Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough! We stayed recently for our anniversary and from arrival to departure every member of staff in the hotel, restaurants and spa were so friendly, smiley and helpful and couldn't do enough for us, with some special touches as it was our anniversary. An amazingly relaxing morning in the spa with some great treatments followed by a superb afternoon tea in Six Bar with a lovely glass of champagne enjoying the panoramic views of Cambridge! One of the best steaks I've ever had (Porterhouse) in the River Bar in the evening accompanied with some great wine! Evening was capped off with some delicious cocktails in Six Bar! Room was luxurious and the bed super comfortable, anything we needed was at the tap of a screen using the state of the art in room technology. Perfect central location for exploring Cambridge and valet parking ensured no hassle with parking! Thanks to everyone at the Varsity for an amazing stay, we will definitely be back!!

Dinner at Six Bar was amazing. Located on the top floor of the Varsity Hotel. Great choice of dishes and drinks. I recommend the ‘Corpse Reviver’ cocktail! The whole floor is We chose to sit on the balcony which gave lovely views of Cambridge. The food was delicious, well flavoured and presented incredibly (see photos below). After dinner we went up to the Roof Terrace and enjoyed some more wonderful cocktails, there were plenty of seating options with tables for 2 or 4 around the outside and comfortable garden style sofas and tables throughout the centre for a more relaxed vibe. The views were fantastic. Overall a great evening out with a great sunset to finish.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at varsity. The hotel is in a great location and the view from our room was stunning. We enjoyed a cocktail or ten on the roof terrace and the centre of Cambridge was just on our door step. The staff were so friendly and polite and couldn’t do enough for us. The hotel gym is also And we’ve seen a view. 5 star experience.

We arrived in Cambridge at around 5pm on Sunday, looked at trip advisor and the Varsity Hotel and Spa stood out for us. I phoned the Hotel and Luke, the Duty Manager, was very helpful. We stayed for one night and were so impressed with the quality of both the customer services and facilities at this hotel. We slept really well and the location of the hotel was right in the middle of all that Cambridge offers, but still also tucked away from the hustle and bustle . The Six Restaurant on the 5th floor has some amazing views over the city. Thank you to Luke, Dario and all the team. You made our overnight stay a joy. Would highly recommend this hotel for first timers to Cambridge.
