UK: The Fellows House Cambridge, a 131-room aparthotel, has opened for business.

The property is part of Hilton's Curio Collection, a global portfolio of more than 100 "one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts, each handpicked for its distinctive character and unique charm".

Located a short walk from the city centre, the River Cam and Jesus Green, the hotel will provide "a range of carefully curated experiences designed to unlock the history of the city and showcase its full offering from the authentic perspective of a local".

The room types are named after people associated with the city and notable Cambridge fellows such as Kipling, Newton, Gormley and Attenborough. This includes king rooms, studios and one-bedroom apartments, together with Fellows Duplex apartments split across two levels. All studios and apartments have fully equipped kitchens, "ideal for relocation, project workers and extended stay alongside workation-style getaways". Families can stay in a one-bedroom apartment or in the two-bedroom The Fellows Family connecting room.

Steve Cassidy, managing director, UK & Ireland, Hilton said: “We are thrilled to open this unique property in the historic city of Cambridge. It has something for everyone, offering the perfect base to return to after a long day of exploring, working or studying. As we all look forward to travelling again, we’re delighted to be giving guests more choice, with 14 new properties opening across the UK this year, extending our world-renowned hospitality.”

Julian Hudson, general manager of The Fellows House, Curio Collection by Hilton, said: “The Fellows House is ideal for short city breaks and extended stays, and has been carefully designed to ensure it is accessible to all guests. Situated in the heart of Cambridge, our exciting new opening is ideally located to experience the entire city, alongside offering an indoor spa and courtyard area and a delicious café, restaurant and bar.”

The Folio Bar & Kitchen will serve "plant-based dishes and British comfort classics with locally sourced ingredients".

Amenities include onsite car park, multiple electric car charging ports, indoor swimming pool, gym, sauna, steam room and bicycles for hire. The hotel’s Hawking Suite boardroom seats up to 10 people and doubles up as an event space and private dining room.
