An historic former police and fire station in Cambridge is set to be converted into a 57 all-suite boutique hotel following approval from Cambridge City Council.

Rogue City Hotels will operate the hotel and it will be named: The Hobson. 

The building is the Grade II-listed Hobson House in St Andrew's Street and named after the building’s former owner Thomas Hobson, a notable 16th-century carrier, stablekeeper and philanthropist.

The present Hobson House dates from the turn of the twentieth century and has been variously a workhouse, a gaol for the university, a police and fire station and latterly council offices.

Conversion to a hotel will not involve a great change to the fabric of the building although the original stained glass windows, ceiling plasterwork and wood panelling will be renovated throughout the property. The covered courtyard in Hobson House will be enclosed to form a tearoom and an atrium-style restaurant.

Rogue City Hotels also operate the five-star Dunalastair Hotel Suites on the edge of Loch Rannoch near Pitlochry in Scotland.

An anticipated opening date for The Hobson awaits publication.
