Meeting Room Reviews

Michaelhouse has two meeting rooms and the Chapel, perfect for discussions, seminars, interviews, away-days, classes, workshops, and lots more. Available to hire by the hour, half- or full-day, with catering available from the Michaelhouse Cafe.

Some recent reviews of our meeting rooms:

Thanks so much – we really enjoyed Michaelhouse, the space was absolutely perfect, and all of the food was delicious! Booking was very quick and efficient – Rosemary had a good recommendation to suit our needs for the afternoon, and provided all of the information clearly. The venue was lovely, and we really enjoyed it. Once we had found the room it was clean and spacious and exactly suited what we needed. It was quite warm upstairs that day, but there was a fan provided which meant we didn’t get too hot. All of the food from the cafe was delicious. People particularly enjoyed the stout cake. I would definitely recommend – I was only visiting Cambridge for the weekend, so I would recommend Michaelhouse to other people planning a trip or event in Cambridge. (Hen party craft afternoon, June 2019)

On behalf of the team and participants I wanted to thank you all for Wednesday. The venue was excellent, the food was delicious and our private dining in the chapel was divine (pun intended). You have all been so helpful and accommodating when our plans changed or we weren’t quite sure what we wanted. (Full day conference with lunch, June 2019)

Everyone was very helpful and the booking process was easy. Certainly you are very competitive and we were very grateful to be able to use your room at such short notice! Friendly support – we will definitely book again! (Peer support group, May 2019)

Thank you so much for hosting the event for us on Tuesday – the evaluations all score the venue really highly, and it worked really well. (Public meeting with drinks and snacks, March 2019)

The room was lovely, the overseas visitors were very impressed with how historical it was. The food and drink was delicious and well presented with prompt and polite service. Very good value for money. Beautiful venue and very nice service- not in the least corporate, yet very professional. (Meeting with sandwich lunch, December 2018)

Quick, clear, & easy to book and pay. Good value for money. Great location and atmosphere. (Film screening, December 2018)

Beautiful venue in the centre of town at a reasonable price. Very clear information and superb help from the Centre Manager to make sure booking was smooth. (Business meeting, October 2018)

The booking process was all very quick, clear and positive. Great to have the opportunity to visit the venue and meet with the Venue and Catering Managers before to discuss details. The atmosphere was lovely and the venue was warm and clean. Delegates really enjoyed the food. The best thing was the friendly and helpful staff, particularly the Venue Manager. Overall the event went really well. (Conference with lunch, October 2018).

Extremely quick and easy booking process: called up and all booked that day – this was a last minute booking and the team were very accommodating. The venue was perfect for our needs. Very good value for money and the staff team were so helpful. (Business meeting, October 2018)

The venue is lovely and peaceful. The room was the perfect size for our event. It’s just a lovely peaceful but central location for an event, we were happy with everything. The website was very easy to use and it was nice that lots of the information was available online so I could easily compare it to other venues we had considered. Very prompt dealing with my queries and several questions I had before finalising arrangements. Thank you for your patience. Everyone who attended enjoyed the food immensely. The portion were of a good size and great value for money. We had a very enjoyable day and will recommend you to our colleagues in case they are considering a similar event. (Business meeting, August 2018)

The venue was great. We had hot drinks provided and ate in the Michaelhouse Cafe. Everyone enjoyed the food & drink which was well presented. Very quick & clear making the booking, very responsive to enquiries and requests. (meeting, July 2018)

The room is lovely. Well presented and good value. (Educational group, July 2018)

For this particular booking, it was very last minute from our side and I found it very easy to get in touch and make the necessary arrangements. We had everything we needed and Rosemary was on hand to meet me and ensure everything was as required. We all had tea and cake (a good selection!) and later had lunch in the café. All of the food was scrumptious and the GF brownie was a hit with our coeliac colleague. We love the food at Michaelhouse! (Business meeting, June 2018)

Venue located right in the centre of Cambridge and was clean and comfortable. Communication with the staff was prompt and professional, and you were happy to accommodate our need to visit the venue beforehand. We’d be happy to book with you again and recommend you to others. (Public meeting, June 2018)

It was a nice, quiet place. Central and easy to access. It was a fair price for the size of the room and the length of our meeting. (Group discussions, May 2018)

Facility great as always – my delegates loved it. (Regular photography workshop, March 2018)

What a beautiful room! We loved the space – perfect for our meeting. And the coffee and lunch were wonderful. (Business meeting, January 2018)

Great combination of comfortable conference facilities and cafe, thank you for your hospitality. (University group, January 2018)
