Welcome to Graduate Cambridge

Inspired by a city steeped in centuries of rich traditions, storied histories and academic life, we created Graduate Cambridge, a handcrafted hotel worthy of its namesake. From the moment you walk through our doors, you’ll be immersed in the local culture and charm that’s unique to Cambridge.

From the DNA double helix light above the front desk, an homage to Cambridge alumna Rosalind Franklin, to the lovingly restored, 100-year-old punting boats that adorn our lobby walls, even the smallest details pay tribute to what came before. And thoughtful nods to college architecture and crests make Graduate Cambridge feel like an extension of the nearby university.

Nestled along the banks of The River Cam and in the heart of city centre, this idyllic retreat is perfect for history lovers, locals and city-dwellers seeking a much-needed getaway.

Graduate Cambridge is more than just a place to stay, it’s part of the stories yet to be written. Start your next chapter now.
