We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in the twin-bed room. The staff members were very welcoming and helpful (giving us maps for the city and advice on how to get around). The breakfast was really good with huge portions and they have a vegetarian breakfast that's as delicious as the normal one! The place itself is really close (like max... More

What a great place to spend my holidays!!! The atmosphere is great, the breakfast might sutisfy any diatery requests and it's delicious, and I don't think I've ever stayed in a cleaner room than the one at the A&B. The rooms are lovely, the beds are comfy. I think it was definitely worth every single penny!

Nice, comfortable and quiet stay. Great breakfast with good choices and vegan/gluten free friendly. Good location, close to the train station. Offer to leave the luggage till evening to enjoy my last day in Cambridge was very helpful. All the best and thanks for everything!

Staff were very friendly and helpful. I was able to leave my suitcase and walk into the town centre. There are plenty of eating places 5 minutes' walk away. I was also able to leave my heavy bag on the day I left so that I could comfortably enjoy my final half day in Cambridge before catching the train home.... More

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

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
