About Us

As a family-run guest house, we have the advantage of being able to offer a very personal service. We have been awarded numerous accolades over the years for our quality, and our level of hospitality. We will happily discuss your interests, and help where we can to make your stay in Cambridge a memorable one.

Situated in the heart of Cambridge, within walking distance of Cambridge's city centre, and the many of the world-reknown Cambridge University colleges.

Despite being located close to the centre of this historic city, there are plenty of open green-spaces nearby, such as Midsummer Common and Jesus Green, providing tranquil, scenic walkways alongside the river Cam. Our attractive, Victorian house has been carefully extended and renovated to provide cosy accommodation and a relaxing atmosphere.

There are excellent transport links right on our doorstep, with short commutes to both of Cambridge's train stations, business parks, and an abundance of local amenities. Extensive tourist information is available at our reception area.
