If luxury isn’t comfortable, it isn’t luxury.
Our name hails from the pages of 16th century dramatist and Cambridge alumni Christopher Marlowe’s most famous work Tamburlaine the Great.
Inspired by Marlowe’s prose, our look is polished and contemporary; marrying subtle accents of Persian influence with a dash of Cambridge’s old school charm.
The grand entrance sets the tone with soaring double-height ceilings, a sweeping spiral staircase, and cascading chandeliers. Oversized antique silk rugs and inviting leather armchairs encourage guests to relax by the open fire. Staff members sport a menagerie of stylish velvet, traditional plaid, and tasteful college stripes.
Guest rooms and suites are elegant and exceptionally spacious, boasting handmade beds laden with luxurious linens and bathrooms stocked with exclusive toiletries. Bespoke furniture and collected retro pieces add character and personality. Shared spaces span two floors and each one flows into the next while maintaining an air of individuality.
The Library overlooks the lobby, and dramatic lighting above the Bar opens up into the first floor. While seated in the Restaurant, guests can observe the busy kitchen through a sheer wall of plate glass.
Every element of the Tamburlaine experience has been curated and crafted to embody an atmosphere of comfortable, understated luxury.
