“Very unfriendly!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012

Myself and my partner just arrived home from our two night stay here, on arrival we had a 10 minute wait to be let inside as no one was around to answer the door bell. When we were finally greeted by a young man there was a big lack of communication as his english was not to the standard needed. Once let in our room we were very disappointed to say the least , 75 pound a night, yet the walls, radiators , doors were all very shabby and in need of a touch up. Altough our ensuite was big the free toiletries that were advertised were just a dispencer in the shower of shower gel / shampoo. The so called 20 minute walk to the city centre is really a 35/40 minute walk. We learnt on our second night there was a bus stop opposite the hotel but the staff were too unapprochable to ask about times so we ended up asking strangers standing at the bus stop. We didn't bother with breakfast as it just felt to uncomfortable and unwelcoming. On our departure we werent even asked how our stay was. Would have been a much better stay if the staff actually cared about their guests!!

The property is on a main road, which is noisy pretty much all night. Unfortunately I had a front room (no 1) and was unable to change despite asking, so slept badly both nights I was there, so afraid have to rate it low.
Other than this problem, place is nice, clean, basic but fine, especially at the price, staff are friendly, breakfast is good.
Location close to train station, shops, restaurants, not far from center, etc

My husband and I have just enjoyed two relaxing days at Bridge Guest House in Cambridge. It is a quaint and traditional B&B which is the perfect location for a quiet retreat. Situated within 2 mins walking distance from the Cambridge Leisure Centre, it is the ideal place for a nice evening out. Also, it is only 20 minutes away from the historical heart of the city (I advise a romantic punt on the river - it's a must!).

The staff warmly welcomed us and were very hospitable. They made sure we were happy with our room and offered additional facilities, such as a hair-dryer and computer access, without charge. Breakfast was lovely, with a selection of cereals and a tasty, full English. Overall, we had a comfortable and enjoyable stay at the guest house.

We caught the coach from London and were dropped in town. A big walk to the B&B but quite doable. Friendly staff, having travelled in Europe the staff being foreign was no problem - a smile goes a long way when communicating Diane L! The breakfast was very nice and we were able to have free access to a computer and the internet. Would recommend staying here - very good price for Cambridge.

Good Location, Friendly welcome, Tasty Breakfast, Cosy Lounge and clean comfortable ensuite room which was basic but a good size. We had room 8 which was at the back of the hotel and as a result we had no disturbance from busy road at the front. We would have liked a second chair in our room and a few hooks or a shelf in the ensuite which could also have benefitted from having the pipes and boiler boxed in. At £75 for the night in what is an expensive city to find accommodation we felt we got what we paid for. We shall stay again.

I just had a 2 night stay and have to say it was comfortable enough and very clean. Staff very helpful and friendly. I had a single upstairs and the ensuite was a bit tight but to be fair it IS just a converted house so can't really complain - at least you don't have to share with anyone else. Breakfast was quite good. I think you get what you pay for. This place is decent enough for a couple night's stay. I'd go there again anyway.

The staff are not friendly or helpful and as they are foreign they have limited understanding of english. To be honest they really do not care about you! We stayed here as it was close to the train station but it is not close to the shops or town centre. I went here because it was my graduation and my husband and 12 year old daughter went also. The bedroom was very dark, filthy and very dated. There was little enough space for a double bed never mind a double and a single. The ensuite was so small and also filthy - the shower cubicle had been broken at one time and the owners had just brutally nailed it together with big clumsy nails. The door into the ensuite did not close and we had to put our suitcase to the door when one of us used the toilet or shower. The breakfast was minimal with little choice. We did notice that the table were all set straight away after breakfast so when you came down for your breakfast the next morning this delph and cutlery had remained on the tables overnight!! My cup was filthy one morning - it had the remains of someone else,s breakfast in it!! Our tv did not work and when we approached a staff member he tried to reset it and when that didnt work he just shook his shoulders and said"It must be the wind". The staff really do not care!! When checking out the manager did not even speak to us or make eye contact - he just wanted to get paid and get us out of there!! If you want a comfortable, enjoyable break away in Cambridge PLEASE, PLEASE take my advice and do not stay in this guest house. We are not a fussy family but when you pay £90 a night we do explect clean facilities, a good breakfast and helpful, friendly staff.
