4 star hotel ‘The Tamburlaine’ set to open at CB1 Cambridge

A new 4 star superior hotel ‘The Tamburlaine’ is on schedule to open in spring 2017 at CB1.

Part of the O’Callaghan Hotels Group the landmark hotel will attract business and leisure travellers to the vibrant new city quarter being developed around Cambridge station by Brookgate.

The Tamburlaine hotel will serve as a gathering place for the community, a destination for local clientele with a restaurant, bar and a standalone café. It will also provide 155 modern rooms and suites fitted out with the most up to date technology, along with meeting rooms with state of the art audio and visual equipment.

The artist Jyll Bradly has been commissioned to produce the public art which will feature at the front of the hotel. Jyll’s installations, drawings and light box works engage with identity and place. Light is an important feature in her work, and she talks of using it to “bring things into the present”, working with architecture, site and community.

“We are very excited to be opening our first UK Hotel in Cambridge, in the heart of this vibrant and exciting quarter, CB1" says O’Callaghan Hotels Group CEO Bryan O’Callaghan.

“The Tamburlaine will be a great addition to the community and we hope to establish it as much a place to meet up for locals as it will be for business and leisure travellers. Our reputation has been built on friendly, high quality service for the discerning visitor and we are very much looking forward to catering for the UK market with The Tamburlaine”.

Spokesperson at Brookgate said “The Tumberlaine Hotel is rapidly taking shape and the opening of a four star hotel will be significant milestone in the development of CB1. The exclusive hotel is a major contribution to the transformation of the area around the station, creating a destination and a sense of place, in what will be a new city quarter for Cambridge.”
