Bathroom and room are basic but great college location. Loved the tea, biscuits and bath products
Miss Camilla M

We were looking for an affordable accommodation for a girls weekend away when we came across University Rooms. The cost seemed reasonable and at the same time you get the chance to stay in a wonderful historical building. On arrival the Porters were very welcoming, sharing their knowledge of the University and surrounding area. Nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was very clean, beds were comfortable with toiletries and tea making facilities of a good standard. The booking included breakfast, which was of a good standard with plenty of variety and eaten in great surroundings. There is so much to see and do that a return trip is definitely on the cards and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying at Queens College to friends and family.
