We arrived at the guesthouse last minute and were greeted happily. Room was suitable for us, bed & ensuite. Shower head was cracked so the flow wasnt ideal but hey, the shower got us wet so nothing really to complain about. Jeremy Kyle was on the telly so had a laugh at that. A fiver for brekkie - tasty fry-up.... More

I stayed with a bunch of my colleagues for work, and I cannot speak highly enough of Acacia. Genuinely had the nicest stay there, and was very well looked after. I'll try and summarise...: - The rooms were modern and very well looked after (cleaned everyday). - The breakfast was really good and served at a time requested (if ordered... More

Good value for money for UK standards. Room was very clean, beds very comfortable and customer service excellent. Transportation links to the train station and the city are good. Bathroom could do with some improvement, water pressure in shower and from tap was very low.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while visiting the area. It is located about 2mile from Cambridge but there is a bus at the corner which runs every 10 minutes into town. Our room was out the back upstairs overlooking the yard. The bed was comfy and clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast room a little small... More

We stayed here at the weekend. It was very clean and comfortable and served our needs perfectly. The couple who run it were lovely and hard working. The breakfast was lovely and fresh. We are going to be regular visitors to Cambridge and plan to stay here in the future if there is a room.

My partner and I were looking for a cheap accomodation for just two nights and the room we were given was just fine: not pristine - but you can't expect much from these places - but the bathroom was clean, with new fixtures, and the bed was clean and comfortable. Our room was quiet and the area were the hotel... More

I was in desperate need of a place to stay in Cambridge as my usual guest house I normally stay at was fully booked. Acacia had a single room available for the night I required. Although a rather unspectacular place which is in need of some major refurbishment, it served my needs well. I had private use of the normally... More

This B&B has some good points and not so good points. We were staying for two nights, it was our sons graduation. So very handy for leaving our car at the front of the house and catching the number 3 bus just around the corner into the town centre. Four spaces at the front of the guest house for cars,... More

My mother and I stayed here last night, in the twin ensuite Room 9 while visiting my brother who is currently living in Cambridge. Although we were unsure what to expect, the lady looking after the guesthouse while the owners are on holiday gave us a very warm welcome and showed us to our room. The room and the bathroom...

The staff were extremely friendly and were happy to accommodate our requests. The room was very clean and larger than anticipated and the en suite was large enough. The breakfast was also good and it was nice to have a choice of cooked breakfasts and cereals. The location is out of town however there is an accessible bus stop just... More
