My trip to Cambridge was fantastic. My room was beautiful, so clean and comfortable, I even had a balcony. Facilities were great, gorgeous shower. I used the student kitchen which was spotless. The porters were very helpful and booking was easy. I would definitely stay there again.

SaraA

The porters were very friendly and helpful with lots of good advice on Cambridge. The accommodation was lovely and clean, well appointed with everything we needed. Great location for exploring Cambridge. Extra bonus being safe and secure parking.

JohnG

Clean, smart, slightly minimalist, air conditioned, modern room with good facilities. Very comfortable bed. Excellent shower. Friendly staff. Peaceful College grounds. Great location in the heart of Cambridge. Very good value for money.

MichaelS

We were delighted. Constructive points The cistern has a constant running leek costing you money no problem to us. You should provide coasters to protect your surfaces from hot drinks.

DavidP

Excellent overall with particular credit going to the Porters who were highly professional, helpful, polite and informative as to local facilities.

JonathanG

The room is lovely, very well maintained and spotless. Porters were very helpful and friendly. Enjoyed staying in calm and relaxed accommodation.

AnitaD

The rooms were clean and comfortable for our entire party. For two people per room, the beds were a little cozy (e.g. small), but acceptable.

KevinW

The cleaning staff in particular were amazing. Considerate, thoughtful, helpful in every way.

Anon

Great location. Just disappointed to be work up at 7am by the windows being cleaned.
