I stopped here for a couple of weeks, and was absolutely bowled over. The hosts, Yvonne and Stefan are lovely, who bend over backwards to make your stay a comfortable one, and always check to see if there is any more they can do. On my first morning, I overslept, (a sign of a much needed good night’s sleep!) and... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks. Outstanding service. Stefano and Yvonne were very welcoming and incredibly helpful. They always made sure things were alright and that I was comfortable. I felt at home and taken-care of from the moment I stepped through the door. The place was full of human warmth, and I didn't feel lonely at all despite being a... More

We were visiting family in Cambridge and had originally planned to stay at a B&B nearby but our reservation got messed up so we arrived with no place to stay. Fortunately for us, the first place helped us find the Southampton Guest House, only about 3 minutes away. We were effusively welcomed by the owner and shown to our room.... More

Pretty old fashioned, but nothing wrong about this place. Owner is a funny and friendly guy, within walking distance from the city center. Could use a little modernisating here and there, but maybe the old English feel would be gone than...

We came to Cambridge to drop our daughter for interview at the university. We booked a double ensuite room and we were able to park the car and walk into Cambridge, taking about 15-20 mins. We did however surrender to a taxi coming back in the evening in the freezing cold. Shame that although, the Southampton is on a main... More

I always stayed in the same room and even tho it might be a little bit old fashioned you couldn't be more looked after! The owners , lovely Yvonne and Stefan are always happy and helpful.

I stayed at the Southampton Guest House for 6 nights while getting my daughter settled at her university. It was a wonderful value for the price, and a very pleasant stay. Yvonne and Stephane are warm and helpful hosts, and the location was great, about 10 minutes walk from the City Centre. (Walking back in the evening along Midsummer Common... More

A good little B and B! Very Clean and comfortable. A little dated with the wall paper dating back a while and one of those moving water pictures in the breakfast room which I have not seen an example of since my local Indian had one about 25 years ago. Very friendly hosts and the best breakfast I have had... More

I revisited the Southampton Guest House for the fifth or sixth time after a few years absence. Stephano and Yvonne continue to provide a comfortable and relaxing place to stay and an excellent breakfast. Room 4 was very clean and contained everything you would expect. Very good value for money.
