Warm welcome from proprietor and then offered a lift from her husband to where we were going which was very kind. The room was a good size and clean. Disappointed that there was no breakfast, I hadn't realised that when booking. Make sure you bring your own toiletries as they are minimal. However there is a full sized fridge which... More

Fairways Guest House is a 5 minute walk from Cambridge railway station and is very close to the city centre, being about a 20 minute walk. The proprietors of the guest house are very welcoming and friendly and will be pleased to answer any questions you might have. The rooms themselves are clean and the shower worked well. The price...

My husband and I visited Cambridge for business (job interview) and booked a couple of nights at Fairways because it was the least expensive room we could find that was still available. The room was pretty basic with older carpets, not much decor, and mostly everything was brown: brown carpets, bedding, etc. We didn't care for the smell in the... More

We chose Fairways Guest House to stay in Cambridge because breakfast is not included, which meant that we did not eat a high calorie "Full English" meal at the start of the day just because it was on the offering. The guest house is very reasonably priced. Our room was very comfortable with an en suite, a good size and... More

My first impression of fairways was one of "it looks nothing like the photo's". There was a funny smell, of a smell covering a smell. My single room was tiny, and the decoration was unimaginative. Brown bed cover, brown curtains, and grey carpet. The carpet extended into the bathroom. Which I felt was odd. Tiles would have looked cleaner, and... More

Hotel was clean and comfortable with good secure parking. Owners were welcoming but not over enthusaistic. Breakfast was good but the dining room is like a time warp, in truth the whole place could do with a bit of a makeover, but it's fine for a one night stop.

We chose this B&B out of many that were available in the area, based on good reviews we'd read online. When we arrived at 6pm the landlady wasn't very welcoming (Not even a "hello") & there was an over-powering smell of cooking. We were asked for payment immediately, we weren't shown to our room just told we were in room... More
