The Fellows House Cambridge has opened its doors, marking the first Curio Collection by Hilton in the city and Hilton’s second property in Cambridge.

The 131-room apartment-style hotel features a signature restaurant, The Folio Bar & Kitchen, a swimming pool and a gym and joins a global portfolio of more than 100 hotels and resorts.

The hotel features unique pieces of artwork and sculptures, all designed locally in Cambridge. The room types are all 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, for relocation, project workers and extended stay alongside workcation-style getaways.

The Folio Bar & Kitchen will serve plant-based dishes and British comfort classics with locally sourced ingredients, from roasted cauliflower steak to beetroot wellington.

The Sage of Cambridge, a coffee shop by day will offer colourful, health-conscious options including wraps, smoothies and vegan salads, as well as freshly baked breads and pastries, transforming into a vibrant wine and aperitifs bar after 5pm.
