it looks oddly unfinished. Very odd feel to the place - but I love it! If one was honest, it's one of the uglier Oxbridge colleges - only Sidney Sussex here - or Balliol College at Oxford - are more plain. But that's what's great...More

We stayed here last year for B&B and were extremely impressed. It's a fantastically convenient location ( we were in Cambridge for the Alumni Festival so needed to walk all around Cambridge). The breakfast was very good quality. We'd certainly recommend staying here.

St Catherine's is a pleasant college, which supposedly has closed access. You may visit the chapel however for services. Ignoring the sign I proceeded to the chapel on the excuse of enquiring the service times. The chapel is interesting and well worth a visit. The...More
