If you're planning a weekend break this Spring the Cambridge area now has two new hotel destinations to offer. The House Collection, a new boutique hotel group, have just unveiled their first hotel in the historic cathedral city of Ely and plans are well underway to open a second in Newmarket later in the Spring. Poets House in Ely opened its doors earlier this week. There are 21 elegant and individually styled rooms in sophisticated shades of grey, with freestanding copper baths and Bulgari toiletries. Here's a taste of what to expect.


Each hotel in the group's collection will be based on the small luxury house concept and will play to the strengths that make each property distinctive and special.

"A great deal of care is being invested into every aspect of the design of our new hotels," says David Toulson-Burke, Managing Director of The House Collection. "With the emphasis on style, comfort and attention to detail, we will offer our guests a very different experience to mainstream hotels,"

Rooms are currently available at an introductory rate of from £119 for bed and breakfast.
