Cambridge hotel joins DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio
Friday, 14 September 2018
The team at DoubleTree by Hilton Cambridge Belfry has celebrated joining one of Hilton’s 14 market-leading brands.
Ruth Poulton, Vice Chair Cambourne Parish Council, cut the ribbon to declare the hotel – formerly The Cambridge Belfry – officially open under its new name.
Ruth joined the hotel’s General Manager, Darren Townsend, for a tour of the hotel which has benefitted from a £1.8 million refurbishment as part of its rebrand.
This included redecoration of all bedrooms, with the installation of 49” wall mounted TVs, safes, fridges, complete bedding renewal and decoration – as well as a makeover for the hotel’s reception and bar, plus leisure changing areas.
The property, which is managed by the UK’s leading hotel management company, RBH, joins 48 other hotels within the DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio in the UK.
The 120 room DoubleTree by Hilton Cambridge Belfry offers guests a relaxing stay, as the hotel boasts a spa with seven treatment rooms, including Espa treatments, a nail salon and relaxation lounge. Guests can also replenish at the Leisure Club, which features an indoor pool, Jacuzzi spa, steam room and sauna.
Situated in Cambourne, the outskirts of the University town, DoubleTree by Hilton Cambridge Belfry provides easy access to a number of well-known attractions and activities, such as Duxford Air Museum, the University of Cambridge and punting on the River Cam. After a day exploring the town, guests can experience British cuisine with a twist at The Bridge restaurant or cosy up at the Bridge Bar with a few beverages and light snacks.
For meetings and events, the hotel offers eight meeting rooms with the largest room holding up to 180-seated delegates with natural daylight – perfect for any special occasion.
Darren Townsend, General Manager of DoubleTree by Hilton Cambridge Belfry said: “We’re pleased to officially call the hotel part of the DoubleTree by Hilton family. The brand is globally-recognised, and reiterates to guests the exceptional standards of service they should expect when they visit us here in Cambridge.
“It was wonderful to welcome Ruth Poulton here to officially open the hotel under its new name, and to have the opportunity to show her around the hotel and introduce the team. We look forward to welcoming guests, and offering the best possible guest experience.”
Ruth Poulton, Vice Chair Cambourne Parish Council, said: “I’m honoured to have been invited to officially mark the unveiling of the newly-named DoubleTree by Hilton Cambridge Belfry, and to have the chance to see the investment that has already gone into the property as a result of the rebrand.
“This hotel has been part of the town for a number of years and, now that it is part of the globally-recognised Hilton brand, I am confident it will continue to attract visitors from near and far to the town.”
