The University Arms: A Stay to Remember
The epitome of elegance and eccentricity, the University Arms is a landmark of luxury for a quintessentially Cambridge getaway
Rather like the Fitzwilliam Museum or the piercing spires of King’s College, the University Arms is an icon of the Cambridge landscape.
As the city’s oldest hotel, since 1834 the building has sat in its majestic position overlooking Parker’s Piece and historic Regent Street.
To step inside its walls is to encounter a world of calm sophistication where history rubs shoulders with modernity in undeniable style.
In its 192 luxury rooms and suites spread across four floors, the venue features abundant natural light, classic Edwardian interiors and lavish details like tiered chandeliers and bespoke leather-padded writing desks.
A haven for hospitality, Parker’s Tavern combines a cosmopolitan feel with the refinement of a university hall.
As a destination for dining, the bustling restaurant upholds the finest British produce and promises the ultimate Sunday roast for lazy afternoons of fine feasting.
For something sweeter, there is no better place for a sumptuously seasonal afternoon tea, served laden with freshly baked scones and lavished with clotted cream.
For true decadence, afternoon teas can be combined with a spa treatment delivered in the serene suite of new treatment and relaxation rooms.
Unwind in the expert hands of Aromatherapy Associates – one of Britain’s leading wellbeing brands – for relaxation through the finest natural ingredients.
As evening falls, the bar is transformed into a thriving hotspot boasting an unparalleled cocktail list and well-stocked wine cellar.
Every Friday night, the space comes alive with live jazz performances from 7.30pm, as you sip cocktails to the sound of the Sam Miles Trio and the Andy Bowie quartet.
While anyone looking to stop by is guaranteed a warm welcome, there is no better way to experience the true magic of the University Arms than by staying overnight.
Surrounded by tasteful interiors and vibrant furnishings – with an in-house Book Butler on hand to deliver curated reading material – you are promised a restful stay in this tasteful oasis of calm.
