Autumn House is no ordinary B & B. On arrival Al welcomes you, gives you a map and as much information as you need to enjoy your stay in Cambridge.

Our room and the rest of the B & B we used were absolutely immaculate and yes I mean immaculate not a speck of dust anywhere. Little touches did not go amiss either like sweetners with the tea,coffee and hot chocolate; the hand sanitiser on the tables in the dining room and the ability to chose and have your breakfast exactly as you would like it. The breakfast choice rivals any 5* star hotel.

The Pipasha Indian (recommended by Al) practically opposite Autumn House is a must, although you really must book. It was totally full on Saturday when we went, the food amazing, even being full you don't get forgotten about with drinks etc. Highly recommend the Chicken Hasina,delicious.

The riverside walk from just down the road from the B & B right into town is quite long, but a lovely walk and you get to see all the house boats and rowers along the way. At the end of the walk you come to Scudmores punting, these guys are great you get a hot water bottle and blanket and the guide is very knowledgeable and fun (Tom).

Overall we had a wonderful weekend break in Cambridge, thanks Al for your hospitality we will definately be back.

Room Tip: Upstairs as wooden flooring a bit noisy downstairs

1. The host, Al, is so nice and friendly. Really patient and helpful in providing information.
2. We arrived rather late and so informed the host early. Self-check in arrangement was great.
3. Extremely clean and tidy, Very comfortable. Feel like home.
4, The street was a bit noisy, but fine if the windows were well shut. It was almost winter and so it was not hot.
5. The breakfast was just perfect in both quality and quantity. Nothing to complain.
6. Not really close to town, but still very convenient by bus Citi 3.
7. Parking is free and very convenient for drivers.
8. The only thing that could be improved: water pressure for shower. Personally I like shower with high water pressure. Not sure whether it was due to the electric water heater.

Room Tip: Choose rooms not facing the main street if you are a light sleeper.

An excellent rating doesn't do this B & B justice.

My Wife and I stayed over two nights 30/09 & 01/10, it's mentioned numerous times the moment you enter Autum House you are made to feel very welcome.

The owner of this B & B's customer service is so refreshing from many hotels and other similar B& B's. There is so much attention to detail from where the best restaurants in the City to go to, how to get into the City by bus, a map is provided detailing places of interest, again restaurants are highlighted.

Autum House is perfectly situated only a 10 minute bus ride to the City Centre with a bus stop just a couple of minutes from the property, the citi 3 runs every 10 minutes Mon-Sat and every 30 minutes on Sundays. Parking in the City is very expensive so it's ideal to leave your car at the property where there is safe parking for 3 to 4 cars.

Autum is immaculately clean from top to bottom, our room had a double bed with ensuite. The room spec was excellent with a super bath/shower.

The room had central heating which within seconds of putting on was hot. The TV was small and difficult to see from the bed, but that's just a small gripe as you don't go away to sit and watch TV.

Before you are shown to your room you are asked what you would like for breakfast as if you want a full english Mr De Luca will ensure you get it. There are your usual options for breakfast from cereals to fruit, scrambled eggs and of course the Full English which is up there with the best a true 10/10 cooked fresh with quality bacon and sausages and served hot.

The breakfast area is tastefully decorated and has two plasma Tv's which take away that sometimes awkward silence.

If you are looking for a B & B that ticks all the boxes do not look any further than Autum House and check the website, it might be more cost effective to book direct rather than go through booking.com and similar booking websites.

Thank you for a very warm and comfortable stay, you sure know how to look after your guest's.

10/10 all around

Very warm welcome from a very friendly host, really comfortable bed, lovely room, every thing is of the best quality, breakfast was very good, every thing you needed was there. Great location too, short bus ride in to city centre. Would recommend.

A warm welcome and an immaculate room with every detail carefully thought out. Autumn House is on the outskirts of the city and is an ideal base for seeing the sights or visiting other places in the county. Nothing is too much trouble, with excellent individually cooked breakfasts included in the price, which is very reasonable. Our son recommended Autumn House a couple of years ago and having experienced a wonderful weekend then, we did not hesitate when we revisited Cambridge this year. We are already booking for next year !
