My husband and I stayed here while visiting our daughter who was, attending Cambridge University. She chose the hotel for us. Turned out no only to be the perfect location, but exactly what we needed after touring around Italy and all its glory. We wanted space, openness and familiarity. Fabulous hotel stay!
We were welcomed very warmly by Jennifer who couldn't do enough for us to make the stay comfortable. The room was lovely and well looked after, comfortable and clean. The hotel bar area was also very nice and the outside area by the river was idyllic. The breakfast was excellent value for money with a very wide choice of delicious food.
"Great hotel with great views, once you get to it!"
Road construction makes reaching the hotel very difficult. Apparently they would have emailed directions but we booked only a couple hours before arrival.
With phone guidance we finally got there - recommend using their valet service since parking is very difficult and pricey. But plan 1/2 hour before you need the car when leaving.
The hotel staff are wonderful, our suite was extremely comfortable and well equipped, and the rooftop bar gives amazing views of Cambridge. Expensive drinks but maybe worth the view.
Walking from the hotel is easy to get to the city centre, colleges, river, etc.

Prior to our stay at this B&B I had already had problems regarding the payment so the manager proceeded to include a free breakfast for myself and my partner as a welcome apology. Upon arrival to the guest house we were however informed that there was another problem, this time with the twin room we had booked. Although a bit vague on what the problem was, the manager offered us two double bedrooms in the annexe across the road as an alternative which we were more than happy with. The rooms we had were around the right size for the price we paid but they were quite dusty and aside from some lights not working and old water being left in the kettle, they were ok. Breakfast was average, but if you are looking for a cheap B&B in Cambridge which is just somewhere to stay for a night or two then this is somewhere to consider.

In a handy position between the station and the city centre, this Guest house overlooks Parker's Piece which I think is a lovely place to be. The room was nicely decorated and very clean and the bed comfortable. I also found it to be a much quieter location than some as it is set back from the main road. Breakfast was more than adequate with a nice choice of food. Now I have discovered this Guest House I will definitely return as it is very good value for money. It is also close enough for a short walk to a lot of the colleges, river and Fitzwilliam museum and art gallery,, not to mention the shopping centre and market.

Floating in the misty fens, this beautiful university city attracts hordes of visitors to its gothic spires, shady cloisters and wide open parks. In the summer, sun seekers punt along the Cam or picnic under the willows that line its banks. Strawberry Fair free music festival takes place early in June and the city's famous folk festival is in July. The view from Castle Hill is worth the climb.
