The Cambridge Belfry is going back to its roots and relaunching as an individual hotel. The relaunch comes as it decouples from the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, however the hotel will stay part of the QHotels Group, a collection of 21 4-star hotels across the UK. The hotel will embrace and take inspiration from its unique location and the personality of the area, as well as the local community.
“Modern Cambridge has been built on centuries of refusing to accept cherished beliefs - of challenging convention. In our own modest way we hope to do the same. We want to get back to our roots – playing a bigger part in the community and focusing on our strengths of being a very individual hotel,” said General Manager David Rowley.
As part of the re-defining of the hotel it will offer some new and special experiences for locals and those able to travel to the Cambourne location. When government guidelines allow, guests can enjoy great offers that combine stays with a feel-good physical treatment, with a glass of complimentary prosecco to cool down and chill out. The popular Spa Day Package for two including robes, lunch and use of the facilities will be available at a 10% discount until May, as well as all spa treatments being offered at 20% less. For those guests fancying a spot of Afternoon Tea, the hotel’s signature afternoon tea can be enjoyed at 30% less seven days a week until the end of May too. Leisure bed and breakfast stayovers will offer 40% discount until the end of January, with stays able to be enjoyed until 23 December 2021! Guests can book getaways with confidence, with the hotel offering flexible rebooking or cancellation options on all stays.
Improvements to the hotel’s Leisure Club will be made throughout the year, with special joining offers available for locals in the near future. The award-winning Spa will be refreshed and more pampering treatments, rituals and beauty sessions with Elemis will continue to be on offer 7 days a week. Yoga on the lawn and Aqua Aerobics in the 12 metre pool will feature too.
“We are looking forward to working more closely with the community and welcoming their ideas in this new individual hotel chapter,” said Rowley, who will be inviting locals in for a coffee and a chat to listen and plan for the future.
The same great team remain with the hotel to welcome local and out of town guests back once restrictions are lifted. Dora, Guest Experience Supervisor continues to create memorable experiences for guests celebrating a special occasion, whilst Head Chef Artur ensures that all guests are treated to delicious daily meals served to a high standard.
Part of the reform of the hotel will also be a closer relationship with local suppliers. “We want to become ever-more a part of our community,” said Rowley. “If the last year has taught us anything it is that partnership is valued, and relationships matter more than profit margins. We will be working more closely with local suppliers and choosing them first, whenever possible, for any hotel partnership. We want to help local business through this crisis” he said.
“And our local community is going to be given another booster in this new ‘Back to Our Roots’ look. We will make a meeting room available every month, for free, for local businesses, charities, groups and networks to come in and use us as their new hub. We also want to encourage local groups to come in to chat about how we can help everyone – we are open to all ideas. Hopefully this will help local groups get back on their feet, stimulate business and generally have a positive, uplifting experience,” he said.
The hotel is part of the Q Hotels Group which consists of 21 outstanding upscale properties ranging from country houses, city locations, resort properties with amazing leisure, spa and sporting facilities including golf and tennis, to “away from it all” manor houses with expansive grounds on the edge of renowned beauty spots.
