“Very nice place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

This was a great little place with a convenient location and free parking. The staff was really nice too. The breakfast was really good. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was because we were there during an unusual heat wave and got placed in a room on the top level of the house, which would normally probably have been fine, but it was uncomfortable hot. They were really nice to provide us with a fan, but it was extremely hot in the bathroom because of the skylight. Other than that, it was really really great.

Having surfed for some time we eventually found this lovely guesthouse. Much cheaper than the others we could find, AND with free parking (some were charging £19 per day!), we decided to stay. We could not have felt more welcome- the breakfast was really nice, and the young lady who dealt with us throughout was so polite and very friendly. We found Cambridge centre to be 20 minutes walk away, an easy stroll, and the transport links to the hotel very easy. We will definitely stay again when we come back, and have already recommended to friends and family. Thank you!!!

If you are looking for affordable accommodation within 10 minute walk to the centre of Cambridge then you can't beat A&B Guesthouse. Nice hosts, clean room, comfy bed and great breakfast (more beans please!).

I thought this guesthouse was pretty good. The proprietor and her husband were helpful and allowed us to leave our luggage with them for part of the day that we checked out. The breakfasts were tasty and there was plenty of food available in the mornings. The only thing to be mindful of is that if you are a North American, you might want to spring for one of their larger rooms. The room that we were in was on the top floor and so the beams from the roof made the room feel quite small (see photos already uploaded). The bathroom was also very small. All in all, good value for money - if I had more, I would have opted for a larger room on the 2nd floor.

Room Tip: Opt for a bigger room if available.

Stayed here on a business trip, the location near the train station was good as I arrived by train and was happy to walk into town after doing my bags off. Staff were very friendly and would stay here again.

First time visited Cambridge and chose A&B Guest house to stay for 2 nights. First of all, very good location, just 5 minutes walking from the train station, which I found really comfortable when coming by train almost in the midnight. (Walking to the city center just 15 minutes)
Although I arrived pretty late, stuff was waiting for me to check- in, showed me the room and also gave the map of the city recommending best places to see. Big plus - reachable wifi connection, could check emails, use web.
Room was warm and welcoming. Everything clean and tidy, as I always pay attention for this, hate when for example the bathroom is not cleaned properly. Breakfast was very good, could choose between full English (which I also tried, as never done before), vegetarian or continental. Good coffee, tea with milk, juice, fruit salads, yogurt and flakes with milk. Everything was fresh and stuff was very kind and helpful. Very nice atmosphere.
Recommend to stay there, they are really a friendly guesthouse, signboard doesn`t tell lies. Price fits to the service.

A&B Guest house is very close to train station and only 10 minutes walking distance from town center. I came to Cambridge to learn English and stayed here for couple of weeks. I was happy with service and breakfast menu which offered fresh fruit salad and continental breakfast. The room size was fair for single room. I appreciate that the guest house is very quiet so it was easy for me to study. What I found strange is that reception is open only in the morning and evening, so there is nobody in the afternoon. But I would not call it a minus. Overall, I was happy and would recommend this guest house to anybody.

Room Tip: Nr2 for solo travelers
