About the rooms

The rooms at The Cambrian are characterised by modern design accents and fresh, bright and contemporary architecture. The rooms were renovated between 2018 and 2020 in collaboration with Dutch designers Johan Bouman and Jeroen Wand. They impress with their clean lines, warm natural tones and Dutch craftsmanship.
