I booked this up for myself and three friends (booking up two twin rooms) as we were all coming up for a hen party. Not a problem for the lovely owner Sue.
The B&B is on the main road out of Royston (towards Cambridge) and is about a ten minute walk into Royston town centre. A cab cost us £3.40 to give you an idea!

The B&B is clean and tidy, the rooms spacious and comfortable - we actually had a large room that could sleep four - just for two of us, which was a lovely treat enabling us to get ready without stepping on each other and it meant that the other girls could also come in and have a drink with us before we could go out.
Our room was towards the back of the house and was very quiet - we had the windows open all night. Rooms have blinds and curtains, so you can have a dark room if you dont like to be woken up when the sun comes up as I dont!
Breakfast in the morning is cereal and toast, or for an addditional £5 you can have a full english on top of this - just what we needed and Sue was kind enough to make it as late as she could for us as we came home in the early hours. Sunday was late check out and we left at about half 11.

Couldnt recommend enough - would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a large room if they have one free

We stayed here for our sons passing out parade at Bassingbourn Barracks on the 14th May. Sue the owner was very helpful. We were comfortable in our bedroom and had a good sleep that night.After a log journey from Scotland it was very welcome.
In the morning i had a basic breakfast which was all i wanted.Sue made sure that we had enough to eat and asked if we would like anymore!!!!!!!!!! My husband and daughter had the full English breakfast which they enjoyed very much. Sue is a very pleasant person. I felt she let us treat her house as if it like being at home.

Rooms are clean and nicely decorated - the welcome is warm and friendly. If you are looking for a simple place to spend a night or two without paying hotel prices, you will not be disappointed here. It's a good idea to offer a light breakfast as I often resent paying for a full English when I just want some cereal and toast - Sue does offer this as an extra though!

Our son was training at Bassingbourn Barracks and we had to find a B&B in Royston.
We stayed at Magnolia House with Sue Cook.
There were 4 of us ...and we stayed in her family room. It was beautiful...with high standards of cleanliness and decor.
Nothing was any trouble and the cooked breakfasts were amazing !!!! We sat in Sues garden and made friends with her 2 springer spaniels ...Harry and Norman ! (Fab wee dogs!)
Excellent value for money ...beautiful house and Sue is a genuinely friendly person who looks after you while in Royston !
A BIG thank you to her for an enjoyable stay .
