Our room, No 8, was on the top floor, nicely decorated. Beds were very comfy. Bathroom is a little way down the corridor, not ideal, would prefer en suite as you have to pass another room. The sliding door was very difficult to close. Only a bath towel provided so a good idea to take a hand towel. Breakfast on...

Inga couldn't be more welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for her or Helen. My room was clean, fresh and cosy. My room faced the road. It was very quiet and easy to sleep. Looking forward to a return visit!

I stayed here for 2 nights with my girlfriend when visiting friends in Cambridge. Fantastic central location very close to the rail station and a 15 minute walk from central Cambridge. Very clean and friendly - Inga made us feel really at home. A perfect place to explore Cambridge from.

Our family (2 adults + 1 3yo boy) stayed in this B&B was very good, we felt like home. The owner, Mrs Inga, is particularly nice and helpful. We booked also for a parking place and met a little problem with it when we arrived, but Mrs Inga solved our problem quickly. Breakfast is excellent and fresh. You can find...

Where do I start? Let's speak about the booking first! I phoned to do it. Inga already sounded very friendly to me and I was even eager to come and meet her. Then, when I arrived she was very charming to me and answered at all me questions without problem. The room: it was very cosy and so clean. I...

Stayed 2 nights at this B&B. It is locaed in a convenient location about 20 min. walk from the centre. Otherwise, nothing good to write about it. Rooms are small. The toilet is tiny and there is no proper door!!!!Unbelievable. There is no cupboard. Barely a place to hang something. The towels we got were old - very poor! No...

A very brief stay as I was in Cambridge for an early morning appointment and arrived quite late. However, Tenison Towers was a pleasant surprise - very convenient location less than 5 minutes walk from the station, comfortable room (room 2), excellent and substantial breakfast and a very pleasant landlady in Inga. £70 a night was probably reasonable too by...

This bed and breakfast is cosy and comfortable. My room, although simple, was immaculately clean and had good quality bed linen, and the breakfast was tasty and freshly prepared by Inga. The location, 5 minutes from the station is also super-convenient. Inga, the owner, is an excellent hostess and makes you feel very welcome.

Visited Cambridge for one night to catch up with friends, stayed in the three bed room at the top of the house. Comfortable beds, the room was spotless, good amount of power points in the room for all three of us to charge our phones and good free WiFi included. Decent television and tea making facilities.

Your own key, warm, cosy, clean, breakfast in the room already in the evening, kettle to make your own tea, silent, and a few minutes from the station. Will go back again. Only seen one staff possibly a...
