I visited Cambridge with my partner, and we stayed there for 2 nights.
I felt like my Cambridge trip really only began upon arriving at the Hobsons House. The reason is the attention and the care to the guests that the owner reveals.
The room was confortable and big enough for me and my partner to be in. The window has a great view to the garden, and the garden is really a thing to be seen.
The bathroom was good enough, I can't say I felt uncomfortable in any way.
The continental breakfast was the best meal I had through the day.
Location wise, it is pretty good. You can visit the city center by foot, while enjoying the views of the beautiful gardens of Cambridge, and some education facilities along the way.
As someone in Cambridge for the first time, the owner guided me through some places to visit and some things to do. We saw and did most of them, and I regret I didn't stay longer.
The things I liked the most were the conversations with the owner. They were wonderful, and I learned a lot about many things. That kind of attention made me feel like a special guest, and that is priceless. There was even a personal touch we left there, in the end.
The downside was the negligible spider web we found on the wardrobe, and some dust yet to be cleaned. Nothing that made regret ever staying there.
Definitely it will be a place I will stay on if I ever visit Cambridge ever again. Thank you.
