We stumbled upon this accomodation by chance on a lower ranked web page. £95 per night per night for a superior double ensuite room in the students accomodation of Christs College (during their summer break).
The room itself was very spacious, with very large bathroom. The shower was rather cramped, but, hey, this is student accomodation! The mattress was as comfortable as I have slept on since my wedding night 22 years ago.
The ensuite backed onto the shopping comlex, but our bedroom, with the bathroom door shut, was very quiet indeed.
The view from the bedroom window across the lawned court was what it was all about, and to those of us not lucky enough to be a Cambridge alumnus, it was a great opportunity to feel part of this wonderful building and establisment.
Breakfast was included in the (very historic) students cafeteria on refectory style tables and benches. Not to some peoples taste, but we found it a great experience. The food served was excellent, with especially tasty local sausages, and as much to eat as you wished.
The porters were extremely pleasant and helpful. All our requests were met with a professional and knowledgeable response, with humour and wit to boot!. Nothing was too much trouble.
All in all a great experience that I would highly recommend. Not everybody's cup of tea I'm sure, but for us it made it an unforgettable weekend.
