The accommodation was clean and spacious and set in beautiful gardens. There was also the added benefit of an extensive women's art collection, a rarity indeed. It was also a short walk into Cambridge and for me had the added benefit of being minutes away from Kettles Yard one of the main reasons...


Very friendly and helpful porters. Room clean and comfortable. The only downside was the breakfast, as there wasn't much fresh fruit or choice of cereal (but that might have been because of the large number of summer school students staying).


It was a great stay - a note needs to be made with attention to detail around the bathroom cleaning - hairs from previous occupant left :( Overall, staff were wonderful and so helpful and friendly - thank you :)


The college is overall nice, however the bed is not very comfortable (can feel every spring in the mattress!) and check out time is early and they don't store suitcases, which created logistical challenges.


A very pleasant visit. Well equipped, comfortable and clean room, great assistance from the Porters Lodge and the breakfast offering was very good. Great location for the town centre.


Loved staying at Murray Edwards College - interesting building and artwork, beautiful garden and planting. All very efficient and convenient. Would definitely stay here again.


Excellent position for access to Cambridge. Room including bathroom facilities. Very good for amount payed. breakfast good and time span for taking it good


Everything one could ask for in the room and service, great proximity to town centre and parking onsite.
