The fact that we'd left the Hotel behind only really dawned on us as we headed back down the A14 into what other people call "real life". Had it really only been 24 hours that we'd stepped into the Oasis of The Varsity to enjoy a cheeky mid week break from the kids and to celebrate a birthday? In point of fact we were so sad to be leaving behind our beautifully appointed room and the good times which we'd enjoyed in this amazing hotel, that we'd forgotten the name of at least one of our kids, replaced by Tariq, one of the most gracious hosts a guest could hope to meet. His team were so helpful, so aware of what we needed from our stay, that we'd have them all over to us in the summer. You know - to return the favour.
A perfect position in the heart Cambridge with beautiful panoramic views from the 5th floor. The spa facilities are excellent and just when you feel at your healthiest, there's a brilliant cooked breakfast to redress the balance.
Thank you Tariq and friends. We loved it and we'll be back. (My other half is travel journalist but I beat her to it this time!)
