In early December 2014 I posted a balanced, courteous and ultimately complimentary albeit “Average” review headed “Should easily have been better”. It was an average stay with a number of minor irritations and nothing about it able to justify a higher review. This further review is necessary to deal with the very serious allegations about me made by the owner... More

I have just moved to Cambridge for a new job and whilst looking for my own place, I stayed for two weeks at this excellent, friendly B&B. My room was very clean, comfortable and the service was excellent. The breakfast was also great! It is also a short walk into the city. Thanks Chris & Dusa for being so accommodating... More

We arrived at 9.00 pm and received a friendly greeting. They were happy to switch on the heating, even though it was late, and our room became warm rapidly and stayed that way all night. Great night's sleep - quiet room, excellent large bed, high standard shower in morning. Harry generously allowed us to keep the car in the front... More

Harry's B&B was brilliant! Spotless clean large rooms, great toilet facilities in addition to excellent breakfast & hosts that can only be described as top notch. Hilton Milton Keynes had double booked our room & closest option was Harry's in Cambridge, taxi paid for by hilton & will be sure to book Harry's next time! Don't ever book Hilton Milton... More

Thanks to Chris for a nice stay in Cambridge which we booked the night before from York. Harry's B&B is a short walk to the Cam river and 10-15 mins walk to the colleges along the river paths and boardwalk. There are also some very good gastro pubs closeby like the Old Spring which is only 5 minutes walk. Breakfast... More

Quick service, delicious fish cakes and a warm friendly welcome! Working in a busy, hot restaurant must have been very hard on the staff yesterday but if it was they didn't show it. My waitress was a friendly young lady (Beth) and was knowledgable with the menu . Food arrived quickly and I'd particulary recommend the fish cakes. Very enjoyable... More

The breakfast is so tasty and the coffee as well. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is also well located, walking distance from the city center.... More

clean rooms good English breakfast .i but little things would have helped at Harry's bnb. We were originally going to stay 4 nights and then made it one so I don't know if this had a part to play but the ground floor room they had assigned us was now a 1st floor room.

Christopher M, Owner at Harry's Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

The people who complain like this are just so petty and simple. I don't carry peoples bags up one flight of stairs because I have a back problem. Who do they think they are Carry your own bags you certainly looked capable to me. So the local restaurants were closed at 10pm. Oh dear what a tragedy, I suppose I... More

Very helpful owners, simple but tasteful breakfast. Clean and comfortable. Good stay. Street noise was little disturbing, but compensated by proximity to city center and universities. Recommended for short stay.
