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...

Hotel felt quite old. The room was small. The bed was comfortable with multiple blankets so it was warm enough. The shower was not working properly - for moments there was no hot water. The breakfast had to be ordered and there was 3 options to choose from - traditional english, cereals or boiled egg with toasted bread. The hotel...
