We were meeting old friends in Cambridge as it was a half way point and we saw the Varsity online.
The hotel in reality certainly didn't disappoint and lived up to the very cool images on the website.
The room was just fantastic and we had a view over the beautiful college roof tops.
We didn't want to leave the room and it was harder to leave the hotels roof terrace after pre dinner drinks as the city view from there was jaw dropping.
The brilliant hotel staff recommended where we and our friends should go and we had a great Friday night out.
We all though agreed that we wanted to just get back to the hotel and we all piled into one room.
It was so refreshing to have 24Hr room service with a large food and drink menu instead of the usual nuts and chocolate in a mini bar.
We eventually turned in and the next day had a great breakfast in the hotels restaurant adjacent. It was all over too soon.
We are planning an extended return trip especially as we want to try out the very cool gym and spa.
We can't recommended this very cool boutique hotel enough.
