Heather was a great host: she was willing to meet me early to fit in with my travel plans and then gave a thorough orientation to the place and the location. The flat was clean and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen (which was a priority for me). The unit is perfectly located in a quiet block, with no noise from neighbours. I particularly enjoyed watching the rowing crews in the river and local dogs cavorting on the common as I ate my breakfast porridge each morning. Everything is within walking distance, including the Grafton shopping centre a couple of minutes away, and some decent pubs and restaurants.
We stayed two nights. The flat is on the first floor (steps up) and has a view across MIdsummer Common to the river Cam. It is close to the Grafton shopping centre and about a 10-15 minute walk from the town centre. We were able to park in a space within Auckland Court itself. In the winter season, prices compared favourably with hotel rooms. The single bedroom flat is clean, warm and well equipped. The host is helpful and provides good information about the locality. We would certainly consider renting this again in future.
I was there 2 nights, the place is clean and well equipped. Overlooking the river and a bridge in Midsummer common the apartment is quiet with a nice view from one of the window. The host Heather is very kind and helpful with good information to offer about the area.
Walking to town centre (St. Andrews street) takes around 10 minutes, the walk goes through two parks Midsummer common and Christ’s pieces so it’s actually very enjoyable and easy.
Walking to the train station might be a bit far if you are carrying luggage, about 1 1/2 mile.
I will definitely consider this place if I need to visit Cambridge again.
The apartment is well located - a very pleasant walk along the river into Cambridge. It is very clean, comfortable and well equipped for a short or longer term stay.
A comfortable flat within easy walking distance of the city centre. The availabilty of a parking space meant no worries about what to do with the car
