Beautifully decorated and appointed Guest House. Large tasty breakfasts with a good choice on offer. Warm & cosy bedrooms and very spacious rooms. Loved the black jack toffees left for us each day, nice touch. Nice bathroom and furnishings. The hosts were lovely people, very knowledgeable about the area. They made us very welcome. The house is on a very busy road and we did hear traffic noise when trying to sleep. Big comfy beds though. The house is spotlessly clean throughout. The only problem we had was the amount of walking we had too do to get into the centre of Cambridge which was a long 25-30 minute walk across Jesus Green park. Would highly recommend Lynwood House.

We used as a B&B whilst visiting the City. Easy to find, for Cambridge. Managed to park on the front drive - a real benefit. Room comfortable and clean but some road noise we got used to (first room on right, ground floor). Pleasant walk along the river or across the park into the colleges / town centre. Breakfast was superb. Will re-visit as do our friends. WE paid £250 for 2 nights in October 2019

Room Tip: Request rom at the back to avoid road noise - although this wasn't overpowering.

Whilst the price per night is towards the upper middle / top end in my opinion it is money well spent. It is very rare to stop anywhere these days without something that was not up to scratch but not here. Room 5 was spacious and very comfortable with a lovely large bathroom. The bedding was top of the range and just the job for falling into after a long day sightseeing around Cambridge. The breakfasts are superb with something for everyone and if you want anything just ask and it will appear on your table minutes later. The hosts will answer any questions you have if you are visiting Cambridge and need any hints and tips during your stay. It is a 15 to 20 walk into the city and the house is on a bus route should you need it. We will certainly look no further than Lynwood House when we next visit Cambridge

Stayed here for 4 nights on our first visit to Cambridge. Our hosts Julie and Nick gave us a very warm welcome and were most helpful and informative about the area. Breakfast was amazing with mostly home made muesli fresh fruit and granola. It was cooked to order and it was no bother to them to mix and match to your tastes. Our room number 2 at the back of the house was very comfortable quiet and spotlessly clean but was a bit on the small side. This didn’t bother us too much as we were out all day. Free car parking was not a problem. Would thoroughly recommend this B & B and would stay here again.

Booking process & check in was smooth. Julie have great advice about Cambridge. Room was very clean and well decorated. It was big enough for our needs (a couple of days away) and bathroom well presented. Breakfast was delicious and provided for those didn’t get up on time! Great place, would definitely book again! Highly recommend.
