Review: The Cambridge Belfry


Book A Stay

A recent visit to Cambridge, I discovered a real gem of a hotel, The Cambridge Belfry. This luxury 4 star hotel is located in Cambourne, 8 miles west of Cambridge. The setting is peaceful and on the edge of a lake. There is plenty of room for the numerous facilities and parking is free! If you want to go for a walk in the countryside as well as visit Cambridge, this really is the perfect spot.


The Cambridge Belfry hotel offers a peaceful retreat within easy reach of the area’s most popular attractions. The beautiful University of Cambridge and Cambridge Botanical Gardens is just a short drive away and a definite must-see. History buffs will want to visit Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial, honoring the fallen American servicemen and women of World War II, as well as explore the vast collection of aircraft, military vehicles, artillery and minor naval vessels at Duxford Air Museum.

Why We Love This Hotel

This hotel is packed with facilities. The pool is fantastic and a wonderful place to enjoy a quiet swim, particularly during weekdays. The pool also has a Jacuzzi, a steam room and a sauna. The Spa is also a highlight as it is by ESPA, a brand that we love.

Best Time To Visit

There can be no bad time to visit Cambridge. Although late Spring and Summer bring the most visitors, who like to punt around this historic town. Even on rainy days, there is plenty to do. We particularly like visiting in the summer as you can take your lunch outside in the sunshine.

How To Get There

It really couldn’t be easier. Cambridge is on a regular mainline service out of London, or you can drive and make use of the free parking.

Service & Facilities

This is where the hotel excels. Beyond the pool and spa, there is a fitness center and tennis court. This hotel is a brilliant place to host your next meeting or special event in their 645 sq. m. of meeting space.
