We turned up and she hurried us in, demanding extremely rudely that we wipe our feet properly and leave our shoes outside the room. She then told us we could not use our rooms between 10am and 5pm even though travelling with very young children. We had no idea why.. as we had payed for the room! which was also extremely over priced for the service you actually got! the rudest landlady we have ever encountered in all our travels and we are very surprised that she can make a living in the hospitality business as she is not in the least hospitable! her husband seemed friendly, it would be a better business if she left it to him. We would not recommend this B&B to anybody and have already told many of our local friends to avoid this place at all costs!!

The owner obviously felt bad about having guests. She would not grant access to our rooms during the day despite we have a 1 year old baby. I´ver never experienced anyone more unfriendly.
We left - even tough we were a group of 9 we rather took the effort to find another place - it was just horrible.
On top of that all, rooms were small, they had no bathrooms, and the price was far too high.
Seriously, I am a frequent traveller, but this has been the very worst experience ever.

I didn't hate it but if I could choose to go somewhere else, yes I would give it a try. It was set in a pretty good place in relevance to the park & ride in Trumpington. The breakfast is quit good too the eggs are from there own chickens but personally I thought that the sausages were pretty good as well. But I think the rooms weren't very nice we stayed in the attic which was rather small for three people and the television was quite small and I didn't really like having to share a bathroom with other people. If you want to find a place to stay for a couple of nights but your not on a really tight budget this is a good place

A very unfriendly welcome which rapidly became just plain rude. We felt unable to stay even though our children were ready for bed.

Situated in a pretty location convenient for Cambridge, this guest house was spotlessly clean and the facilities were good for the price. The proprietors were friendly and helpful and there were good local pubs for evening food. It is fairly close to the M11; so there was some road noise, but not enough to worry us inside the house. We certainly slept better here than we have anywhere except home. All in all we thought it was very good value.

We have given full marks to this guest house, it's in a lovely area close to Cambridge, not far from Stanstedand and very close to the Duxford air field. Excellent breakfast in a lovely sunny positioned dinning room, enough to last throughout the day. The owners are very friendly, and go out of their way to be of assistance.
