With a wide range of accommodation on offer, you’re certain to be spoilt for choice when selecting the right place to stay in Cambridge.
Cambridge’s charm, history, attractions and accommodation make it a popular destination amongst solo travellers, couples, families, groups and business people, but which area is the best place to spend your time in this amazing city?
As a leading provider of luxury serviced accommodation throughout Cambridge, we know every part of the city inside out. Here our local experts share their top places to stay so you can plan a trip to Cambridge with confidence.
With the River Cam and Jesus College both bordering the green, you’ll find plenty of natural beauty and stunning architecture to admire in this area. Jesus Green itself is a stunning, open green space that’s located just to the north of the city centre.
You can enjoy Jesus Green whatever season you’re staying. But the area is particularly vibrant in summer when locals and visitors alike come to picnic, play and relax. Summer also sees one of Cambridgeshire’s best lidos open for the season here.
If Jesus Green sounds like the place for you, book Marino Place. Available as a studio or one-bedroom apartment, this luxury serviced accommodation overlooks the green and is just a stone’s throw away from the city centre.
If a village vibe away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre is more your thing, you’ll want to head to East Chesterton. This area is particularly popular with the locals; its close-knit community is just 30 minutes walk from the heart of Cambridge, which makes it something of a hotspot.
East Chesterton is also popular with business travellers, with the area’s proximity to the world-famous science and business parks convenient for corporate stays.
Whether you’re travelling to Cambridge for work or leisure, our one-bedroom deluxe apartments at Franklin Court in East Chesterton offer a home away from home with all the luxury extras, not to mention free on-site parking.
Cambridge city centre
Want to be at the heart of the action? Then a centrally located serviced apartment is the right choice for you.
As well as having countless eateries and attractions right on the doorstep of your city centre accommodation, you’ll be perfectly positioned to see the sights, and as Visit Cambridge describes there’s lots to take in:
“Another wonderful side effect of all that history is stunning campuses. Its 31 different and distinct colleges all have their own history, stories and style. Sights include magnificent libraries, beautiful courts and breathtaking views from the Bridge of Sighs (Queen Victoria’s favourite) and the mind-boggling Mathematical Bridge.”
Based just 5 minutes walk from the city centre, Midsummer Mews is one of our most popular serviced apartments, and for good reason. Available as a studio, one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartment, Midsummer Mews is what city living is all about.
The setting for several Cambridge events – including the annual Party on the Piece – Petersfield is a great place to stay to get a sense of the city’s community spirit. It’s also home to our one-, two- and three-bedroom Vesta Apartments serviced accommodation that’s certain to be a big hit if you’re travelling as a family or group.
Our Vesta Apartments are super luxurious, with all the amenities and mod cons you need to enjoy a great stay in a fabulous location. You’ll also have access to a private balcony with the most beautiful views over the city of Cambridge.
