I spent one night here while visiting my son at University and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I would certainly stay at the Varsity Hotel again when visiting in future. Although the reception area is quite cramped, this is more than overcome by the friendliness of the welcome. I arrived mid-morning on the day of my stay, without warning them in advance that I would be early, and I was of course much too early to expect access to my room but they made every effort to accelerate the cleaning from the night before so that I was given access by lunchtime - much appreciated. The rooms are modern stylish and comfortable and have lots of nice touches like fresh coffee and magazines. Do ask for one of the room on the top floors though in order to enjoy the views.
I didn't mind going next door for breakfast and the breakfast was good, though not quite as good as the hotel itself.
The location is superb for those wanting to visit the historic heart of Cambridge.
