Where to Stay

Below you will find a listing for places to stay, ranging from first class hotels, guest houses to hostels, to suit all tastes and budgets.

The Tamburlaine Hotel is the Festival's official hotel partner and is located right next to Cambridge Train Station. With only a 10 min walk to the town centre, it's a great location for Festival events and for seeing Cambridge.


The Tamburlaine also has a bustling Bar and Restaurant that draws a crowd from early morning until the early hours. Menus are constantly changing but food is always simple, seasonal, locally sourced and prepared to the exacting standards of Alan Dann, their award-winning chef. They offer everything from Wood Pigeon to Gnocchi served with parmesan and pumpkin seed oil. 

This year we are delighted to announce a Dinner Jazz event with award winning vocalist and lyricist Georgia Mancio and her quartet and they will be performing at the Tamburlaine's stunning Garden Room on Friday Nov 15 - more details can be found here.
