Breakfast

Breakfast is served 8am – 9am in the Hall unless organised otherwise by your conference organiser. Please check your schedule for specific details. For smaller groups and private B&B guests, vouchers for breakfast in Pembroke's café, Farthings, may be given instead.  

WiFi

Free wireless internet connection is accessible throughout the College for conference guests. A username and password specific to your conference will be issued with your room key/card on arrival. B&B guests have access to the public WiFi network The Cloud.

Farthings Café

Pembroke’s on-site Café is open from 8am – 6pm Monday – Friday. All guests are welcome to use this facility throughout their stay.

Smoking

As well as being College policy, the smoke detectors do not allow smoking, candles or fragrance sticks of any type in the bedrooms, corridors and Conference rooms. Aside from the risk of fire, the smoke may activate the alarms and result in a false emergency callout.

Lost Property

Any personal belongings left behind after a function will be held in the Conference & Events Office for a maximum of 21 days. If they are unclaimed by this time they will be disposed of.
