   Welcome to Waterbeach Lodge


Waterbeach Lodge is the latest addition to the Scimitar Care Hotels group. It is a stunning, purpose-built Care Hotel situated on the A10 Ely Road, less than 6 miles from Cambridge City Centre. Waterbeach Lodge enjoys views over the countryside and is set in six acres of beautifully landscaped gardens.

The original site was established in 1818 and became a Convent for Nuns of the Carmelite Order in the early 1900's, remaining that way until the late 1970s'. Since then the property has had various uses but many of the original buildings were left derelict before Scimitar's acquisition in 2009, resulting in the demolition and rebuilding of the main structure, being the new Waterbeach Lodge as is now seen today.

No expense has been spared on the magnificent interior, affording to all who visit an air of a top-star Hotel throughout. The ground floor lounge has been designed to offer an area in which Residents can meet and converse, partake in daily activities or simply enjoy the views of the wildlife that frequent the extensive grounds in which the Care Hotel stands.

All bedroom suites are capacious; fusing contemporary comfort with timeless glamour and heritage associated with Scimitar's unique style. All rooms are complemented with direct-dial telephone and television facilities, alongside state-of-the-art adjustable orthopaedic beds and an emergency call system. Each room embodies full en-suite facilities and, due to the large floor plan of each suite, there are no restrictions when using wheelchairs or hoists.

All of Scimitar's Hotels are staffed on a 24-hour, 365-day-a-year basis. The fully trained and highly qualified carers provide personal care, assistance with dressing and will cater for any specific requirements that Residents may have. Suites are cleaned and attended to on a daily basis and there is a full in-house laundry and a mobile shop. A daily programme of entertainment is available for those wishing to partake.

Meals of choice are freshly prepared and served each day by the cook and catering staff and are nutritious and wholesome. Any dietary variation or personal request is attended to. There are no 'visiting hours' as Residents' guests and families are welcome at any time.

Waterbeach Lodge was recently rated by the Care Quality Commission, who are the UK's main independent regulator for all care services. Our rating is displayed below and you can click "See Report" to retrieve the details of the latest inspection.
