This old style B and B is very convenient for the station (five minutes walk maximum). Anthony the Manager was very efficient and easy to liaise with. Breakfast service was good. The room was old fashioned in décor and the shower a little temperamental but the room was clean with all the usual amenities (tv, tea making facilities, toiletries/shower cap/towels... More

I had a lovely stay at this hotel. The breakfast was good although it would have been nice to have some fresh fruit and yogurts avalible. The room was just what I needed and lovely and warm too considering how cold its been. Not far to walk from the station or far to walk from the town but easy enough... More

I visited Cambridge because it's near Duxford Air Museum. I wanted a hotel near the railway station and this is near. Pretty basic place, more of a B & B. 15 minutes walk to the centre of the city. Nice staff, room was moderate but clean and everything worked. Free wifi.

Stayed early September, a very warm and friendly welcome, was offered a down stairs room which I was very grateful for as I had a very heavy suitcase, very clean, bed very comfy, slept well, breakfast was freshly cooked, will definitely be staying there again when I am next in Cambridge

We recently stayed here due to its convenient location. It is within a short walk to the city centre and Anglia Ruskin University and the many colleges of Cambridge University. The room we had was very comfortable, it had a double bed plus two singles. There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room. It was very clean and... More

I have spent a couple of nights with my family in this charming and reasonably priced guest house. It is very close to the railway station and 15/20 minutes walking from the city center, so it is very conveniently located. The staff is very professional, friendly and helpful. The room was big, comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was very good,... More

We are pleased that this guest left as a satisfied customer, who felt he had made a good choice. The accommodation had been booked and paid for by bank transfer, long in advance of the family's stay. As the old proverb goes: "The proof is in the pudding". We make every effort to maintain good standards of cleanliness, service &... More

Perfect. Great value for money and very... More

Paid £75 for a huge room, there were just two of us but could easily have slept 4 comfortably. Very friendly service, great breakfast with a wide choice, good location for jumping off the train dropping off the bags and a quick cab into the City centre, although you could walk in about 20 mins. Would stay again.

We appreciate this guest's comprehensive review which is largely positive and at the same time provides very good feedback. The problem with the shower flow was reported by the housekeeper the following day and turned out to be caused by a loose washer - forgive the pun!. If it had been reported earlier, we would have deal with it immediately.... More
