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

My fiance and I moved to Cambridge recently, and stayed at Alexander Bed and Breakfast for three weeks while we were setting up. The room was comfortable, cheery and clean. The location could not be more convenient - less than a five minute walk to the train station, and less than ten minutes to the city center. Mill Road is... More

What a breath of fresh air! After hours upon hours of traveling and stressful driving what a welcoming place to come "home" to! Vera, Roderick and Michael were beyond words. They were very welcoming, helpful, warm, knowledgeable and accommodating. As I was with my aunt and uncle I stayed in the upstairs bedroom so they could have the bigger room... More

Generally, when travelling to a new destination, location is top priority. As this is an excellent location, my biggest surprise was how quickly Vera and Roderick made us feel at home. They are so committed to their community, doing admirable charity works "for kids who's parents are rubbish". In addition to having lived there over 20 years, this commitment has... More

I stayed for five days at Alexander Bed & Breakfast. Some BIG positives for the location are that it is walking distance from National Express Coach station, from Railway station, to Anglia Ruskin University and to the historic town center. It is located off Mill Road, which has several small supermarkets and restaurants from all the parts of the world.... More

We stayed with Vera and Roderick for over a week, before moving into permanent accommodation in Cambridge. It couldn't be any better. They were really friendly and made us feel at home right away. As I'm a very early riser, I was able to simply help myself to whatever I wanted for breakfast at a time convenient for me. Thankfully,... More

This is a truly wonderful B&B with wonderful proprietors and a great location. I would give it more stars if I could. The rooms are clean, cute, and very comfortable. There was always fresh fruit, yogurt, a nice assortment of cereals, ham, cheeses, and bread for the morning---and always nicely laid out. The proprietors would always ask if I wanted... More

This is the worst B&B I have ever stayed. When I booked this B&B, they even did not send me confirmation of deposit paid. I had to ask for it. The owners are very arrogant and rude. When I arrived at the B&B, they appeared with their dinner in hand! I do not think this is the appropriate way to... More

This B&B is right near the train station (2-3 blocks) and easy walk to all areas of Cambridge. The owners are very nice and super helpful in exploring the city. There are tons of restaurants & convenience stores right around the corner, and pubs everywhere. The rooms were clean & tidy. Breakfast was great as well, and served on our... More
