The place is easy to get to by bus, but is very far away from the centre. The girl who saw to me on arrival was very friendly. The room was basic but comfortable. The door to the bathroom looked warped! Heating was on the whole time and I couldn't turn it off! The breakfast was not what it said... More

I was unable to gain access to this guest house on arrival and despite endless calls to the number given on the paperwork and emails, I could not get a response. At 11pm I was forced to find alternative accomodation. Unfortunately I had 3 nights booked and eventually managed to find someone in the next day. The young lady refused... More

In a residential area this guest house dissapoints from the first moment. A strange smell greats one on entry having struggled with the code system on the front door. Nothing personal about this experience at all. Rooms cramped and feel in need of upgrading. Tea and coffee facilities in room. Road noise thrown in for free outside. The smallest TV... More

I stayed here last year before christmas as a last resort really. The double room was very small for two people, the sheets were clean, the decor was dusty and needed updating. To be honest I was that bothered about this as we just wanted something simple + cheap. The real annoyances came in the morning. You have to share... More

Damp, dank & dusty. No mention during booking or on website that full English breakfast is £5 per head extra. We won't be back.

I needed a cheap and accessible place for one night in Cambridge. This was it. Cheap (£42) and very accessible. My room (No.1) was on the ground floor just in from the front door. Two beds, toilet, shower, sink, TV. Not the Ritz but well worth the money. Parking was fine (there were 5 cars in the car park including... More
