At Murray Edwards we are committed to an on-going programme of continuous improvement and hold regular feedback meetings with all the departments that make up our Events team.
We receive consistently excellent feedback from conference organisers, delegates and overnight guests and where we do receive any suggestions for improvement, we ensure these are tackled as soon as possible.
We hope by including some feedback below, you will get a sense of what it is like to hold an event at Murray Edwards College.

A huge thank you to all involved: the food was delicious, the service friendly and impeccably timed, and the venue itself perfectly set out as we had agreed in advance. Even the last minute changes we requested were carried out efficiently and with a smile!
It was wonderful to be able to show the College off in this way, and many of the delegates commented on how professional everything was, from the food to the gardens!
I take this opportunity also to thank the team for supporting the COSMIC Strategy Day so well – it was an excellent day and I received so many compliments about the organisation… .which of course was all down to Louise and her team! We will definitely be booking again in the future – it was very popular.
Many thanks for the hospitality of your team for our OSC Away Day. We had a productive day, and very much enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, especially whilst having lunch in the garden.
Thank you so much for all your help and support for our conference last week – we had a really great time, and your venue added a real smart edge to the whole affair. We have had many compliments for the food in particular!
Can you pass on our thanks for all your efforts for GDevCon last week to everyone involved, we think it all went very well and everyone on your side made it easy for us.
Thank you for your help with our booking on 13 August. I received very good reports from everyone about the evening particularly from our Chief Nurse whose leaving dinner it was and also our CEO who was very impressed with the food, service and setting. I’m so pleased it went well, it’s always a worry when you organise these events but aren’t there to see the outcome.
Many thanks indeed to you and the Events team from all of us at Cambridge Samaritans for making our evening such a good event for us. It all went very smoothly and we are tremendously appreciative of all the efforts made by Murray Edwards staff – yourselves in helping us get the organisation right, the catering staff for the delicious food and looking after us so well, the AV support and the porters who were extremely helpful with our requests and comings and goings. Thank you too for a bit of patience and flexibility when our timings went a little late!
Thank you for all of your team’s work in facilitating the most successful event in the series’ history.
(We would be very interested to know one thing you particularly liked or appreciated about your experience at Murray Edwards College.)
Friendliness of staff.
The ambiance was exceptional.
Attended a function and thought the catering was exceptional. Also, all staff were most pleasant, efficient, professional and helpful. Never having been to any University I shall now boast “I went to Cambridge”!
This is a wonderful venue for a meeting with excellent service and food. Everything is well organised and delegates will be very happy. Public areas of the College display a unique art collection.
I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of the staff that helped us have such a great evening for our Christmas party. The service was faultless and the food was so yummy!! Quite a few people arrived late for the meal and the supervisor handled it so professionally. If is a patient decides to be poorly we can never finish on time…so their patience was greatly appreciated. The DJ couldn’t believe how great the venue and had a great time in the Dome as well!!!
The facilities fully met our requirements both in terms of afternoon conference and evening dinner/dancing.
Thank you very much for hosting our Symposium at Buckingham House last week. The day went very well and I have received lots of excellent feedback, including about the very good food you provided. It was a perfect venue for our meeting and I really appreciated all your help in getting everything set up and running the day so smoothly.
Thank you and your colleagues so much for helping us organise such a wonderful weekend! Special thanks for the beautiful set up of the cake
stand and also to Molly (Catering Assistant) who helped us in the morning to coordinate with the catering team.
We just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you and your team did to organise The Sewing Weekender. The event was a great success and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. All the College staff were so helpful, especially the porters and tech team. The whole event went to plan perfectly!
I must say I was very impressed!! The venue was perfect and we got to use the outside space which was a bonus. The catering was excellent and I had some great feedback from our delegates. Please pass on our thanks for the rest of the team for helping our afternoon to run so smoothly.
The People were all very approachable, friendly and helpful. I wanted to thank all of the staff at Murray Edwards College for making our stay with you last week so enjoyable. Without exception, everyone we came into contact with was helpful, courteous and went out of their way to accommodate us. I have received many comments from delegates about the lovely venue, accommodation and food and how much they enjoyed learning in the College environment.
We had a lot of constraints with regards to our two events and the staff were all very keen and helpful to accommodate us in any way possible. All staff were very efficient and welcoming, which was also reflected in the feedback we got from the delegates on both days. We were very pleased with both events and everything ran smoothly.
Many thanks for all your help with yesterday’s event, please pass on my thanks to the team as well. In particular the help in the hunt for a long-armed stapler after our booklet mishap and being able to provide food to go with the reception at such short notice. Please also pass on my compliments to the chef for the delicious lunch.
Please pass on our thanks to all concerned in making our event on Saturday such a great success. All of your staff were excellent and all our guests enjoyed themselves immensely. A special thanks should go to the chef, we had several Indonesian guests who confirmed that the Rendang was really authentic. I was also told by those who stayed overnight that the breakfast was excellent!
The gardens are beautifully planted and maintained. Katie and the team were a pleasure to work with, she provided a very positive response to all requests without hesitation, as did the other events staff and Teri, the catering manager. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the party, the drinks flowed freely, the food was very good and the band went down very well, and all the children were happily entertained. The other staff were very well friendly and polite. Definitely, a very successful evening!
We have booked again for next year. The show of hands at the AGM in favour of re-booking was quite a big endorsement of how wonderful the conference facilities are! And I have to pass on formal thanks from the Chair to you, to the College, and to the staff.
In terms of catering requirements, there were many specific dietary requirements and requests for child-friendly options. These were all catered for brilliantly, with good suggestions for child-friendly meals. The feedback from the client was that the food was excellent. There were late requests for AV equipment, for a presentation, which were promptly accommodated and this certainly made the lunch a great success. The Murray Edwards staff were approachable, professional and flexible in their service both leading up to the event and on the day.
I’d like to say a very big thank you for all at MEC that helped to make our event a huge success. Please thank your Head Chef Joe and his team for the delicious lunches (the chocolate blondies were a hit!), the lovely catering team, your A.V. Technician Lorraine and the houseporters for all their help and hard work.
Fabulous stay! Wonderful accommodations! Very friendly and engaging staff!
Thank you for everyone’s help in making yesterday’s event such a success. We were really pleased with the facilities at Murray Edwards College and the venue was perfect for the numbers and for the type of event. Lunch was delicious and a big hit with the delegates, and all the staff were really helpful (special mention to Ben, your AV technician). I would be keen to use the College again for our next event.
Thank you so much for the amazing conference you helped us to run on Friday. It went like clockwork and everyone was very complimentary about the surroundings and also the delicious food. There were no technical glitches, which meant we kept to time really well.
First and foremost I just wanted to thank you and your team for everything. Everything ran smoothly, everyone was amazingly helpful, the rooms were great, the food was good. So on behalf of myself, the management committee and all who turned up: Thank you.
A really great experience. Situated centrally. Lovely, friendly staff and perfect wedding venue.
Thank you for your hospitality for our meeting at Murray Edwards on Tuesday. The catering was all very good, the staff very professional and the A/V equipment all worked right first time. We had a very productive day – many thanks.
An exceptionally pleasant experience in lovely surroundings, a comment echoed by many of the guests afterwards. The bright, spacious venue was enhanced by having free access to the patio and garden on a lovely sunny day. Everyone on the staff was very helpful and obliging. We were very happy with all the care and attention given to our event.
Thank you so much for making everything so easy for us last week and your efficiency. It was so nice to be back at Murray Edwards again and have complete confidence that everything would run smoothly!
Just a few lines to thank you so much for looking after us so well at our immersion workshop on Thursday and Friday. Everything I asked for was done with great professionalism and everyone I dealt with at the college could not have been more helpful and friendly. Please pass on our thanks to all concerned and we look forward to being back with you in September.
