I spent 14 days in July 2014 at the guesthouse. The staff is very helpful and polite, the guest house is over all clean, quiet and inexpensive. About 4 miles from the centre of Cambridge, bus citi7 stopped right outside the guest house, routes every 20 minutes at daytime. Supermarket Waitrose about 10 minutes walk away, a small food and...

This small hotel is a great place to stay if you're visiting Cambridge. Spotlessly clean, friendly staff, delicious and filling breakfasts. 10/10 this hotel gets from me. Bus to Cambridge City Centre is right outside the hotel and they are every 15 minutes.

Booked here for its proximity to Addenbrookes Hospital. Arrived quite late in the evening but were still greeted by friendly staff. Room was clean and all that I needed with a wonderful selection for breakfast. Will definitely book here next time I am up this way.

I booked this B&B because of its review and I had no regret. The moment I called to inform that I would be checking in a bit late, the lady greeted me warmly, kept telling me not to worry and just drive safely. After a long drive from Edinburgh, we arrived with warm welcome and quick checking in. She always... More

Faisal and the team were very accomodating, we had a great laugh with you all! The rooms were clean and the garden area was wonderful for drinks in the sunshine (just watch out for the occasional falling acorn or two!)

I chose to book a room at this hotel mostly for the convenience of it's location, as I don't drive having a bus stop into the city centre right outside was perfect, but really I would stay here again even without this. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly, the room was beautiful and breakfast was delicious. We'll... More

Simple accom, welcoming staff. Large spacious room. Very Clean and tidy bathroom. Very happy with the facilities that were there. However the laundry service is quite expensive and with no self service laundromat close by, this was quite an inconvenience. Breakfast starting at 730 is far too late, especially with the coffee machine not being on until 630am. If it... More

My family and I stayed at this copacetic bed and breakfast for one night. The lady who greeted us at reception was simply charming and made us feel very welcome. We were then shown to the large family room. However, the room was stiflingly hot so we had to shut off the radiator and throw the windows wide. In the... More

we stayed as a family for two nights on a visit to Cambridge. We found the staff very friendly and attentive and the whole of the guest house was spotless. We had the large family room overlooking the garden which was very quiet and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was lovely, and we were able to eat our take away... More
