We stayed here for a few nights when visiting friends. The room was beautiful and pristine. The bed was one of the most comfortable I'd ever slept in. Having free wifi, a curved smart tv and a coffee machine (nespresso) was a massive luxurious bonus. The bathroom was clean and modern with high quality towels and toiletries supplied. I can't...

Loved my stay at Lynwood house, really perfect little B&B with every detail just done to perfection. I stayed two nights for work in their single room and loved the amazing breakfast (so much choice, everything made fresh and delicious), the super luxurious linens and just overall how comfy everything is in the room. Walking distance to some great pubs... More

This B&B is set slightly out of Cambridge town centre but is an easy walk or regular buses run from pretty much outside the house. Our room was an ok size and the bathroom was airy and clean, the bed and pillows were very comfy. The couple who run the B&B are very helpful and will leave a key in... More

We recently stayed at Lynwood House and were really pleased with the accommodation and breakfast. We stayed in room 7 which was bright, airy and very clean. the owners were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The location is good and is a 15 minute walk to the city centre. We would defintely recommend this B&B.

We loved our stay at Lynwood House. Julie is a perfect host and delivers a delicious home cooked full English breakfast. We had a large, very comfortable and clean room with a bath in the ensuite. It is an easy 15 minute walk to the centre of town and there are a number of dinner options close by.

This B & B in a modest building is a gem. The couple who run it take great pride in the improvements and updates to the property that they have made. I had the loft room (no. 7) which is just right for a family (Queen and 2 double beds) It was the best breakfast I have had at a... More

My friend & I stayed at Lynwood House recently, & highly recommend it to all. It's a short, pleasant walk into Cambridge centre and an approximate £7 taxi ride from the train station.
