Hotel / B&B Options
We have collected together some further detail and links below to help, however please bear in mind that the information is not exhaustive and that we recommend that you read the information / liaise with providers to check that your chosen option suits your needs before making a booking. We have not visited premises and cannot make specific recommendations.
- It will be difficult to find a hotel room for under £100 in central Cambridge as it's very much a tourist market. With that warning, the hotels and guest houses closest to Christ's College are The Hilton on Downing Street, The University Arms Hotel on Regent Street, the Regent Hotel on Regent Street, Gonville Hotel on Gonville Place, and slightly further out The Royal Cambridge Hotel and Lensfield Hotel on Trumpington Road and the Graduate Hotel on Granta Place.
- For slightly cheaper rooms, you might like to try one of the budget hotels. Closest to Christ's are Travelodge Cambridge Newmarket Road and Premier Inn Cambridge City East on Newmarket Road, both only a 25 min walk from Christ's. Or, if you're coming by train, Travelodge Cambridge Central is not far from the station (though not central). IBIS is even closer, on station square next to the station entrance, but prices tend to be a bit higher there.
- The cheapest accommodation is likely to be at the YHA Cambridge Youth Hostel on Tenison Road (close to the railway station and a 20 min walk from Christ's) or in one of the guest houses such as A&B, Abbyfield Guest House, Fairways Guest House, Bridge Guest House, Parkview, and slightly further out Amber lodge or Shelford Lodge. If you are accompanied by a parent or guardian, you may also find rooms advertised on AirB&B that are of interest.
