Owner lovely, but misleading initial photo
Owner was lovely however....I use about 4 times a week for business and after 10 stays at hotels I receive a free stay complimentary for the sum of the average hotels stayed at -this is usually about £75-£95 worth of complimentary hotel stays twice every six weeks It costs me over £1000 to receive this and I look forwards to using them, feels like a nice little rebate. My grievance on this particular occasion is that often when in Cambridge, hotels can be difficult to find for an acceptable amount, often some can be £150-£200 each night. On this occasion I accept it was getting near 8pm and I was worn out and had been trying to source a hotel for about 90 mins. What really gets me here is that the first photo to come up is the picture of what looks like a country house manor type hotel and in fact it says property grounds. After searching for so long I admit I didn't go into too much detail and check but on that first impression, and last minute, I thought it ideal, and booked, using my free night which was for the value of £82 but the hotel cost a little of £65. When the confirmation came through I was shocked and dismayed that I then saw what looked like a run down BandB. I understand who it caters for, but the initial photo massively mis-represents Bed clean but uncomfy and bathroom is tiny and a partitioned after thought. Also the floor was wet underneath the lino, not pleasant at all

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.
