    My stay at Lantern was very pleasant. I am quite old and recently had keyhole surgery, so i appreciated they did all they could for me and it was useful to have all bags carried for me, even to the car when leaving. Service was excellent, staff very kind. I must also say it made me laugh to see some of the comments here. In my experience the staff are very kind and never rude, even when i cancelled a late booking due to health and they refunded ALL the money. Room was very clean, if a bit modest.

    Close to city center

    in the room we experienced a pungent smell (even with the bedroom window full open) In the bathrooms there was large areas of black mould on the walls

    The Owners ..very friendly and accommodating helpful..willing to please..quiet food is delicious

    Room felt cold and damp and it was far distance for walking if backpacking..If I was to arrive early a baggage charge would be in place where hotels I stayed never charged . If a taxi was to be called they charged and again other hotels did not charge..glad I had my phone.

    Leaving

    The bathroom was shoddy, there was no bin, the room was not cleaned during my two day stay and the shower was fine if you happened to be no taller than a six year old child. I'm 52.

    Really good service, done with a smile, both owners worked really hard to give us all we asked for, carried all bags for us and called Taxi. Check-in easy. Location excellent for us, shopping and sightseeing very close walking. Breakfast very tasty and quick service, even had special vegetarian.

    A comfortable B & B located about a mile out of the main city, Cambridge. Suitably accessed by regular bus service. Used the B&B as an overnight stay whilst looking at the University Open Days for my son.

    Superb

    Staff, very friendly providing tips for the local transport and shopping. Located in walking distance to city center and close to public transport. The breakfast was delicious. Free Wi-Fi, coffee and tee during the day. Hairdryer was very helpful. Tidy room, I had very pleasant stay and recommend this house for business trip or tourism.

    What was special was the staff- they were very kind, really polite and offered me early breakfast and free map, allowed me to check-in early and leave luggage, answered all my questions and even called me a Taxi for free! Generally very helpful and good, breakfast very generous and good too. Breakfast menu was much better than most normal BnBs.

    Price seems high but was really reasonable for this location in Cambridge.

    The owner seems to work hard to fulfill the guests expectations. Was very helpful and considerate.

    Unfortunately they wanna close the breakfast service by end of July. They serve(d) Continental and English ... and having a breakfast service is at least for us a reason why we book an accommodation.
