My usual Cambridge B&B being fully booked, I found this one on the web without checking it on Trip Advisor. Mistake!
The only human contact I had with the place in a three-night stay was with the pleasant young man who checked me in and showed me up to my clean, comfortable and fairly spacious room. He also gave me the password for the wifi, which unfortunately didn't work. I never discovered the correct one, because after that I never saw a human being in the place. There were no notices about breakfast times, but on the first morning, a Sunday, I went down at 8.00 and found the Dining Room door locked. I went down again at 8.30 and 9.00, after which I took myself off into town to buy breakfast in a coffee shop. When I returned that evening, the bed had not been made.
On the Monday morning, I found the Dining Room door open, but no signs of life. I hung around for ten minutes, periodically coughing loudly and calling "Hello!". No luck. I repeated the experiment half an hour later, then took myself off into town ...
On the third morning, the morning of my departure, I found the Dining Room door locked again. Since I had paid in advance on the web, I returned to my room, packed, left the room key in the door, and took myself off into town ...
A bizarre experience. NOT RECOMMENDED!!
