The Varsity Hotel, in Cambridge is steeped in education references (the rooms named after colleges, artworks based on famous alumni). The hotel itself is located right on the riverside and boasts one of the best views in the city from its roof garden.
Most rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and all have easy access to the spa, gym, jacuzzi, steam room and lounge (with decanters of brandy and whisky to hand).
Tip: If you plan on punting the river Cam (and you should), pack a change of clothes which you don’t mind getting wet.
For adding fun between June and September the rooftop hosts cinema nights. Grab a warm jumper, a cocktail and loved one and watch a classic film as the sun sets over the beautiful city of Cambridge.
