AccorHotels’ new ibis Cambridge opens for business
AccorHotels has officially opened its new ibis Cambridge hotel.
Situated in the prime location of Station Square directly opposite the train station, it is the first AccorHotels property in Cambridge and the largest hotel in the city and its surrounding areas.
The hotel’s opening is creating around 20 new jobs, ranging from managerial roles to receptionists, bar and restaurant staff.
The hotel comprises 231 Sweet Room by ibis, the brand’s new room concept. ibis Cambridge also holds a new _SPACE by ibis meeting rooms, a unique meeting room concept that addresses the growing requirement for flexible working spaces, and the new “Chill #2” coffee shop.
Chill #2 is the main check-in area of the hotel, where guests can check in without the hassle of reception desks. The café-bar sources local produce, which will be prepared fresh onsite, and stock artisan coffee.
Bookings are taking place now and as an opening offer loyalty club members will receive x4 Le Club AccorHotels points with every confirmation. ibis Cambridge is located in Station Square, next to the train station with fast trains to and from London as well as easy access to Birmingham and Scotland.
Cambridge welcomed 430,000 visitors from overseas alone last year, collectively staying over 3.5 million nights and spending £350 million. This made it the 10thmost visited UK town by overseas visitors.
