The property was absolutely in mess and dirt. The stuff of previous guests was left in the shared toilets and bathroom. There was no breakfast as the landlord said when he gave the keys to me. There was a TV in the reception room which its noise was very destructive at least at the room I stayed in. It was meant to be a no-smoking house, but the smell of cigarettes and weed was everywhere.
I liked the high quality of the wi-fi, and the provided toaster and microwave were helpful in preparing simple meals.
I would have liked a small desk in my room, and the soundproofing needs improving as you can hear whole conversations/televisions from other rooms in the room I stayed in.
The location great but this is more a boarding house for workers students and not a tourist b n b
No kettle with tea bags shared toilet meant going through lounge late at night it isn't what is advertised
I've been traveling Europe off and on for 4 years, Sean is the best, most interesting, and personable manager met. Not only is Sean extremely helpful, he is honest and accurate. I'd hire him immediately. Cleaning lady was extremely nice and efficient too. Snacks, nice shower, etc., The Old Spring and The Viking were excellent and close by too. Dr. SSS
A store and bus stop were very close by, but we preferred to walk to city center each day which gets to be tiring after six days without a bike. But that total 3m trek back and forth was our decision.
acceptable if you are on a tight budget
Shower was actually hot in the morning, water pressure was good Cozy enough, radiators were on long enough to get the room to a comfortable temperature in the evening. Easy walk to downtown Cambridge, walkable to Cambridge science park.
No front desk, nowhere to leave luggage. Had to call to find out how to check in to an un-staffed accommodation. Room so narrow I could hold my arms out and almost touch the left and right walls at the same time. Dingy tablecloth over desk, felt like I needed to wash my hands after touching it. Wooden chair, no sofa or armchair (which wouldn't fit into such a tiny space anyway). TV about the size of a laptop.
Just a 10-minute riverside walk from the heart of Cambridge's city centre, this charming guest house offers free WiFi, free parking subject to availability and comfortable accommodation at great-value rates. Lantern House has a convenient location, just a few hundred metres from the River Cam and about a mile (1.6 km) from the city centre. The Grafton Shopping Centre is just a 10-minute walk away. The hotel offers a range of accommodation. En suite bathrooms and rooms with shared bathrooms are both available. All rooms have TVs and there is a common room, with a microwave, and seating with a TV. Tea/coffee making facilities are available on request. While the Lantern does not serve any meals including breakfast, a range of restaurants are found half a kilometre away. Many of Cambridge's famous colleges are just a short walk away and the heart of the city can be easily reached on foot, by crossing one of the beautiful greens. Regular buses are available nearby for those who prefer not to walk.
