Stayed for the Nnedpro summer school of nutrition. Nice rooms, wifi works (in most places), spacious conference rooms (with yummy biscuits) and pretty good food in the large dining hall. Very helpful staff.

The College is worth a visit if happen to be at the West-side of Cambridge. The people are friendly, the gardens are pretty (especially around the library area), and the bar drinks are cheap! :)
