Stayed for two nights during a weekend, very peaceful and nice. Continental breakfast had lots to choose from, and the coffee was very good - a nice change from all the instant coffee you normally get in the UK.

We stayed at Alington House for three nights while visiting friends in Cambridge and had a very nice stay. The owners were very friendly and the B&B is nice and very family-run - we found it welcoming but not as polished as a very professionally-run place. Our room was nice and bright, it had all the usual amenities, and the bed was very comfortable. Our bathroom was great. The breakfast was continental and included a choice of almost 20 cereals, and as much toast/jam/butter and tea/coffee as we could eat. We had a great stay.

I´ve been living in U.K. for more than nine years now and I have been lots of times in B&B before and after this issue. My sister and I decided to go to Cambridge to spend one week over there. I booked the room for two of us a few days in advance. I picked up my sister in the airport and two of us headed to this B&B. It was around 10 a.m. when we arrived to the B&B. It was 14th February and extremely cold. When we arrived the lady owner of this B&B told us that the check-in was not until 12:00 and that the room was not ready yet. She told us that we should come back at 12:00. We found this understandable because it is like that in most of hotels and B&B so we went for a coffee and after wandering around being extremely cold and tired, we came back to this B&B Alington House at 12:30. When this lady opened the door and saw us she told us again that the room was not ready yet in a very rude way. Before her unpolite manners the situation became very uncomfortable for my sister and me. Even though, we decided to wait for our room inside the B&B where the tables where they serve the breakfast are. When it was already more than 14:00 I stood up and went to speak again with this lady and at that moment she started shouting at me like a crazy person (literally) saying that the room was not ready and if I carried on asking she would take much longer. After that "where is the camera hidden" moment my sister and I decided to leave that B&B feeling really insulted and humilliated by this woman owner of this Alington House. So after that we had to wander around being frozen outdoors and carrying our suitcases in order to look for another place where to stay after having been waiting for so many hours to get that room that was never ready. I felt hugely insulted and impotent because of the situation that lady put us through. On top of that, during the time that we were waiting inside the room where they serve the breakfast which is connected with the kitchen we could notice that there was a very big dog getting in and out the kitchen and this room where the food is served all the time which means a lack of hygienic too.

It would be nice if the reviews were limited to guests who actually stayed. These guests were very annoyed that their room wasn't ready when they arrived; it was before check-in time and the previous guests had even left yet. They wanted to go out rather than wait and so I let them leave their luggage. When they came back a short time later, it was still way before check-in time and the room wasn't quite ready, I apologised, but they were very angry - 'like a crazy person'- and stormed off. I think their review is due to their anger in not finding suitable accommodation after walking out- it was graduation week.

I've been guest for more than 10 days and I can confirm that is it's a clean and tidy guest house.
Thank you also to the ownership for their friendship welcome.
