About
Description
First established as a coaching-inn in 1834, University Arms is now Cambridge’s leading hotel; following a two-year refurbishment led by Royal architect, John Simpson, and interior designer, Martin More Brudnizki, which saw the hotel substantially rebuilt and entirely re-imagined. 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: from its museums and galleries, to its restaurants and café’s, shopping, many of the University colleges, and the iconic Backs. Voted ‘City Hotel of the Year 2018’ by The Sunday Times, the property offers 192 en-suite bedrooms and suites, each individually and tastefully furnished with every room featuring the highest quality cotton sheets, bathroom amenities created especially for the hotel by D.R. Harris of St. James’s, air-conditioning, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, a smart television, and heated bathroom floors. Less

It’s £30 a night at the hotel, however local car park was £27, suggest you either pay the hotel or look for local streets or “park on my drive” or similar
