The Regent hotel is in a lovely building and although previous writers have said their rooms were small, we found our executive ones to be large and nicely decorated. However, the 4 members of staff we encountered were unhelpful, very cold, and a bit rude. We started off feeling annoyed by the staff, and left feeling annoyed by the staff.... More

Unfortunately, I'm disinclined to recommend this hotel. While scrupulously clean, the mattress was so firm that it was akin to sleeping on a solid concrete floor. Or in our case, not sleeping at all. Additionally, when reception staff took an imprint of our credit card, they went to considerable length to assure us that it was just for 'extras' or... More

My daughter and I spent 1 night here at the beginning of July. The room was small but more than adequate. Very clean and comfortable. Staff were helpful and obliging. The continental breakfast had plenty of choice and we had great coffee too, which is a huge bonus! Will definitely stay here again if I am back in Cambridge. Great... More

Stayed here for a five nights while in Cambridge for business. Location was excellent, 10-15 minute walk from the historic center, next to Parker's Piece, and surrounded by decent restaurants and pubs. It's also a reasonable walk from the train station. While the breakfast is continental as opposed a traditional English one, it is extensive including pastries, rolls, hams, cheeses,... More

Central location, clean and attractive rooms, very nice and thoughtful continental breakfast. Plenty of shops and restaurants close by and the park in the back is wonderful to access through the back door. Only 5 minutes into the crowds of tourists down Regent Street.

we stayed at Cambridge on the weekend the tour de france started. The hotel crew didn't have any idea about where to park our car without having any problems with blocked streets. We had to find another parking during our stay. The hotel didn't inform us about the fact, that there would be a big music festival in front of... More

Location is perfect. Although on a busy road, rooms are quiet. Decoration is modern, bed comfortable though not very large. Staff friendly. Yes rooms are quite small, but it was definitely one of the only good expériences I've had with hôtels in the UK!

Small cute hotel right on Regent in front of a green space (Parker's Piece). Clean and great service. Our room itself was small but the bathroom was larger and very nice. Very cute decor. The breakfast was great and lots of snacks to take with you for the day. Very nice lounging areas in the hotel as well.

Stayed at the Regent for one night on Friday and they were so helpful that I’m writing my first ever Trip Advisor review. Hotel is very convenient and central; room very comfortable, spotlessly clean with quirky décor. Lots of choice in the continental breakfast with stunning views in the dining room overlooking the park. We had to leave very early... More
