“B&B in Cambridge? Stay here!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Autumn House B&B is unbeatable in every way. Cleanliness, décor. comfort, nothing has been overlooked. The breakfast is second to none, cooked freshly to your order, and the choice will suit everyone. The owners Sharon and Al de Luca are excellent hosts and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed for five days and never had to use our car for the short journey into Cambridge centre. The bus stop is 100 yards away with a frequent service. Just hop on the CITI 3 service and get off in Emmanuel Street and your there. No having to find parking in a very busy city centre. It was our first visit to Cambridge and should we come again we will head for Autumn House.

This was a great choice for a short budget stay in Cambridge. Owners Al and Sharon de Luca extend a warm welcome to their guests in a spotless B & B that is well-equipped with free wi-fi and freshly cooked breakfast included! All rooms have a folder of recommended restaurants; room keys have the number of a local taxi firm that offers the best fares for AH guests; and Sharon and Al are a mine of information with regard to walks, bus routes and car parking. The bus stop is a minute's walk away with buses running every 10-15 minutes into the centre of Cambridge. And one of the best value-for-money restaurants in the city is right there on the doorstep. Definitely recommend. (£ 40 pp +/- for two in room sharing, generous breakfast included)

We have just stayed for three nights at Autumn house. It was a fantastic stay. The room was superb with all the home from home comforts you could wish for including comfy bed, a seating area (essential in my opinion) and a close attention to detail when it came to little extra facilities. Our hosts Sharon and Al were charming and only too willing to help us during our stay. Breakfast was delicious, offered a wide range of choices and set us up perfectly for the day ahead. We left feeling refreshed and would recommend the b&b to anyone.

We found this B&B on tripadvisor based on the positive reviews we'd read. We stayed two nights at Autumn House, on the first day we arrived, the owner Al was so friendly and helpful to give us some recommendations of the must see tourists spots around Cambridge.
The restaurants he suggested were also fantastic. After that, he showed us the room we booked with two beds which was so clean, comfortable and cozy. The room was equipped with everything you need which was more than I expected. The location is perfect just ten minutes by bus No. 3 to the city center.

The breakfast was wonderful with abundant selections (I had full English breakfast), definitely will come back if we visist Cambridge again. Thank Al & Sharon for the great experiences staying with you!

We booked largely on the basis of reviews we'd read, and our experience bears out the numerous positive comments we'd seen. Very comfortable, well maintained and spotlessly clean, very good breakfast, owners welcoming and helpful. We didn't need to go into the city centre, but the bus service looks good. We tried one of the pubs recommended by the owners (Plough in Fen Ditton, about 25 min walk) and had a very enjoyable dinner.
It might seem a little pricey for a B&B (although perhaps not by Cambridge standards!) but well worth it, and to us much better value than a chain hotel - we've never stayed in one yet that met this standard. If we come back to Cambridge, Autumn House will be at the top of our shortlist.

Room Tip: We had room 1, a deluxe double, which was very well equipped and spacious with two comfortable chair...

I spent 5 nights with Autumn House. The owner has done a great job to make my stay a comfortable one. The room is in cosy decor, simple, nice and clean though occassionaly you may get some traffic noise if you room is facing the main road. The owner has put lots of effort to keep it to a high standard. In my opinion, it is even better than lots of hotels. The daily breakfast i have is another good experience. Cook to order and very tasty English style. Parking is conveneice and you have 2 min walk to a bus stop for bus to town center and train station. Overall, a 5 stars B&B. Will stay again whenever vsiting Cambridge!

Room Tip: Room facing the main ros may have noise.
