An excellent intimate hotel in an excellent location - expensive but value-for-money.
The sixty rooms are large, well-appointed, comfortable. Service is top class. The restaurant menu, food, service & ambience are all up to the same high standard. it's just a short stroll into the centre of the city.
Unique Quality: So unlike far too many hotels around the world which are bland and could be anywhere, the Royal Cambridge has a lovely English country house atmosphere, perfect for a historic city such as Cambridge. The large, comfortable rooms are well decorated and furnished in the same traditional style.
Various events are held through the year - Murder Mystery, Mothers Day, Burns Night, Comedy Night and so on.
Directions: From the centre of the city it's about 1 mile south down Trinity Street/King's Parade.
When a hotel adds 'royal' to it's name I always worry. Does it mean that the rooms are fit for a king, or does it just mean that the King of Albania once let his dog piddle up the lampost of the hotel in a former incarnation in 1723 ?
Either way, the hotel trades on it's supposed 'poshness', but takes the tack of presenting itself in that awful 'Disneyesque' style of 'ye olde medieval england'. Acres of red carpet, shields and brass things abound over the public rooms, that are just too dammed 'busy'.
You would half expect the serving staff to appear in tradegies of beefeater costumes and serve 'Authentik ye olde medieval hamburgers with Robin Hood relish' to the customers.
If you have no taste and are an American then you will probably like the Georgian townhouses that are knocked through to create this place. If not, then at one hundred and fifty quid a night plus the hotel is way overpriced.
