Some may still be wary about going away for a weekend – and that’s understandable in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic. But, with UK staycations on the rise this summer, Cambridge’s University Arms – which is listed among Time Magazine top 100 places to visit in the world – has everything in place to ensure guests feel safe and welcome.

Greeted by concierge and reception staff wearing face visors, it’s immediately clear that the entire team – who are extremely friendly and helpful – is fully equipped and therefore visitors are well protected. As well as regular cleaning throughout the entire hotel (including 1,000 litres of a spray that kills the virus within four minutes), sanitiser stations outside lifts and at doorways, my partner and I were impressed to find ‘sanitising welcome packs’ on the bed with face masks, gloves and wipes inside them.
