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 up because they didn't make enough; they made a replacement whcih arrived as everyone else was finishing and it was almost inedible. Breakfast wasn't much to write home about either. Conference venue is good - typical old Cambridge college, not quite Hogwarts but charming nonetheless.

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 the most bored expression and taking all food away in a great hurry 10 minutes before 9. And all for a ridiculous price of GPB78 per day!

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
