The Fellows House Cambridge opened its doors on 1 July, marking the first Curio Collection by Hilton in the idyllic city and Hilton’s second property in Cambridge.
The 131-room apartment-style hotel joins the global portfolio of more than 100 one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts, each handpicked for its distinctive character and unique charm. The hotel will host Cambridge’s discerning clientele, as well as international visitors seeking somewhere to eat, drink and stay in style.
Located a short walk from the city centre, and a stone’s throw from the River Cam and Jesus Green, it is the perfect base to explore Cambridge’s famous colleges, the Bridge of Sighs, the University of Cambridge museums and Botanic Gardens. The hotel will provide a range of carefully curated experiences designed to unlock the history of the city and showcase its full offering from the authentic perspective of a local.
The hotel will feature unique pieces of artwork and sculptures, all designed locally in Cambridge. The room types are all named after people associated with the city and notable Cambridge fellows such as Kipling, Newton, Gormley and Attenborough. This includes king rooms, studios and one-bedroom apartments, together with Fellows Duplex apartments split across two levels. All studios and apartments have fully equipped kitchens, ideal for relocation, project workers and extended stay alongside workation-style getaways. Families can comfortably stay in a one-bedroom apartment or in the two-bedroom The Fellows Family connecting room.
Steve Cassidy, managing director, UK & Ireland, Hilton said, “We are thrilled to open this unique property in the historic city of Cambridge. It has something for everyone, offering the perfect base to return to after a long day of exploring, working or studying.
