Advantages: Great Locations
The De Vere hotel chains in my opinion offer something a bit special for a hotel stay and are great for a weekend away. They have 12 different hotels to choose from, spread around the country. The most beautiful in my opinion is Cameron House on the shores of Loch Lomond. The others also feature amazing building and several are in stately type homes. A lot of them feature golf packages/wedding packages so there is really something for everyone.
My husband and I stayed at the De Vere hotel in Cambridge a year or so ago, he took me for a surprise weekend away and I was very impressed with the hotel.
He firstly choose De vere's as they are known to have very nice, luxury hotels at quite good prices in good locations.
This location was fantastic. At first though I must admit I was a bit disappointed because looking at the photograph of the hotel you expect it to have a lovely huge green area in front of it but that is actually the park next to the hotel. The hotel is situated right in the town and not really surrounded by green area at all as the photo suggests but never mind, it did not put us off. The location like I said was in town, just a short walk down the road (Regent Street) to all the shops and restaurants so after a great day sightseeing etc it did not take long to get back "home".
The rooms there start from about £110 but you can pay for for the suites with the four poster beds which are lovely. You do have to pay to park as well which is quite annoying, it is £14 a day which is quite expensive but is what you get with hotels in the city.
Cambridge itself has lots of great things to do, the shops are good and then of course there is all the old university buildings to look around, take a trip down the river cam etc.
They have a ncie restaurant called 17 which is adjacent to the hotel and there is also a bar as well with excellent big couches that you can slop on and a lovely fire.
The rooms were fairly big, all on suite and room service went til quite late. The decor inside is quite oldy world, with lots of dark wood but very nicely maintained. The staff were very friendly and offered lots of advice on what to do during the day. I would definitely recommend taking a walk to the Botantical Gardens which are close to the hotel too.
