“Excellent - Excellent!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

We could not fault the presentation which was perfect for our two night stay. The upstairs bedroom was immaculate, spotlessly clean, has tea making facilities with fresh milk available from the fridge in the hall. A very comfortable double bed gave us two good nights sleep. The bathroom with shower cubical was perfect for our needs and again spotless.The breakfast was excellent, Jane our friendly hostess, the owner would prepare and cook anything asked for and serve it personally. Finches is close to the city centre with good access both by bus or bicycle and there is free off road car parking. If we visit Cambridge again we would pre book at Finches to make sure we booked the best! Thank you Jane.

Spotless rooms, with everything in you could ask for and good value. Beveridge tray/exceptional good choice of tea & coffee, + biscuits. Bathroom contents - this exceptionally well facilitated. Our bedroom was on the ground floor at the front of the house and very spacious. There is a fridge in the hallway for any guests who wish to have fresh milk or cold water. Jane showed us the upstairs room (one flight of stairs), which has a larger bathroom and smaller bedroom area (but still larger than some of the hotels we have stayed in!). There is an old thatched roof pub about 20-30 min walk or 5 min drive - 'The Old Crown"' in Girton (book a table if you wish to eat here, very popular!). On ideal bus route 2 mins around the corner. Jane is a wealth of information, if you are wondering about where to go or what to do - ask Jane. Both Jane and Nigel are lovely people, both welcoming and helpful and you do not feel it is troublesome to ask anything of them. We stayed 4 nights and had such a lovely stay.

We recently spent 3 nights at this lovely house. The location was perfect as we were visiting relatives nearby. Our room was immaculate with a very comfortable bed and it had all the amenities that we required. Breakfast was excellent with a very varied selection on offer, Jane will cook anything asked for. Jane & Nigel were extremely friendly and gave us lots of useful information. We hope to return to Cambridge sometime and would definitely want to stay at Finches its a great place

We spent three days at Finches Bed & Breakfast, which is a 20 minute walk to all the colleges of Cambridge University. The B&B is in a quiet neighborhood, a short distance from the action of downtown Cambridge. For those who don't want to walk, there is a bus stop close to the front door. Our immaculate room was on the first floor, and the guests have a private entrance so you don't have to walk through the owner's private living area. There are three guest rooms, so the hosts can give everyone special attention. The room was large, by British standards and well equipped. The breakfast choices were lovely. Jane and Nigel were very welcoming, and didn't mind our late in the evening arrival. They gave us many ideas of off the beaten track sights to see while in Cambridge. We plan to go back to Cambridge in 2015, and we will book with Finches.

Room Tip: Two rooms are on the ground floor. If you don't want to climb stairs, request a ground floor ro...

My husband and I have just spent a few days celebrating our anniversary in Cambridge. You would think that as a cycling city, it would be easy to find accommodation that could offer secure cycling storage for your bicycles - having contacted a number of hotels who all failed. I moved my attention to finding a Bed and Breakfast that might be able to assist - well they say things happen for a reason and I have to say finding Finches Bed & Breakfast was a true Gem. From my initial contact with the company a family run business I could not fault them! They were able to offer secure parking for our bicycles and they are really nice people, who welcome you into their home!

I would recommended this establishment in a heart beat, the couple know Cambridge well and share their knowledge. I just hope that they will be able to take my booking again in the future!!

Wonderful Place

Thank you for your lovely review and for choosing to spend your anniversary weekend with us. It was our pleasure to be able to accommodate the bicycles and your cycling experiences have certainly inspired me to oil my chain and bring my bicycle out of hibernation!! We look forward to accommodating you again soon.

I recently stayed in this lovely B&B at Cambridge. The place is homely, imacculate clean and decorated elegantly and very very comfortable. The owners friendly and warm. This is one of the best places I have ever stayed and the breakfast served is more than first class espeacially for those taking care of their health. Much better than staying in a 4star hotel at a much better price.
Thank you for the pleasant stay

Jane and Nigel really make you feel at home in their home, looking after all the details and ensuring you get the best information you might need about visiting Cambridge.
The room we were in was not large, but just the size you need for a one night stop over. And it made us feel very snug and cozy. Breakfast was delicious.
Getting to the town centre from the Finches is just a 5 minute bus-trip, and the bus stops just around the corner onto the main street.
A wonderful place in a beautiful town!

It was a pleasure to welcome you both to Finches and sorry we were unable to accommodate you after your visit to London. It’s always nice when guests have an enjoyable stay and we hope you will contact us again should you find yourself visiting Cambridge sometime in the future.
