I went here for a work Christmas meal. The venue was nice and attractively decorated and the staff were all very friendly. However, the food was truly dire. The turkey was overcooked and very thinly sliced, looking more like preformed meat than actual turkey. The...More

About
Description
Tamburlaine is more than a remarkable hotel. It is an open invitation for Cambridge to gather. A strikingly elegant destination where in-the-know locals and discerning visitors can meet and mingle, work, rest More and stay. At the heart of Tamburlaine are two floors of stunning shared spaces for our guests to make their own, whether they drop by for a coffee or stay with us for a week. Each area offers its own distinctive setting, mood and atmosphere. From the contagious buzz and energy of the Restaurant and Bar, to the genteel grandeur of the Garden Room. From the easy informality of Steam Deli to the restful calm of the Library. Complete with all the trimmings and trappings you’d expect from a gleaming new four-star property, the sizeable and sumptuous guest rooms come in three academia-inspired categories: Fresher, Scholar and Dean. They assure state-of-the-art comfort by way of handmade King Koil beds, marble-clad bathrooms with retro Roberts radios, all surrounded by dark wood panelling, polished concrete, velvet fabrics and brass details.

I always park at the train station car park and use the ringgo app to pay as it’s cheaper. Hope this helps.
