We were visiting our daughter who is attending Cambridge University and she found this gem for us. It was not far from her accommodation or the gorgeous town center of Cambridge. The room was clean and comfortable. The host went above and beyond for us, making accommodation for my daughter to have breakfast with us and also making my birthday...

I recently stayed at Benson House with some colleagues, having stayed there before and as usual it was excellent. The rooms are all individual and very comfortable. Breakfast is amazing with a huge choice and always tasty. It is within easy walking distance of the town centre

We had a single night in a very comfortable and quiet room, slept like logs in a comfortable bed, had a lovely breakfast with a wide choice of very well cooked and uncooked food, and helpful advice from our landlady.

I was fortunate to stay here for 2 nights before my Cambridge University classes this summer. Julie was fantastic - she communicated with me as needed before my visit and was extremely welcoming and helpful throughout my stay. The house is lovely and service is wonderful, with a custom breakfast each morning. Julie treats her guests well and enjoys getting...

Stylish and comfortable ... benson house is so close to some lovely indian curry restaurants and a short walk to the centre of town..Thanks julie.

This is a pleasant place, although the attic room I got is a bit of a challenge that won't fit everyone, i.e., you may want to ask a non-attic room which is more convenient (a bit larger, less chances of bumping your head, easier to work in). The breakfast is great and so is the service of the owner (?)....

Dear Vughtenaar, Thank-you for taking the time to review your stay at Benson House, glad you enjoyed your short stay, sorry about the sloping ceilings, but that's the character you get in a Victorian House !. Julie

Julie and award-winning pussycat Bertie were so welcoming, and our room (no. 7) was beautifully appointed. Breakfast this morning was excellent! I think it also speaks well of The Benson House that both our taxi drivers knew it by name when we said where we were headed. We will be sure to recommend this lovely establishment to our friends back...

We stayed for one night in a double room at the front of the house. We thought it might be noisy but it was fine. The room was immaculately decorated and very comfortable with a good sized en suite bathroom with shower. The breakfast was superb with a large choice. There was parking at the rear of the property.
