While this was not the most economical stay we've ever made, it felt worthwhile. The hotel is extremely central, the staff were charming and they park the car (at a price) which is nearly impossible in Cambridge. Room was comfortable and the breakfast next morning was good and plentiful.
Overall, a very good place to stay in the Cambridge area. Room was comfortable, beakfast was excellent, good (free) wi-fi signal, location was good although one does need a vehicle. When we went into Cambridge, we thought the hire car was reasonable - 13GBP. Staff was, for the most part, friendly and helpful. There were many activities available - a golf course and fitness center/pool. However, Because of our schedule, we did not have the time to use those facilities. Would likely use again.
Got upgraded to king room as it was a 21st birthday surprise which was amazing, the room was gorgeous. Staff were more than happy to help make the surprise the best it could be, apart from one doorman who was slightly rude! But the rest of the stay well and truly made up for it. Even a happy birthday note and chocolates added by staff for the birthday boy. Pricey room, but definitely worth every second of being there. The rooftop terrace is stunning also! Would love to stay again!

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.

Needed somewhere to stay to break up a long journey. Was very impressed with the quiet, scenic location just off the A 14. Didn't think we'd use the facilities but went to the pool and had a quick dip. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely book again if I needed somewhere in the area.
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.
