and very polite. The The room is spacious, but unfortunately it was not very clean. The bedding and towels were clean, but the room and the bathroom need a very good scrub. There was dust on the lampshades and skirting boards. Mold in the shower and limescale on the shower head. The carpet needs a... More

A most charming B and B just slightly out of town in Cambridge. Free parking, which is critical in Cambridge. Charming attendants: friendly, nice, and helpful. Clean rooms with private bath. Great in room coffee, tea, biscuits, cocoa and more. Windows that open. Lovely cozy breakfast room with nice view of the garden. Great breakfast choices, cold to hot and... More

More than once I have come back to Cambridge, a place very familiar to me, and wanted a quiet, clean place to stay, and in a convenient location. A and B have offered this over and over. They have been flexible when I have requested a certain room / wanted to stay an extra night / leave a little luggage... More

I travelled to Cambridge in september for business related visited at one of the university departements. Most of the hotels where fully booked or very expensive at that time. And this might have actually been a good thing as it led me to find this B&B place. First of all if you are arriving by train and plan to visit... More

While visiting Cambridge we stayed in this B&B for 1 night. It is centrally located between the old colleges and the railway station. Restaurants and pubs are at walking distance, which is of course convenient. The B&B has its own parking lot, also very convenient. The room we stayed in was small but clean. A bit noisy perhaps because, although... More

We recently visited Cambridge and stayed at this little Guest House, what a find!! Breakfast was brilliant, staff very friendly and knowledgable of Cambridge. Rooms were nice and airy and very clean, the bathrooms were a bit small but more than adequate for us, showers were really powerful!! When we return to Cambridge we will definitely will stay here again.

I booked this B&B for my parents to stay in while they were visiting me because it seemed good and it was near the train station. In other circumstances I would give it an average rating. There were a couple issues during my parents stay, that I was not there for, and all of which were settled independently of me.... More

Patricia074, Manager at A & B Guest House, responded to this review

These Guests were rather unusual from the moment they arrived. Their daughter had been to the Guest House and looked at a wide selection of our double rooms and her main concern was cost. She certainly was at the premises an awful lot of the time although she did return to her own accommodation at night. The main issue that... More

This was my second stay at A & B Guest house. I had a double room on the top floor which was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was excellent with plenty to choose from. The first time I stayed here I booked through booking.com. The second time I decided to contact the hotel direct as they advised me... More

My partner, I and our new born baby stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The room was very comfortable, with an en suite which included a nice powerful shower (important to me!). The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly and it was a lovely place to come back to after visiting relatives with their own newborn!... More
