Only eighty kilometres north of London, Cambridge is a university town in East Anglia, England. The area has a rich history dating back before the Roman Era, but today it remains an active urban centre with multiple sports and performance arts events occurring any season and night of the week. Those planning to stay in cheap Cambridge accommodation can find some great prices.
The town has many hotels, small inns, bed and breakfasts, and some holiday cottages. The boutique hotels and the bed and breakfasts in the area offer the most selection at prices $100 AUD or less per night. Additionally, the least expensive of all are the available hostels at $30 to $70 nightly, but provide only basics.
Here are three examples of Cambridge low-cost accommodation:
A charming, historic building on Lensfield Road near Fitzwilliam Museum, this hotel has small rooms but the helpful staff is friendly, and the building spotless. Breakfasts are marvellous serving traditional coffee cake, but also offering some variety items like spring rolls, cold cuts, and cheesecake.
A little out of town with beautiful well-maintained landscaped gardens and grounds, rooms are small but clean and quiet, and they have comfortable beds. A good breakfast is eaten around a large, friendly table.
On Chesterton Road, this home-style inn has wonderful hosts, spacious and relaxing rooms, and an easy walk into the heart of town. The facilities are spotless, but some bathrooms only have showers. The generous English breakfast is delicious.
