stayed for two night at the Varsity. Really liked the room on the 5th floor with extensive views over Cambridge. Service was excellent, very efficient and dealt with everything we required in a very nice way. Hotel is very centrally located and therefore everything within the City is at hand, we had dinner in the Riverside restaurant/bar one evening, steak was very nicely done and service unobtrusive but very accomodating. Table next to us also had steaks and commented that they were very well cooked. In general we really enjoyed the Varsity experience, have recommended to friends and would go back. We also used the roof terrace as the weather was kind! Great location but limited snacks and nibbles available to go with drinks, could be improved upon. One other slight caveat is that there is no on site parking which is a bit of a bind if you leave something in your car, that said the valet service provided worked seamlessly
