My family and I were visiting Cambridge for a family reunion and just by chance, I found 5 Chapel St B&B. It was perfect for us. It was a bit of a walk into the town, but the walk along the canal made it worthwhile. One of the rooms was a bit small, but there was no detail spared for... More

I stayed two nights in mid November. The room was excellent but a little cosy and the breakfasts were good as well. I agree with the previous reviews that the walk along the river into town is about 30 minutes but it is a very pleasant walk if the weather is nice.

5 Chapel St is a really lovely B&B, we had a comfortable room with excellent facilities. Christine who runs the B&B is a lovely host and the breakfasts were wonderful. It is a bit of a walk from the City Centre, along the river, but there are also buses that will take you there.

My husband and I were very well looked after by Christine, the owner of 5 Chapel St, during our stay. Excellent choice of breakfasts with home made bircher muesli, exotic fruit salad, home made bread as well as the usual fare, and home made ginger biscuits to have with tea and coffee in our room when we arrived. Christine gave... More

Great little B&B located a short bike ride from the city center. They have an amazing breakfast set up and are very friendly hosts. The fresh cookies, placed in the room daily, are absolutely delicious.

Stayed here for the Bank Holiday weekend and it was perfect. Christine went out of her way to ensure our stay was perfect. The breakfast prepared was delicious, especially the home baked bread. Thank you. The location was ideal. A lovely walk along the canals into Cambridge was wonderful. A definite, if you want to discover Cambridge.

Would highly recommend this immaculate B and B. Situated within easy walking distance of town centre and with free on street parking almost on the doorstep.

After 35 miles on the bike trail we were welcomed with amazing home-made scones baked by proprietor Christine accompanied by classic clotted cream and homemade marmalade. The 3 well appointed guest rooms in a 200+ year old house have been well modernized and include fully equipped en suite bathrooms complete with the quintessential English towel warmers.

Thank you for your delightful review and your very generous praise of my baking skills. Just to clarify, I am afraid that there is only one room with a super-kingsize double bed (that also separates to twin beds). The room neighbouring yours is very slightly larger but an odd shape so one does not really notice the extra space. The... More

The nature of B&B has changed radically in recent years, and those that thrive in the market have none of the hit-and-miss idiosyncrasies of yesterday. 5, Chapel Street manages at once to retain a homely charm while ensuring that quality is of the highest. Our room was fairly small (we were forewarned, they're often booked out) but wanted for nothing,... More
