My goodness, the rooms are much nicer than they were in my day.
And I did wonder: what would a tourist pay for a room in the heart of Cambridge, facing out across a narrow lane at Queens' College, with King's College also visible? I suspect it would be a lot more than the £27 per night B&B (and that being a hot breakfast) that I paid per single room.
(Conceded - the views are not of the pretty aspects of either college. But for location, unbeatable.)
