Details

Built in 1852 as a family home by a well-known surgeon at nearby Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Hotel Felix is a blend of Victorian architecture and contemporary comfort. It was Cambridge’s first independent boutique hotel, just a mile from the city centre, with plenty of free parking and set in three acres of grounds. The building became a hotel in 2002 after much renovation and refurbishment work. Bedrooms and reception rooms are decorated with an eclectic mix of modern artwork. Suitable for a relaxing weekend break, an idyllic Cambridge wedding, a meeting, celebratory dinner, or a friends’ meeting place for a scrumptious afternoon tea, the Felix will not disappoint.

The AA two-rosette Graffiti Restaurant is presided over by head chef Ashley Bennett and specialises in modern British cuisine with a Mediterranean twist. Dinner might start with teriyaki duck, continue with wild sea bass with summer vegetable chowder, and finish with a rhubarb cheesecake with goat’s curd sorbet. Breakfast is equally delicious and afternoon tea with homemade cakes and scones served with jam and clotted cream is also popular.

Bedrooms are comfortable and stylish, with king size Hypnos mattresses, finest Egyptian cotton sheets, duck down duvets. Mini bars, laptop safes, WiFi and satellite TV. Bathrooms come with underfloor heating, bathrobes and White Company toiletries. Suites have remote control TVs at the end of the baths!

Four private function rooms provide a venue for a business or private event. The Felix is also excellently situated for a parental visit to the university or theatre, or as a base to explore the city’s excellent shops, historic colleges and museums.

The Felix is an oasis of classic indulgence and contemporary style in this historic and buzzing city.

A supplement of £15 per Stay will be charged for dogs staying in their owners’ room. The charge will be made directly to the hotel upon departure.

    “Very comfortable but room a bit hot”

    There was a wedding the night we stayed which meant staff were very busy and we could not sit down for breakfast straight away even though it finished in 10 mins! But noise not a problem and breakfast was delicious. Would stay again.
