A romantic and tranquil stay at Hotel Felix, Cambridge

Looking forward to a weekend of relaxation and exploring we booked into Hotel Felix, a luxury boutique hotel just on the outskirts of Cambridge. Work had been particularly busy in the weeks before and we couldn't wait to check in, relax and enjoy all that the hotel had to offer:
  

Hotel Felix
Keen to stay somewhere modern and luxurious it was the impressive Victorian architecture and modern contemporary decor which first caught my eye and I'm glad to say that Hotel Felix looked just as nice in person. As soon as we walked in it felt cosy and stylish with it's rich colour scheme, soft fabric furnishings and beautiful floral decorations.


There are a few lounge areas and hidden alcoves and had we not wanted to explore more of Cambridge I could have easily whiled away a whole day relaxing in the hotel and treating myself to their indulgent afternoon tea. 


The hotel is also surrounded by pretty greenery. Sadly it was too cold for us to really enjoy during our staycation but I think it would have been lovely to wander around in the summer and to dine outside on the terrace. The only downside is that it was perhaps a little further then we could have liked from Cambridge town center (we were hoping for somewhere really close so we could pop in and out during the day), but the half an hour walk was easily manageable and we were happy to compromise for the amenities and luxury of the hotel.

Our hotel room

After our long journey it was so nice to just check in and relax before getting ready for dinner. Our king size room was spacious and modern with stylish dark wooden furniture and a much welcomed armchair and footstool to relax on. I don't know what it is about hotel beds but they are always so comfy and we both slept so well the entire weekend. As a blogger I was glad to see that there was free wifi throughout the hotel and I loved the little extra touches such as the freshly baked shortbread biscuits and The White Company toiletries.


The bathroom is absolutely gorgeous too although my favourite feature though had to be the heated floor. As someone who is always cold it was amazing to come back after a long day and it certainly made getting up out of bed a lot easier in the morning.

Hotel Felix Graffiti Restaurant

We'd booked in for dinner at Graffiti the onsite restaurant on the night of our arrival. As an award winning restaurant serving modern European cuisine we were both impressed with the quality and choice available. The menu changes seasonally depending on the ingredients available, but if you can I'd highly recommend the beef tartare which was so fresh and melt in your mouth. I also really enjoyed my seabass risotto which was perfectly cooked with the fish flakey and the rice having just the right amount of bite and creaminess.


Like the rest of Hotel Felix the restaurant is beautiful and I loved the warm romantic atmosphere. My only complaint was that service could sometimes be a little slow although they seemed short on staff so perhaps it was just our particular weekend.


Breakfast is also served at Graffiti restaurant where there's a good selection of fruit, pastries and cereals available to help yourself to as well as a small hot food menu which can be ordered a-la-carte. I can never resist a full English, especially when on holiday and combined with the hot tea was a perfect start for a day of exploring in Cambridge.

Overall we both really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Felix. With it's luxurious modern facilities, delicious food and tranquil surroundings it was the ideal weekend getaway and we both left Cambridge feeling much more refreshed and relaxed after our little staycation.
