The Christmas Season is always a lot of fun, yet it can also often feel like quite the marathon. So congratulations to all for making it through to the other side. And from everyone at the Varsity Hotel Cambridge we’d like to wish you all a Happy New Year.

What Next?

For many of us, simply making it through the intensity of your average December can feel like quite the achievement. There are so many parties, meals and events that it all gets a bit too much. Ironically leaving many of us just wishing for a little peace and quiet for a change.

Still, the whole season culminates in the New Year’s celebrations, often followed by a few days downtime where we just need to (figuratively) catch our breath. Relax for a while. Unwind and clear our minds. But after a week or so of that, we always start to think, “OK, what next?”

The answer isn’t always simple or easy, for one obvious reason: we’re still in the dead of winter. Many an outdoor pursuit we might wish to return to just isn’t quite an option right now. It’s just too cold outside, and the days are short. So though many of us hit this time of year and want to make changes to our lives, we often find that it’s not that simple. What to do?

Living Healthy Fortunately for all involved, we at the Varsity Hotel Cambridge are here to help you make those healthy changes to your life you’ve been putting off until the New Year. And, even better, we’re experts at helping you to make those changes stick.

First off, many people decide to make January a dry month. No alcohol. Which sounds great in theory, but in practice always seems tough to pull off. Which is where we come in. Both our River Bar and our Six Panoramic Restaurant offer a wide array of interesting non-alcoholic cocktails to sate your tastebuds. While many simple, elegant dishes on our menus provide healthy options after a few weeks of excess.

But truly it is our Glassworks Gym and Spa that is always the real star of a New Year. Perhaps you’re in need of some pampering. A lovely massage and a facial followed by a nice long soak in a jacuzzi. We’ve got you covered.

Or maybe your New Year’s Resolution is to get yourself back in shape. Our state-of-the-art gym will most certainly help you do that. But far more importantly, our personal trainers will help you stick with it. Putting together bespoke fitness plans for you to follow and plenty of encouragement to keep you going. Whatever your needs in this New Year, we at the Varsity Hotel Cambridge have got you covered.
