    Guest rating

    Check in was quick and friendly. The gentleman who checked us in was very helpful in giving us a map of the local area and highlighting where places of interest/restaurants were and he carried my bag to our room. The room itself was nice but on the small side (room 5 in the annex). The tv was good and freeview was available. The gentleman serving breakfast was attentive and re-filled coffee when empty.

    The bed was two singles pushed together, not a double. The bathroom was so small we had to side-step into the shower cubicle-there was no bath. The shower was no more than a dribble and was very noisey! You could clearly hear people in the next room especially when they used their bathroom as the extractor fan was so loud. We didn't ask to move as the guest house was fully booked. The breakfast was awful. Orange juice (no re-fill) or cereal and no fruit option if English breakfast ordered. The fried bread had never even seen oil/frying pan, scrambled egg was more milk than egg, frozen mini sausage and the bacon was burnt. More a 3 star than a 4 star and overpriced at that!

    adequate and comfortable

    Not sure why it is 4 star. Have stayed in better 2 star. Also a bit expensive for single occupation.

    Very good

    This bed and breakfast was clean and comfortable and the staff were pleasant and efficient. The walk from the centre of Cambridge was fairly long, especially after a tiring day sightseeing, but was certainly do-able.

    The shower door, the handle was part broken. The bed not very comfortable, a loose tap, and thats it.
