Perfect place
A fantastic place to stay, clean, comfortable, warm welcome and some really lovely touches. I had a lovely stay, shame it was only one night

Everything about the hotel was first class. Clean, food excellent, everything you would need catered for. Felt like I was at home. I was researching my family history, in both Littleport and Cambridge and originally picked the hotel as a base in Littleport. But, with the location of the railway station within walking distance. Perfect location, whether by car or train. I will definitely be looking to stay there again. I would thoroughly recommend it, whether it was for a businessman or tourist.

Best B & B ever
To be honest we have not stayed in that many B & B's but this was definitely the best one we have ever stayed in. When I phoned to say we were running late and that we would not arrive until after 8pm the host took this in her stride and was at the door to welcome us. We found the host Edna welcoming but not intrusive. The full breakfast was a hearty meal that kept me full until the evening. My wife however enjoyed trying out the various other breakfast options. The room was spacious and having a fridge full of complementary water(and chocolate!)certainly helped in the hot weather.

The gold standard for B&Bs
I stayed at The Gate House for one night on business and consider this place to be the gold standard that all other B&Bs and guesthouses should aspire to. The place was smart and spotless, with comfortable rooms finished to a high standard. When I arrived I was offered a pot of tea, which Edna (the owner) brought up to my room on a tray. A really nice touch! The room had a desk for me to work at on my laptop, with separate lighting, and plenty of power sockets. There were two ethernet ports which I didn't need because the wi-fi was so good. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the bathroom was as good as you'll find in many four star hotels. The breakfast selection was extensive, with any choice or combination for a cooked breakfast. There were three (yes, three!) different types of muesli, plus granola, cereal, fresh fruit, Greek yoghurt, fruit juice, tea, coffee, bread and toast. What a selection! I would go out of my way to stay here again, and would recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in the local area.
