Very comfortable bed and room. Really enjoyed our stay in the family room! Thank you!! The en suite was fabulous, the shower was great and the decoration of the room was tastefully done. The bed was so comfortable and I could have stayed in it a All day!!

Stayed for a night last weekend. Carolina was very hospitable and accommodating. She was very understanding when we told her we'd be out for a late one and didn't know what time we'd be back in. She was up and ready to cook us breakfast in the morning but we didn't quite make it, and she was understanding. Charming and...

A scrupulously clean and stylish Guest House. Such a comfortable bed ... and a good night's sleep. The breakfast was amazing too. Stayed 2 nights over busy weekend in June & the service was great. Will be back soon. The host was simply lovely. Would highly recommend

Just returned from a night at the Carolina with my boyfriend. Owner greeted us... Saying she wasnt expecting two... She was expecting one person, though confirmation clearly stated two. So she rushed around grabbing more towels, cups and glasses. So not a great start... Basic room with a nice big bed. Dingy robe hanging up, nice iron burn on the...

I enjoyed my stay here. My room was large and freshly renovated. There’s a large bay window making it bright and airy. The bathroom was tiled in black marble and featured a large bathtub. The breakfast offered many healthy choices. The new dining room is lovely. There were intermittent problems with the wi-fi but I think that was the fault...

If you want to pay your money, overlook a shopping trolley and the 'neighbours' drunkenly arguing, shouting and threatening each other and you (for looking at them), then this is the place for you. Don't dare ask for your money back. The proprietor will promise you a full refund and will then take the money from your bank anyway. Not...

Slightly quirky set up in this Semi Detached guest house but all very pleasant. With it being Cambridge you don't get anything (decent) for under £70 anywhere and so for £80 B & B a couple of miles out of the town centre this is completely acceptable.. I have stayed in most of the guest houses around this area as...
