Details

Cambridge is not only a hub for high technology companies; it is also a Mecca for tourists.

In this city's fiercely competitive hotel sector any service that makes the stay of guests more enjoyable or productive is highly prized.

The Lensfield Hotel, Established since 1959 has become a relaxing well-appointed sanctuary offering high standards of personal service for business travellers, visitors from overseas and many undergraduates and their parents.

Located in the heart of this beautiful historic city (a city renowned with Byron, Newman, Darwin and Rupert Brook) and within walking distance to all university colleges, especially the notorious "Kings", the University Botanic Garden, museums, parks and open spaces, entertainment and the shopping vicinity.

Our travellers can enjoy a high standard of service and comfort. The hotel and all 30 bedrooms have been individually furnished with the tasteful blend of pastel shades and cherry wood, and are fully centrally heated to create a warm and relaxing atmosphere.

Special short breaks welcomed.

Accredited with 3 stars and a Silver Award by The Tourism Council and AA.

    “Perfect for my needs”

    Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Room small, but this is what I wanted so perfect for my needs and very good value for money. Location within the city very good, but some noise from the main road. Shower door difficult to close - mentioned to staff on the desk and they were apologetic and immediately made a note to get it fixed. Breakfast good, friendly service. Overall a very good experience and would definitely stay again if the small room (good value for money) was available.
