To Let


The building is located on St Andrews St in Cambridge City Centre close to the junctions of both Downing Street & Park Terrace and near to Emmanuel College and the Arts Picturehouse. The main Cambridge City Centre is adjacent with traders such as Pandora and John Lewis close by.


Hobson House is a Grade 11 listed building built in 1901 which was formerly used as a police station and offices. The building is currently being developed by Henley Homes into a 57 bedroom boutique hotel under the Rouge City Hotel Brand. The hotel will offer 5 star facilities including small kitchen area in each room.

The tea room will be accessed through the main hotel reception from St Andrews St.

This beautiful space will be operated preferably as a tea room or possibly restaurant. There is to be no other food and beverage offerings at the hotel so the chosen operator will be able to offer hotel guests breakfast, lunch and tea (and possibly dinner) including room service.

Some of the hotel bedrooms overlook this space so the agreed fit out will need to be sympathetic to the hotel guests privacy. Further details upon request.
