The 155 guestrooms take advantage of the contemporary building's assets with floor-to-ceiling windows, but nod to the city's historic colleges with Cambridge-blue décor and dark wood paneling. Inspired by the university, room categories include entry-level Fresher Rooms with super-king size beds and marble bathrooms, upgraded Scholar Rooms where separate seating areas allow you to make the most of the superior views from the hotel's higher floors, and the exquisite Dean Suites with additional living areas and private balconies that allow you entertain while admiring the view.
The friendly concierge team is efficient and always ready to help with local knowledge, including tips on uncovering hidden gems within the historic city. The team will also go out of its way to personalize your stay at the Tamburlaine.
From breakfast to a late evening dinner, the Tamburlaine's four distinctive dining areas can cater to your needs with a variety of atmospheres and menus.
Bar and Restaurant – The Art Deco-inspired brasserie — complete with a striking carved marble bar — is open throughout the day. Accents of leather, brass, and wood create a warm and convivial atmosphere in which to enjoy meals with an emphasis on seasonality and local sourcing, and signature cocktails including the house favorite, a Persian Martini. At breakfast, choose from the continental buffet or order eggs and pancakes cooked to order. Return at lunch or dinner to try gourmet takes on the classics including braised lamb pie, roast butternut risotto, fish and chips, steaks, and burgers.
Garden Room – This captivating, Victorian-styled room is filled with lush greenery and sumptuous velvet sofas. Order a light lunch, or one of the hotel's exceptional afternoon teas that can be paired with a glass of champagne or English sparkling wine.
The Library – Read a book, catch up on work, or simply channel your turn-of-the-century nostalgia in the wood-paneled library where armchairs flank the open fire and period prints line the walls. Order teas, coffees, and light bites, or settle down with a glass of something stronger.
Steam Deli – The hotel’s modern delicatessen is ideal for a pick-me-up morning coffee or a sandwich to go.
Get the day off to a good start with a workout at the well-equipped gym, and return from sightseeing or a successful business meeting to relax in the genteel library. Later, retire to your guestroom and suite, and enjoy entertainment from the comfort of your King Koil bed.
The beautiful Cambridge University Botanical Gardens is right on your doorstep, and the venerable Fitzwilliam Museum is a short walk away. Take the route along the pretty River Cam into the town center on foot or by bike, where you can explore the world-famous university colleges or take a punt along the backs — that's the local lingo for hiring a boat on the river.
Right next to Cambridge Station, the Tamburlaine is at the heart of a vibrant, regenerated neighborhood of soaring glass and concrete architecture that reflects this forward-looking city's future. The historic colleges, so redolent of its long and glorious past, are a 10-minute walk away.
