Harry's Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #37 of 124 Cambridge B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Stayed here for one night while attending a wedding at Jesus college. Great location, very comfy rooms, friendly welcome and good breakfast. What more could you want! Woud certainly recommend for any visit to Cambridge - good central location, nice accommodation and great breakfast....

We stayed just the one night but it was very enjoyable. We've stayed in other B&Bs in Cambridge but Harry's was the best by far, so much so that we would just go back here in future. It's OK for Cambridge city centre as long as you don't mind walking - maybe 2 minutes but along the Cam or across Jesus Green, so very plesant.

The rooms are well laid out, with a lot of nice touches, such as the quality of the tea and coffee and biscuits. They aren't huge but are adequate, well decorated and clean and tidy.

The breakfast was really nice, tasty and plentiful - coffee was excellent (better than most hotels provide!).

Parking could be an issue, only space for three cars but we squeezed ours in. The only real criticism is the shower, which wasn't terribly hot and wasn't brilliantly positioned. Bottom line is we'll go back there no problem

We spent a Saturday night and Sunday morning here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Chris and his partner (?) were very welcoming and helpful. Our room was clean, the bed very comfortable and the breakfast excellent. Only quibble was that there were no drinking glasses in the room and the long-life little things of milk were well past their sell-by date. Nonetheless, we would definitely go back.

This Bed and Breakfast DEFINITELY isn't 5 stars.We have stayed at many bed and breakfasts and were very disappointed. Usually the advice we find on trip advisor is helpful, not this time. When we arrived there was a sign on the door to call a number. As we are from America that meant paying international charges. The owners live down the street. This was an issue because when we needed anything we had to walk down the street and knock on their door. They were very nice and helpful but it was a huge inconvenience. We are also used to having a nice sitting area in a bed and breakfast like a living room or patio. At Harry's there is none. Also, our room had a large window with no covering. As it was summer the sun rose around 5:00 am. I do believe that in the past it was run better but due to family illness it has changed. I feel it's too much for Chris to run alone. We were told when we arrived that he had to take his son to school in the morning because his wife was busy. We had to schedule the time we would eat breakfast around when it was convenient for him. He's a very nice man but needs help running this bed and breakfast.

I booked this at the last minute for a one night stop whilst attending a conference, so wasn't expecting too much. I was encouraged however by the reviews I read, and thankfully the B+B was every bit as good as they said. Service was excellent, the room and dining room tastefully and thoughtfully furnished, and the breakfast was of a very high standard. I would return, for sure.

Stayed here for one night while in Cambridge on business. Service from Chris was excellent and very efficient; the room was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished; breakfast was a well cooked full english. All in all, well recommended for the price.

Chris, the operator of Harry's, couldn't be nicer. He remembered our breakfast orders from the previous day and had food waiting for us when we came down in the morning. Everything was cozy and comfortable. It was quite convenient to the city center and to the university.
