Such a treat to be in a college right in the heart of Cambridge. My cousin said "Finally, I have got to university!!" and it really is the full student room experience - lovely. Everyone very friendly and helpful; we really enjoyed ourselves.

Fantastic value accommodation in the middle of Cambridge. Beautiful surroundings. The accommodation is basic but brilliant for value for what it is. They serve a good breakfast and you’re in the heart of Cambridge.
