We had booked 2 rooms in this "guesthouse" for 2 nights based on their nice looking website, it all appeared to be very misleading. Me and my wife were put in the attic where, if I bended my head, could touch both walls with my shoulders. It was impossible to stand upstraight. The fan of the shower compartment was so... More

I arrived late one evening and the door was locked. I rang the number posted on the door and the owner (?) gave me a 4 digit passcode to open the door. There was nowhere to lock my bike and I couldn't get through the locked side door to a passage. The owner said he'd be along later and open... More

I booked a room for one night 5 months in advance and had to cancel it only 5 hours after it was booked and had to pay the full amount of £75 as a cancellation fee! I could understand it if it was a week before I was due to arrive, but 5 months is plenty of notice, and it's... More

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
