Less than 10 minutes walk to the shops and colleges this hotel was a great choice for us. All the staff were pleasant and helpful and our room was large and comfortable with a good sized bathroom. The breakfast room / bar / sitting area looks over Parkers Piece a large area of parkland. Because we were there for two nights over a Saturday afternoon and Sunday we were able to park our car across the street from the hotel but at other times you would have to pay for a nearby car park. I would highly recommend this hotel to others.

Excellent customer service. Every single member of staff was incredibly helpful, friendly and efficient. We were staying for freinds' wedding and had a couple of problems of our own making! Including booking very late when there were no more rooms for 2 nights and needing a replacement dress. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who organised deliveries for us and moved our things to a new room during the day. They made everything completely effortless for us!
Having seen 2 rooms can say both were of good size, well presented and clean. The location is brilliant. Close enough to the centre without being in the middle of Friday and Saturday night noise.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel on all counts.

This is a lovely hotel, very elegant. The location is really fantastic, right in the heart of Cambridge. It is not cheap, but by Cambridge prices, excellent value. This really deserves to be right at the top of your list for places to stay.

A good hotel about ten minutes walk from King's College Chapel etc in Cambridge.
As everyone has said, good location next to the park known as "Parker's Piece," with a view of the park from the breakfast room. The booking confirmation reminds you, as is right, that the breakfast (included in the room price) is only continental, but for a continental breakfast it is excellent. The staff make your hot drink to order, and also make you toast if you want. There's a wide array of breads, patisserie, jams, yogurts, fresh fruit, juices and more.

The (king bed) room was very comfortable--and ours had a wardrobe, unlike the room a previous reviewer mentions--and the bathroom was spacious. There was air conditioning--not usually a concern in England! But appreciated during the hot weather when we were there. The free wifi worked, the bed was comfortable, there was a kettle and the makings for tea or instant coffee.

Most important, the staff were efficient, friendly, and kind. Phone calls were well handled, confirmation letters had a personal touch, and everyone at reception and at breakfast, once we arrived, was kind and helpful.

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
