Fabulous 8.6 From 45 reviews

Fair 4.0
Two nights in Cambridge
I thought the place was way overpriced. The water in the shower had a very light flow. The breakfast was a continental breakfast that had to be ordered and was delivered to the room. The air conditioner was very loud. I would give it 3 stars out of 5

Good 6.0
Not what you think!
The room that I stayed in was not very accommodating. The AC was in the living room and only a little fan in the bedroom to deal with the humidity. It wasn’t at all as what to expect in a B&B for the price I spent. The access to room was steep, the bed was ok, and the bathroom was mediocre. No amenities that were even close to luxurious. Only breakfast available was English muffin and coffee. After re checking the site, the room I stayed in wasn’t even included in the photos and wasn’t close to similar to the esthetic of the other rooms.

I think I was scammed. I was told that I got the scholar room - but there was no air conditioner, no cable TV and very uncomfortable, poor quality bed. The room I got was nothing like the ones showed in the pictures and I had to climb poorly lit steep staircase to my room. There was no one to even help with luggage. A very poor experience overall!

Incredible B&B!
What a delightful weekend at the Parkside on Ellery! Many thanks to David for all the little touches in the house to make our stay perfect. Beautiful Victorian room. Lovely little garden outside for a drink before dinner. And breakfast delivered to our room each morning. Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you!
