“Very friendly welcome”
Reviewed 5 October 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We received an exceptionally friendly welcome from Lin who took us in late one evening after we had checked out of another hotel in Cambridge. She knew that we were cold, so she even put hot water bottles in our beds to warm them up! The house is homely and comfortable and the location is perfect for the university colleges and the town centre - all within walking distance.

“A friendly and comfortable B and B”
Reviewed 31 August 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Lin is a very friendly and helpful hostess who gave me a room upgrade and a cup of tea on my arrival! My room overlooked her beautiful garden and there is also free parking provided. Breakfast was good and Lin's home-made marmalade was delicious!
It was a pleasant and easy walk to the Cambridge colleges and town centre.

Very comfortable, pleasant room with nice views over garden. Good breakfast served at time we requested and Lin was a very welcoming, friendly hostess. Parking was fine and we could walk to the Colleges.

We had an excellent stay at Hobsons House. Paul was so accommodating and helpful. The house was warm and friendly, our room very comfortable. We had great views from our windows over the lovely garden and the breakfast was delicious. The Wifi was also very good. We would definitely stay there again!

We had a wonderful stay at Hobsons House. Lin was incredibly welcoming, and by the end of our short stay we felt that we had made a new friend. (We even took pictures with her in her gorgeous garden.) Breakfast was very good, and the room was lovely and comfortable. We have already recommended this place to university friends of ours who are traveling to Cambridge.
