Staying at St Catherines is a pleasure in itself and is a perfect accompaniment to your conference experience. We offer guests an ideal environment in which to relax and recharge, allowing them to make the most of their time with us.


Our light and airy study bedrooms help to ensure a great night's sleep. Their large windows overlook the green of lawns, trees and open countryside, blurring the boundary between inside and outside. We can accommodate over 350 delegates in total and rooms are serviced daily.

250 of our rooms have en-suite facilities and wireless internet access is offered across the College (so you need never be out of touch with the world). We provide tea and coffee-making facilities, linen, towels and toiletries. Hair dryers, ethernet cables and adaptors can be hired/purchased from our Lodge.

Our Lodge is manned 24/7 and is your first port of call for all queries or issues (tel. +44 (0)1865 271700).
