Acorn Guest House
Pleasantly surprised.
I really enjoyed my stay at the Acorn, the bed was amazingly comfortable and one of the best I have slept in in a very long time. Breakfast was excellent also. It is a nice walk into the city and there is a bus stop a short distance from the place as well. The Acorn is a little dated but our room was very clean. The only negative I would have, however this is a personal thing, would be black out blinds in the room but what there was adequate normally but not so much in summer. WiFi was very good as well. The Acorn was good value for money in comparison to some of the Cambridge prices for similar and I would assume much worse.
