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

I have been in Cambridge for a conference and I stayed there for three days. Very nice owners and helpful. I felt I am home by their natural way of welcoming people. 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. Chris just watched my husband carry... More

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.

We liked it so much we came back. Same good service, same friendly Chris and Dusa, same squeaky floorboards. Clean, comfortable and so handy to the University area of Cambridge makes Harrys a great place to stay. If it wasn't so far from New Zealand we would stay more often.

We have stayed at Harry's 27 times in the last 3 years that our son has been at university in Cambridge and would not stay anywhere else. The very 1st time that we stayed there Chris and Dusa gave us such a lovely welcome that we naturally went back there for our next and subsequent visits to see our son.... More

We have had a lovely evening stay at Harrys B&B. We arrived and were told by Chris that we'd be staying in a tent in the garden. Much to our suprise we were presented with keys to a beautiful log cabin. It was obviously a new addition to the b&b and quite honestly stunning. With a shower room hidden in... More

Four of us stayed here in order to visit family in Cambridge. We arrived earlier than arranged but still received a warm and friendly welcome. We left our bags in the rooms and walked into the centre of Cambridge. Beautiful city, plenty to see, lovely atmosphere. The well appointed accommodation was clean and comfortable with plenty of space. Generous hospitality... More
