i loved the breakfast, freshly cooked by the owner. the family room was lovely and well-appointed. 15 mins walk to Jesus Green, 10 mins by bus to the city centre. And if you have to do a business at the Westbrook centre, this b&b is just 10 mins walk away.

My wife and I recently stayed at Home from Home in Cambridge, and we had a great time. The facilities are very nice, and the staff is enormously helpful and polite. They definitely went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. The food is excellent, and the rooms are a great value. Home from Home...

My wife and I stayed for one night while visiting Cambridge. We were allocated room 7 in the annex building to the rear of the main house. We arrived early by arrangement with the owner, parked and were given a very warm welcome by one of the team who was still busy cleaning the rooms. She made us a large...

Just got back from a great stay at Home from home. We were in the outhouse, at the back of the property, and found it very comfortable and quiet in the evening. We had a large double room, which was immacuately clean. Breakfast was nothing short of fantastic with a great choice. I had full English while my patner had...

Booked a treble room which turned out to be a double room, kitchenette and bed sitting room, in the basement of the house which seemed to be completely converted to accomodation, not the family home their name leads you to think. The rooms were dreary, handles missing from furniture, electric shaving point didn't work and the shower head wouldn't stay...

I stayed here several weeks back and it truely was terrible. The B&B is located on a fairly busy road, and so traffic noice kept us awake at night (not to mention the uncomfortable beds). I am not sure if there is a homeless shelter close-by but there were lots of drunken homeless people close by and also causing noise...

We have not used this B&B before and found it on the web. We arrived and met the owner who is very hospital and has run this B&B for 10 years. We stayed in what turned out to be a small self catering apartment, for no extra charge, and found it very comfortable. Lovely towels and bath sundries and it...

Finding good value in Cambridge is not easy but Home from Home is a very good option to a hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable, management and staff helpful and friendly. Home from Home is close enough to walk into the city.
