The Varsity Hotel & Spa


Located on the banks of the River Cam opposite Magdalene College, The Varsity Hotel and Spa is a chic, modern hotel in the heart of Cambridge. Spread across a renovated former brewery it offers contemporary restaurants, an exquisite spa, and a spacious astroturf roof terrace.

The 44 uniquely designed guestrooms and suites are designed to celebrate Cambridge’s rich cultural heritage. Spacious and welcoming, they feature quirky décor and artworks, en suites with rain shower and freestanding bathtubs, and floor-to-ceiling windows. The roomy suites have private balconies, separate lounges, and 19” Apple Macs.

Sip a cocktail or craft gin on the rooftop bar before dining in the steakhouse or Six Brasserie, while enjoying views of the river and some of the city’s key colleges.

Go punting on the Cam, use the complimentary bikes to explore Cambridge’s colleges and chapels, enjoy a champagne afternoon tea, and leave time to rejuvenate in the spa.

Why we recommend The Varsity Hotel & Spa

This is a smart and classy urban hotel that’s ideally located and nods to Cambridge’s rich cultural heritage. The décor throughout is sophisticated but understated, decorated with exposed bricks, stylish wallpaper, scientific journal articles and sculptures of bicycles. The rooms feature all modern amenities and there are several casual and credible dining options. When the weather is good, the hip rooftop bar is a winner.
