We enjoy our stay in Acacia Guest House in family this september. Thanks a lot for everything. We will back the next time we come to visit Cambridge. It was a little bit difficult to park because there are only some places in front.

I stayed here with my daughter while visiting Strawberry fair we were greeted by a cheerful and chatty lady. We stayed in room 2 which was lovely, clean and pillows were so soft we had a really good nights sleep. Parking on site which helps. Recommended. We will be back 😊

Good value for money for UK standards. Room was very clean, beds very comfortable and customer service excellent. Transportation links to the train station and the city are good. Bathroom could do with some improvement, water pressure in shower and from tap was very low.

We stayed here at the weekend. It was very clean and comfortable and served our needs perfectly. The couple who run it were lovely and hard working. The breakfast was lovely and fresh. We are going to be regular visitors to Cambridge and plan to stay here in the future if there is a room.

My partner and I were looking for a cheap accomodation for just two nights and the room we were given was just fine: not pristine - but you can't expect much from these places - but the bathroom was clean, with new fixtures, and the bed was clean and comfortable.
