“What a breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

Found this by following a recommendation i Rough Guide. Excellent – even more so since we got a suite for just the double room price, since the double rooms were all occupied. Quiet location. Large first floor bedroom with garden outside the window, sitting room with tv, breakfast – and what a breakfast, it included everything and more – in the glass veranda. Very friendly landlord, who even offered to come to collect us in central Cambridge, since Worth House is some 40 minutes walk (along river and over greens) to the colleges. Definitely one of the three best b&B's we encountered in our two week trip to England.

I have always felt a bit doubtful about B & B, generally preferring a Premier Inn for a quick stay somewhere. How wrong could I have been. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else if I have occasion to return to Cambridge. We stayed in a beautifully appointed first floor bedroom with a bay window at the front of the property. On a main road, but double glazing made it a quiet room. Clearly recently refurbished to a very high standard. All the soft furnishings were lovely. Comfy large bed with plenty of pillows. Good sized tv with sofas to sit on. Bottled water on our beside tables and a vast array of choice on the tea/coffee tray. En suite immaculate. Everything was provided down to to flannels and bathrobes! There was even an emergency box with a razor and deodorant and other items in. We were left a map of Cambridge which had been personally marked with our location and the easiest walks in to the centre. There was also excellent parking to the rear. And now to breakfast! I think I can definitely say that it was the best breakfast I have had whilst away from home. Lots of choice. I chose an omelette with bacon, cheese, mushroom and parsley. I can only desribe it as perfect. I also enjoyed toast and greengage preserve. There was a toaster on each table so you could make your own hot toast! Maria and Guido could not have done any more to make our stay perfect. Very welcoming and friendly hosts. A most enjoyable stay, shame it was only one night!

Room Tip: We loved Room number 5, but looking at other visitor's reviews, I don't think it would matte...

Had a wonderful stay at this bed and breakfast. Guido and Maria are the hosts and are so accommodating and helpful. Very nice people. The breakfasts are great. Pots of coffee and tea, fresh orange juice and mango smoothies, cereals, fresh fruits,eggs made to offer. You really can not ask for anything better. The rooms are a nice size, very clean, very comfortable beds, en suite bathrooms with small sitting area where you can make yourself some tea. Delicious cookies are placed there each day. Would highly recommend this bed and breakfast and would definitely stay here again.

Really great value for money, had a great stay. Both hosts were super friendly and accommodating including cooking me a second breakfast because I enjoyed the first one so much. Would definitely stay there again, especially if I get room number 6. Superb.

i have stayed 4 B&B while i was traveling in the uk with my friends, and this one is the best with no doubt! We were there late for check in as we have lost the way while driving to Cambridge. The owner kindly sent us txt message about the details for check in and parking.

We all loved the room decoration , very comfortable bed, nice and clean bathroom... Feels like home. And we all loved the breakfast very much! Nice and fresh fruit and croissant, many choices of jam and cereal. Way much more better than other B&B i have stayed! And the owner is very friendly, and warm welcome!

Everything is perfect! We would recommend the worth house to anyone visiting Cambridge.

From the moment we arrived at Worth House we felt like we had known Guido all our lives. His welcome was very friendly & genuine. The room was spotless & very tastefully decorated, and nothing was too much trouble - we only had to ask. At breakfast we met Maria, the other half of this fantastic couple, who also cooked the best breakfast we have had anywhere in the UK.
Guido & Maria set a very high standard in hospitality which other establishments can only dream of. This is the only place to stay in Cambridge for us.

Worth House is a great B and B about twenty minutes walk into Cambridge. Our room was large and spotless. The price was good. I had breakfast one morning and it was very lovely and fresh and, this will be my only complaint, having breakfast over and done with by 915 am on a weekend is far too early by anyone's standards. Friends of ours were staying at another B and B and delighted in telling us that breakfast in their place was served until 11am. It makes a huge difference being able to have a lie in when you are away. Unfortunately because of that I wouldn't choose to stay there again. Of course, if you are an early risers than it makes no difference and you will have a lovely stay!
