“Fine Spot and Wonderful Service!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

I just returned from Benson house in Cambridge. Julie is the person taking care of the guests at Benson House, and I felt our stay was perfect in every way. The location was perfect for us--just half a block from Saint Edmunds College (Cambridge Univ). It is also just across the street from Fitzwilliam College. The centre of town was just over 5 minutes walk from Benson House. Our room was comfortable and quiet. The shower was hot with a large volume of water in a newly refurbished bathroom. The towels were even heated. Julie's breakfast was substantial. We found no reason to eat lunch after eating at Benson house. There are not enough good things to say about Benson House. We were fully satisfied and more.

Room Tip: We are returning to Cambridge and Benson House in October with many family members, so Julie showed...

From the outside of this plain row house you'd never have any idea what well appointed rooms and wonderful breakfasts are behind that facade. Was visiting with an old friend for a Cambridge graduation and our both rooms were great. Not necessarily huge, but fitted out with the quality of a very nice hotel. An easy walk to downtown and the colleges.

Room Tip: Rooms vary in side, but web site will guide you.

We stayed just 1 night (21 May) at ths B&B and found our ensuite room to be well appointed, comfortable, clean and on the ground floor level, which was great considering we had 2 very heavy suit cases and a couple of cabin bags to carry around. Julie's greeting when we arrived was friendly and efficient and she took our car and parked it for us at the rear of the B&B. The provided breakfast choices were good and cooked to order. Benson House is conveniently located to central Cambridge, about a 10 minute walk. Overall, a comfortable and efficiently run B&B in which to stay.

My sone an I shared a twin room for a 2 night stay for a weekend brek in Cambridge. Julie is helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were good, although the room is a bit crowded. We walked into the towncentre in 15 minutes with no problems. Benson house ia a taxi ride from the station as it's on the opposite side of town.

Room Tip: the rooms at the front overlook the main road

We had been booked in a B&B In Cambridge but the standard was not of our taste. We called in at the tourist information office for a booklet on the accomedation around Cambrige and called the land lady of Benson House and she told us that she had room.
We got to the guest house and found a real dimond gem it is tastfully decorated,Very clean,superb breakfasts,great service and a wonderfully warm host.
We shall definatley will be returning to Benson House in the future.
Many Thanks once again making our stay a most enjoyable one.
