The Gonville Hotel
Very Good8.0
A quiet and convenient stay
Parking was available albeit at £15 per day, the welcome at reception was good and our room large, comfortable and quiet although no view. The food was good and nicely presented. Service in the bar was a bit slow. The hotel is in easy walking distance from the colleges and main shopping arias.

Very Good8.0
The hotel's location is perfect for the local attractions. The room was spacious and had a lovely, comfy bed. The concierge was very friendly and extremely helpful. He even took me for a spin in one of the hotel's vintage Bentleys and told me all about the history of the the local area! My only negative comment is that there was a lot of building work going on and the car park was full of construction vehicles! Also, the hotel charges £15 to park for the night (I have never paid to park in a hotel car park before!) Other than that, my stay in the Gonville was extremely pleasant.

Quiet and comfortable
It was excellent, lovely quiet room right at the top, comfortable bed. Only hassle was car parking which is quite right. You have to pay £15 to park it overnight.

Fantastic weekend
This was a treat for my mum for her birthday. We had the most amazing weekend. The staff couldn’t do enough for us and added little treats to help us celebrate. The food was delicious and the guided tour in the Bentley was amazing. The hotel is incredibly well maintained and the beds were the comfiest I’ve ever had in a hotel.
