Tamburlaine hotel to open in Cambridge, Spring 2017

Tamburlaine hotel
The most exciting hotel opening to come to Cambridge in years, Tamburlaine will open in the vibrant, new city quarter close to the railway station as well as the city centre. Named after a play by Corpus Christi College fellow, Christopher Marlowe, the 155-room hotel will be the first UK opening from Dublin-based O’Callaghan Hotel Group. CEO, Paul O’Callaghan, says: ‘We are incredibly excited to be opening our first hotel in England next year and especially in such a thriving and vibrant city as Cambridge’.

With impressive views across the city, the spacious bedrooms will come in three categories: Freshman (Classic), Don (Executive) and Dean (Suites). Each has been individually designed with sumptuous King Koil beds from Ireland, dark wooden headboards, colourfully patterned soft furnishings and marble clad bathrooms.

Aside from the bedrooms, Tamburlaine will have a dramatic double-height lobby area with feature staircase and library above; there will also be a 150-cover brasserie-style restaurant, cocktail bar, glass walled wine room, terraces, ornate garden room and a deli/cafe. In addition, the hotel will have 5 conference rooms next to the library, which itself can be hired for drinks receptions and events, plus a gym. All communal areas in the hotel have been beautifully designed to have their own identity by Bryan O’Sullivan Studio; based in Shoreditch, O’Sullivan has worked at a wealth of leading companies including, Selldorf Architects in New York, David Collins Studio and Martin Brudnizski in London and Laplace&Co in Paris, before setting up his own studio in 2013.

The restaurant will serve an accessible menu of locally sourced, seasonal dishes in an informal environment with pendant light and relaxed leather banquettes; the horse-shoe shaped cocktail bar will offer a refined list of classic cocktails from their team of mixologists as well as small plates based on the restaurant menu. The garden room, filled with lush foliage and decorated in a Colonial style, will serve afternoon tea, Champagne and cocktails. In contrast, the deli will have a more modern feel with vibrantly tiled floors and neon lighting offering both take-away and eat-in options.

Freshly made salads will be piled high in patterned bowls with breakfast options, sandwiches and locally roasted coffee available for commuters to take away. In the evenings the space will transform into an affordable spot to pop in for a glass of wine and a cheese or charcuterie board.

Tamburlaine will open in the heart of Cambridge in Spring 2017. Rooms will be available from a starting price of £200 per night and further details on the hotel, bar, restaurant and deli will be released in the new year.
