I stayed here for 7 nights while attending a conference sponsored by the Fitzwilliam Museum. The hotel is less than two blocks away. My single room was very comfortable and clean. Excellent housekeeping services. I ate dinner in the hotel four nights; the food was fine and the service mostly very attentive. Front desk was helpful.
We enjoyed our stay at this venue. Our bedrooms in the old stable block were clean and well serviced although the stairway could be improved. The mansion house itself was one of the quirkiest places we have stayed in, full of family history, paintings and a very mixed collection of artifacts throughout. The bar was run on an honesty basis and a night's stay included breakfast.
We only stayed in Cambridge for one night, but were so pleased we chose the Varsity Hotel. Our room was lovely; very clean, spacious and had a balcony. All staff were helpful and professional. We had a car and they offer a valet service. Definitely recommend this. The staff took very good care of our car and there is really no where else to park and the streets are very narrow. The location of the hotel is perfect; walking distance to explore the downtown and some great restaurants for dinner. Loved it. Would stay there again!

Had a fabulous weekend break in Cambridge. Chose this hotel based on location and other customers' reviews. Not disappointed. Lovely staff, spacious room with fabulous bed and great location for shopping, restaurants and the colleges. Would definitely recommend.
This hotel is convenient if you have a car but not if you do not. It is ok but the beds are not great and the pillows are awful. It is not a bad price and the breakfast is good. It also has a very good gym and nice pool. Overall I would say that this hotel is perfectly fine it is just that the bedrooms are ok but not of a 4 star standard. Also on weekends there is always noisy groups who seem to come back to their bedrooms in the early hours which is rather annoying.
The staff are friendly though. It takes about 15 minutes to drive into Cambridge so long as there is no traffic.
"Had four days here. The staff were very attentive."
Had a good stay. Used the swimming pool and Jacuzzi which was all very clean.
The standard room we booked was clean, comfortable & big enough for us.
Great choice of food at breakfast, they even had a pancake making machine, didn't use it but something different.
We used the restaurant every night while there and the food was cooked lovely.I particularly liked the cod with red pesto.
A couple of thank you's to Conner who worked in the restaurant & Alysa, their customer service was exceptional.

This contemporary four-floor hotel is set in the Cambridgeshire countryside and is 10.5 miles from the historic university …More
Floating in the misty fens, this beautiful university city attracts hordes of visitors to its gothic spires, shady cloisters and wide open parks. In the summer, sun seekers punt along the Cam or picnic under the willows that line its banks. Strawberry Fair free music festival takes place early in June and the city's famous folk festival is in July. The view from Castle Hill is worth the climb.
