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... More

Very tidy and spacious bedroom. Clean ensuite bathroom. English breakfast cooked just to my taste. Only stayed 1 night but would visit again. Highly recommended for the peaceful night sleep and excellent breakfast served by charming and friendly hostess.

Lovely clean room & big bed. Host missing at check in with teenage boy showing us to our room. Pre-warned host of dietary requirements weeks ago, but food not bought in. Banging and drilling on morning.

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... More

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... More

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... More

The 'double room en suite' was comfortable. The bed a comfortable height for 2 OAP's to get in and out of! The bathroom was rather cramped. No separate shower, and it was impossible for my wife to climb in and out of the bath. The WC seat was loose. Shampoo, shower gel & towels were provided. The freeview TV worked... More
