There are many attributes that make Tamburlaine a stand-out stay. Here are just a few of the things you’ll no doubt notice during your stay at Cambridge’s most exciting new hotel.
Communal spaces designed by the Bryan O’Sullivan studio
On entering Tamburlaine, you’ll be struck by the dramatic double height lobby area complete with a staircase leading to a well-stocked library. Not only that, there are also five distinctive conference rooms which can double up as reception rooms for events. None of this would have been possible without the meticulous designs by the acclaimed Bryan O’Sullivan Studios, whose stamp is evident throughout the hotel’s public areas. Based in London’s Shoreditch, Bryan O’Sullivan Studios have previously designed Ibizan villas, luxury yachts and grand ski chalets, so The Tamburlaine joins an impressive portfolio.
Two distinct eating spaces
Bryan O’Sullivan’s gorgeous interior work also spans the two distinctive eating spaces. With an ornate garden room styled with colonial furnishings and more greenery in one room than most hotels have in their whole building, The Tamburlaine offers a unique ambience as well as great food. The glass-walled wine room and cocktail bar are staffed by expert mixologists. The Brasserie-styled restaurant, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, showcases the best of seasonal British produce.
Locally sourced produce
And that brings us nicely to the food. Tamburlaine’s talented chefs take great care to source much of their produce locally. From East Anglian Cheeseboards to Norfolk Crab, you can be sure you’re having an authentic taste of the region.
ICA approved mattresses
There is no better way to end (and begin) your day than in a bed you won’t want to leave. All mattresses at Tamburlaine are approved by the International Chiropractors Association, ensuring you’ll be well-rested in both body and mind. Each King Koil bed is reinforced with a unique spring system that provides the very best in back support and are handmade in Ireland.
Original art commissioned
Talented British Artist Jyll Bradley has been commissioned to produce a piece of public art which is displayed outside Tamburlaine. Bradley is known for her drawings and installations which incorporate the use of light as an important factor. She was nominated for the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Awards for Artists and the Becks Futures Awards and has undertaken residencies in Colombia and the Galapagos Islands among many others.
