I really liked the room I had, included a bedroom and separate sitting area with lots of windows and spotless all around. Nice 15 minute walk to main uni buildings and two nice pubs very close by. Host was very helpful during my short stay! Wish I could have stayed longer

A warm welcome, a lovely clean family top-floor bedroom for 4, large,comfortable beds and a delicious breakfast the next morning. It suited our needs perfectly and we will certainly be back. Parking is limited, so you may need to ask to reserve a place.

My first review bounced so I will simply say I cannot find anything good to say about it. Everything is at once sub-standard and over-priced and I cannot truthfully comment on the owner's attitude and the state of the room or the breakfast. The ONE redeeming feature is the lovely foreign lady who dealt with our initial application. I will... More

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

this review is a pack of lies written by someone with a deranged mind. This person is talking rubbish. He never ever stayed at my bed and breakfast. I suspect somebody has paid him to write this nonsense. i would like to speak to him personally but he is too much of a coward to contact me. That tells me... More

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
