We booked a large double and it was lovely - a sitting room, complete with kitchen and a separate bedroom, if we were in Cambridge again we would be very happy to stay again, nice and central, good breakfast and helpful staff

After having read rave reviews of this place we were a little disappointed. Location is good, the staff were helpful and friendly. However it was quite expensive for what we got. A very small room, and a not overly comfortable bed or pillows. Breakfast was ok. We expected it to be more homely and comfortable with a name like home...

We stayed 2 nights to attend a wedding at Jesus College.(About 13 mins walk away) We had the family basement room, which was very clean & well presented with it's own front door access. Main room had a small kitchen area (well stocked with dishes/utensils/fridge/tea/coffee/milk/biscuits) and a single bed & sofa/tv/coffee table. The bedroom had huge bed & ensuite shower/toilet....

We liked everything about this place. The room which was a small apartment type room. The toiletries, the towels and the bed. The breakfast was really nice there was a good menu to choose from and it was very tasty, cooked to order. The owner was lovely and very helpful and good information was given. The location is just a...

Close enough to Cambridge for walking this is an excellent place to stay and leave your car. The rooms are decorated beautifully with large fluffly (John Lewis) towels. We stayed two nights and were given an apartment with kitchen facilities but we actually decided to upgrade when shown the luxurious room with a free standing bath. A couple of minor...

The driveway is tight, don't bring anything wide down! The house is in a busy street. Handy for the frequent #1 CityBus into town, but there are pubs, restaurants and takeaways nearby. I was lucky - I was upgraded to a larger room in the bungalow to the rear, away from noisy Milton Road. Peace and quiet. A very comfortable...

I had a very pleasant stay at this accomodation. The couple running this bed& breakfast are extremly kind and make you feel as if you are at home. The room is nice and is furnished with care, which makes it feel even more comfortable. There are also sort of "community rooms" that are open to all guests and even offer...

We stayed in the attic room, which was good value. The proprietor warned us that it was quite small, but in fact it was not that small and was very comfortable and quiet. This B&B is as close to the University as any, so convenient for visiting a college. Breakfast was excellent.

Slightly uninspiring property from the outside and situated on quite a busy road to the outskirts of Cambridge. However, we stayed in the ground floor room to the front of No 80 and it was lovely! Super free-standing slipper bath with lots of hot water and soft towels. Original Victorian fireplace in the bathroom and bedroom, big comfy bed and...

This property could not be better situated and my sister and I were made extremely welcome. Short walk into all Cambridge sites through Jesus Green. Easy access to buses including Red Bus hop on hop off, didn't need to use the car at all. We had the attic room with two very comfortable single beds and plenty of refreshments available....
