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.

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

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.

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 :)
