Hotel du Vin opens in Cambridge

23 Aug 2007 by Ciprian Hirlea

It has been a busy time for the MWB Group, owners of the Malmaison and Hotel du
Vin brands. July saw the opening of the latest Malmaison in Reading – the newly
renovated Great Western Rail hotel – and this week sister brand Hotel du Vin
opened its tenth hotel in Cambridge.

This latest boutique offering is located in
Cambridge city centre on Trumpington Street, and is housed in a renovated
university building, with 41 bedrooms and suites (some with private roof
terraces and garden areas) complete with Egyptian cotton sheets and monsoon
showers.

The hotel’s European bistro serves breakfast, lunch
and dinner and features Hotel du Vin’s inaugural open-style kitchen. Many of the
unusual architectural elements of the interior have been preserved, such as the
labyrinth of vaulted cellar rooms where guests can enjoy a glass of champagne at
the hotel’s bar. There is also a specialist wine tasting room, library and
private dining room.

The Cambridge hotel is the first of a handful of
Hotel du Vin properties slated for the coming months. Next up is York in
November, with 42 bedrooms, private dining facilities, bistro and bar, while
Newcastle, Edinburgh and Poole are all due to be added to the growing list in
2008.
