“Surprisingly noisy night”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at Pembroke overnight on the summer and had a room in a lodge, number 18, at the back overlooking a lane which turns out to be a cut through from the city which is well used at night. We turned in after midnight but it seems that was very early as there were large raucous groups passing until 4. The room has no double glazing and was really very noisy . Ask to be in the main college if you're staying, I'm sure that would be better.

“Quality venue”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

I was invited to speak at this venue and while I was visiting on business, the function was enjoyable, with a good vegan meal and some fine wines on offer.

“a wonderful stay”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

We actually stayed here (which I highly recommend) during our stay. It is beautiful and quaint, and the reason I would go back to Oxford. Everything about it was warm and welcoming. I can't possibly say enough good about it.
