Homerton college is the only college south to the rail. Although it is a bit away from the city center, its quite and unique draw my attention. As one of the youngest member of the University of Cambridge, its architecture is different from the old school but showed an approachable feeling. Only a few building spreading on big grass that...

Simple rooms but clean and functional. Good welcome at the porters lodge, they even lent me an umbrella. No phone reception in the room at all, stayed here before and had the same problem. if you need an early start note that breakfast is good but does not open until 7.30 am.

I have stayed at Homerton College on a number of occasions when working in Cambridge. The free on-site parking and nice clean bedrooms and en-suite bathroom plus tea/coffee. The grounds are beautiful and I have taken a book to the orchard or walked across to the cinema on the odd occasion. Friendly and ideal for a single female traveller.

we went to 'Taming of the shrew' in the grounds of Homerton College - an excellent performance albeit we were huddled in blankets on a picnic rug - well recommended

I had to stay in the Homerton College for the Conference and unfortunately we did not have the option to change it. Staff in the reception was neither helpful nor nice... Rooms were basic and definitely not well cleaned! I am not sure if they were cleaned at all. Bathroom was particularly bad and I would not take a shower... More

Attended a work conference at Homerton. Accommodation was fine - much like a Travel Lodge or similar without a TV (standard student rooms). The rooms were basic but beds comfy, bathroom of decent standard, rooms clean and quiet and the internet connection pretty quick. Main gripe was that I ordered a vegetarian meal at the evening event which didn't turn... More

I stayed there for a conference few weeks ago, but I wish I had booked accommodation elsewhere. The surroundings are quite charming, but do not make up for a slow internet, old dirty furniture and smelly non-functional bathroom. The breakfast was not particularly good (totally inedible underdone bacon) and the breakfast staff was not very nice either: serving food with... More

Stayed here for a work conference. Don't usually sleep well whilst away from home but this was a very comfortable stay. Lovely evening meal in the restaurant, attentive staff and a lovely setting. I didn't nook the conference so I can't vouch for costs but the rest of my colleagues also seemed to really enjoy it
