Our experiences of B&Bs in England after 5 weeks had been mostly great. This B&B was not up to the standard of others of the same standard that we had stayed at. Our room was in a seperate building down the back of the property that also had the dining room in it. Our room was comfortable and clean but...

My partner and I stayed at this hotel in september of this year. It "does exactly what it says on the tin!". The rooms were lovely and cosy, a little small but very clean with flat screen tv's and a lovely shower room. The breakfasts were scrummy, offering a selection of menu, full english, smoked salmon, cereal, croissants etc. The...

Walking distance to the heart of Cambridge, close to parks and restaurants too. Rooms were clean but the shower is tiny. Service was great, gave us a local map and directed us towards the local attractions. Our room was facing away from the street so there was hardly any noise. Had a sumptious breakfast next morning.

This was a lovely property in a good location. You could either walk to the center of town or take a bus from just down the street. The hosts were very friendly and accomodating. Breakfasts were excellent. The shower was a bit tricky to learn. Great value for the money

We had a geat experience in Home from home. We were staying in a Double Room, which came to be an apartment. We didn't really spend time on it, but it had everything you need and more. The lounge was big, with its own kitchen utilities and sofa, tv, dvd player, etc. The bedroom was massive and the bed was...

We visited Cambridge recently to take in the sights for a few days and were delighted that we elected to stay with Home from Home. Liz & Vince run a very homely B&B which is ideally sited close to town. We walked into the centre via the park or along the river each morning (takes 10-15 mins at a leisurely...

Perfectly located for walks along the river into the centre of Cambridge, and just a stone's throw away from the outdoor swimming pool on Jesus Green. Our room was actually two rooms (we were upgraded because of a cancellation) and made the ideal base for a family stay, with a lounge/kitchen as well as a large bedroom with room for...

With our family of five, we got an apartment-like complex with two bedrooms and four beds. The living and kitchen areas were very pleasant, and we had a nice shower. Unfortunately, we didn't get breakfast, and the owner wasn't the most friendly. The parking area is quite hard to maneuver into, but is provided, which is more than most can...
