Great hotel in great location
Great hotel in a great location. Service and food is excellent. Rooms are compact and comfortable. They have parking - which is great in Cambridge. Bicycles you can borrow. Short walk to main Cambridge sights.

The Gonville Hotel
Sumptuous old fashioned high quality service
Lovely high class hotel, attentive and efficient staff offering a superior level of service. Very good restaurant but be prepared to pay for the quality. Well appointed rooms, not as spacious as a modern chain concrete hotel but well designed and furnished.

Short stay meeting up with family
Stayed one night and found staff very good. Bedroom was well appointed and quiet. Food in brasserie was great. Good location for a walk into the city too.
