The aparthotel at Eddington is an exciting facility for visitors and the local community. It combines a 180 spacious apartments by Locke Living and 150 rooms by Hyatt Centric Hotel.
A hotel designed for living
Turing Locke takes its design cues from the avant-garde movements established in Cambridge. Its stylish apartments (including one and two bedroom apartments) all feature Locke’s signature fully fitted kitchen, living and dining space, ideal for guests staying a night or longer.
Hyatt Centric Cambridge has an understated luxury and art deco touch that comes together to create generous, well-designed spaces that offer the ultimate blend of home comfort and modern style infused with local charm.
The hybrid concept also offers a number of social spaces available for all visitors and the wider community to connect. An all-day restaurant, coffee shop, cocktail bar, seasonal rooftop bar, co-working spaces, gym, open landscaped courtyard, meeting and event space are all integral to the design by Stirling Prize-winning architects dRMM who worked with internationally recognised design studio AvroKO.
The design and experience typical of a contemporary lifestyle hotel makes it attractive to a wide range of travellers, from business to leisure, groups and events, as well as short, mid and long-stays.
Social Dining at its heart
Working with locally-renowned partners to create new food and drink destinations – Dutch and Brew – the development will supports Eddington as the new hotspot in Cambridge, creating exciting opportunities for existing local businesses.
Dutch is the second site for the owners of 196 Cocktail Bar on Mill Road. Drinks offerings range from expertly sourced spirits, wines and beers, alongside an extensive cocktail menu of classic favourites, inventive twists and new creations, taking you on a taste journey across the globe.
Visitors to Dutch can enjoy hot and cold small plates with an emphasis on locally sourced products. Platters of British cheeses and cured meats will sit alongside salads, tortillas and nibbles.
Not your standard coffee shop. Brew serve premium quality, expertly crafted coffee that’s roasted right on the premises using various brewing methods to bring out a range of unique flavours that will entice your taste buds. Their menu includes an extensive list of speciality coffee and their nitro cold brew on tap. Artisan pastries, cakes, and locally sourced food and beverages are also on offer, making for a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Cultural programme inspired by local
A locally led cultural programme will evolve and encompass Cambridge knowledge and expertise with regular talks, workshops, exercise classes and more, which will be available to attend to locals and visitors.
Turing Locke also features a permanent art installation by local artist, Fiona Curran. The piece ‘Bright Shadows Point’ emboldens the courtyard and is inspired dually by century-old artefacts excavated from former settlements in Eddington – including Roman, Medieval and Anglo Saxon using research from Cambridge Archaeological Unit, and also by photography of the solar eclipse taken by astronomer, mathematician, and physicist Sir Arthur Eddington.
