Be aware that people arriving late at night will wake you up. Night porter needs to remind people to be quiet, instead at 12am several people talking at full volume including the night porter :-( Breakfast average. Bacon could be used to build houses with. Overall not bad, it's clean and service was good.

It's the most recent college in Cambridge, so don't expect ancient architecture or the comfort of a modern hotel. Yet if you are comfortable with a basic accommodation this college offers a modernist style architecture perfectly blended with a beautiful park.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The rooms have been freshly renovated, the view to the park (garden) in the morning is just gorgeous. You have to be aware that this is not a five star hotel but a college dorm used to accommodate conference attendees!
