Just spend a night in this lovely B&B, very close to the railway station, small room. Mine (room 6 - for 1 people) has bathroom on the floor. Breakfast was good, and despite my lie-in (cause of a great wedding), wasn't a problem to serve (thx!). Not in the town center but quiet.

This is a terrace property with limited parking around the back. If all you want is a bed for the night, then it might fit the bill. All the available space in the house has been converted to guest rooms, so there is not lounge or sitting area downstairs apart from the tiny breakfast room which is locked and inaccessible...

Visited Tension Towers earlier this week. It is literally 3 minutes walk from the station and about a 10 min stroll to the Centre. We stayed in a double en suite which was spotlessly clean, the bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in and the night was very peaceful (was at the back of the house so don't...

Clean rooms but relatively expensive. The breakfast room was locked the following morning and we had to telephone the mobile number to get it open. We paid our bills the next day on leaving but found they had already debited my credit card. Refund made eventually with apology.

The room was clean and commfortable had a good nights sleep. It's situated about 5 minutes walk away from the train station, 15 minutes into Cambridge town so a great location. The staff were talkative and friendly and the breakfast was delicious too! The shower was very small but that's the only downside, everything else was fine!

I booked in for a night when visiting friends in Cambridge. I probably waited too long to book in high season, so wound up here. I had a warm welcome, a comfy bed, and a good shower. It is basic (bring your soap), but very clean and the bed was perfect and cozy. Wifi was working well, and continental breakfast...

The place was not big, but it was quite clean. The room did not have a wardrobe, the bathroom was very very very small, but we still enjoyed the place. Mainly because of the owner, who was a really lovely lady always smiling and ever so helpful. B&B close to the train station.

This B&B is very well placed near to the station; the proprietor is a very nice and welcoming woman. We had continental breakfast because the English is a 5 pound plus for each guest and, frankly, we had had too many. Quite good and delivered with care. This said the room was little, no sound isolation, therefore whenever one comes...

This hotel was really friendly, the landlady was kind. The hotel is quite near the city centre (15 min) and is clean. But, we hadn't any soap for the body in the bathroom and the bathroom itself was not good. The other things was good. We probably return in this hotel.

We stayed for 1 night and were very pleased we chose this b & b. We arrived by train and it is only a 5 minute walk from the station, around 15 minutes from the city centre ,so convenient for our needs. We arrived about 5pm after walking around the city on a very cold and windy afternoon so we...
