Great location, nice lounges to sit and relax in. Had a problem with room and were swiftly relocated to another. Staff very helpful. Ate in restaurant both nights, food excellent and breakfasts very good with plenty of choice. So close to Fitzwilliam museum we were able to pop in and out a couple of times. Very easy to walk around...

A fantastic Christmas ina wonderful hotel, staffed by friendly and helpful people that showed they cared and wanted us to enjoy Christmas. They went the extra step to ensure that the whole weekend was memorable and enjoyable. Will certainly recommend the hotel to any friends or family visiting Cambridge.

Stayed here as a couple in an upgraded room which was large and very clean. This is a 3* hotel and other reviewers mention various issues, but we found the package we paid for, which included breakfast and £20 each towards an evening meal, very good value. The bed was comfortable and there was more than enough space. Yes the...

I just felt compelled to write a comment re my NYE break, what was a splendid couple of days, and everybody we spoke with thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We stayed on the 3rd floor and despite the lift only servicing to floor 2, it afforded my ageing legs some exercise.The room was spacious, warm and comfortable. Having stayed here before, early...

Booked a few days before and was so glad we did. Easy to find and car park was empty when we got there. We were lucky enough to be able to check in right away which was few hours early. We were in room 215, small quaint little room, nice and clean. Centre of Cambridge is only 10 minutes walk...

We spend new year here on a bridge holiday. Previous reviews were quite negative but we found the hotel fine. A bit 'faded glory' but nothing wrong with that. Very central- 5 mins from Fitzwilliam museum. The hotel was extremely good value for money and they did a lovely new year celebration.

We stayed here in 2015 for New Year Gala Dinner, and loved it - so we decided to come back and stay two nights in 2016 again with the Gala Dinner. Well, I wish we hadn't bothered. The experience was so disappointing, it completely ruined our new year. Firstly, the room we were given was in the attic - Room...

Dear Michelle 2660 I had responded to your comment card and indeed emailed you twice regarding your complaint, it is a shame you felt the need to hide behind the keyboard rather than allow me the opportunity to investigate and respond to the issues for you. The lift does not go to the third floor but there are only twelve...

Last month my boyfriend and I enjoyed a 2-night stay at the Royal Cambridge Hotel. We found this hotel to be more than adequate for a young couple, with welcoming staff, spacious rooms, excellent food and most importantly a reasonable price tag! The generously-sized car park is a great asset for visitors and with the hotel just a short walk...

Very friendly.
