    Very good for what it is. Unpretentious and up to a better than normal standard of cleanliness and helpfulness than usual for a Guest House of this type. Very good location and convenient for sightseeing in the old centre of Cambridge.More

    Basic accommodation, good overall, helpful staff, have tea coffee and biscuits in room, but no breakfast which was no problem anyway. Bike hire available, useful for getting around and sightseeing, the bikes had baskets which was handy. Very useful location for river and centre.

    Lantern House was shoddy, smelled of mildew, the stairs to the attic were positively dangerous (you had to keep your feet sideways to avoid half your foot overhanging each step), and the owner was objectionable. However, far worse than that, he was also not averse...More
