“5 star B&B”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

We booked largely on the basis of reviews we'd read, and our experience bears out the numerous positive comments we'd seen. Very comfortable, well maintained and spotlessly clean, very good breakfast, owners welcoming and helpful. We didn't need to go into the city centre, but the bus service looks good. We tried one of the pubs recommended by the owners (Plough in Fen Ditton, about 25 min walk) and had a very enjoyable dinner.
It might seem a little pricey for a B&B (although perhaps not by Cambridge standards!) but well worth it, and to us much better value than a chain hotel - we've never stayed in one yet that met this standard. If we come back to Cambridge, Autumn House will be at the top of our shortlist.

Room Tip: We had room 1, a deluxe double, which was very well equipped and spacious with two comfortable chair...

I spent 5 nights with Autumn House. The owner has done a great job to make my stay a comfortable one. The room is in cosy decor, simple, nice and clean though occassionaly you may get some traffic noise if you room is facing the main road. The owner has put lots of effort to keep it to a high standard. In my opinion, it is even better than lots of hotels. The daily breakfast i have is another good experience. Cook to order and very tasty English style. Parking is conveneice and you have 2 min walk to a bus stop for bus to town center and train station. Overall, a 5 stars B&B. Will stay again whenever vsiting Cambridge!

Room Tip: Room facing the main ros may have noise.

A credit to Al and Sharon who manage Autumn House. Immaculate, well equipped rooms and tasty breakfasts - simple as that.

For those coming by train, just catch the Citi 3 bus to Ditton Walk, and it's only another few metres up Newmarket Road to Autumn House.

The walk to the City Centre is lovely if you go via the River. Some people may find the walk too far, alternatively the bus services are frequent.

We stayed 3 nights in total and will definitely be back.

Autumn House B&B ticks all the boxes. Super location , excellent quality and great service. It also has off road parking and is walking distance to the bus stop which was also a great service right through until 11.30pm. Much better value than a hotel for sure. We also walked into Cambridge centre one evening along the river which was a pleasant walk.

Al & Sharon De Luca were wonderful hosts. If you want a great Breakfast, then you must stay at the Autumn House. As for the room, extremely comfortable, exceptionally clean, recently renovated and in a great location. Very close to the bus stop which can take you everywhere in the area. Slept like a baby in the very quiet room. Best Value in Cambridge!

The house is absolutely immaculate, as are the rooms and ensuite bathroom, the decor looks very new. Sharon and Al are exceptional hosts. Our bed was very comfortable and the room light and airy. with bottles of water and packets of tea, coffee, horllcks or hot cocolate. The breakfast was superb Al took our orders we all had something different but that was no problem. They asked us what our plans were and suggested the nicest way to walk into the city centre, gave us advice on the buses and marked on a map places of interest, we were there for a wedding in Magdalene College and they arranged for our taxi pickup, we did not use them but they also recommended the nearby restaurants



Sharon and Al recommended some nearby restaurants,

Wonderful hosts, Sharon and Al, went out of their way to make our stay lovely. They cook a terrific breakfast. They loaned us a walking tour guidebook, and recommended a walk along the river that was a highlight of our visit. They explained which bus to take if we didn't want to walk into the town center - very easy! They arranged taxis for when I had to go to where I was working. They even cut their evening out short to go back and meet the person delivering our bag which the airline had temporarily lost, so we'd be sure to get it.

The house is all newly redone, charming decor, quiet, light and airy. Our bed was quite comfortable. We could keep our room at the temperature we preferred - some B&Bs keep the rooms too warm for us.

Sharon and Al recommended some nearby restaurants, which were really outstanding. You can't go wrong staying at Autumn House and following their advice!

This was a combined business and pleasure trip for me and my husband - Trip Advisor only lets me choose one below.

Room Tip: We were in #4, I expect they are all just as nice.
