We visited for a weekend and only needed a room with a comfortable bed, en suite and a pleasant breakfast. We got all these at a reasonable rate. This is a B&B without all the extras, but as we didn't need them it was no problem!

We arrived very early, and this was no problem for Elizabeth, who let us into our room, which was very comfortable and spacious. It had everything we needed, it was clean, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom good. Breakfast was good too - no complaints. Elizabeth was very friendly, informative and helpful. The B&B was about a 25 min walk... More

We stayed for 4 nights in this lovely B&B run by the very friendly Elizabeth who couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was welcoming and comfortable. We had a lovely front double bedded room with ensuite shower which was excellent. There was a little bit of noise from the road but it did not disturb our night. Everything was... More

Arlington House is a nicely presented guest house. I booked a 'king double room' on Booking.com for GBP 78. The room was on the smaller side but not excessively cramped, that is to say we could lay a suitcase open on an area of the floor, but elsewhere around the room it was single file movement. The description 'king' doesn't... More

camlady, Owner at Alington House, responded to this review

I am sorry that you feel you had some issues, but I wish you had mentioned the bed size issue to me or at least checked on the internet regarding Australian bed sizes and UK ones, before assuming that the room names were misleading. UK bed sizes are not the same as Australian bed sizes The King room does contains... More

Pros: - the room was clean - there’s a great cheap Indian buffet in the leisure centre, which is about a 10-min walk from the accommodation - it was quiet enough Cons: - the room was really tiny - the description on Booking.com claims it’s 15 minutes to the city centre, which may be, but not on foot. It’s rather... More

Alington House is only a short distance from the city centre, 10 minutes by bus or car, and a 20 minute walk from the train station, or 5 minutes by bus. So while it's out of the city centre, it's location is still convenient. Our host (or in our case, our host's son) was very accommodating and even served up... More

We received a very warm and friendly welcome on our arrival. The room was very comfortable and suited our requirements well. Breakfast was very good. We came to visit Cambridge for a short stay. The location was ideal as we were on a direct bus route to the center of Cambridge. If we were to return to Cambridge again we... More

A perfect place to stay when you want have a good night's sleep in a clean room and a nice breakfast. All for a good price. There is no pool, no bar, no gym (not that I know about). It's just a perfect place to spend the night. The owner is very friendly. I truly recommend Alington House!
