As the first Graduate Hotel to open in Britain, this 4-star boutique 148-room hotel has the best views in Cambridge and is surrounded by the beautiful River Cam. The hotel’s design is “rooted in storytelling” and acknowledges Cambridge’s rich history including a giant hanging model of the DNA double helix - in celebration of Rosalind Franklin who helped uncover the secrets of DNA at the University. Splashes of Cambridge Blue adorn the guestrooms along with bedside built-ins in the design of iconic punt boats while classic desks give each room a studious feel.
Beyond the guestrooms, the team at Bryan Ashley also crafted various tables, benches, sofas, and lounge chairs throughout The Garden House, bar, lounge, and public space areas. Traditional rich wood finishes and patterned wallpapers were paired perfectly with floral and velvety upholsteries creating somewhat of an Edwardian decor.
