We had a single night in a very comfortable and quiet room, slept like logs in a comfortable bed, had a lovely breakfast with a wide choice of very well cooked and uncooked food, and helpful advice from our landlady.

I was fortunate to stay here for 2 nights before my Cambridge University classes this summer. Julie was fantastic - she communicated with me as needed before my visit and was extremely welcoming and helpful throughout my stay. The house is lovely and service is wonderful, with a custom breakfast each morning. Julie treats her guests well and enjoys getting... More

This is a pleasant place, although the attic room I got is a bit of a challenge that won't fit everyone, i.e., you may want to ask a non-attic room which is more convenient (a bit larger, less chances of bumping your head, easier to work in). The breakfast is great and so is the service of the owner (?).... More

Julie and award-winning pussycat Bertie were so welcoming, and our room (no. 7) was beautifully appointed. Breakfast this morning was excellent! I think it also speaks well of The Benson House that both our taxi drivers knew it by name when we said where we were headed. We will be sure to recommend this lovely establishment to our friends back... More

We stayed for one night in a double room at the front of the house. We thought it might be noisy but it was fine. The room was immaculately decorated and very comfortable with a good sized en suite bathroom with shower. The breakfast was superb with a large choice. There was parking at the rear of the property.

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Benson House and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our host, Julie, was very welcoming and helpful and made us feel at home. Our bedroom was a beautifully remodeled double bedroom with plush furnishings and all of the amenities of a top rated hotel. Julie is a great cook providing a delicious breakfast ranging... More

Meeting some ex-work colleagues/friends in Cambridge on Friday evening for dinner an a few beers and needed somewhere to stay overnight and did I land lucky? Oh yes!! Benson House was within 10/15 mins from Kings's Parade and offered home from home comforts and the full english breakfast was fab! I would strongly recommend Benson House :)

It was a shame not being able to stay longer. I was at Benson House just for 1 night for a bizz trip, and I was so happy I didn't go to any of those impersonal big hotels. The place is cozy, the rooms are inviting and cute, and the service provided by Julie is great. I have to say,... More

We spent nine nights in the larger double room. The breakfasts are delicious and the breakfast room is lovely. Julia, the proprietor, takes excellent care of her guests and is a joy to visit with. Rooms are very quiet, very clean, and very comfortable. We will certainly return the next time we are in Cambridge.
