Hotel du Vin practically invented the boutique hotel concept, and its clever mix of indulgent brasserie and bar, and chic, pared-down rooms works perfectly in this former university building.  

Parts date back to medieval times, but the classic chocolate-and-honey decor ensures the bistro and bar feel warm and buzzy. Serious vinophiles can book tastings with the hotel’s sommelier. 

Surrounding area

Flanked by former university buildings and Regency Terraces, Trumpington Street is at the very heart of Cambridge, with the impressive facade of the Fitzwilliam Museum and several of the college buildings just up the road. The area buzzes with tourists in the day, and the road is quite busy with traffic, although things quieten down in the evening. 

The River Cam is just a couple of minutes’ walk away and the wide, open space of Parker’s Piece, a few minutes’ walk in the other direction, is perfect for a picnic or watching a game of cricket.
