“Warm and Friendly!”
Reviewed August 23, 2010

This hotel is in a very central location in Windermere, the proprietors Dave & Debbie are two very pleasant people with an excellent hotel set up.
We stayed for two nights but they were very relaxing and peaceful, it is so nice to be able to waken up in the morning and have the knowledge that you will go down to a wonderful fully cooked breakfast. It set the day up for you in such a nice part of the country.

The room was modern as well as clean, no faults or complaints about this.

A small walk and you will be at the Lake, a variety of restaurants & bars within easy walking distance also.

Over all impression of this hotel was great and I would definitely recommend and will be back in the near future.

Located in Windermere, just a shortish walk from Bowness and very close to train and bus stations it suited us perfectly.

It was very clean and tidy, the room was spacious enough and certainly cosy, the breakfasts were excellent and Debbie was really friendly and helpful.

The 'rules' mentioned in the some other other reviews are certainly not unreasonable - just no red wine or hot food in the rooms and don't to be too loud - I'd rather these very minor inconveniences than a messy room! The largish DVD collection was a nice addition too!

Would definately recommend it, especially at their v reasonable prices.

I recommend this lovely guess house to absolutely anyone! It was three of us and we were given 2 double rooms for only 30 pounds per person which were amazing! It is literally just mins away from the train station, and the rooms are welcoming and comfy. Debbie and Dave, the owners of the guess house are really kind and caring for us. When we left my father forgot the charger for his digital camera and Debbie mailed it back to us the very next day! Thank you very very much for the pleasant experience. We wish you good health and fortune in the future. - David Qin.

Stayed at Cambridge House with my husband and son for a weekend, we found Cambridge House to be friendly, clean and warm.
It had a fantastic location, within easy reach of all of the local attractions and all walks, eg Orrest Head, Helvelyn, Helm Cragg and many others are all within 20 minutes of the guest house.
As my family all have a large appetite, this was fulfilled with the great breakfast we were served up.
My family took the advantage of using the free Leisure facilities that were on offer to us, this was based at Parklands Country Club, this was only about a mile away and provided free parking.
Would definately stay here again in the future.

Usually stay in hotels, travel 70 -100 night a year. Struggling to find last minute so wasn't sure what to expect, pleasantly surprised. As far as B&B's go Cambridge house was very clean, warm and well presented. Bathroom in room 3 seemed recently modernised, free Wifi worked well, owner helpful and no difficult rules or reg's as mentioned in one review. I certainly woulldn't be happy if someone had curry in my room the night before but no problem bringing other foods etc. litle hassle.

Can't go wrong at £60 via Laterooms, have to be very picky to fault this place when comparing to other B&B's. No hesitation in coming back.

Great location, town 30 second stroll with wide choice of restuarants, bakery, coffe shops etc within 2-5 mins stroll. Lake Windermere 20 min walk away or 5 min by regular bus. Bowness a mile down the road. Got a parking permit off the owners so no problems. I would think this is going to be a problem for all B&B's in the area (hence score of 4 for location otherwise 5). Railway station 5 min stroll. Avoid Indian, pretty average compared to standards of Rusholme, Sparkhill, East end and Bradford.

we stayed for 2 nights at cambridge house and cannot fault it, i have stayed in a few bnb's over the years and this one is probably the best,
the room was more than big enough for the two of us, we had tv/dvd player and cd player in the room with a good selection of cds and videos as well as books to use while we were there,
debbie is very friendly and the whole place is spotless, the breakfast kept us going for the day,
its in a good location and walking distance from the lake with shops and restaurants nearby
we would definately stay there again

We are regular visitors to the Lake District and we use Windermere and Bowness as our base. We have stayed in many B and B's some good some not so good. Cambridge House has to be one of the most friendliest B and B's we have ever stayed in. We planned on staying three nights but extended it to four, mainly because the weather was so fab for this time of year! Debbie is an excellent hostess and will go out of her way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. The room we stayed in was very clean and had everything we needed. The breakfasts were fab! My husband filled his plate every morning! They really do set you up for the day especially if you are walkers like us. It was great value for money, and as a base excellent! As it states on the website the rooms are small, but for us this was fine. We would definately go back and would recommend it to our friends.
