Located in the university town of Cambridge, Tamburlaine is a new 155-room luxury hotel from the Dublin-based O’Callaghan Group.

Situated close to the railway station, the property is a short stroll into the city itself and a stone’s throw from many of the top attractions in the town.

Hexagon tiles from the program range decorate the double height reception area

Designed by the talented team at Bryan O’Sullivan Studio, the hotel joyfully fuses traditional and modern design, which echoes the heritage of the town along with it’s emerging prominence as a vibrant metropolis.

Tamburlaine’s welcoming entrance has a dramatic double-height lobby with a dramatic feature staircase and overlooking library above.

The ground floor flows between four different food and drink areas, each with its own particular offering and all tied together with a sense of quality, provenance of local ingredients, attention to detail, and distinct design.

In the reception, visitors are met with a striking tiled floor design made up of white, red and black hexagon tiles from Solus Ceramics’ Program range.

The rich and dramatic colour palette perfectly complements the unique library style aesthetic of the area, whilst the dramatic pattern only adds to the intricate sophistication of the space.

A vibrant and exciting new hotel in the heart of Cambridge

In the modern deli, Steam, Solus Ceramics supplied vibrantly patterned floor tiles from their emerging Treasure range. The eclectic and contemporary artisan eatery features the bold Elpis tile, which is emblazoned with a chic blue and grey geometric print, brought to life in a rustic hand painted style.

The Garden Room, which is truly like a page from The Secret Garden, offers guests an al fresco ambiance in the comfort of the hotel, and features a traditional black and white flooring pattern from Solus Ceramics’ Victorian influenced Program 2 range.

Finally, if visitors take a visit to the botanical influenced bathrooms, they will be met with more inspirational tiling products from Solus Ceramics. 150x150mm tiles and various special pieces from the Diffusion range along with elegant mosaic floor tiles were used in both the male and female WCs.
