"perfect location"
it's lucky I'm only 1,65 - the bed fitted perfectly :-) Room was qaint and clean, location is perfect, bathroom facilities are new and were clean. All in all perfectly fine, and relatively cheap (I got a deal, approx £50).

"ロケーションが良いホテル!"
一泊二日の一人リラックス休暇の際にこちらのホテルを利用しました。 駅やセンターに近く、清潔なホテルでした。トイレやバスルーム(シャワー)はシェア(2カ所)なので早めに使用し、就寝しました。朝トイレに行ったらシャワー室の下に水が溜まっていたので早めの利用をオススメします。 ホテルの隣がパブなので、夜は話声で少しうるさかったです。 部屋はキレイで、洗面所が付いているので顔や手は部屋で洗えます。タオルやドライヤーも部屋にありました。 朝食はコーヒー、紅茶、パン、フルーツを他の部屋のお客さんと相席で一緒に座って食べる感じです。かなり簡易朝食ですが、クロワッサンが美味しかったです。

"Elendigt hotel, god beliggenhed"
Absolut uacceptabelt til de pris. Blev annonceret som 4 stjerner. Jeg vil mene at 2 stjerner vil være at presse den. Intet plads i rummene, ikke engang en stol var der plads til. Vinduerne virkede ikke, internettet virkede ikke og der var koldt vand i badet flere dage. Vil aldrig booke der igen.

"立地が最高"
コーチを利用する人には、立地と値段から見て最高。トイレとシャワーが共同だが、収容人数が多くないので不便はなく、しかも清潔。朝食はコンティネンタルだが果物やヨーグルトなどもあり、一人一人サビースしてくれて満足。

"Ingen värme"
Kallt i rummet, kalldrag från förnstret ner över huvudänden av sängen och inget varmvatten i handfaten. Iskallt i frukostrummet. Tack och lov fanns en elektrisk uppvärmning av vattnet i duschen. Frukosten var bra! TV'n funkade uselt.

"Bra läge, lite opersonligt"
Bra läge, små rum men helt ok sängar. Kändes lite opersonligt då den enda vi träffade på två dagar var en östeuropeisk tjej som ställde fram frukost. Ingen mysig B&B känsla här inte..

"確かにホテルでなくてゲストハウスと書いてあった"
一言で書けば、ロンドンで泊まったホテルより高いのにこんなもんかよー、というところ。 予約したらば宿泊施設からメールが送られてきて、そこにドアを開けるためのキー(いわば暗証番号)が書いてあります。開けると誰もおらず、カウンターにその日の宿泊リストと鍵が置いてあります。で、鍵を受け取って自分の部屋へ。 シャワーとトイレは数部屋で共用。洗面台はあるので、歯を磨く/顔を洗うはできます。8部屋しかなく、意外と他の宿泊者とかちあわないのですが、ただ、気をつかうのでやはり自分の部屋についているとよいなぁ。 部屋は最上階でしたが、wi-fi はつながりました(少しつながらないときがある)。キーは宿泊リストの隣に書いてあります。 食事は、コンチネンタル。ハムとチーズとクロワッサン、フルーツ、シリアルはあります。味はまともです。 知人もここに泊まったらしいですが、夏はエアコンが効かずに難儀した、と言っていました。 泊まるだけ、と割り切るならいいんじゃないんでしょうか。しかしこの値段じゃなぁ。。。 このホテルを他の人にすすめますか、と言われても、他にいいところあるんだろうか。要検討です。

"Very basic facilities in central Cambridge"
The only reason I'm giving it 3 stars is because of decent breakfast, otherwise I'd give it 2. Bathroom is shared, the room is cold. The location is central, so if you don't mind inconveniences I mentioned it might suit you.

"wonderful: Cozy,Central, non luxurious"
We had a wonderful stay. The room, with a bathroom ensuite, was almost exactly what we wished for: a rather cozy, personal, than sterile, luxorious surrounding for our weekend. The guesthouse is located central in Cambirdge. We would love to come back.

"Nice hotel with good location"
I got room 9 with silent courtyard on the ground floor. It was perfect for me - comfortable double bed, bathroom and a TV on the wall. The breakfast was good and served in a renovated room downstairs. Nice and friendly breakfast staff. Location is good with a ten-minute walk to King's Parade and King's College. The railway station about the same distance. I liked the hotel and return safely there next time.

"Shared bathroom & no receptionist during evenings"
The description on the web site did not clarify that you have to share bathroom with other guests. There is nobody in the reception during evenings/nights/early mornings, which was a problem as something in my room was broken and needed repair. This is actually not a hotel and should not even be listed on hotels.com in my opinion. The positive thing about it is that the location is central.

"Cozy hotel"
07/28/15 FerGMV Mexico City, Mexico
Vary nice hotel by the park. Recently remodeled, no reception or service its like staying at a house. Breakfast is included, simple but good, the bread is delicious. The only problem was that the shower is very hot and you cant control it. Besides that everything was great

"Check which room you're in..."
06/19/15 PaulH2211 London, United Kingdom
Stayed here on the 17th June 2015 for business. Booked a single room, as the reviews were ok, and the website looked very professional. Unfortunately I didn't check the small print, so when I arrived, I saw that the single room I had didn't have a bathroom. So no bath/shower/toilet. I was told that they couldn't move me as they were full. Going back to the room, I also realised a few other things were missing, that you expect for a single room where you are paying £100.00 a night for. Firstly there was no wardrobe, just a hook. Ok, I can live without a wardrobe. Then realised there were no curtains... blinds on one window, but nothing on the large double glass doors that opened out over a pub garden. So I had to go and borrow a sheet and try and tape it to the doors. Next there was no hot water in the sink (yes I had a sink). So off I go out for the evening. I come back to a stifling hot room, no air conditioning or fan. Borrowed a small fan that was in their shed, and tried to cool down with the door open (to the pub garden). Around 12.30am it was finally quiet, and I got about 5 hours sleep before the sun came streaming through the door (the sheet curtain hadn't stayed up) and woke me up. I then had to queue for the bathroom, and shave with no hot water in the shared bathroom. The continental breakfast they set out was nice, but in no way made up for the prison cell that cost me £100.00, a bad nights sleep, and a long tiring day. Please check what room you are put in here. There may be bigger, nicer rooms, but I didn't see them. They may even be low enough to reach their wireless router in the basement. The fourth floor loft conversion was definitely too high for it. All in all a bad experience, and I will not be staying here again, or recommending it to anyone.

"Really lovely little guest house"
06/05/15 Delia L
We stayed here in the beginning of June and were won over by the location and beautiful decoration. It's in a super place and well-priced. The room we stayed in was gorgeous, very smartly done up and had a very comfortable bed. Unfortunately it was almost too enticing as we ended up waking up too late to make breakfast as we had an early train to catch! Could smell delicious croissants but didn't get to try. Would certainly come back or recommend.

"Underwhelming stay"
05/12/15 Lesley C Mountain View, California
This guest house is a fairly simple, unfussy property in a good location. It is undergoing renovations so don't be surprised if you have to step over workmen's tools and other paraphernalia when entering for the first time. We were glad to be able to check in early to get ready for a wedding. However, our room directly faced the street outside and the wooden blinds did not close properly and were very dirty and dusty. There is an entry code for the front door, because there is not a 24-hour reception. We received the entry code when we booked the room online, but then the code had obviously changed prior to our arrival. This was never communicated to us, and so it was a bit of a hassle trying to get in to the property the first time. One of the workmen eventually let us in. Beware if traveling with large bags - there is no lift and the staircases are extremely small and narrow. Overall, a suitable place to stay for a short visit but in need of a little more friendliness.

"Cancellation handled really well"

Booked for a night but fell ill so had to unfortunately cancel last minute. Customer service was great as they happily sold my room on and they didn't have to. Would have been charged full room rate at other places.

"great makeover!"
04/06/15 dawlee Melbourne, Australia
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, which was very comfortable, especially as it had just been renovated. The guest house is next to a pub at the back, which wasn't noisey (but I always travel with earplugs these days just in case...) and I slept well. It would have been good to have a proper curtain in the room rather than just wooden blinds which did let some light in and a curtain would have made the room cosier as well. Breakfast was good, a more 'continental' selection of food but plenty of it. Staff were very friendly and set up an ironing board for me on request. They are almost at the end of the guest house's much-needed renovations and so far a good job has been done.

"Simple yet modern and homely with great potential. "
03/21/15 adassalou Needham Market, United Kingdom
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 modern 19“ tv. Bedside tables, charger ports. Enough storage space for clothes and luggage etc. Breakfast was included. Not your typical English breakfast more continental freshly baked croissants, cereal, eggs, fresh juice, tea, coffee and toast. Simple yet effective and I was satisfied with what was on offer. There isn't a 24 hour reception, however clear instructions were given to us on how to access our room. And where to park our car which was directly on the road the hotel is located on. We were literally 2 mins walk away from a multitude of restaurants, 5 mins from the mall and shopping. 10 mins away from the riverside. Absolutely ideal location. As I have said this hotel has great potential, just needs finishing touches to complete its homely vibe. I was content with the price we paid for our room. We will be returning again very soon. Massive thank you to the staff. Charlotte in particular. I recommend a stay here.

"It's a building site"
03/09/15 Ann K London, United Kingdom
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 where my room was as half the doors didn't have numbers. Struggled to get in and out of the room over the course of my stay as the key didn't fit properly in the lock. The front door appears to be nailed open, I could not close it at night, leaving only a thin, mostly glass door as the barrier to outside. As my room was at the front, I didn't feel particularly safe during my stay. I hardly got any sleep between the very loud pub next door, drunk students outside and people coming and going from the guest house at 4am, stomping up and down stairs generally making as much noise as possible. The room itself was okay - the carpet was new and the bathroom was new, though unfinished. The rest of the furnishings in the room weren't new. There was no closet. The blinds were barely functional and filthy. Breakfast was nice. I understand that hotels need to refurbish, but they should probably close while they are doing this. And invest in some actual soundproofing. For what it is, refurbished or not, this hotel is NOT worth what they charge. Incredibly overpriced.

"Good location but not much else"
01/25/15 Dougypizza Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
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 not suit travellers. The shower pressure in the shared bathroom is terrible. There was building works in the building at the time we were there and construction began at 7:00am. If you are going to do construction works you should just close the guest house and complete them all in one go. I would stay here if it was 40 pounds a night but paying 120 pounds a night then I wouldn't be doing it EVER again. In summary, this is the worst accommodation I have ever stayed at in my travelling and I have stayed at many youth hostels.
