Accommodation Options at Cambridgeshire
The major accommodation options in Cambridgeshire are hotels, hostels, and bed and breakfast. There are several high-end boutique hotels on offer as well. As a general rule, accommodation costs is more expensive at city centres, especially in the heart of Cambridge, and becomes cheap at a distance from the city centre.
Hotels and hostels are aplenty in Cambridge. Cambridge has an excellent choice of hotels at all price-points. The range of hotels extends from international chains such as Premier Inn and Travelodge to exclusive boutique hotels, and from four and five star hotels to budget hotels. Cambridge city centre and other towns also offer several spa hotels, where travellers may relax and unwind after a hard day’s work.
Hostels offers an excellent alternative to hotels, especially for backpackers and budget travellers. Hostels also offer a chance to meet fellow travellers, and soak in the local culture of the region at a deeper level.
Hostels are generally cheap but is not owing to inferior quality of the space, but owing to shared facilities, including rooms and bathrooms. As such, travellers who do not mind sharing their space with others could consider hostels as an extremely cheap accommodation option.
Cambridgeshire also offers several bed and breakfast or b&b options. Bed and breakfasts off a budget alternative to hotels, and also an opportunity to live like the locals, and interact with them. Unlike hotels and even hostels, which are concentrated in the city or town centres, bed and breakfast options are spread throughout the county. The traveller may research as to the region they like to visit or explore, and identify a suitable b&b near the place.
Bed and breakfast offers much more varied choices compared to regular properties. However, not all b&b are equal. With hotels, once can expect a fair level of standards even without any independent research. The onus is on the traveller to undertake independent research to determine if the b&b option would meet their requirements in terms of the facilities on offer, location, and other considerations. Seeking out guests who have stayed in the b&b recently, and soliciting their feedback is the best way to get a real idea about the b&b.
