EXCLUSIVE: Operator secures planning permission for second boutique hotel in Cambridge


A hotel company has secured planning consent for a new luxury boutique hotel in Cambridge to add to its growing portfolio.

Construction work will shortly begin on transforming Grade-II listed Hobson House, the first police station in the city on St Andrew’s Street, into a new 56-suite hotel, atrium-style restaurant and meeting room in a project spearheaded by Henley Homes.

Each suite will be of high end spec and comprise a mini kitchen and luxury amenities in a concept designed to rival The Nadler.

The company currently owns and operates the Dunalastair Hotel Suites in the Scottish Highlands and is aiming to expand its collection to encompass five properties across the country.

Speaking to Boutique Hotelier, Nassar Khalil, director of Hotels and Leisure at Henley and chief executive of Rogue City Hotels said: “We are extremely excited to have secured planning consent for our next hotel in the heart of one of the UK’s most enchanting cities. As with all our hotels, our focus is to provide guests with design led luxury accommodation, exceptional service, comfort and convenience, and curate a special relationship with the local area. These summed up the key attributes of a Rogue City Hotel.”

Khalil also told BH that planning permission has just been submitted for 100 keys in the centre of Glasgow.
