The room, breakfast and overall service were excellent, especially considering the price. The decor is quite old fashioned and eccentric but no worse for that. The room was quite small but had a lovely comfortable bed. There was even a jacuzzi but i didn't use it as i didn't want to wake the neighbours (!) The breakfast was superb and... More

My mum and I stayed over Christmas for 3 nights so we could spend Christmas with family. We read these reviews after booking but before arriving and were a little trepidatious. We booked over the phone so we gave our ETA then (7.30pm). My mum had read that the parking was not directly outside (not a big surprise given the... More

My girlfriend and I looked for suitable accommodation close to Cambridge Junction. We unsuspectingly happened upon the online links to this " Guest House". What we didn't realise was that we were about to sign up to a nightmare. Booking was deceitfully easy online - we were then required to call a given number ahead of time for out of... More

We booked this place after looking on line (forgot to check this website, unfortunately!) and found it wasn't the way it looked in the pictures. After a long drive form Windermere this place was an unpleasant surprise. The bed and mattress are way past due replacement, the room's tiny, the floor coverings throughout are threadbare and the shower just dribbles.... More

It has taken me 6 months to get round to writing this. I keep thinking of doing it, in an effort to stop other making the same mistake I did, but then I shudder, and find myself in a corner weeping. Ok. Bit dramatic perhaps. But this place was horrific. My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights in... More

We stayed here one night, choosing this for its location within walking distance of the Cambridge Folk Festival. We paid a premium price and the website led us to believe we would be staying in a boutique style b&b decorated to a high standard. We booked a four poster double bed. We did not see the room until we returned... More

We booked this B&B as part of a group of friends going to the Cambridge Festival six months before the festival. We rang the day before our arrival to confirm our booking, but the lady on the phone was "too busy" to check. We 'phoned again on the morning of our booking only to be told that we were moved...

Beware, don't book the Brooklands, Ashtrees or Mowbrays guest houses in Cambridge. Booked for one night for me and my husband for his birthday treat at the Brooklands Guest House in Cambridge, 95 Cherry Hinton Road, Cambridge. I then realised it was too far from our favourite Cambridge restaurant Browns (awesome restaurant) and punting, so cancelled the same day I... More

This is a nice B&B with easy walking access to Cambridge and the colleges. We stayed in the attic room 2nd floor (level 3 American). It was small, but comfortable. The breakfast was very good. I booked with a Credit Card, but cash seemed to work better for paying the bill. We had free parking and a comfortable bed for... More

I wasn't really sure what to expect so took a leap of faith and booked one night at this Guest House. To say the rooms are small would be an understatement and 2 people navigating the room was impossible. On entry I knew I had made a terrible mistake. On a plus side the owner was helpful and the bed... More
