Ideally located in the centre of beautiful historic Cambridge, the Varsity is the only boutique hotel in the city. Very nicely furnished and with top floor rooms offering splendid views over the city. The roof top bar is a hot spot attracting both hotel guests and Cambridge residents looking for an exclusive place to celebrate a degree or just enjoy a drink. Staff is very friendly and helpful, and the River Café serves good food and a wonderful English breakfast to get you through the day. The Spa was a disappointment, with smelly steam room, malfunctioning jacuzzi and a sauna that wasn't hot enough. Also the rooms could be better soundproofed, and strangely there are no stores or shades to keep curious looks out so you need to close the curtains for full privacy, which is awkward during daytime. All in all a fine place but definitely overpriced and with some extra work needed.
