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.

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!

Good student accommodatio let down by minor issues
Good basic student type rooms with good bathrooms and breakfast included, a quite long but pleasant walk through a pretty laneway from the town centre. There was a range of minor annoyances that need to be fixed. 1. There's a minuscule amenities kit provided with a sliver of soap, and a tiny shampoo and shower gel. This probably done in an effort to boost stars from 3 to 4, but the outcome is much much worse than if they'd simply left a proper bar of soap. I was there for five days. On the second cleaning day they removed everything, didn't replace with anything on that or any later day. I had nothing to wash hands with after the toilet. That's just yeuch. Eventually sorted myself out, but it shows a basic lack of understanding that you can't by providing a pretty tiny amenity pack on day 1, and have no soap for days 2 to 5. Same attitude carried over on other matters - disposable wrapped plastic glass was in room on check in (good). It was neither replaced nor washed. So I had only a scummy disposable plastic glass to come home to. Had to use cup to drink. 2. Breakfast is so 1970s. They pile up a mound of carb heavy fatty food on your plate with no thought to health. Must have been six eggs in the egg mound (two heaped serving spoons). Unhealthy and unthoughtful. Only Cafe on site has exactly one hot meal other than sandwiches - Pizza. And it's a mile walk to city. Unhealthy!!!! 3. Need a wall grip for shower. Unsafe
