This is a nice B&B with easy walking access to Cambridge and the colleges. We stayed in the attic room 2nd floor (level 3 American). It was small, but comfortable. The breakfast was very good. I booked with a Credit Card, but cash seemed to work better for paying the bill. We had free parking and a comfortable bed for a reasonable price. I have read some of the other reviews and yes I can say they might be accurate, but if you want large room w/o character stay in the large hotel chains. I enjoyed my stay here. I was here less than 12 hours and most of the time I was asleep. My Brother and I (2 men) stayed 1 night in 2 twin beds attic. I am 6 feet 3 inches tall and 255 pounds and the bed was long enough.
The location is roughly about half mile walk from where all the sights you want to see are, but it is not a bad walk and there are plenty of pubs and restaurants if you get thirsty, tired or hungry on the walk. There is a nice small convenience/grocery store about 2 or 3 small blocks away I think it was a TESCO Express. This is always a plus for us as we can buy a just before bed beer in our room. I have to be honest this is an older B&B with all the charm. Narrow stair case, small rooms and all, but in the case of our room they made it a very comfortable stay despite the buildings limitation. We still had hot coffee and tea in our room and an alarm clock. The alarm clock was the only alarm clock I think we saw in any of the 6 rooms we stayed in the UK. I felt like we got good value for our money.
