I booked this as it was close, convenient and reasonably priced for Papworth hospital where I had to drop someone for an overnight stay. This is almost a straight line from there
After a moment of not being sure where I was going and locating them, I was shown to my room, shown the well stocked kitchen and lounging areas, given the wifi key, asked what time I wanted breakfast and what I wanted and signed in.
The room was a reasonable size with two beds pushed together, the small bathroom was clean and functional, there was a television in the room, if you didn't want to sit in the lounge.
The kitchen is just like using your own kitchen, you can make teas/coffees, grab a bun, have some toast, and you are left to it. Slept well, although the bed wasn't the most comfortable in the world and being near the road there was a bit of road noise (I always carry earplugs when travelling).
In the morning, came out and the kitchen table was setup ready with serials / etc. Shortly after that my full english breakfast turned up, and it was great - there was more than I could eat. Afterwards chatted with the other guests and was given a lot of advice about the best places to park and see in cambridge from the very friendly hosts.
I normally avoid B&Bs, as I don't really want the interaction in a hotel, but this was definitely the exception to the rule, wouldn't hesitate going back there again.
