I was in Cambridge for University meetings. My first choice hotels were too expensive, so I looked at B&B. Lynwood House was great. It is spotlessly clean, newly refurbished and about a 15 minute walk from town.
The room I had was spacious. It was number 5, at the front of the property. A double bed, tea / coffee facilities, work space, huge TV, and an en-suite bathroom (big walk in shower, 2 basins).
The highlight of the stay was breakfast which was a perfect sausages, bacon, eggs... Sometimes these can be called a greasy fry, but Lynwood had the exception. It was perfect, no grease just perfectly cooked really tasty food. A great start to the day.
My only concern was the distance from the town. I walked a few times which is about 15 minutes. It is no big deal. If you do get fed up with walking then taxis take a few minutes, are booked by the owners for you and arrive in about 10 minutes.
I stayed just 2 nights and will always pick Lynwood house in the future when visiting Cambridge.
