Pembroke is one of Oxford's hidden gems. The idea of student accommodation doesn't appeal (even if it is Oxford) but the college itself is really pretty and quiet with lovely old buildings and quads and a gorgeous old chapel chapel and hall. Definitely worth a...More

I stayed for 2 nights at Pembroke. The room was small not particularly clean and up several flights of stairs. But the setting is simply wonderful. Dinner in the Hall magnificent.

The College is lovely and well-sited opposite Christchurch just away from the centre. very limited parking is a bonusbut must be booked in advance. Brerakfast is better now that it is outsourced to a nearby cafe. Downside is that rooms can be at the top...More

This may not be one of the biggest colleges in Oxford but it is one of the most attractive in my opinion. It has lovely little quads with smart lawns and pretty flowers and a charm all of its own. The dining hall is a...More
