I stayed in the Regency for two nights on a business trip (attending a conference at Cambridge University). The guest house is in a great location, in the centre of town and less than 30min walk to the University's Sidgwick site where my event was. I stayed in a single room on the 2nd floor looking out to the back,... More

Very friendly and helpful staff from the moment I arrived. The wi-fi is excellent and overall the hotel has a clean and modern feel to it. I would recommend this guest house to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Cambridge.

Myself and my partner visited this hotel and stayed for a night. We found the staff were very friendly, helpful and forthcoming. The hotel has been recently refurbished; modern clean shower, very comfortable and clean bed, love the decor. The carpets seem newly fitted also, lovely deep pile carpet. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits available in the room. Nice... More

There is no 24 hour reception, so when you arrive you pick up a key from a table. And when you walk in, the place is a building site - flooring all ripped out, doors without numbers, plastic sheeting hanging up, stinks of paint and other chemicals. I had to call the number for the hotel just to find out... More

The location of the guest house is great for Cambridge. However, that is where the joys of this establishment stop. The bathroom situation was not made clear on Booking.com that it was a shared bathroom. The hot water in the room did not work. The television remote did not work. Breakfast is served in a one hour timeframe which does... More

This guest house should be really good but instead it looks as though it is under major refurbishment which has to be finished before anyone stays in this guest house. i regularly stay over in hotels for work purposes but this was one of the worst ive stayed in. there was no hot water when i got up for work...

This guest house has so much potential but really disappoints. The curtains were hanging off the rail in our room, the window wouldn't close, the carpet was dirty and the whole room poky and unappealing. The bathroom wasn't much better - we were only provided with one poor quality towel each and a container of liquid soap. Breakfast was OK... More

We found the apartment to not be fully cleaned, both the cooker and fridge were dirty. There was still crockery in the dishwasher from the previous stay. The rooms were dusty and the shower did not work. There were only a few basic items such as crockery and cooking utensils- not fully equipped as described I have since contacted the... More

I stayed at this guest house last Saturday night (18 October). From Parkside, where the long-distance coaches arrive, it is an easy walk across Parker's Piece - just take the footpath that crosses diagonally towards the cathedral in the distance, and when you are almost at the end of the path you will see a road on your right and...

Showed up for a week in Cambridge to find out my accommodations were a scam! I knocked on the door on the day of check in and Yousef was able to find me a room. After a red eye flight from the states, I was in no shape to make decisions but Yousef really was helpful. I have stayed before... More
