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

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
