“Very enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

I meant to write a review after my visit and have unfortunately only gotten around to it now. I booked one of the double rooms with a 4 poster bed. It came with a bottle of bubbly and chocolates as well. Breakfast was included, parking was available and it was about 15 minutes walk into Cambridge. So for £85 for the night, I thought it was quite reasonable.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very tasty and freshly made (rather than a buffet).

All in all very happy with the stay and would go again.

This property is quite ok for a short stay in Cambridge. Neat and clean and with a very helpful and polite staff.
The building is quite old and that is evident in the rooms, however they are in a decent state.
The location is not the best, not really in the center, however as the city is not very big, you can get there after 30 minutes walk or by public transport.
Overall, a good place if you're not looking for anything fanzy and just need a place to sleep.

Me and a friend stayed in the ensuite rooms, you get what you pay for, so we paid more for ensuites but it was worth it! The room was lovely, the staff were kind and helpful, would definitely stay again

Decent parking space, friendly and helpful staff, good location, clean room, no problems with the internet access, breakfast... acceptable, could be a bit better, OK bathroom, very warm, and for Cambridge - very low price. Recommended!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

I stayed here for one night in the single ensuite room. It was ok for a night, but I'd probably try somewhere else next time. The room was fairly small - as I expected for a single room, but my gripe was that it was a bit drab and could have used a fresh coat of paint and carpet without stains on. The bathroom was clean, but had an irritating shower curtain of the sort that that envelopes you as soon as you switch the shower on. The bathroom was pretty small and inevitably the whole thing got wet when you had a shower! The staff seemed friendly and were accommodating when I asked to check out an hour late.

I did happen to glimpse one of the double rooms which looked considerably nicer so I suspect I was unlucky with the single ensuite. I also visited friends staying at the Travelodge central which seemed nicer for probably a similar price. As for the location, its a pleasant area near the river, about 15mins walk to the town centre and on the Citi 2 bus route. If you're looking for relatively cheap accommodation you won't it much closer to the centre - although I'd probably opt for something on the same side of town as the station as a preference.

Me and my partner stayed here for two nights a while ago for my birthday.
Room was fantastic. yes a little small but beautifuly decorated and clean.
Staff were extremely friendly and breakfast was lovely.
It has taken a while for me to write this review but after seeing the negative comments though i would as it would be such a shame for people to be put off.
Perfect location as well :)

The room was very clean, good sized and great for the price that I paid, which included a lovely breakfast as well. The location is a bit far if you want to tour around Cambridge university, but for the price it is expected. It is not far from restaurants though or convenient stores/markets. I find the B&B quite charming, and the receptionist was very nice and helpful. I did not bring an adapter with coming from the US, and she tried her best to find me one, which was a huge help!

I would definitely stay there again the next time if I were in Cambridge with ample time for sightseeing.
