We held a party here on a Saturday night as part of a film festival. We also had lots of our guest speakers stay at the hotel over the weekend, and they all had a great time and really enjoyed the luxury, with one film star saying it was one of the best hotels they'd ever stayed in. The hotel itself is beautiful, and the rooms - especially the suites - are fantastically decorated, with the floor to ceiling windows giving stunning views of Cambridge.
It was a shame that the festival wasn't in the summer as the rooftop garden would have been a really glamorous place to launch. However, the bar and studio were great alternatives: the hotel had helped decorate the studio and the bar/restaurant has a view of the river and Magdelene college, which was pretty stunning, all lit up at night.
The party went really well: Marco and his team were efficient, friendly and charming and made the guests feel welcome, got them served quickly and generally helped it all go off with a bang.
I would definitely recommend the Varsity: Cambridge has been crying out for a beautiful boutique like this for a long time, and we were very relieved that we were able to offer our guest speakers such great accommodation with friendly service.
