The Varsity Hotel and Spa in Cambridge is to benefit from a £2m investment into a refurbishment.
According to a report on Cambridge Live, the hotel, which opened in 2010, will give each of its 44 bedrooms an uplift, installing Smart TVs, new-look bathrooms and bringing a fresh design to the fore.
The renovation is already in its initial stages, with an aim to be completed by January 2019.
Speaking to Cambridge Live, Roberto Pintus, general manager of The Varsity Hotel and Spa, said: “We are extremely pleased to announce a £2 million 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 new rooms will feature Herringbone wood flooring, bespoke handmade rugs and designer wallpaper, as well as underfloor heating, monsoon showers or Victorian free-standing baths with Elemis products in the bathrooms.
The Varsity Hotel is owned by former Cambridge University student Will Davies, the entrepreneur who also owns the adjoining Glassworks Health Club and Spa. Alongside its 44 bedrooms, the hotel is home to a roof terrace and bar, plus two restaurants, Six and The River Bar.
The Cambridge hotel market is booming at the moment, having been the location for many high-profile launches over the past year. The Tamburlaine opened in March last year, the first UK entry from Irish-based O’Callaghan Hotel Group, while The University Arms launched on August 1 after a £80m renovation.
News also came this month that Hotel Felix was being put up for sale, for the first time in its history, off a guide price of £8.5m
