    Just a 10-minute riverside walk from the heart of Cambridge's city centre, this charming guest house offers free WiFi, free parking subject to availability and comfortable accommodation at great-value rates. Lantern House has a convenient location, just a few hundred metres from the River Cam and about a kilometer (1 miles) from the city centre. The Grafton Shopping Centre is just a 10-minute walk away. The hotel offers a range of accommodation. En suite bathrooms and rooms with shared bathrooms are both available. All rooms have TVs and there is a common room, with a microwave, and seating with a TV.
