My wife and I stayed here recently. The room was clean and comfortable enough but the shower room and toilet are the size of a broom cupboard, and the toilet was not very clean. On the outside of the building it shows a rating of 4 stars (from visitengland.com). I'm not sure if their star rating system is the same...

We stayed just one night as we were going to the theatre and for a meal afterwards, room was nice, had a comfortable bed, tea and coffee making, lovely shower although in quite a small space, television. Breakfast was nice and the owner was attentive, however there was limited parking but you can leave the car in the lane at...

Firstly, I was not put in a room in the actual house but a sort of converted garage round the back. The room was clean enough, though the peeling wall-paper and cheap furnishings didn't lead to a very great atmosphere. The mattress was comfortable even if the sheets weren't, but sleep was easy to find as it is quiet here....

Stayed for two nights and found the room clean and bed comfortable. Good size TV Although didn't have time for breakfast it looked good. Would recommend for a good value stay in Cambridge which can be very expensive.

Stayed here with my partner and 2 other couples for long weekend. We thought it value for money, clean rooms, comfy beds and everything you would expect in your average guest house. Yes the bathroom is small but perfectly ok. Our breakfasts were lovely and the owner very attentive. Lovely easy walk into the centre of town along the river....

Nice room but breakfast disgusting, everything burned, bacon so crispy it made my gum bleed and egg so well cooked there was absolutely no yoke left, not sure why they felt this was acceptable, I noticed others were given very decent looking breakfasts, I could have complained but I was so embarrassed and mortified I didn't feel able to. When...

Lovely guesthouse located within a 15min walk to the centre of Cambridge. The guesthouse staff and owner couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Our room was very comfortable and had recently been decorated. Would definitely stay again.

When we arrived we were disappointed with the rear of the building. It needs attention as not presentable. Parking was very tight in the car park which fitted 3-4 cars but you could park on the road at the back. We had a lovely welcome and was shown to our room. The room was not a bad size for a...

Can't quite get what the other reviewers are saying. The rooms aren't massive but then if you're visiting a place like Cambridge why are you staying so much in your room? You only use it to sleep and wash!! The breakfast was great, owners very friendly and helpful and the location is perfect for getting into the town centre and...
