This is a room let out in Renee and David's house, but extremely comfortable and spacious, also en suite. We was greeted by Renee, who makes you feel extremely comfortable, with a cup of coffee, and lots of pamphlets about things to see and do in Cambridge. The bed was soooo comfortable, it was a shame we had to get...

Renee and David couldn't have been better hosts. Plenty of information but gave us our space too. The room was delightful - as was the food. Homemade jams, bread and biscuits all added to the over all experience. A lovely B & B and very good value. We left our car parked at the B & B and walked into...

Thank you Val and Tony, so glad that you enjoyed your stay here. It was a pleasure to meet you. We hope that you'll come back and see us again soon - maybe to take in a Willows or a Hannah Sanders and Ben Savage concert!

Lovely and very helpful hosts. The walk along the river towards the town center was perfect. We spent the whole day sightseeing and took a cab back to the B&B for £8. Very convenient. Thank you David for baking the bread for breakfast. It was delicious! Johan & Stephen

So glad that you enjoyed yourselves - it's a lovely walk into town and, at £8 for the two of you, the taxi is little more expensive than the 'bus fare! After walking round the city all day your feet deserve the rest!

We were a little disappointed with our stay here for the following reasons: The room: We've stayed at numerous B&Bs and typically the room is a lot more private. We felt like we were staying very close to the owners section of the house and hence never really felt comfortable. We always whispered when we were in the room and...

We had a lovely stay with Renee and David at their B&B. They were friendly and professional. The B&B itself was fine, well equipped, and suited us perfectly. Location was about 30 minute stroll to central Cambridge, and it was a nice walk along the river. Renee cooked us a fab breakfast too, all locally sourced and homemade, it was...

This is why a guesthouse should beat a hotel. Greeted by a wonderful host. Real coffee and home made cake on arrival. What a wonderful start to know you are going to have a great stay. Then there's the view of the river and the rowing boats going by. The room is great, tv and wi fi work well. The...

My partner and I have stayed all over the world for business and leisure, and found the owners at TwentySix the most attentive people to customer requirements that we have ever met. We were greeted with tea, and advice on what to see and a vast knowledge of the local area. Excellent recommendations for cafes, pubs and places to visit....

This place is gorgeous and you are made to feel incredibly welcome. The room is immaculate, bathroom brand new, and dining area lovely with a view of the river and if you're lucky rowers racing.

My partner and I stayed at the Twenty Six Guesthouse for one night mid-week at the beginning of March 2014. The owners, David and Renee were so welcoming and wonderful. The room was really clean and towels were provided, as well as toiletries. There is only one room for guests in the house so we had the sitting room to...

My parents came over to visit me and stayed at Twentysix Guesthouse. They loved the cozy atmosphere and friendliness of Renee and David. The room is spacious, light and contemporary. A nice bonus was an en-suite with a shower, as not many B&B's offer it these days. Upon arrival there was a nice pot of tea and biscuits - which...
