Pleased with a accommodation. Stayed with our toddler and she loved our room as it had plenty of cupboards (with pots and pans), drawers, sofa and a chair and a very spacious room arrangement. It was a bit chilly at night so we switched on the electric heater. Would definitely stay again.

I had a lovelys tay at Lucy Cavendish College. The ensuite room was big enough for one person and the bed was firm but comfortable. If you do not mind the doorm room-style and being located a short walk away from pubs and bars, Lucy Cavendish College provides great value for money.

The kindness and professionalism of the porters were exceptional. The breakfast was also very nice, and the place is wonderful. In future visits to Cambridge I will strongly consider the college as a place to stay (if there are rooms available).

Porters were so kind and friendly, I would book again just for them! A hotel would be much comfier and have greater facilities, but it was excellent value for money and means that Cambridge is right on your doorstep.
