Stayed one night at the Varsity recently while in Cambridge for a meeting but also had a chance to explore the beautiful city of Cambridge.
I was very impressed with the Varsity hotel, its location is perfect, right in the city centre which was great for me after my meeting as a base to do some exploring.
- The staff were very friendly when I arrived and very assertive. Everyone was very polite which sounds trivial but is very welcoming when staying in a hotel.
- The rooms are fantastic, the views I had from mine were superb, right over the top of the city which was at night.
- The room was immaculate and well equipped with a huge TV and DVD player, they had DVDs which you could ask for at reception which I felt was quite nice
- I believe that the restaraunt is available for evening meals but I actually met a friend at the Mitre pub round the corner for dinner and a drink which I would also recommend, good service and good food.
- Although I did not make use of the spa I had a look around and it looked great. I did however use the gym in the morning before I left which was very good, well equipped, clean and trendy.
Overall I had a very pleasurable stay at the Varsity hotel. I will definitely be returning when in Cambridge again and recommend it highly
