Stayed one Saturday night. Excellent central location with good car park. Housed in an elegant row, this hotel deserves a subtle update, our bedroom was slightly 'care worn' but adequate, rest of hotel much better. Breakfast was very good with wide range of buffet items. Reception staff attentive and very helpful. Price reflects location.

I had a meeting the next day and arrived really late. No problem there. The receptionist was cheerful and sorted out my room straight away. The room itself and the hotel was charming, but it might be in need of some refurbishment. It's clearly an old building. Apart from that, everything worked and the hygiene was good. The best thing...

Very difficult to find the star rating for this hotel, I guess 3 Star. A 3rd floor attic room spacious and warm, stair access only above the second floor. The room was large but with an incredibly creaky floor. No such thing as a quiet trip to the bathroom in the night! The shower was a disappointment, an over bath...

Things are certainly improving at the Royal Cambridge Hotel. I have stayed there a number of times over the last ten years on business and I am glad that it seems to be going in the right direction.

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...
