My initial thought of a B&B was totally different from what Alexander B&B offers .Everything started with a warm welcome from Roderick, followed by the same warm welcome from Vera.Even though I didn't had the time to catch up with them very often, I can tell that they are more than friendly, they are great. They made me feel like... More

I lived at Alexander Bed and Breakfast for the Michelmas term of 2014, while I was visiting Cambrigde University for a research stay. This turned out to be a perfect choice for a long term working stay (but not long enough to rent an apartment). Alexander B & B offers space, privacy and easy access to the city center as... More

The warm greeting of Vera and Roderick started before I arrived in Cambridge from Ethiopia. My initial thought of the B&B is a large accommodation with lots of rooms which is inappropriate to get good rest. Within few days, I proved myself wrong. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and are suitable to study. In addition, the location is ideal... More

The rooms are very nice, the bed in my room was super comfortable and the breakfast very handy, healthy and complete. The place is located in a brilliant point: (1) very close to mill road, which is full of good restaurants, and several supermarkets, and (2) about 7 minutes walking from the rail station, which makes super easy to travel....

If you a looking for a place to stay around Cambridge, I would recommend you to consider The Alexander B&B. Its close proximity to the city center (10 minites walk), the train station (5 minutes walk), quite, serene neighbourhood makes it the ideal place for tourist from all over the world. With an earlier arrangement on your preferences with the... More

I stayed at the B&B for three weeks in June while looking for a flat. I really enjoyed my time there. The owners are friendly, helpful, hospitable and welcoming. The place is clean, well maintained centrally located. The service is impeccable. Highly recommended! Danesh

I've been staying here for a month while looking for a permanent house, and I wish I could stay here for my 2-year of work contract in Cambridge! Vera and Roderick are so kind and helpful in every aspect. More than the BnB owners, I feel they are my second family that would ask me how things are at work... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Alexander B&B for 3 nights. We could not have asked for better hosts than Vera and Roderick. They were so helpful with everything, we felt like we could become very good friends if we were staying a bit longer. Vera helped us with the booking of a ticket for a concert and thanks to... More

Friendly hosts nothing was to much trouble, warm rooms delicious breakfast and very central. I highly recommend it as a place to stay. We managed to use the buses and also go to the cinema and theatre which are all easy to get to with such a great location.

My second trip this Autumn was to this glorious city on the way up north and I found this gorgeous B and B tucked around a quiet corner and a stones throw from the train station. Homely, honest folk with wonderful attention to detail where comfort is concerned. The linen was second to none! Here, as at my previous destination,... More
