Probably as expected from pictures, except for strong unspecific smell. Might be something rotting/died combined with detergent?More

Really disappointed with lunch this year. The food was bland and uninteresting and I really could not be bothered to eat either starter or main course. The cheese plate is simply awful, given the amazing British cheeses one can so easily get these days.

Great facilities. We had a conference, with over 300 delegates it was roomy and met the needs for all attending.

Robinson is not one of Cambridge's ancient university colleges, having been built in the 1970s. It's on the far side of the river, about 15 minutes' walk from the historic centre of the city. For me, that made it perfect -- away from the roving...More

Few tourists make it to Robinson College, on the periphery of central Cambridge, but it has its attractions. The architecture is modern, and heavily based on red brick (with a tinge of blue). It's designed along the lines of a mediaeval castle, so you enter...More

Let's face it the people who stay in Robinson's College are either tourists or, like myself, attending a meeting or conference. My venue was elsewhere but walkable from Robinson. The staff are incredibly polite, courteous and efficient and the building and gardens are very pleasant....More
