The staff I encountered, both at Porters' Lodge and in the dining hall, were excellent - friendly and helpful. The arrangements for entry to the college after 9pm were very straight-forward. The room was as I expected it to be, but was overwhelmingly hot and stuffy. Open windows did mitigate this somewhat, but resulted in a poor night's sleep with the road noise from outside. There was a long queue for breakfast due to the number of summer school students who were also staying at the college.

Efficient heating and hot water in room. Tea and coffee tray was replenished which I wasn't expecting. Breakfast wasn't served during my stay as students' term had finished. Perhaps the brochure could make that clear. Very convenient location. Beautiful gardens and buildings.

Enterence area dirty, No light in lift, toilet papers not replaced, inshort a regular werkly visit by management would eliminate such basic issues. It is an excellent place for peace and contempkation which was my priority, so I really was pleased during my stay. Thanks.

The staff, both at the Porters' Lodge and at breakfast, were so pleasant and helpful. I live in London and you hardly ever find people behaving like that in London!

Good stay, room very hot and lots of noise from the pub across the road but nothing the college can do about that. Lovely Porter checked us in and we’d stay again

NickieD

Lovely location but very noisy. Wasn't aware that I would be kept awake until after midnight due to loud voices at pub nearby.
