Excellent 5 star hotel with very friendly staff. Great large rooms, our one overlooked the park. Would highly recommend if you can afford it! (Cheeky image of the hotel used as its on a busy high street!)

About
Description
Voted “City Hotel of the Year 2018” by The Sunday Times, The University Arms is Cambridge’s leading hotel. First established as a coaching-inn in 1834, the hotel was recently re-opened following a two-year More refurbishment led by Royal architect, John Simpson, and interior designer, Martin Brudnizki. The hotel is also home to Parker’s Tavern, Tristan Welch’s quintessentially British brasserie, which has rapidly established itself as the city’s hottest bar and dining experience. Situated on historic Regent Street, in the heart of the city and adjacent to Parkers Piece; the hotel enjoys an enviable location in walking distance to the best the city has to offer. The full-service property offers 192 individually designed en-suite bedrooms and suites; a majestic ballroom and other meeting rooms, together with in-room and private dining facilities provided by Parker’s Tavern; as well as a well-stocked library, curated by Heywood Hill, the Mayfair booksellers, and a fully equipped gymnasium Less
