Our room was very comfortable, a good sized bed for two! The adjacent bathroom was of a high standard. I would recommend a a stay here. Price very fair given... More

A lovely little place in easy and scenic reach of everything you need for a great break in Cambridge. Walk along the river to the town centre or 15mins quiet walk to the quirkier pubs and restaurants of Mill Road. Host friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable but not "in your face". Accommodation comfy, big bed, decent shower or bath with plenty... More

This has to be the most welcome I've felt at and B&B/hotel. The room was superb; spacious, bright, well-lit and a nice bed. And the bathroom was even better, a stand-alone bath and again, spacious. We timed it at 20 minutes to walk from the hotel to the city centre through nice parks (lit with decorative lighting at night), but... More

We stayed here for the night when visiting Cambridge last week, and were warmly welcomed by Janet into her comfortable and peaceful home. Situated within walking distance from the centre of Cambridge, White Cottages is in the perfect location for quick access to the buzz of the city but without the noise. Both bedroom and bathroom were tastefully decorated, and... More

It’s my second time I stayed in the White Cottages B&B and if I visit Cambridge again I would definitely go there for a third time! There is something special about this place - it is cosy, beautifully decorated, the garden is amazing and just as everything in Cambridge it creates a special atmosphere. The room has the ideal size,... More

If you are a couple who likes a place that offers something a bit different, is tastefully decorated and enjoy being hosted by someone who really knows the local secrets, White cottages is for you. We spent three days in White cottages, with Janet as host and agree with all the other positive TA reviews. We chose it based on... More

Stayed with my girlfriend for an event at the Corn Exchange, Cambridge. Host was lovely, and room was perfect. Great breakfast. Easy walking distance into town. Availability of cheap parking was a major bonus. Would recommend to anyone staying in Cambridge.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
White Cottages Guest Room is situated just a 5 minute drive away from the historical city centre of Cambridge; a 15 min short walk beside the boat houses will lead you into the heart of the beautiful city of Cambridge. The cottage is bijou with a separate bathroom for your use ( cottages rarely have an en suite) The comfortable double guest bedroom is also used for single guests. Visitors are often on the run so I no longer do a cooked English breakfast guests often prefer to get out and try all the local places like Aunties Tea rooms I offer a light self service picnic breakfast £5 per person if required which can be taken out or eaten in. The renovated kitchen offers guests the use of a fridge. Drinks can be made in the cottage kitchen at any time. The bedroom is spacious and has a TV and Wi-Fi connection. Rates: £75 per night for two people £40 per night for a single.daily housekeeping is provided with a light laundry service. See the gallery for more photos of the accommodation. There are no fixed times for arriving or leaving your room. In fact, the room is yours for the last day while you spend the final few hours exploring the city. Take a short bus ride from the station number 3 Fisons Road your stop is Elizabeth Way.40 minutes by road from Stansted Airport. I am an experienced tour guide and offer a lot of information about the medieval city. You are most welcome!. ... more   less
