Stayed 3 nights in Lynwood house over the bank holiday weekend. The unexciting exterior and hallway belied the beautiful, comfortable room we had. The bathroom might as well have come straight from a luxury hotel, and we slept very well on all 3 nights. The owners are lovely and were full of useful suggestions on what to do and see.... More

I have stayed a couple of times at this B&B and had nice experiences both times. Decent rooms, if a bit on the small size but with very good, clean bathrooms and good showers. Nespresso machines in the bedrooms! Great breakfasts and really good choice of food. Julie and Nick are charming hosts. Maybe a wee bit more than I... More

I spent 5 nights whilst in Cambridge on business. I found the place immaculate and very comfortable. My room had everything that you expect to find in a hotel. Very nice ensuite with quality products, tv, tea / coffee making facilities, etc I was made to feel very welcome by the owners who seemed keen to offer any assistance required.... More

Julie and Nick made you feel most welcome in their gorgeous and immaculate b&b. Not only did we have a comfortable stay their help and advice of what to see and where to go in Cambridge was most helpful. With shops, bars and restaurants only a 5 minute walk away the location couldn't have been more perfect. We even managed... More

I booked a single ensuite at the last minute, having read the reviews. Julie sounded easy going and helpful and the room was a very reasonable rate for one person (not always so easy to find). I was attending a graduation ceremony and only there for one night. When I arrived, my key was left in the safe box, so... More

Spotless - with a large room - Lynwood house comes across as a very modern place. I stayed over for 1 night in a twin room with my son. As we entered the room, it was first like a small 'corridor', with the bathroom door to the right and spaces and wall hangers to keep our clothes and suitcase. This... More

Lynwood House doesn't look amazing from the outside, being on a main road, but inside it is stunning. It's furnished to a high standard with spacious rooms and high ceilings. We stayed in Room 3 at the back of the house and it was so quiet you would think you were in the secluded countryside. The room and bathroom were... More

This is a delightful place to stay. Nick and Julie are very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. We took Nick’s suggestion and visited King’s College Chapel on the Friday evening for Evensong which was wonderful. The bedroom and bathroom were beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The location is superb, just a short walk across Jesus Green to the centre... More
