Fairways Guest House is a 5 minute walk from Cambridge railway station and is very close to the city centre, being about a 20 minute walk. The proprietors of the guest house are very welcoming and friendly and will be pleased to answer any questions you might have. The rooms themselves are clean and the shower worked well. The price...

My husband and I visited Cambridge for business (job interview) and booked a couple of nights at Fairways because it was the least expensive room we could find that was still available. The room was pretty basic with older carpets, not much decor, and mostly everything was brown: brown carpets, bedding, etc. We didn't care for the smell in the... More

We chose Fairways Guest House to stay in Cambridge because breakfast is not included, which meant that we did not eat a high calorie "Full English" meal at the start of the day just because it was on the offering. The guest house is very reasonably priced. Our room was very comfortable with an en suite, a good size and... More

I have stayed at Fairways a few times on my visits to Cambridge and would defiantly stay again, they have up dated the rooms since i first went there and they now have a more airy feeling. The breakfast is very nice and there is quite a lot of choice, The staff are friendly and helpful and my room was... More

My first impression of fairways was one of "it looks nothing like the photo's". There was a funny smell, of a smell covering a smell. My single room was tiny, and the decoration was unimaginative. Brown bed cover, brown curtains, and grey carpet. The carpet extended into the bathroom. Which I felt was odd. Tiles would have looked cleaner, and... More

Hotel was clean and comfortable with good secure parking. Owners were welcoming but not over enthusaistic. Breakfast was good but the dining room is like a time warp, in truth the whole place could do with a bit of a makeover, but it's fine for a one night stop.

We chose this B&B out of many that were available in the area, based on good reviews we'd read online. When we arrived at 6pm the landlady wasn't very welcoming (Not even a "hello") & there was an over-powering smell of cooking. We were asked for payment immediately, we weren't shown to our room just told we were in room... More

Friendly proprietors and good parking. Unusual in that full payment is required on arrival. Room would be OK for price but my single bed sloped sideways and the shower hose needed replacing: it kept kinking so that the water flow stopped - it took forever to have a shower. There was nowhere in the cramped shower cublcle to rest soap... More
