I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all of our guests returning to University Arms.

We are delighted to have you with us, and believe we have put exceptional measures in place to offer you, and our team, safety and security during your stay, while not compromising on hospitality.

For those of you still undecided, Cambridge is the perfect autumnal spot to escape to, with green spaces, the glorious river Cam, bike rides to Grantchester, or curling up in our cosy library with a good book and an even better drink. 

Most of our reservations are flexible, meaning you can book with confidence and know that should the worse happen and you cannot come to Cambridge, you will not be held accountable to pay for the room. All we ask is for 24 hours notice before your arrival day. Please do refer to the terms and conditions of your reservations, where we will clearly indicate, the cancellation policy.

I look forward to meeting you all.

Ian James, General Manager
