This property could not be better situated and my sister and I were made extremely welcome. Short walk into all Cambridge sites through Jesus Green. Easy access to buses including Red Bus hop on hop off, didn't need to use the car at all. We had the attic room with two very comfortable single beds and plenty of refreshments available.... More

The property is quite central and has an unassuming exterior but we were pleasantly surprised at the interior. It was very clean and nicely appointed with a lot of thought put into the decor and preserving some of the old English charm. The owner and the staff were very friendly and helpful especially the lovely Polish lady who served breakfast.... More

Stayed one night in June 2016, £86 B&B Nice welcoming couple who run this establishment and, at this time of year in Cambridge, very decent value. It's just what it says, very homely, and pretty quiet for the position on quite a busy road. I was fortunate to be upgraded to one of their apartments as they were busy so... More

We stayed at home from home for three nights and will definitely go back! It's a walking distance from Cambridge and the hosts are great. Super recommended. We especially enjoyed the great breakfast and the cosy rooms. I could just say to anyone i know that this is the place to go to. Highly recommended.

We had the first floor apartment we only stayed for a night but it was clean and comfortable. It has a kitchen, settee, TV with a bed in another room with an ensuit. Breakfast was lovely. Nice walk into town through a park. I am in my late 20's

We stayed for one night, while we visited Cambridge. Very clean comfortable room. Made to feel very welcome and an amazing breakfast to set us up for the day ahead. Added bonus was the shared kitchen that was available should it be required. Good location with free parking and within a short walk to the city. Would visit again.

We booked an apartment for 2 nights - after some initial confusion about checking in the helpful owner gave us details of how to get in. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed, including a free WIFI code. Walkable distance from the centre of Cambridge and free parking.
