Julie made our trip to Cambridge memorable. Her home was immaculate. The breakfasts were great with lots of choices and attention to detail. Benson House is an easy walk to the action of downtown Cambridge. We will return.

The location is perfect for anyone going to a conference at Fitzwilliam College, and the town center is a short walk away. Breakfast was as good as any five-star hotel. Bed was luxuriously comfortable and the shower had excellent water pressure. Will definitely stay there again and recommend to others.

We were visiting our daughter who is attending Cambridge University and she found this gem for us. It was not far from her accommodation or the gorgeous town center of Cambridge. The room was clean and comfortable. The host went above and beyond for us, making accommodation for my daughter to have breakfast with us and also making my birthday...

I was fortunate to stay here for 2 nights before my Cambridge University classes this summer.

Stylish and comfortable ... benson house is so close to some lovely indian curry restaurants and a short walk to the centre of town..Thanks julie.

This is a pleasant place, although the attic room I got is a bit of a challenge that won't fit everyone, i.e., you may want to ask a non-attic room which is more convenient (a bit larger, less chances of bumping your head, easier to work in). The breakfast is great and so is the service of the owner (?)....
