Getting your accommodation right is always one of the trickiest parts when it comes to planning a lads’ weekend – you want to be in the heart of all the action, without having to spend a small fortune to stay there. That’s why we’ve picked our favourite six hotels across that city that cover all budgets, styles and location preferences, so you don’t have to do any of the hard graft yourself. With everything from high-class 4-star stays to cheap and cheerful 3-star digs, we promise there’s going to be something that’s ideal for you.
If the sound of those 4-star hotels is doing it for you, the DoubleTree by Hilton Cambridge City Centre has everything you could need for a high-roller weekend. Found right in the centre of the city, it’s just a 9-minute walk to the infamous Ballare nightclub, and surrounded by plenty of bars and restaurants, not to mention hosting their own private drinking and dining options on-site, to kick start your big night out. You’re also less than a 10-minute walk from the main shopping street, where you’ll find plenty of top brands just waiting for you to indulge in some well-deserved spending. If you’re looking to outdo every stag weekend you’ve ever been on, staying in the Hallmark Hotel Cambridge is a must. Just outside of the city centre, it has everything you could possibly need right under one roof, making sure your day – or night – kicks off the way it should. There’s a bar and restaurant, plus their very own golf course, swimming pool and spa so you can unwind in total luxury..
The Holiday Inn Express Cambridge is definitely a good shout for any group of lads looking to save a little on the budget without compromising too much on location. It’s also near to Cambridge International Airport, so for those of you who are flying in (don’t laugh – sometimes a flight is cheaper than the train) it’s the prime location for you to stay without worrying about sleeping in and missing your flight back again. If you don’t fancy staying that far outside of the city, Travelodge Cambridge Newmarket Road is ideally located for you and the lads. Just a 20-minute walk from the city centre, you’ll pass plenty of shops and bars on your way into town, so whether you’re heading in for a day sight-seeing in the city, or bar-crawling your way into town for a night out, you’ll not miss out on anything.
For a 3-star hotel that has everything you need to kick start your weekend, Travelodge Cambridge Central is ideal. Just 25-minutes’ walk from town, you’re surrounded by plenty of things to keep you and the lads busy before you head off for the day, with a cinema right across the road and some classic restaurants to grab a bite to eat, you’ll be well prepared for your day. There’s even a bar and restaurant on-site, too, so you’ll be well and truly spoilt for choice.
Since Cambridge is such a big city, our hotels are spread all across it to make sure everyone has plenty of choice when it comes to location. Depending on which location you decide on, it may be necessary to get a taxi into town, particularly if you’re staying at the Hallmark Hotel Cambridge which is about 45-minutes walk from the city centre. Don’t fret, though – taxis will have you in town in 20-minutes or less, so you don’t need to miss out on anything the city has to offer.
We’ve reserved room allocation on all of our hotels, making sure that you don’t miss out on whichever one you set your heart on. It’s always best to book in advance where possible to avoid disappointment, however one of our LNOF staff will double check to make sure your weekend doesn’t clash with anything.
This is your stag weekend we’re talking about, so we know it needs to run smoothly, so we’ve made sure that you and the lads are covered for everything, including any issues you may have with your accommodation. LNOF are 100% ABTA protected (Y6354) and a fully accredited travel company, so you can book with us with complete confidence knowing that you’re covered with all necessary legal protection. If you need any further information about ABTA and it how it might affect your Cambridge stag weekend, you can find it here.
