I had a wonderful stay in Glo's house for two nights. Glo's place has a very authentic feel about it with lots of curious and unique collections of things, photos and mottos everywhere. Glo is very caring and interesting lady with very cosmopolitan outlook and personal story. You are guaranteed top have a memorable stay!

Glo is the most lovely host in the world! She loves art and music and always has good taste. She is open-minded and considerate. We shared our experience with each other. Although it was not a long talk but really enjoyable. I will always remember the time that I spent at her place in Cambridge.

I had a wonderful stay, and I highly recommend this accommodation for others who are in situations similar to mine. I was after somewhere secure and comfortable while I undertook research at Cambridge University for a few days. CU is about 20 minutes away by foot, and the place is just off the road that leads down to the University library. It is quiet, clean, and extremely comfortable. Glo is lovely and strikes the right balance between making sure you're settled and leaving you in peace. If the opportunity arises to stay again, I definitely will.

Very convenient location, lovely house. Good unfussed hospitality. Glo has more than one room, I got the really tiny one! Small but perfectly formed, and absolutely fine for my purposes, but ask if in doubt. I thoroughly recommend this destination. Glo is lovely
