“Clean silent and friendly”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Family owned hotel with very friendly staff, clean rooms and a very beautiful view from the breakfast room into the park. Highly recommended. It's a perfect place to stay. On top comes the location of the hotel next to the park and close to city center.

Room Tip: Park view is best and very calm.

We enjoyed staying at the Regent. The staff were very friendly and helpful - they let us check-in early after a long flight from the States and even made us a to-go breakfast bag when we had to leave early at the end of our stay to catch a train. The location is the best part - quick 12 minute or so walk to the train station, a 5 minute walk across Parker's Piece if you come via National Express bus from Heathrow. Also a 5 minute walk to the center of Cambridge.

The Regent was in a safe area. The room was clean and had a nice, large window overlooking the park. Other reviewers have said that it gets loud in the park at night - we stayed on a Friday and Saturday night and the noise did not bother us. We heard nothing. We kept the window closed because it was really cold outside, so that may be the trick.

We stayed in one of the "small rooms" which was indeed small (think NYC sizes). It was fine for a couple staying two nights. I would probably not stay more than two nights in the "small rooms." However, I will say that although small, the rooms were very well organized (no wasted space!). There was also plenty of shelving in the bathroom for my make-up and other girly products. The shower/tub had great water pressure and was spacious.

We would stay here again. The Regent was the best priced hotel for the location. I would recommend.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the park had a lovely view!

Friendly, helpful staff. Terrific location. Quiet.
The only drawback was the lack of a wardrobe or closet in the room, which was surprising as there was ample space.
Taxi ride to the train station is only 5 pounds.
5 minute walk from the centre of town

We only stayed one night, but we were pleased we booked it, based on the advice of previous reviews. We stayed in one of the larger top floor rooms, overlooking the park. The terrace was tiny (too small for two of us to sit and have a cup of tea around the table), but provided nice views over the park. The bedroom and bathroom were clean and appropriately equipped. The public rooms were pleasant and spacious, and the staff friendly. Although superbly located in the city centre, parking at the rear of the hotel (it was Sunday) was impossible, and we had to park at the reasonably pricey multi-storey nearby. As a hotel to use as a base in the city, I'd certainly recommend it.

Firstly let me begin by saying this hotel was lovely, we stayed in one of the 2 top floor rooms, which were really spacious and had beautiful views over the park. The hotel is small and cosy and within walking distance to most of inner Cambridge. We even walked to the train station. Our room had a lovely balcony an everything was clean an modern. When booking, the website does say that there is only a continental breakfast. I have no problem with a continental breakfast BUT this is where this hotel falls short. Even with continental breakfasts, you can serve great meusli, fresh croissants and pastries and a good selection of cheeses and cold meats. Unfortunately they only serve things out of packages and tins. All cereals are packaged versions, no great muesli. awful pastries. I have stayed in quite a few establishments in Cambridge prior to The Regent and all have served freshly baked croissants and pastries in the morning, so this is a poor excuse.Even the fruit is not freshly cut , its out of a tin. I really think if they make a bit more effort with their breakfast this would be the ideal place to stay. I would love to go back, but I like a fresh breakfast before I start my day, so hopefully they will address this easily fixable problem and we will certainly be back again

The double room rate was the same as the single so I booked the double and was very pleased with the space. The staff was incredibly helpful in helping me find a place to do my laundry. The continental breakfast was hardy. The one thing that could have been improved was a larger tv in the room.

We chose this hotel based on tripadvisor® reviews and its location being within walking distance from the National Express stop, all the attractions and some great restaurants/cafe. We were indeed very pleased with this choice.

The hotel and the room gave us a good feeling as they are not dated. The room and bathroom was nice and clean. The complimentary continental breakfast was good with healthy choices of low fat milk, wholemeal bread/bun and fruit selection, and, good quality jams/honey. Though we had a room facing the Regent Street (we would have preferred the room facing the Parker's Piece - the green field), we found it not noisy at night for sleep. The staff were generally helpful and friendly.

We would consider this hotel as our top choice if we visit Cambridge again.
