Mowbray B&B
Ranked #103 of 123 Cambridge B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 January 2008

The house was warm and clean, which is about as far as I can go in the positives.

On the other side, the staff (who weren't the owners as they seem to live elsewhere) were not friendly, especially the man who took our key in the morning, and the house has barely been converted from its original purpose. There was virtually no storage space for clothes, there was only one bedside table and light for the double bed and the whole place had the air of a (non) conversion done on the cheap.

And the "continental breakfast" was a bad joke: packets of instant coffee (which weren't replenished overnight) long-life juice and milk, a couple of packets of cereal, two packets of biscuits - and two packets of jam (what were we supposed to do with this: spread it on the biscuits?).

Finally, at £58 a night this wasn't cheap and it certainly wasn't cheerful. We wouldn't stay there again or recommend it to anyone else, and giving it a two-blob rating is being very generous.
