Novotel, one of Accor’s midscale brands,has appointed Cyril Bulvestre as General Manager for the new Novotel Cambridge North hotel.
Bulvestre will be welcoming guests to the 217-bed hotel from its official opening date on 17 May.
Bulvestre joined Accor in 2008 and was appointed his first GM position at Adagio La Defense in Paris before progressing to the Novotel Chateau de Maffliers. In 2016, he moved to the UK where he fulfilled his role as General Manager at Novotel Liverpool Centre until this year.
In more recent years, Bulvestre has expanded his personal learning by way of enrolling on further education and preparing an MBA Scale-up programme at the Liverpool John Moores University.
Bulvestre said, “I’m excited to begin this new venture at Novotel Cambridge North and to open our doors for the first time on 17th May when indoor hospitality in England officially restarts.
'It is such a key time for the hospitality industry, so as travel returns, we are delighted to welcome guests to this stunning new hotel in Cambridge which is perfectly positioned for both work and leisure guests.
'The hotel is a fantastic example of the brilliant design and service Novotel offers its guests, and after months of lockdown a stay with us will be time well spent. Our guests’ safety and wellbeing is our key priority, so we will be operating elevated hygiene and prevention measures in line with Accor’s Allsafe label certification.”
On opening, Novotel Cambridge North will offer world-class conference facilities and comprehensive fitness amenities. The hotel’s restaurant and bar will cater to every taste with cocktails, full dinner service, a-la-carte or Grab N Go menus.
The property’s large swimming pool, Jacuzzi and gym offer any busy professional the chance to relax after a tiring day; or offers families the opportunity to unwind during their summer staycation.
The property caters to all budgets and individual requirements, offering Superior Family Rooms, Accessibility Rooms, Junior Suites, and Executive Suites. The hotel is conveniently situated next to Cambridge North Train Station, Cambridge city centre and heritage sites, as well as being less than an hour away from London.
