Murray Edwards College was looking absolutely splendid, with a magnificent display of flowers at the entrance. The buildings and gardens are impressive, the service was excellent, and the various talks and lectures most interesting.

Pleasant, clean twin room - the second bed was a "z-bed" and comfortable (though would perhaps not be so great for large people). Free on-site secure parking was a big bonus. Friendly, helpful staff. College is a 15-20 minute stroll into central Cambridge.
