Very comfortable, excellent warm welcome from the host upon arrival with a cup of tea and biscuit, lovely room and excellent breakfast, excellent location as we walked to the centre leaving the car at home from home, the towels were lovely and the tea/coffee making facility was of a high standard, excellent dining room layout with excellent variety of breakfast foods, very clean.it was also great having the tv with subtitles as we are deaf.

The pillow was too thin and soft.

Location: Great - it's just a few minutes from M11 junc 13 but only about a ten to fifteen minutes walk from the the heart of the city and only five mins from the river at Jesus Green (a large and popular public green area). Our room was at the front and we didnt notice any traffic noise - though that may have been because it was a Sunday morning.

Owners: Excellent - Liz was kind enough to arrange a booking at short notice for a surprise treat for my wife. Vince was brilliant, very friendly and helpful with good advice for us. He's just a really nice guy!

Room: Amazing - loads of space, very well equipped, comfortable bed. Some toiletries, hot drinks, biscuits, bottled water supplied. The whole place was spotlessly clean, and tastefully decorated. Bright bathroom, decent towels, even the toilet paper was of good quality!!

Breakfast: Serious stuff - good choice of cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, and a full English with REALLY NICE Lincolnshire sausages (none of your "value" rubbish here) and proper fried mushrooms rather than the stewed mess usually seen. It defo meets with MY approval.

Price: Very reasonable - excellent value for money all things considered.

Conclusion: We will stay here any time we return and strongly recommend it to friends, family, and you guys reading this. G&T from Maidstone.

We stayed for four nights in the 2 bedroom apartment. At first we were a bit shocked by the narrow stairs to the apartment but once our bags were upstairs we settled in easily. They do have rooms on the lower levels more suited to the elderly or disabled.
The day we arrived it was really hot but soon realised it was one of the hottest days so far this summer. The apartment had no air conditioning just a couple of fans. The apartment has a small lounge area and kitchen and excellent pressure in the shower although the shower itself was quite small. The breakfast was fantastic and plentiful and the rooms were clean..I would definitely recommend this B & B.

Well appointed decor and furnishings. Very good breakfast. Attention to detail is good. The owner friendly and converstaional. The only reason not 5 stars is because the aftermath of a sink overflowing meant discolouration of a patch on the ceiling and woudl take my own pillows next time as they were a little solid for me. But overall I would recommend to anyone staying in the area.

This was our second stay and we were as pleased as the first time, Friendly staff warm welcome helpful. Breakfast was well cooked and nicely presented. Will call in again. Near to all the shops and city center. Should you not want to walk , a short bus ride away, Get a day pass which will allow you to travel more than once.

I cannot speak too highly of the attention to detail, cleanliness, friendliness, comfort of the room and warmth of welcome that awaited me at Home from Home.
There is off road parking, and on Chesterton road there are good shops, a Bank, a Chemist, a Baker and excellent Pubs a mere 400meters away. I recommend 'The Old Spring' for an excellent meal frequented by locals + students.
