If only my digs at university had been like this!

You can't fool anyone that you are a boffin if they see you going into a Travelodge, but stay in a Cambridge college, and everyone will think you're Stephen Hawking. But to get to... read more

You can't fool anyone that you are a boffin if they see you going into a Travelodge, but stay in a Cambridge college, and everyone will think you're Stephen Hawking. But to get to the review part- my room was BIG- comfortable single bed, two desks; one for thinking at, one for writing an amazing theory at. The room was... More

Very clean & comfortable guest rooms, set in the heart of the city. Everything was a couple of minutes walk away. Really large spacious room & bath. Good hot breakfast, free wifi and friendly staff. What more could you want?

One of the top three must see sites of Cambridge. Long hidden, and one of the most photographed attractions in Cambridge. Its Cafe and Bar open to public, 8-10:30 breakfast, then cafe till 4:30, bar starts at 6:30-10:30pm.

Scruffy, noisy room, just on top of the kitchen ventilation system running full blast 24/7. Cleaning mediocre and breakfast ditto, except for the really bad coffee. Some rooms are better but with shared bathroom. Fairly expensive, not very much value for money or historical feel.

Parking impossible, park and ride probably a good idea. Stayed here one night in one of the en suite rooms. Lovely buildings and good central location. Would definitely recommend an en suite if you are going out drinking, I wouldn't have fancied frequent trips down the corridor to a shared wc. That said, my dad had an ordinary room in... More

This is a charming and elegant college with exceptionally helpful porters. Definitely recommend it as part of the Cambridge tour or even as a place to stay when it's not university term time.

Booked to stay here for 2 nights whilst in Cambridge for a boys weekend. The location is great, so close to all the attractions and with the river just down the road. Breakfast was of a good standard and the rooms were fine. Would recommend going for the en-suite rooms though, we didn't and only had 1 toilet between 10... More

On arrival in mid-April we were directed from the porter's lodge to our room located on the ground floor of the accommodation building. Our twin room was small but clean, neat and tidy and with a radio, so not quite devoid of refinements, not that we needed it, rather peace and quiet which we got, excepting one night when a... More

Excellent. fab location, excellent assistance and info on arrival, wifi access. Generous breakfast (you don't eat in the posh sumptuous hall - but the more urban one next door). Slap bang in the middle of everything. College situ right next door to KIng's - Colleges could do with arranging car parking permits/assistance for lodging guests. Tourists can't ride all around...
