Venue History: Hotel Felix takes it's name from Saint Felix of Burgundy who was Apostle to the East Angles (that later became known as East Anglia) and the first person to introduce Latin Christianity to Cambridgeshire during the 7th century. Saint Felix also founded a number of schools in the area including the University of Cambridge.
The sculpture of the dog at the hotel's entrance was found in a dilapidated state within the grounds of the hotel. It is believed to be a reproduction of a Molossian dog and thought to be connected in some way to a civic monument in Epirus in north western Greece. Similar sculptures around the world have been christened 'The Dog of Alcibiades' on account of its missing tail. It was the Athenian statesman Alcibiades who cut off the tail of this dog to give the Athenians something to make fun of other than them! A similar reproduction of the dog has also been the focus of a successful campaign by the British Museum. There were fears that the marble sculpture would be taken abroad by a private collector until the National Art Collectors Fund and the Heritage Lottery Fund raised the money needed to ensure the sculpture will stay in Britain, where it has been for 250 years.
Hotel Felix is sister to The Grange, a classical Regency townhouse hotel within the historic city of York a short walk from the magnificent Minster and central shopping areas. Officially classified AA 4 Star it has an award winning restaurants and executive en-suite bedrooms as well as meeting and private dining facilities.
