“A highlight in Cambridge”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is the second time I have stayed here and I was not disappointed. The place is in an excellent location, is very comfortable and clean. I was in a single room which was small but perfectly adequate and the shower was hot and powerful. the owner and her staff are excellent and breakfast was very good. I have stayed in a few places in Cambridge and this is the best.

I have stayed at Warkworth House as a guest on four different occasions ranging from four to ten nights. My best feeling about this guest house is, to paraphrase an Asian Airline - Warkworth House is people - starting with proprietress Kathleen Colllns and her able staff who have been with her for 20 - 25 years. They care about people and the problems encountered by people while they are guests at the House. They help in any way they can: from just listening to the problems to offering sound advice and actually helping . In many ways, for many guests, it is a home away from home. The location is quite convenient for travel. Being near Parker's Piece as well as being five to 8 minutes from the Grafton Center for some shopping and eateries. The rooms are spartan but homey, well looked after and most satisfactory in their maintenance. If this is what you are looking for in a guest house, you couldn't do any better. I forgot to mention their full English breakfast is as good as it gets. Kudos to Kathleen and her staff.

I stayed here recently with my family and found it absolutely delightful. Clean room, comfortable bed, excellent water pressure in the bathroom and a fabulous breakfast to get the day off to the best start. Mrs Collins was very helpful (and patient!) with all of our various queries, and the location makes it absolutely perfect for that quick dash to the Heathrow Express when it's time to go. More importantly, it's within easy walking distance of everything you'd want to see and do in Cambridge. Thank you for providing such a fabulous place to stay, Mrs Collins!

We chose Warkworth house due to it's central location (close to the college where my daughter is studying), as well as a personal recommendation from my sister-in-law. It was a good choice! Kathleen met us on arrival and made us feel very at home. Location is perfect as it is a short walk from the centre, but also quiet. Clean and comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast. We parked the car out front and left it there until it was time to leave Cambridge and return home. Hope to stay here again in the future.

Central to Cambridge, nothing is too much trouble for the courteous and efficient staff. Clean and comfortable, Warkworth house is exemplary. The breakfasts are made to order from the best produce. The coffee is excellent. My family found it a complete delight and would recommend it without reservations. I imagine a reservation is mandatory!

B&B right in the centre of Cambridge, yet in a quiet location. Can provide (limited) free parking in the street. Nice and comfortable rooms. A little bit of dust though. Friendly, helpful owner. Excellent breakfast. Somewhat expensive, but nothing in Cambridge comes cheap...
