Good Hotel Guide Review

Guests this year continue to endorse Liz and Rob Cameron’s ‘conveniently located’ city-centre B&B. ‘It is a great place to stay,’ said one visitor. ‘A delightful and refreshing choice,’ said another. The Camerons, ‘generous’, ‘hospitable’ hosts, have smartly refurbished their Victorian house, once the student home of the Duke of Gloucester. Newspapers, guides and books are available in the ‘pleasant’ sitting room; a fridge and honesty bar on the first-floor landing are ‘a good idea’. Bedrooms are praised. ‘Our room, up two small flights of stairs, had a tiny sitting room that opened on to a small but very comfortable and tastefully decorated bedroom; French windows led to a private decking area.’ Another guest liked her ‘attractive, quiet’, top-floor room in the building next door. ‘There was good bedside lighting; we slept well in our large, luxurious bed.’ Breakfast, with a ‘marvellous selection’ of home-made compotes and jams, is ‘first rate’. ‘There was an abundance of fresh fruits, yogurts and wonderful breads; excellent grilled bacon and baked tomatoes. We enjoyed the soft operatic background music.’ ‘Well placed for transport links.’ (Jackie Tunstall-Pedoe, MG)

Guest comments

'This delightful B&B is just perfect for a stay in Cambridge. Each room is presented so beautifully. Liz, the owner, was helpful in every way to make our stay so perfect. Breakfast was amazing with beautiful fresh, organic ingredients. Location couldn't have been better for visiting all the sites. ' - Viv Tunstall - July, 2016
'It is a real treasure. Liz was very friendly. At breakfast the selection of home-made compotes and jams was marvellous. Our room, Cambridge, up two flights of stairs, had a tiny sitting room, a tastefully decorated bedroom and a private decking area. A good bathroom with a large bath and an overhead shower. A great place to stay. ' - Jackie and Hugh Tunstall-Pedoe - March, 2016
'We very much enjoyed our stay. The Gloucester room, on the first floor had a reasonable amount of space while the bathroom was roomy with modern fittings. The walk-in wardrobe in the lobby had lots of room. The duvets were light and cosy. The sitting room is pleasant. Beethoven’s 9th was playing as we went in for breakfast but as we were the only guests our request for it to be turned off was immediately accepted by Paul, the charming housekeeper. We were able to book the parking space round the back. The Clarendon Arms at the other end of Victoria Street is an excellent “proper” pub. ' - Michael Gwinnell - January, 2015
