Cambridge hotel reveals guestroom refurb worth £2m
The Varsity, a Cambridge-based hotel and spa, has unveiled a refurbishment project to its bedrooms costing £2m.
The hotel located in Thompson’s Lane, close to Kings College was opened by Cambridge graduate Will Davies in 2010. The large-scale upgrade to the Varsity’s 44 guestrooms is part of an initiative to encourage and evolve business for the hotel which began in September 2018.
Each of the bedrooms has now undergone an entire redesign that bestows it with an “individual character”. A selection of brand new technology products has also been introduced to keep in step with the times and meet current demand. International format power sockets are fitted in each suite and in-room tablets are now provided.
General manager for The Varsity, Robert Pintus, commented on the results:
“We are extremely pleased to have completed a £2m refurbishment of our 44 guest rooms. The new design reflects the heart of the hotel and represents our constant desire to ensure that all guests have the best experience possible.”
The renovated rooms now sport a variety of new features increasing the sophistication of the suites. All new herringbone wood floors are adorned with handmade rugs and the walls are patterned with paper from Colefax and Fowler and Designers Guild. The en-suite bathrooms are now finished in marble or sandstone and fitted with monsoon showers and the comfort of underfloor heating.
The Varsity’s signature suite has also been remodelled with glass from floor to ceiling, allowing guests panoramic vistas of the Cambridge skyline.
