Take a Punt on a Cambridge Staycation

The Four Legged Foodies Stay at The Hyatt Centric Cambridge

We heard that the city of Cambridge loves Four Legged friends so we thought we would check it out for ourselves.

Cambridge can be reached by train from London Kings Cross in under 1 hour (visit Thameslink for details and timetables) and by car in around 2 hours. Making the University city a great place for a weekend away.

We stayed at the Hyatt Centric which is a new hotel, located in the Eddington area of the city.

We were greeted by resident Dachshund Basil who spends most of his days on reception and he recommended some places we should try. We were then shown to our very comfortable room where we had bowls and blankets to use during our stay.

The room was very spacious with a sofa and table and a large window from which we could shout out to any fellow doggies passing by. It's always important to let people know you're in town!

The two things the humans require of a hotel room are a huge bed and a strong, hot shower. We are pleased to report these boxes were ticked.

The hotel has a large outdoor toilet area in the form of a landscaped garden which is partly lawned and there are plenty of bins nearby.

The area around the hotel is very quiet as it is situated on an out of town development. The park and ride bus into Cambridge is a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

Now let's get to the most important part - the FOOD!

We dogs are welcome in the hotel's 2 restaurants and coffee bar. There is also a roof terrace which opens April to September.

We had breakfast and dinner in KOTA which is a bright and spacious dining area with plenty of room for Four Legged guests.

The humans were very happy with their food which is based on the Finnish concept of grill style cooking. They were particularly impressed with the cocktails on offer.

After filling up our bellies with some extra sausages the humans ordered, we headed into the city centre to do some exploring.

Cambridge is a bustling city with tourists visiting from all over the world to see its beautiful architecture and discover the history of the University.

The humans need regular refreshments so we popped into The Swoop for coffee to keep them going until lunchtime.

Follow Dog Friendly Cambridge where Matilda the Dachshund has lots of dog friendly suggestions for you.

We liked the look of Matilda's suggestion of Scott's All Day for lunch which is a 20 minute walk from the city centre but well worth it.

The staff are very welcoming to all four legged foodies and the humans loved the buzzy, social feel of this neighbourhood restaurant.

You won't hear us complaining when the pizzas are bigger than our heads!

We highly recommend a trip to Cambridge as there is lots to see and do. We heard that dogs can even have a go at punting but we ran out of time to try for ourselves.
