A very pleasant overnight stay booked on a Groupon voucher. We were given a really nice afternoon tea when we arrived, good quality sandwiches and home made cakes and tea and coffee. The room was in the annexe and the room was quite large with a 6 foot bed with excellent pillows and bedding, large flat screen tv, i think... More

I found the Crown House as part of a Groupon deal, which offered excellent value for money, but the B&B is lovely in its own right. The staff were very friendly, the food was excellent and our accommodation very comfortable, with the added extras (tea, coffee, biscuits) that make you feel at home. Great Chesterford itself was very peaceful and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your stay with us. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your meal with us on New Years Eve.

This is an amazing country inn located just south of Cambridge. Royalty and numerous dignitaries have stayed her over the centuries and there is even the whispered rumour of a friendly spirit that lives in the main house. The rooms are very comfortable; the restaurant cooks fresh and only to order - so the menu gets a bit smaller as... More

Friendly hotel with family room at the top of the main house, easy parking. The family room was clean and adequate for a stop over, tea and coffee facilities, large screen TV but with limited channels (very fuzzy except sky and BBC) and wifi. We had to work out the remote control by the bed for the main light switch.Breakfast... More

We booked a room at a nearby hotel which then could not accommodate us so booked us into the Crown House. We were staying in the main house. Our first impressions were that the room was very pretty with a good bathroom. Unfortunately the shower just did not get hot even after 20 minutes of running (as per the instructions... More

Very conveniently situated just down the road from Duxford and not far from Cambridge. A beautiful old house with a lovely garden. Excellent breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our only disappointment was the double bed, which was not really a double bed at all - more like a three quarter bed - and neither of us slept very well.... More
