I was in I12, from memory, though I can't swear to it. If I had a small criticism of the room, it would be that the showerhead was fixed. Otherwise, I have no complaints. And the coffee machine was broken on the Sunday morning -- that was a considerable disappointment!

Wonderful garden. Clean and quite rooms. Nice staff. Patient porters. I recommend this college as one of the best ones in Cambridge. I am looking to coming back next year.

I love staying at Selwyn. The one slight drawback is that breakfast only starts at 8am. I have to forgo it as I always need to be up and out by then for 8:30am meetings.

Lovely, no frills but comfortable, single room in newly refurbished quiet house just down the road from the main Selwyn site. Would book there again.

Wonderful stay, the most comfortable part of my journey so far. The room was larger and quieter than expected. Felt better than at home.
