Staff really nice and friendly, extremely clean, 20 minutes by bus from the town center but great location near bus stop and supermarket. They would definitely recommend it!
Nothing at all.
We (2 brothers) were just a few minutes walk away from a reunion at the Perse School, so The Acacia was ideal, comfortable and good value. Great breakfast and friendly, enthusiastic and flexible staff, Thanks Amon
Very lovely and quiet accomodation for visiting Cambridge! Hope to come back soon!
location. a fair walk to a bus stop to town
Loose bathroom fittings: toilet, sink taps, Décor needs refreshing. Noisy this may be in part to the room location.
Had everything necessary for a short clean, comfortable stay. Not too far from the railway station (20 mins walk). My single room was ensuite even though advertised as shared bathroom
Staff were OK and polite but a bit matter-of-fact rather than friendly. eg I had to seek them out to check out and return my key as I dont think anyone would have noticed ... Not cheap for a small single room but nothing in Cambridge is cheap it seems.
Friendly owner, bed not too bad, breakfast pretty good.
Room needed updating. Broken lampshade, dodgy side lamp, new door to room/s needed. Too much at £75 a room but maybe £55.
Clean, comfortable and reasonable. Hosts are excellent and provide a hearty breakfast.
A lovely guest house with friendly staff and very clean rooms. It felt like home. Worth every penny!
Very helpful with check in (I was delayed and we arranged everything by text message from the train). Room sparse but comfortable. Comfy bed. Great breakfast and really helpful with my luggage.
Nothing - exactly as advertised.
Clean bed & towels breakfast very good.
Had to put The kettle on the floor to boil the water . It would be helpful to have a brighter bedside lamp for reading.
very friendly welocme and couldn't have been more helpful
I liked the position.. Near to city but nothanks in the middle.. A simple bus journey away and with good parking.. A good place to stay and a nice brekkie.nothing
Good location, very quiet. Friendly service.
The information book in the room could be better. Specifically the info concerning public transport (fares, day, week cards). The information was there, but not so understandable if You are not familiar with local transport principles.
Breakfast is 5£ was very good
Internet Speed was very low Water pressure was very low in sink
We enjoyed our stay at the Guest house as it was perfectly located near to the centre. The beds were comfortable with good cleanliness. No noise from outside of the road.
The breakfast was average but value for money. The shower was extremely cold. It could do with some touch ups and a bit of love but otherwise very good value for money.
The Location is good for our purpose
Down Stairs Bedroom Guests were heavily disturbed by other guest at 12.30 am who did not have their keys with them Upstairs Bedroom did not have Shower Soap or gel
Comfortable beds, clean, tidy, right location to the city. Really enjoyed our short stay.
Would have liked more t-bags and coffee, although I'm sure if we had asked it wouldn't have been too much trouble. Perhaps a couple of packs of biscuits to go with the hot drinks.
efficiently run with friendly staff
Good value for money for UK standards. Room was very clean, beds very comfortable and customer service excellent. Transportation links to the train station and city centre are good.
Bathroom in Room 9 could do with some improvement. There was very little water coming out of the tap and shower head and the silicone sealant in the shower needs to be replaced.
Stayed here to get to Duxford airshow and location was perfect for us. The concierge was slightly 'bumbling' but very funny with it and was apparently covering for her nephew for the weekend. We thought the breakfast was adequate, nothing special (our lorry driver brother who was travelling with us, thought it deserved 4/10).
Our room looked as if it was due to be redecorated i.e the floor tiling in the bathroom was cracked and the floor sills were shabby. However, next door, where our brother stayed, the tiling was apparently brand new so perhaps our bathroom is next on the list to be done!
Very friendly host!
