Positive Reviews

Comfortable rooms

Rooms here are typically described as rather dated in appearance but are found to be clean and reasonably comfortable. The accommodation is basic but seems to be fairly well maintained and nicely presented.

Friendly hosts

The owner of this Cambridge B&B has proved to be a highlight for many guests. It does seem that you can expect to be on the receiving end of a warm welcome as well as friendly and attentive service here.

Good location

Guests have found the location of this B&B convenient, with many finding the walk into the city centre, and thus shops and dining spots, easy. For those who aren't so nimble, the B&B is close to transport links.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi could be improved

Previous guests haven't always been all that impressed with the standard of the Wi-Fi here, with more than one reporting that Wi-Fi was not available in their room.

Bathroom facilities disappoint

The bathroom situation here has proved fairly disappointing. Those guests who had to share facilities found this less than ideal. That said, those who benefitted from en-suite facilities have often found these small to the point of feeling cramped.

Basic breakfast

Guests tend to find the breakfast here is on the basic side. The choices are fairly limited and guests note that everything is organised to offer the smallest possible portions. Interestingly, feedback about breakfast has become progressively worse over the past few years, so it seems that the morning meal could be due a revamp.
