Sandra owns this guesthouse and runs it on her own so it is a true credit to her. She is lovely, friendly and welcoming. Everywhere‘s spotlessly clean and fresh. Ask for a room at the back if you don’t want noise when its warm weather because, if the window is open at the front, we found the traffic noise loud...

We stayed two consecutive Saturdays at this guesthouse. Having lived in Cambridge for three years we picked this guesthouse as it was close to the wedding we were attending. The guesthouse is spotless and our room was immaculate. The bathroom was pristine and had a lovely shower. Our overall experience could not have been bettered. The breakfast was amazing. There...

Having just spent another weekend at Allenbell (unsure if it's our 4th or 5th visit), again we leave not disappointed. Standard and service never disappoints. Your breakfast will set you up for the day.

My daughter and I stayed here six nights or so while looking for a place to relocate in the area. The landlady is absolutely lovely. The breakfast is plentiful with lots to choose from. The room is immaculate and the en-suite exceptionally clean and it did not have the usual musty smell that you can get with English en-suite conversions....

Very clean room, pleasant host, good off street parking. Bathroom was spot on - it all 'worked' properly, was modern and, again. v clean. Breakfast - well more than plenty to choose from. Cooked breakfast - just fine (esp poached eggs), but would probably need to halve the amount provided (I did) and it would be nice if more was...

I have stayed in this guest house twice, once in 2006 and again in August 2012. The place has not changed much, it is as charming as ever, with nice rooms and a lot of TLC taken to decorate them. The rooms have tea and coffee making facilities, nice en suite bathrooms and wireless internet. Sandra, the hostess, is a...

I chose Allenbell Guest House from browsing their website once we'd decided to go the Cambridge Folk Festival and I'm so glad we did. Our hostess couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. Our room was spotlessly clean and fresh and our King Size bed was so, so comfortable. There was ample tea/coffee making facilities, which we took full advantage...

Last minute booking, but couldn't have found a better place. Everywhere was spotless, and appeared brand new. Breakfast was excellent, and perfectly cooked. A warm welcome, and pleasant stay. I doubt anyone would be disappointed with this B&B.
