Lovely property set in rural area just off motorway and stones throw from park and ride service into Cambridge. No meals apart from continental breakfast which we didn’t try. Village pub a short drive away. Still charge you £2 a night to park, no option but to use there car park in middle of a paddock.

Quite a small room. Only one desk- type chair to sit on apart from bed. Continental Breakfast was good (£10 per head) apart from the plunger coffee that was too strong to drink. We were very surprised we had to pay £2 parking per day. The main house and grounds are beautiful. Well located, close to Park and ride (half mile).

Overview of Rectory Farm

Pros: Convenient location.
Cons: Many aspects of the stay could be improved with increased awareness of differing customer needs. A friendly attitude would go far.
Location: Cambridge is a great place to visit. Many historical aspects and items to see and visit..
Room was a bit small but clean. Bed was very uncomfortable. Greeting by staff after a 13 hour flight and a drive from Heathrow with a 6 am arrival was very poor. Gentleman was to the point of being rude and knowledge of local area facilities to fill in time was poor.
