A brand-new, gorgeous designer-led Cambridge hotel, with an ideal location by the train station - including full English breakfast and a welcome cocktail

Tamburlaine, an incredibly smart hotel named after a play by Corpus Christi College fellow Christopher Marlowe, is the first UK venture for the Dublin-based O’Callaghan Collection. Located just a stone’s throw from Cambridge train station, you'll be close to the heart of the city and all its enchanting sights.

Complete with all the trimmings and trappings you’d expect from a gleaming new property, the sizeable and sumptuous guest rooms come in three academia-inspired categories: Fresher, Scholar and Dean. They assure state-of-the-art comfort by way of handmade King Koil beds, marble-clad bathrooms and custom-made work desks, all surrounded by dark wood panelling, polished concrete, velvet fabrics and brass details.

Elsewhere, there’s a brasserie-style restaurant, and stunning communal areas designed by the London Shoreditch-based Bryan O’Sullivan Studio. Equally worthy of your attention are the Garden Room for traditional afternoon teas, and the horseshoe-shaped bar for signature cocktails prepared by a team of resident mixologists.


It’s all sophistication and class in each of the rooms here, which blend Cambridge blue, dark wood panelling, polished concrete, gleaming brass, bespoke furniture and richly patterned velvets, together with state-of-the-art comforts. Complete with floor-to-ceiling windows for plenty of natural light, the spacious Fresher room comes with a handmade King Koil bed dressed with a deep duck down topper and Egyptian cotton linens, and a marble-clad bathroom with deep-pile towels.

Head to the elegant brasserie-style restaurant with its accents of soft leather, gleaming brass, salvaged timber and pendant lighting to savour dishes created with locally-sourced seasonal dishes, or prop yourself up at the horseshoe-shaped cocktail bar to sample classic cocktails artfully prepared by a team of resident mixologists. There’s also the Garden Room and its adjoining open-air terrace for afternoon tea, anytime drinks and light bites, and The Library for sweet and savoury plates, signature coffees, specialty teas, and suggested wine pairings.


With the train station a two-minute walk away, you’ll be no more than a 25-minute walk from the heart of the action. For first-timers and returning visitors, must-dos include visiting any of the spectacular 31 Cambridge University Colleges, ogling paintings by Constable, Hogarth and Gainsborough at the Fitzwilliam Museum, marvelling at 8,000-plus plant species at the stunning Cambridge University Botanic Garden, and punting on the River Cam. Further thrills include hitting the cobbled streets for quirky one-off boutiques, shopping for high-street fashion offerings at the Grand Arcade, and kicking back with a pint at any number of riverside bars. Tamburlaine is a minutes’ walk from Cambridge railway station.
