Read all the reviews since 2011 and after staying one night , the "Muffins" is just getting better. It's superb- clean , quaint , and everything you could want for in an overnight accommodation venue. Run"rings" around a motel room. Loved it . Keep it up , Bob and Chris.

Very comfortable self-contained rooms with all the details thought through and nothing missing! Some nice personal touches that you don't get in motels, and at a much better price. An easy walk into town for dinner too, and I was even offered to be picked up afterwards by the owners. Recommended.

Extremely welcoming and very well serviced. The breakfast choices are vast and fresh. The unit is very private and very clean and tidy. Easy to find and close to everything. Will always stay here when in Cambridge and highly recommend to everyone. Thanks so much for our lovely stay.

Very kind and helpful owners. Great welcome muffins. Great variety of available food. Clean and cozy. Quiet, away from main road. Peaceful neighborhood. Good quality bed. Outdoor spa looks tempting. Must come back in summer to try it. ;-)

We stayed here one night on our way north from Wellngton. Chris was very welcoming and had muffins all ready for us when we arrived! The accommodation is a sweet guest house in her garden, with a superbly well stocked ktchenette with sink, microwave, and toaster, and packed with breakfast foods - bread, granola, jams, tea, coffee, juice, milk, honey.......

My first BnB stay...the best place ever. Beats all the hotels I've stayed at hands down. Our host Chris was so lovely and welcoming. Greeted with freshly baked muffins, fresh fruit...absolutely spotless, cosy and well appointed little cottage. The attention to detail and all the little touches, Chris has thought of everything! As for the private outdoor spa...devine!! Beautiful gardens... More
