We enjoyed our visit to Cambridge and the Home from Home B&B. We stayed in the 2-guest-bedrooms Bungalow part of the B&B. The other room was ensuite, so we basically had the other bath to ourselves, which worked for us. Kevin(??), our host, proved very knowledgeable about the local restaurants and Cambridge in general, and provided excellent guidance and suggestions. He and his wife Violet(??) work hard to provide an excellent B&B experience to their guests. I'm hoping I got their names right! Apologies to them if I didn't, but thank you for your excellent B&B. Home From Home has its own parking lot, too!

Room Tip: We really liked the bungalow room we had. It's off the street, close to the kitchen, and has ea...

Great location, REALLY comfy beds and pillows, nicely furnished rooms, SUPER friendly staff and WONERFUL breakfasts - both veggie and non-veggie! Yummy!!! Only thing I'd say, if you want a lie in, stay in the main building and not in the bungalow where breakfast is served - but that was fine for us, as it meant we had more time searching beautiful Cambridge :-)

After some slight confusion of our arrival time, we made it to Home from Home and the owner was kindly waiting for us more than two hours after posted check-in. He very kindly showed us to our attic room and carried my suitcase all the way up. The room was very quaint, clean and quite comfortable with all the amenities one would want or expect. Bathroom was quite large. He recommended a wonderful Indian restaurant right down the street for us to dine at. The next morning, we went down to the dining area where we had a wonderful breakfast. Although he is not a trained chef, his 20 years of experience have taught him much in food,preparation, from variety to flavor to restaurant quality presentation. It was truly a wonderful place to stay and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Cambridge.

Stayed at the family room. Were surprised how large it was - two separate rooms, with a kitchen unit. Perfect for our family! The room was spotlessly clean. The decor was very much 1980s' style. But we didn't mind too much.

Breakfast was one of the best I ever had in a b&b - amazingly fresh and fun fruit salad, variety of omelettes, smoked salmon, etc.

A wonderful stay. The hosts were attentive, polite and the rooms was very clean. Breakfast was good and there was adequate choice as well. Only a 15 min walk into Cambridge town centre which was needed after a big feed!

Faultless and friendly. Great advert for British hospitality and made an unscheduled business stopover most pleasant. Much of Cambridge is overpriced but this place is great value. Thanks to Vince and his team!

We stayed here last week for one night having done lots of research on trip advisor. Everything written so far is accurate. Home from Home is conveniently placed for the centre of Cambridge being roughly a ten min walk from Magdalene Street along the Cam or main road ( please note that the foot bridge from the main street is closed for renovation at the moment, so you need to cross Victoria Street by Barclays Bank near the B and B if you want to get down to the tow path).
The room at the B and B was clean and spacious and the owner was friendly, and couldn't do enough to help us with local info, maps and directions. The breakfast was one of the best I've ever had at a B and B with a huge amount of choice and the most delicious fresh fruit salad. However, the main problem is, as stated by others on Trip Advisor, that if you are put in the bungalow at the back, as we were, you get woken up from the minute that the key turns in the door at 7.15 am, which is fine if you want an early start, but not if you want a lie in like we wanted! The kitchen, breakfast room and office are all in the bungalow, so the clattering and talking starts with preparations for the day. My advice - do stay here, but request a bedroom in the main house!

Room Tip: Stick to the main house
