“Perfect base to explore Cambridge”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

This is an excellent B&B - Guido and Maria couldn't be more welcoming or friendly, the rooms are extremely comfortable, and the house is in a really quiet location, while still being very convenient for the centre.

The breakfast is particularly good and the attention to detail throughout our stay was immaculate.

Highly recommended.

We have just spent a great weekend in Cambridge and at Worth house. We booked 2 rooms plus the family suite. It was a great arrangement for us as the family suite has a sitting room and conservatory. Maria and Guido were great hosts and the breakfast was wonderful. We will be visiting Cambridge regularly and would always go back - sorry Guido but we will be back!

Second visit to Worth house (would have been third but we couldn't get in last time). As usual made to feel very welcome by Guido and Maria. The room was lovely, everything you could possibly want. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The room was a little warm for my liking but that is just a personal choice. Lovely big bathroom with a great roll top bath and a fab shower. The toiletries even smell delicious. Fluffy towels and bathrobes too what more could you want. Breakfast was delicious, lots of choice and our own toaster on the table. Its a nice walk along the river into town as well. Just hope we can get in on our next visit to Cambridge!

Highly recommend this b&b. Was in room 4 this stay and very nice. Breakfast was excellent and the attention to detail for customer comfort is excellent. If I was being fussy then because the bathroom has a boiler in it then I'd like to see a co2 alarm but that's being really picky. Great place highly recommend

I have stayed in this B and B whenever I have been working in Cambridge for the past 5 years or so. The warm welcome given by Guido and Maria is exceptional, the rooms all very comfortable (including the apartment, where I have also stayed with my family) and the breakfasts delicious and plentiful! They are always thinking of new facilities for the rooms and new items for the breakfast menus. I can't recommend this place highly enough. I look forward to staying here every time I have to be in Cambridge for a few days.

Room Tip: All rooms are fine but rooms facing the garden are a little quieter.

Guido and Maria were terrific hosts, making us feel very welcome in their B&B. We had loads of space in the apartment at the back of the house with access straight to the garden; ideal for the kids. Worth House is within easy walking distance to the centre of the beautiful city, and close to good places to eat. But don't go out for breakfast; Maria's cooking is wonderful and we were well looked after with everything we could possibly wish for. All the thoughtful touches, including emergency box, were appreciated. Would highly recommend and will return again.

A unique B&B - Guido is a friendly and very welcoming host - our room (Number 1 ) was outstanding and spacious. This B&B outshines others we have stayed at. Our room was ready despite our early arrival. The Worth House B&B is conveniently situated to the town, being a nice walk along the River Cam - about 20 minutes into the City Centre.

Our room was tastefully decorated - Boutique style - nothing had been overlooked - from the welcome tray with a good selection of teas and coffees, to the lovely luxurious bath towels, walk in shower and really comfortable bed and pillows. Attention to detail has to be credited to our hosts Guido and Maria. Breakfast menu was lovely with individual toasters on each table - a nice idea - which meant your toast was ready when you wanted it and hot!

Guido and Maria should be really proud of what they have achieved - obviously they have worked hard and can only say that the "Italian" hospitality and influence makes their B&B outstanding and unique - would have no hesitation in recommending their B&B (although I would want to keep it a secret) and would definitely stay here again and would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this as the place to stay in Cambridge - 10 out of 10. There is nothing but praise for our wonderful stay at Worth House.
