15 minute's walk from the town centre, this old hotel is the kind of budget place a backpacker would enjoy. Most of the amenities are dated, there is certainly no air conditioning (so be wary of that in Summer), and the bathroom is incredibly tiny, so much so that the basin is actually outside the bathroom in the main room. That being said, we had the family room, which had two single beds and a double, so our room was actually really large. You wouldn't get much privacy from whoever you're sharing the room with though, so make sure your well acquainted, as you can't dry off in the bathroom after a shower because of the lack of space and it is rather uncomfortable sitting on the toilet with the door closed given it's literally inches from your face. Consider this like renting a room in someone else's house but with your own private bathroom.

Tired looking bnb.
Room very tired looking. Vinyl flooring felt a bit sticky underfoot. Cobwebs to both corners of the windows. Kettle water not emptied before arrival. Tv remote had lots of ingrained dirt & I cleaned it thoroughly myself before using Shower ok but rain shower attachment dripped pink algae blobs due to not being cleaned properly. Bed mattress very soft but comfortable. Headboard very stained. Room was quiet. Did not stay for breakfast. Being Cambridge you pay for what you get I suppose.

4/10 Fair

Owner lovely, but misleading initial photo
Owner was lovely however....I use about 4 times a week for business and after 10 stays at hotels I receive a free stay complimentary for the sum of the average hotels stayed at -this is usually about £75-£95 worth of complimentary hotel stays twice every six weeks It costs me over £1000 to receive this and I look forwards to using them, feels like a nice little rebate. My grievance on this particular occasion is that often when in Cambridge, hotels can be difficult to find for an acceptable amount, often some can be £150-£200 each night. On this occasion I accept it was getting near 8pm and I was worn out and had been trying to source a hotel for about 90 mins. What really gets me here is that the first photo to come up is the picture of what looks like a country house manor type hotel and in fact it says property grounds. After searching for so long I admit I didn't go into too much detail and check but on that first impression, and last minute, I thought it ideal, and booked, using my free night which was for the value of £82 but the hotel cost a little of £65. When the confirmation came through I was shocked and dismayed that I then saw what looked like a run down BandB. I understand who it caters for, but the initial photo massively mis-represents Bed clean but uncomfy and bathroom is tiny and a partitioned after thought. Also the floor was wet underneath the lino, not pleasant at all
