My wife and I stayed for one night while visiting Cambridge. We were allocated room 7 in the annex building to the rear of the main house. We arrived early by arrangement with the owner, parked and were given a very warm welcome by one of the team who was still busy cleaning the rooms. She made us a large...

Just got back from a great stay at Home from home. We were in the outhouse, at the back of the property, and found it very comfortable and quiet in the evening. We had a large double room, which was immacuately clean. Breakfast was nothing short of fantastic with a great choice. I had full English while my patner had...

Booked a treble room which turned out to be a double room, kitchenette and bed sitting room, in the basement of the house which seemed to be completely converted to accomodation, not the family home their name leads you to think. The rooms were dreary, handles missing from furniture, electric shaving point didn't work and the shower head wouldn't stay...

I stayed here several weeks back and it truely was terrible. The B&B is located on a fairly busy road, and so traffic noice kept us awake at night (not to mention the uncomfortable beds). I am not sure if there is a homeless shelter close-by but there were lots of drunken homeless people close by and also causing noise...

We have not used this B&B before and found it on the web. We arrived and met the owner who is very hospital and has run this B&B for 10 years. We stayed in what turned out to be a small self catering apartment, for no extra charge, and found it very comfortable. Lovely towels and bath sundries and it...

Finding good value in Cambridge is not easy but Home from Home is a very good option to a hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable, management and staff helpful and friendly. Home from Home is close enough to walk into the city.

This was our first stay at the home from home b & b, and to be fair the name says it all. It is very welcoming, the staff were pleasant and helpful. Our room was very clean, had a spotless ensuite and the power shower was better than mine at home! Although the cubicle was a bit small... We stayed...

Our stay in Home from Home was our first in an English B&B and it was everything we'd hoped for. The room was of average size but with much storage space, so there was enough room to walk around. The room was clean and tidied every day. Our room was located in the bungalow at the back of the premises,...

Our experiences of B&Bs in England after 5 weeks had been mostly great. This B&B was not up to the standard of others of the same standard that we had stayed at. Our room was in a seperate building down the back of the property that also had the dining room in it. Our room was comfortable and clean but...
