“Great Conference Location”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Stayed for two nights as part of a training course. It is a great venue in the centre of Oxford and absolutely dripping in history. The rooms we stayed in were en suite and comfortably furnished. The breakfasts were good but other meals were not so good. With strange combinations for lunch including sweet and sour with noodles. Rather reminded me of the fish fingers on toast served at the halls I stayed in at Newcastle university. The staff were fantastic.

“Choral Evensong”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

We were visiting Oxford for my birthday with my daughter who lives nearby.
I am a huge fan of Choral evensong and we were planning which place of the many places in Oxford to visit to hear it.
We walked past and saw that night it was theme'd as "Nasty Psalms" we were intruiged so just had to return at 1815 to listen.
The chapel is beautiful and feels very welcoming.
The chaplain was very welcoming and spent time chatting to us before the service.
He presented a very thoughtful and interesting evensong.
The choir was simply magnificent and well worth the trip!
ps special mention to the gentlemen in the entrance "lodge" who were lovely and also very helpful too.
A really good experience!

“Interesting architecture”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

At least this College was open on our day trip - we went to 7 in all on a Saturday and they were all closed for weddings and private functions.

At 2 pounds fifty entrance it is a bit steep for seniors but nevertheless you can wander round unhindered and the interiors of the buildings are awe inspiring.

“You can study here as well”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Wandering around Oxford on an 'Open Day' wanting to visit as many colleges as we could, but only manage three. Queen's must rate as one of the most interesting colleges. Secluded and quiet allowing the residents perfect conditions for study, even though on the High. The furniture and fittings are too intricate to describe. Avisit if you can is a must.

“The Queen's on the High”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

The Queen's College was the second I visited on coming to Oxford - my own being the first - Queens is set on the iconic High, one of the most beautiful high streets in England. But, it's a little spoiled by the location of so many bus stops outside the elegant frontage.
