My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Benson House and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our host, Julie, was very welcoming and helpful and made us feel at home. Our bedroom was a beautifully remodeled double bedroom with plush furnishings and all of the amenities of a top rated hotel. Julie is a great cook providing a delicious breakfast ranging...

Meeting some ex-work colleagues/friends in Cambridge on Friday evening for dinner an a few beers and needed somewhere to stay overnight and did I land lucky? Oh yes!! Benson House was within 10/15 mins from Kings's Parade and offered home from home comforts and the full english breakfast was fab! I would strongly recommend Benson House :)

It was a shame not being able to stay longer. I was at Benson House just for 1 night for a bizz trip, and I was so happy I didn't go to any of those impersonal big hotels. The place is cozy, the rooms are inviting and cute, and the service provided by Julie is great. I have to say,...

We spent nine nights in the larger double room. The breakfasts are delicious and the breakfast room is lovely. Julia, the proprietor, takes excellent care of her guests and is a joy to visit with. Rooms are very quiet, very clean, and very comfortable. We will certainly return the next time we are in Cambridge.

We received a gentle and caring welcome, complete with a glass of sherry at 6:00pm; the bedroom suite was superb, very comfortable bed, high quality everything, wonderful and imaginative breakfast choices. A five minute walk from the centre of Cambridge.

Julie, who runs Benson House is obviously well suited to the B & B life. We are glad for that, as she made our stay in Cambridge all the better, with this small, intimate accommodation close to the city. The breakfasts were top-notch. The room, whilst small was well-appointed and had the biggest bed we'd ever seen! The only down-side...

A great find. Julie makes you very welcome, as does her cat Bertie! The rooms are spotless, lovely warm shower, great breakfast. Surroundings quiet and slept like a log in a comfortable bed. Very close to Cambridge centre too. Highly recommended.

This is a lovely place. We arrived on a wet afternoon after being stuck in traffic for hours, so it was so nice to walk into this clean, calm haven. It looks small from the outside but is huge and light and airy when you get inside. We were made to feel very welcome and were offered a drink on...
