I had carefully planned a trip down UK, booked several different hotels along my way, so far so good. 4 days before arriving to that "guest" house, I receive a phone call at 21:30 on my cell saying from a not so friendly voice never introducing himself, saying that due to my card being void my reservation was lost and...

If I could not star it, I would. I booked this double room due to the lack of availability of anywhere else but I still regret it. The room was squalid and outdated, the tiny en suite had a broken shower door and carpet on the floor (I don't understand why anyone would do that!) but by far the worst... More

Location is pretty good, within walking distance from the city centre. helpful staff, room was clean but top floor rooms are avoidable because of space. Parking available and even after checkout you can use the parking space

I think that some of the reviews of this place are unfair, it is a guest house not the Ritz. My experience was excellent, with no disappointments. We were given a friendly welcome and shown to our room. The room was clean and in very good decorative order. It was furnished well. There was sufficient storage, tea and coffee making... More

When I arrived at this guest house, after a very long journey, the owner told me he had no record of my booking and no room available, I showed him my laterooms confirmation, he just shrugged and offered to give me some numbers of other places. I suspect that he had received a block booking and therefore my reservation was... More

Having booked to attend a wedding, we were contacted by the guest house less than a week before saying they had to cancel our room. They provided a telephone number for one other B&B (Which was already fully booked) and said they would refund our credit card. Three months later and they have still not returned the money for the... More

My usual Cambridge B&B being fully booked, I found this one on the web without checking it on Trip Advisor. Mistake! The only human contact I had with the place in a three-night stay was with the pleasant young man who checked me in and showed me up to my clean, comfortable and fairly spacious room. He also gave me... More

I stayed here with my daughter when we went to the Cambridge Folk Festival for the day. We were welcomed warmly on arrival, offered tea or coffee and a choice of rooms. We chose the smaller room overlooking the garden, the room was clean and freshly decorated (though not exactly designer boutique style) , the bathroom was fine, the shower... More

The Guest House and location were just average. Found the owner's manner very abrupt and unfriendly. Have stayed in accommodation offering a more central location and far better value in beautiful Cambridge previously, so was extremely disappointed with Alpha Milton.

We stayed at the Milton for a weekend away at the beginning of September. The house is basic, but clean, all you really need for a weekend stay. The manager was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was good (the Traditional English). Ample off street parking (they let us leave our car parked there all day after checking out... More
