Very friendly and helpful staff. Room I had was very large in an older style. Bathroom OK and kitchen area were clean. If you get a room with an adjoining door don't expect it to be quite if people staying but if you want plenty of space then this is a great option. Pretty outlook over pool area and didn't... More

Although the motel is somewhat dated it provided us with plenty of space for luggage and a reasonably comfortable bed (although with such a large studio room a king size bed would have been perhaps a better option. The motel was very clean and everything we could want was there. Reception were helpful and courteous. Had a swimming pool.

Nice place to stay on the way South. Huge rooms with the opportunity to cook. Bathroom quite new and very clean. Bed comfortable as well. The staff was really friendly and gave us a Lot of recommendations. The town itself is quite Nice but actually only a One Night stay.

We have stayed a number of times at Captains Quarters and on each and every occasion we have been impressed. The rooms are spacious, clean and tidy, they are a little dated but to be honest the space makes up for this. The owners go out of their way to ensure that your stay is a pleasant one. I would...

Spotless room, bathroom and appurtenances. Architecturally both bland and somewhat quirky owing to its Spanish arches style it opens to capacious internal comforts, including a cute kitchenette, along with furniture to suit all 3 bears and Goldilocks if such a family should stay over. What it lacks in style it makes up for in mechanics: all the lights switch on,... More

I can highly recommend Captain's Quarters as an accommodation option in Cambridge. I've stayed at a few places around the area and this is my favourite. The rooms are nice, clean, and have everything you need. The service is fantastic. There is a pool and all in all its a very quiet place to unwind.

We stayed here for a night in January. Huge room, comfortable beds, sparkling clean pool and washer / drier for guests which was great as we had been travelling for 10 days. The place is dated, but the bathrooms have been modernised and it's super clean. It's well situated up a long driveway off the main road and totally quiet.... More

It was 9.30pm and we had to find accommodation in Cambridge. Phoned the Captain's Quarters Motor Inn and got a very pleasant and helpful man on the phone. He was happy that we were still 40 mins away. The owners were waiting when we arrived with a smile. Our room was basic but had everything we needed, liked the large... More

Our weekend stay here was great. The unit we had was very quiet and comfortable giving us two good sleeps. We appreciated the generously sized room which gave us plenty of room for our travel bags etc so we weren't tripping over them as some times happens in smaller sized rooms. The unit provided all that we required and was... More
