Hallmark Hotel Cambridge
Cambridge University may have tutored the likes of Salman Rushdie, Stephen Hawking and Alan Turing, along with a host of Nobel Prizewinners and renowned intellectuals. But you don’t need a stratospheric IQ to see that the Hallmark Hotel Cambridge (formerly part of Menzies Hotels), five miles northeast of the famous academic city, has everything that a business traveler or a short break might need. Absolutely everything.
Cocooned in 200 verdant acres of flowers, trees and manicured lawns, its 136 en suite rooms ooze contemporary style with a palate of creams, rich reds and warm wood, punctuated by bold splashes of colour. Whatever type you chose, from business double to executive king or family, or even our luxurious Fairways Suite, you’re guaranteed warp speed WiFi – what else would you expect from the university that has forged some of the world’s most brilliant scientific minds? – 24-hour room service and a flat screen plasma TV.
Excuse the academic references but to go with the first class accommodation our food also takes top honours. Served in our bright airy brasserie the menu relies on fresh seasonal ingredients for modern British and European dishes, sprinkled with spicy favourites from further afield. You could try arancini, bouillabaisse or Moroccan style slow cooked lamb with couscous and harissa, or keep it close to home with beer-battered fish and homemade pie and mash.
You won’t just eat and sleep, however. You’ll also relax. Seriously relax. There’s a bag of attractions nearby from Cambridge’s honey stoned museums and colleges to Newmarket racecourse and Duxford’s Imperial War Museum. And, of course, there’s our gorgeous grounds including an 18-hole, par 72 golf course that has hosted professional tournaments including the PGA East Anglian Open. Drive off here and you follow in the spiked footsteps of Tom Watson, Nick Faldo and Seve Ballesteros.
And that’s just the beautiful tip of our leisure iceberg. The Hallmark Hotel Cambridge also has two tennis courts, a state-of-the-art gym and a splendid 16m indoor pool, flooded with daylight beneath a beamed ceiling, alongside a Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. They’re topped off by The Retreat, our two serene beauty rooms where highly qualified professionals provide everything from aromatherapy, hot stone and Swedish massages, to Thalgo facials, waxes and manicures.
Whether you’re here for a business meeting or a leisure break, it’s good to know you can keep up your exercise routine or chill out completely. We have a 16-metre indoor swimming pool, a well-equipped gym, sauna, steam-room, spa bath and tennis courts.
Pack your golf clubs and follow in the footsteps of Tom Watson, Nick Faldo and Seve Ballesteros. The 6,750 yard, par 72 The Cambridgeshire Golf Course has hosted a number of professional tournaments over the years. There is a clubhouse, pro shop and golf tuition.
Are you recently engaged and wondering where to hold your wedding in Cambridge? Take a look at our beautiful events suites. The Terrace Room is perfect for small parties, while we often host parties for 200 guests in the Cambridgeshire Suite.
Our stellar leisure facilities are an absolute blessing for anyone needing to switch off from a conference or work trip, and for guests attending one of the hotel’s many private functions. One of the area’s leading venues, we’re used to hosting weddings and celebrations from birthday, anniversary and prom parties to sporting and charity dinners – and even the odd graduation!
It’s no surprise we’re a hotspot for events.

And we also have the brilliant staff.

They’ll take the strain from start to finish ensuring your business function or private celebration is a real success.
