A little gem.
What I can say. I have stayed in a variety of establishments in Cambridge and none and I mean none have had a breakfast more delicious and filling as this one. Andrew and his wife are very attentive hosts and nothing seems to much trouble. Really enjoyed my stay.

Never again
Not in my diary to ever go back. Room was freezing cold and not worth the money. However 1 saving feature was that when i could not accept the cold any longer i asked if there was a fan heater available and the owner provided one. Saying " Dont leave it on to long"

udget no frills guest house.
Very basic guest house. However, it was clean. If budget is an issue you could do worse than stay here. Limited parking at the rear (3 cars). 20 minute walk into Cambridge itself.

Excellent for 1 or 2 nights. Rooms not overly big but sufficient. Shower unit needed a little attention in room 4. Can hear some traffic nearby if window is open. Very friendly host and staff. Excellent breakfast. Good value.

The room was clean and quaint, albeit rather small but it had everything I needed. Cleaning is done daily and they change towels every day, which was excellent. The place is really small, especially the stairs so take caution when heading up with heavy or bulky luggage. The walls were extremely thin so sounds throughout the entire house can be heard rather often especially if there is someone staying right beside you. I stayed in room 7, which was the attic level. The owner was decent and their breakfast option was okay as well. This place is great for short stays (2-3 nights)

Pleasant Stay
Booked a twin room, on arrival informed we had been given a room with a double AND two single beds, which was perfectly ok! The room was clean and quite spacious considering there were three beds in it, with room for a wardrobe, dressing table, two drawer units & bedside tables for all three beds. The downside of this was the fact the en-suite was rather small, so much so, that the wash hand basin was in the bedroom also. The shower cubicle was an adequate size to shower in comfort (I am 6' and 105 kg). The free breakfast was served in a bright room with choice of English / Continental & vegetarian option, requests for extra toast etc. were readily supplied. On the whole a very pleasant two night stay, with just the en-suite lowering the comfort rating.
