Customer feedback

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning. Our room was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The grounds of the college are incredibly beautiful and a joy to walk around. We found the porters and the Dining Hall staff exceedingly friendly and helpful. Cambridge was looking at its very best in the glorious weather and it was wonderful to be able to stay in such quiet and beautiful surroundings and yet be right in the heart of the city." Mrs Sue R
  • "Me and a friend's stay at the university was exceptional. The room and breakfast was to a very high standard. The view from the window was very pretty, as were the grounds within the university. Finally, all of your staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. " Miss Yasmin H
