Basic clean modern student room. En suite shower but shared loos. Danger of forgetting to take key and getting locked out! It was very annoying after checking in to have to lug bags back to the car and drive a mile into town and out to get to the other side of the college site.

Free WiFi (though seemed to need setting up every day) but no TV. Unfortunately Churchill College is quite a long walk from the centre fo...
